Therapeutic value of medicinal herbs

 

 

Winter is coming and you have again symptoms of flu or cough?

Help yourself to gain strength and fight the flu before it actually starts with

SEKEMs wide range of therapeutic herbal infusions.

Tea is one of the oldest and well known type of  medical applications.

In the past, herbal tea was the preferred way of taking medicinal herbs to help manage illness, treat symptoms or reduce the risk of disease.

However, due its high potential of effectiveness, carefully selected medicinal teas are considered as the treatment of choice for many mild ailments.

 

The therapeutic value of medicinal herbs really comes out when you steep or infuse them, and the benefits will be taken in by your body. Steeping or infusing activates the volatile oils in the herbs, which are the components that hold the medicinal value of the plants. You end up taking in all of the energy from the plant.

 

We at SEKEM offer you a good range of medicinal teas for the self-treatment of mild infections and complaints.
