ALAFIA IS HEALTH AND WELLNESS
The idea of wellness in a cup of tea is as old as human beings. Those who believe that nature has provided all the required natural remedies to at least keep us out of chronic illnesses are today champions of complementary medicine. Most people (over 80%) in the world today still depend on natural herbs which they make into teas that they drink to keep well. TEA is the infusion of herbal plants into hot water. Teas are made from different kinds of herbs. For instance, the herbal plant called Camellia Sinensis, depending on how it is processed or dried, becomes White tea, Oolong tea, Green tea or Black tea. On the other hand, the plant Aspalathus Linearis is only dried/ processed into red tea and green tea.
Tea beverages should be part of the nutritional approach to the achievement of wellbeing and wellness. It can be used to attack and defeat the cause of illness rather than treat the symptoms. A lot of science has been conducted on nutritional and health benefits of herbal plants that can be included in our diets and beverages. The art of nutritional healing is gaining more followers all around the world. Food and ailments are seen to be inter-related hence there is concerted efforts to remove the problems inherent in the healing system as it is practiced today. However, progress is been made in the natural supplement area and we can all help ourselves by thinking about what we buy to eat and drink and how close to natural they are.
More and more medical practitioners are beginning to incorporate the benefits of natural herbs and vegetables in their prescription for good health and wellness. They are now incorporating these natural sources of wellness as the frontline prevention of illness. In different parts of the world, this blend of ancient wellness practices and modern medicine have been complementary and better approach to what ails us.
Some people will argue that this combined natural wellness/supplementaHl approach with conventional (modern) medicine is the way to go and above all, it is a more economical path to regaining and maintaining good health.
Of course, it is at this point we have to know why natural herbs and foods that have been studied over the years and have been consumed in different parts of the world for centuries are beneficial to human health. Most if not all natural plants including herbs, fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants, more so in tea herbs. When these antioxidants are consumed often, they will start to help the body to combat free-radicals that are ravaging the body which leads to illnesses and early aging. Hence, antioxidants help the body to slow down aging and heal quicker.
The free-radicals cause oxidative stress in the body which makes the body to become more susceptible to illnesses and at the same time lowers and weakens the immune system response to defend the body. The need to prevent rather than cure illnesses is driving the natural health movement around the world in this 21st century.
