Spa Cuisine: Arthritis Relief Tea Recipe

This pleasant-tasting, simple to make tea contains two arthritis-busting herbs: devil’s claw, from the Kalahari Desert, seems to be especially helpful for rheumatic complaints, with anti-inflammatory and mild analgesic properties with a cortisone-like action for stiff joints. Celery seed helps to counter acid in the blood.

Be sure to share this recipe with your friends or parents who may be arthritis sufferers.

INGREDIENTS PER ONE-CUP SERVING
1/2 to 1 teaspoon dried rhizome of devil’s claw, crushed
1 teaspoon celery seed
1 cup boiling spring water

1. Boil the herbs in the spring water for 15 minutes. Strain.

2. Drink 2 cups per day. Keep it up for a month to judge if it is effective in reducing your arthritis pain.

CAUTION: This tea is not suggested during pregnancy or for those with gastric or duodenal ulcers.

Also, i'll check about devils claw and see if it can be grown in England and post back soon folks xx
(take the devils claw out of the capsules, it may work more efficiently with your saliva...i'll do some research on it...xx)
