Herbal remedies and supplements were very much in use in the days of the ancient Greeks, Romans and Chinese while Indians were famous for their Ayurveda system, which included the effective use of herbs in their medicines.
Herbal tea remedies have once again acquired much popularity with people of different cultures who have begun using these remedies in view of their obvious health benefits.
Herbal teas are made up of various leaves, roots, barks, flowers etc. that are infused with boiling water to bring out their medicinal qualities.
Plants used for herbal remedies and supplements are completely natural; man, modern methods, or medicine have not altered them from their natural state.
It is when they are in their natural state that their healing properties come into play - when the herbs are brewed and beneficial for the treatment of various ailments.
While modern medicines are considered more effective in the short term and in emergency situations, herbal remedies are more beneficial in resisting disease in the long term, and wiping it out completely, which is not something modern western medicine is known for.
Drinking herbal brews also provide additional nutrition to the body, which does not happen with today's synthetically produced medications.
Although there are some who enjoy drinking herbal teas for the taste - each herbal tea has its own designations and benefits.
The natural chemical substances in herbs help keep the heart and other vital organs healthy; they also create a sense of well being, reduce bad cholesterol, increase energy, and help increase a person's life span.
Herbal tea remedies have detoxifying properties that enable the cleansing of organs while improving digestion, and relieves bloating and other stomach problems.
Chamomile, Ginger, and Garlic are some of the most popular herbal remedies used for a variety of ailments.
Ginger for instance is a herb that used by itself, and also used with other herbs to relieve problems with digestion, dizziness, nausea and also for relief from muscle pain.
Chamomile has mildly sedative properties and works well for those with insomnia.
Jasmine helps lower cholesterol, while the effectiveness of garlic as an herb is too numerous to be put down in writing here.
These are just a very few of the herbal remedies and supplements that have been extremely beneficial for people down the ages, and continue to do so even today.
There are many others that have similar, or better curing properties, and are commonly used by those who know their medicinal effects and long term benefits.
Also, when compared to pharmaceuticals, the side effects of herbal remedies do not read like a list of the who’s who of other conditions and diseases that sound like the cure is worse than the disease.
However, this does not mean that herbal remedies are not without their downside because some of them can create various problems in people who are allergic to certain varieties of herbs.
Therefore, as always, before you begin taking herbal remedies its best to get advice from a doctor.
