Mucus-cleansing tea

I have had the habit of drinking this mucous cleansing tea every fall for years.

This year it totally slipped my mind until today while I was getting a cupping treatment.  It is an adapted  recipe from the fantastic book Healing with Whole foods by Paul Pithford. If I was to recommend only one book for nutritional healing this book would be the one … I always return to it as a reference.

The recipe is as follows ;

pr one liter of water simmer

1 tb sp fennel seeds

 1 tb sp fennugeek seeds

1 tb sp flax seeds

1 tb sp liquorish root in pieces

for approximately 30 minutes

Then let water come off simmer and ad 2 tb sp nettle leafs and let steep,( not boiling), with a lid on for 10 min.

Drink at least  one cup daily preferable on empty stomach for 21 days.

The tea will gently clear intestines and lungs of mucus while replacing it with a healthy mucous membrane.

It is an awesome way to prevent fall-winter colds and generally strengthen our immune system( which is so closely related to the health of our digestive system) and can also be taken at other times when a cold is coming on or going around,

I usually make a bigger batch and keep it in mason jars in the fridge.

Cold the tea is a bit jelly like due to the flax seeds so I prefer to drink it while hot just take care not to boil as you heat it in order to preserve the goodness of the nettles.

It may seem like a bit of a production and it is not always easy to bring in a new habit for a longer stretch like 3 week.

Your body will thank you though and it is worth it!

I got the ingredients  today and will be brewing this up in the morning.

For tonight I am sipping a glass of wine in front of the fireplace that I lit for the first time this season .

Happy Fall.

I promise …it wont make you feel like the  Mad Hatter…but I do love this image.

  1. Dear person: I hope to try your tea in the fall as I have mucus especially in my throat and I am overweight. I believe that it will work if I try it. I ask that our Lord Jesus Christ to bless you as His child and protect you from all harm and to show you how much you are loved by the Savior of the World. Danielle
