Best Way To Flavor Water

So we need water to survive and we are also always told to have supplement this and drink herb that for better health. So I’ve found a really awesome way to combine the 2!

My herbal professor used to say never drink water alone, add herbs to get all the benefits and healing properties of the herbs. Perfect way to kill 2 birds with 1 stone. Here are the favorite things I add to my water every day.

 

Cinnamon

It’s warming to the body and delicious in flavor and also awesome for you too. It is loaded with minerals, including manganese and calcium, and contains essential oils with potent anti-inflammatory properties.

Apple cider vinegar

Great at regulating the body’s acidity (pH) levels, easing digestive discomfort, relieving heartburn, helping to prevent seasonal illness, and reducing inflammation.

Fennel

Fennel is sweet and aromatic and can help those who need to have something sweet or are used to sweet drinks with meals. Fennel is known to have antioxidant, digestive, carminative, and anti-flatulent properties. So great to take after a heavy meal and when you feel gassy.

Black Salt

Not the crappy table salt but a pinch of the unprocessed, amazing salt that have lots of trace minerals that a lot of us are deficient in.

Mint Leaves

Everybody loves mint. And we are perfectly familiar with it. But did you know that as a palate cleanser, mint can help you better digest your food? It also soothes stomachs and help reduce inflammation

Sage

This is really high in antioxidants so it can help protect your cells from damage caused by free radicals, which often results in impaired immunity, and chronic disease. People in the Caribbean use it to shorten the length of a cold and heal laryngitis.

First of, what’s a yeast infection? It is simply put an overgrowth of yeast. Yeast is one of the many types of bacteria that grow in your gut, mouth, genitalia and other body parts. Normally yeast levels at kept at bay by other beneficial bacteria but sometimes, that balance is thrown out of whack, causing the yeast to grow and causing the awful symptoms you may have experienced, like:

  • burning sensation
  • intense itch
  • pain and discomfort
  • redness (probably from scratching
  • discharge

What causes the infections? Well, I asked my OB-GYN and he essentially said that a hundred things can cause yeast overgrowth. The most common causes are:

  • use of antibiotics
  • poor diet
  • not cleaning up after sex
  • use of douches
  • excessive stress
