Are you one of those people who've constantly been suffering mouth ulcers (canker sores)? Mouth ulcers are those white or sometimes yellow cuts that are found inside the mouth. These lesions often sit inside of the cheek, roof of the mouth, gums and on the tongue. Canker sores can occur sometimes in clusters and can take up to two weeks to heal if left unattended.

The root cause of canker sores are yet unknown, however; there is no denying that these small cuts cause extreme pain and discomfort. Fortunate enough for some, these mouth ulcers occur for only three to four times a year but for others who suffer complex canker sores, especially those who previously had them, mouth ulcers occur even more often.

Ginger Tea: A Spicy and Healthy Remedy

Posted by     Healthy Tea      0 Comments  views (2256)

The smell of ginger tea has defined my college career. Living and socializing mainly with international students from China in my time as a college student, I've gotten used to the sharp smell and spicy taste of the tea that really isn't strictly a tea. While this drink obviously isn't like more traditional teas in that it's made from a root rather than tea leaves, I feel it's a must try for anyone who enjoys tea. According to Chinese folklore, the tea is good for coughing and colds, as it has a "warm" property. In China, the tea is usually made by boiling peeled ginger root and can have brown sugar added to it according to preference.

Over a half million people die every year from heart disease. Although heart disease in some cases can be cured, the key to avoiding heart disease is prevention.

According to the Mayo Clinic, there are five key steps to preventing heart disease:

1) Do not use tobacco of any kind (luckily, smoking is no longer considered cool)

2) Try to exercise at least 30 minutes a day (a walk is one of those things that's only tough to get started, but you love it once your up and moving)

The Healing Properties of Tea

A couple of days ago I had small accident.

We'll just say that I was perhaps a little too tired to be slicing an apple and in addition to a couple of ounces of beautiful, crisp, sweet gala apple slices, I wound up with a beautifully sliced thumb as well. It was almost like a surprise holiday bonus. Almost.

Anyway, since I use my thumbs quite a bit as a primate, writer, student, and assistant office manager, my first reaction after suturing myself up (thank you, Girl Scouts) was to scour the Internet for information on how I could help my injury heal as quickly as possible.

Ttea for hairea lovers, rejoice: you can use tea to give your locks extra luster this winter!

How, you ask? Well, the tannins found in tea can thicken the shaft of the hair, which of course makes hair appear thicker. Although there's no science to back it up, I have also found that my hair appears much smoother following what I call a 'tea rinse.'

The method couldn't be simpler.

Gingerbread Chai TeaChristmas is drawing near and a crisp chill is in the air as we all plan our holiday shopping lists. I was fortunate enough to get to sample one of the gifts I will be sending to many people on my 'nice' list this year: Gingerbread Chai Tea. Not only is this blend, which is a subtly spicy combination of Rooibos tea leaves, ginger, lemongrass, vanilla and cinnamon, incredibly tasty, but it's also very healthful.

Perfecting the Hot Toddy

Hot Toddy Tea

Brrr! It's getting cold here in NJ, and I have been retreating to my fall favorites to keep warm: fires, blankets, mulled cider, and hot toddies! I first experienced a hot toddy as a child when I was sick with a sore throat or when I came in freezing from playing out in the snow. My mom presented me with this, at the time, extremely potent concoction that was overwhelming to sip but definitely took the cold edge off. Since then, I've actually come to enjoy this hot tea recipe in the fall and winter because it warms you from the inside out, and so I have adapted my own versions to my particular tastes.

Stay Hydrated This Winter!

If you are like many people, myself included, it's hard to remember to drink enough fluids when you're not hot. Most of us remember that if we're exerting our bodies physically, we need to replenish them with water, tea, or other beverages; but when temperatures drop and we find ourselves shivering our way into work, hydration is not quite so intuitive. The fact is, however, that the white mist you breathe out is actually water vapor: you lose just as much water in the winter as you do during the summer!
