In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in natural and preventative health care as more research supports what Benjamin Franklin knew all along: that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. More people are now realizing the benefits of using natural products to take a proactive role in their health. Herbal Tea Remedies is an e-book designed by Aimfire, LLC that provides users with herbal tea blends to ease symptoms of many common ailments.
Herbal Tea Remedies provides recipes for 78 herbal tea blends that address a variety of discomforts, from upset stomach to fluid retention. The tea blends are numbered for easy reference, with an index for quick referral. Herbal Tea Remedies is easy to navigate, featuring a user-friendly e-book format. Most of the recipes are explained well enough, but some need a little more information as to what specifically they are supposed to accomplish (such as tea #9, Blood Builder Tea). Some of the herbs used in the blends may be unfamiliar to many people, but most of these herbs can be purchased at health food stores, and all of them can be found online. Some of these herbs can even be found in your kitchen cabinet (like sage, thyme, and marjoram).
Herbal Tea Remedies has a disclaimer at the beginning of the book, which is important for first-time users to read. Anyone using herbs should remember that certain herbs and herbal supplements can counteract drugs or complicate certain medical conditions, so it is a good idea to speak with your physician before using certain herbal supplements. If you plan on using some of these herbal tea blends, I recommend doing some research on the herbs that you will be using.
Herbal Tea Remedies is a great app for anyone with an interest in natural treatment options for common ailments. Some of the recipes could use a little more information, and it would also be helpful to have a glossary of herbs used in the recipes or Wikipedia links to the herbs for additional information. Overall, Herbal Tea Remedies is a handy resource for people who want a natural approach to symptoms.
