BUNMI’s EPIC TEA
When Bunmi was in India for two months, she was not feeling fine. Unfortunately, she had high blood pressure and she felt very dizzy. After all checks, the doctors asked if she had tried traditional practices?
And this was the moment, in which she realized that there are plants, spices and teas that can be used as a medical treatment.
Bunmi remembered her grandmother how she collected spices when she did not feel good as a child. Instead of taking chemical pills, Bunmi believes we should embrace the power of natura in healing some of our daily pains. That is why, she wants that young women understand that:
Natural teas and spices can
be our natural medicine!
The Reason why this story started
My grandmother used to say that “there is medicine is in our food”, and for the first time I became a guinea pig to my own experiments and started using a combination of these spices and herbs in my tea drinks I found myself using herbs and spices like Asafoetida, Bay leaf, Cardamom, Chilli, Cinnamon, Cloves, Papaya seeds, Neem, Coriander, Cumin, Curry leaves, Fenugreek, Garlic, Ginger, Nutmeg, Pepper, Turmeric...to make hot and cold tea drinks, I boil them in hot water and take them before going to bed and first thing in the mornings.
I realised that I would sleep like a baby at night and was energetic during the day. My coffee intake also reduced from 2-3 cups a day to 1 cup a day. It may interest you to know that I no longer take medications, I go for regular tests and checks and discovered that all my vital statistics are normal. Will I say that these spices, and herbs made me well I can’t say because there is no scientific proof, however I believe that the use of these herbs have made me better and there is medicine in our spices and herbs. This led to the birth of Your Epic Teas.
Since generations herbs and spices have been used to treat human ailments. Our spiced teas play a crucial role in health maintenance and promotion including certain medicinal activity like expectorant, carminative, diuretic.
The active photochemical derived from these spices have provided the molecular basis for these actions. The active ingredients have a wide variety of bio functions and their additive or synergistic actions are likely to protect the human body against a variety of insults.
Traditionally spices, as part of the diets, can have holistic effects on human health.
