Cleanse your body, invigorate your blood. The rustic warmth of this formula is especially useful on damp, cold days.
As your body enters a natural cleanse cycle, the last two weeks of February may be critical for your health. The heavy snowfall & dampness characteristic of February is a sure sign that spring is approaching. Winter fat starts to melt, clogging your circulatory system, and making blood rich and oily. Without proper diet and herbal support, symptoms like a runny nose, watery eyes, dark circles, sneezing, coughing, itchy nose/eyes, asthma, and headaches run rampant. As dampness builds, you'll suffer from other ailments as well, like sore throats, puffiness in your skin, and heaviness in your chest. These are all important warning signs that your body's natural detox cycle is causing a buildup of congestion in your body. Take caution, as this is a peak season for serious ailments like congestive heart failure and heart attacks.
Sip Turmeric & Cumin Rescue Tea to ease February ailments. Cumin's warmth and rustic dryness soaks up the excess of spring moisture. It's pungency dilates blood vessels, helping blood flow smoothly through your veins and restoring your skin's healthy glow. Turmeric invigorates your blood and gets it moving again, dispelling winter stagnation. Turmeric helps to directly thin the blood, digest proteins, and metabolize fats efficiently. Together, these spices provide some relief from the imbalances of winter and the coming spring.
Clean Your Blood
Turmeric's powerful health effects are more beneficial in the spring than any other time of year. You may have heard turmeric toted as a cure-all herb: it's antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-toxicity, anti-diabetic, antioxidant, anti-cancer, and anti-Alzheimer. Turmeric is "anti" all things! Many of its contributions to your health are due to it's powerful liver and blood-cleansing ability. As your body naturally thickens your blood in the springtime, turmeric keeps it thins and light, helps to neutralize blood sugar, and destroys toxicity. It aids in digestive and respiratory conditions which run rampant in spring. In fact, turmeric acts as an antibacterial while restoring intestinal flora for excellent digestion.
With thick, heavy blood clogging your circulation in springtime, it's common to lose your appetite and feel sluggish. Cumin is an excellent digestive & stomach aid to restore your appetite. Its pungent warmth dries excess fluid from your circulation so that your limbs feel light and mind clear.
Fix Spring Allergies in Winter
If you already have allergies in the spring, it's too late; you missed the detox window. That's why blood detoxifying teas like Turmeric Cumin Rescue Tea are so important to incorporate while it's still winter. By improving fat metabolism and keeping your blood light, thin, and mobile, you set the stage for a healthy spring.
Turmeric Cumin Tea by Constitution
Thanks to its ability to calm stress, turmeric is a cleansing herb that in mild doses doesn't disturb vata. Cumin is also supportive of deficient vata dosha. Hot pitta constitutions, however, will benefit from using fresh turmeric instead of dried while making this recipe (dried is just too hot for pitta). Turmeric Cumin Rescue Tea is fully beneficial for heavy kapha dosha, who tends to suffer the most in springtime from congestion and stagnation.
