Your digestive track is the hub of your immune system. Keeping it in tip top shape will help you fell better. I myself am very sensitive to stress. This tea has helped me with my slight gluten allergy as well as keeping stress at bay. This is one way I incorporate healing living foods into my everyday life. I incorporate other stress reducing activities such as going to the beach, massage, pedicures and meditation. Having a happy immune system that is supported in a good way plays a tremendous role in our stress levels. If you have a gluten allergy, celiacs disease or general digestive issues due to stress this homemade simple Tea will provide great healing for your internal gut flora.
1 teaspoon of raw unprocessed honey
1 teaspoon of organic cinnamon
1 teaspoon of slippery elm powder
You will have to keep mixing it as the slippery elm will sink to the bottom.
Slippery elm powder cannot taste very good by itself but when you add honey and cinnamon to it, it transforms into a yummy and delicious tea.
Raw honey VS processed honey
For healing purposes you need everything that the bees produce. So the honey that you want to purchase will look white and be thick in consistency. Raw honey that’s been unprocessed carried all the healing properties your digestive tract needs to help decrease internal stress on your body. I love using the Really Raw Honey company and buy it in 2lb jars, plus there is free shipping! Per their website this is what raw honey contains:
“Really Raw Honey is a totally unprocessed whole food, that is never heated or strained, and contains all the pollen, propolis, vitamins, enzymes and trace minerals the bee’s put into it. Creamy, smooth and spreadable, Really Raw Honey is more solid than liquid and each jar is capped with crunchy bits of honeycomb, pollen and propolis.”
YUM YUM YUM!
Slippery elm powder
Slippery elm is great for digestive relief. it’s a derivative from the inner bark of the elm tree. When taken internally it forms a film over any mucous membranes that comes in contact with and the FDA has even approve slippery elm as a safe digestive heaving herb. It helps to reduce inflammation and can coax the throat as well. I have found that taking it in the powder form as a tea is the best way to get the healing benefits and its the yummiest way.
