Weekly Q & A with Facebook Fans

Rose

@Danielle- so glad you like the taste of DeTox. Our goal is to make being healthy also taste good. You’re right, most detoxifying herbs taste pretty bad. It’s quite a challenge to create tasty detoxifying teas, but that’s what we’re here for. Keep me posted on how your detoxification project is going.

 

@Gina- Using rose petals as a herbal tea is new to most of us here in America, but these great smelling flowers are popular herbs in Asia and the Middle East. Rose is cooling, and thus is used to soothe the skin. The cooling nature of rose means that it is an ideal tea for excess pitta.

@Xhiwin- everything that goes into the body and then into the blood goes through the liver. The liver has a big job to do. It’s the chemical factory and filter for the entire metabolism. Anything from common food to drugs to toxins, and yes, even herbs, could overwhelm the liver in overly large quantities. Fortunately, the liver has a LOT of reserve capacity, so it does not get overwhelmed easily. Of course, the health of the liver is determined, for the most part, by the substance it’s processing and some things are more toxic than others.

Feel safe and use herbs that have a long history of safe use to support your health. Please post a comment or email me if you have any further questions.
