Spa Cuisine: Arthritis Relief Tea Recipe

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.

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.
