Menopause Monday – Sage Tea Experiment July 21, 2014
Well, it’s been a week since I began cutting down my coffee and swapping yo,Sage and lemon balm tea.
I don’t know why I’ve wasted my money buying Mint tea bags? It’s so easy to make fresh tea from fresh herbs – you literally pour hot water onto herb leaves. No need for a strainer, bag or squeeze mechanism.
So, I now own 4 sage plants, 3 outside and one on my kitchen windowsill.
I’ve also invested in a glass tea pot – it has a fine sieve built into it- this makes it easy to see the brew in action. It also makes me feel that I’m having a truly clean drink.
How has the Sage tea worked for me? I do think the hot flashes ( I’ve been told they are Power Surges) have eased a lot. I’d gone from nothing to hourly flushes in just a week, quite a shock.
I do think that 3 or 4 cups a day has eased my symptoms a great deal. The surges are less frequent and less powerful!
I will continue with sage and try adding other fresh, soft herbs for variety.. I do like lemon balm, it’s a very fresh smell and taste. I’ve also noticed that my sweet tooth has gone.
Eat Clean. Train Hard. Feel Great.
