Several years ago, a friend was having issues with high pain levels caused by Rheumatoid Arthritis. I set out to create an herbal blend for her to help reduce the inflammation and pain. That was the inspiration for our ArthriTea WellTeaing blend.

The goal was to reduce inflammation, increase circulation, and cleanse the blood and tissues. It also increases diuresis in order to help remove the biochemicals that cause pain responses in the body rather than just moving them around to other places in the body.

One of the main ingredients in ArthriTea is angelica root, which has some incredible anti-inflammatory benefits, especially when combined with the other anti-inflammatory herbs in the blend, such as our lemongrass and ginger. The dandelion in the blend helps the blood to metabolize all the chemistry flushed out of the inflamed areas but also helps with the diuresis. There is also a hint of fennel, which contains anethole to inhibit and prevent inflammation. I top that list off with some good old-fashioned white willow bark to relieve pain. White willow bark acts as an analgesic through its concentration of salicylic acid, a natural form of aspirin which will not destroy the lining of your stomach or damage the liver.

I often use a blend of rooibos and honeybush as the base for my herbal blends mainly due to the highly assimilable vitamin and mineral content; plus they both have great flavor and are caffeine-free, so you can drink them whenever best fits your schedule and needs.

In fact, the ArthriTea blend turned out to be even more effective than I anticipated. Many customers tell us that they find relief by drinking it on a daily basis. It’s not just for chronic arthritis or pain but can be very helpful with acute situations as well. We have had people tell us it sped up their recovery after surgery, reduced pain associated with fibromyalgia, and even a testimonial that it helped reduce inflammation after a broken bone.

Today it is estimated that 90% of our chronic healthcare issues are caused by or related to inflammation. If you are looking for an alternative to addictive opioids and over-the-counter pain meds, it is well worth trying something that is natural, loaded with vitamins and minerals, and available at your friendly local one-stop tea shop.

In traditional Asian medicine, Astragalus is a star component of many classic herbal formulations. It’s a powerhouse for the immune system but also supports numerous internal organs including the spleen, liver, lungs, respiratory system, circulatory system and urinary system. It is considered an overall body tonic. 

Astragalus is used in our Defense Boost WellTeaing herbal blend because of its amazing immune-stimulating effects as well as for its ability to facilitate the production of white blood cells. Specifically, it boosts T-Cell 1 & 2 production, which are known to not only stimulate the immune response but also the natural production of antibodies and antigens that are a crucial part of the immune response. Astragalus has been shown to help patients receiving chemo therapies to recover more quickly and extend the longevity and quality of their lives.

Having adaptogenic qualities makes astragalus a versatile herb to use for a variety of issues.

  • Antibacterial and antiviral qualities make it great for healing the common cold or flu, and it can even be used as a topical remedy for healing open sores or wounds.
  • Supports healing from chronic viral hepatitis through liver support and reducing damage to the liver tissue.
  • Helpful in the treatment of diabetes by balancing blood sugar levels.
  • Free radical protection, functioning much like an antioxidant.
  • Slows the aging process by reducing stress on cells.
  • May help athletes utilize oxygen better, thereby helping recovery after workouts and supporting energy levels during them.
  • Helpful in treating kidney disease by helping the kidneys process cortisol and other inflammatories present in the blood.
  • Lessens the severity of seasonal allergies by reducing inflammation of the mucus membrane of the sinuses.
  • Because it is high in iron, it may help in the treatment of anemia.

If you are feeling constantly fatigued, stressed out, chronically ill, or need immune support, astragalus is an ancient treasure that can be a star in your lineup for longevity and a healthy lifestyle.
