8 Herbal Teas Strengthen the Immune System — Heal Flu and Other Viruses http://b4in.org/jHKu

The joys of tea drinking have been known for centuries; and certain cultures have raised tea drinking to a ceremonial art. Drinking herbal tea for health not only offers the medicinal effects of the herbs included, but also the soothing mental relief provided by merely enjoying a cup of the steaming brew. Strengthen your immune system to protect against the flu, colds, or other marauding viruses of the season.

Making Herbal Tea

To make herbal tea, place the prescribed quantity of dried herbs in a pot of water and boil for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat and allow the tea to simmer for another 10 to 20 minutes or longer, depending on what your practitioner advises. Remove the pot from the heat and allow it to cool. Strain the herbs and drink the tea in portions as prescribed. Store leftover tea in the refrigerator for future use. Most herbal teas can be consumed either cold or hot. Use honey or stevia to sweeten if needed. If you prefer your tea hot, warm the leftover tea on a low light until the desired temperature. Do not re-boil leftover tea.

Chrysanthemum Tea

In China, chrysanthemum tea is used to cleanse the body of toxins built up in the blood, according to City University of New York. The tea not only provides purification for the blood, but also brings calmness and relaxation for the mind. Chrysanthemum tea may help you sleep more easily, relieving insomnia. Additionally, the tea has antibiotic properties and relieves secondary infections resulting from the flu, such as pneumonia.

Mullein Tea

Mullein is a well-known herb used for a variety of ailments related to the flu including sore throats, chest congestion, cough and earache. The dried herb makes a soothing tea, according, which acts to loosen tightness in the chest and relieve congestion. It is especially helpful when used as an expectorant to relieve coughing and other respiratory symptoms.

Astragulus

Astragulus is used extensively in Chinese medicine and is known as an immune system enhancer. Sstragulus is especially beneficial for upper respiratory conditions resulting from the flu, according to the National Center for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine. Take astragulus in powdered form or as an herbal tea. It is often used in combination with other herbs.

Hillary claims she read each and every email before deleting them?

If she read and deleted 1 email a minute, NON-STOP for 8 hours a day, 7 days a week, it would take over 62 days to complete.

Can we ever believe anything this lying harridan says?

#BreakingNews: Obama will sign a nuclear-arms agreement with Iran this Sunday 3/29. A day of infamy for the USA.

This is the beginning of the end folks.

Introduction
Rules of my threads: I monitor my threads.  If a particular participant is insulting, crude, rude to my friends or like-minded followers, I will delete their posts.  I will also delete any incoherent or pointless/rambling posts to my threads 

This has nothing to do with "free speech" or allowing counter point. It has to do with not wasting the time of other readers.

If you have a counter point, I welcome it.  Do it with respect and with logic and your opinions are welcome.  Be a pest with off topic stuff, rude, idiotic or obscene rant and you will be deleted.

If that behavior continues, you will be blocked.

I also will unfollow others who do not monitor their own threads and allow trolls to become a nuisance.

The point here is establishing a "signal-to-noise" ratio that encourages intelligent discourse and productive conversation.
