Autoimmune disorders are very frustrating and difficult disorders. When diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, what’s happening is the body is attacking itself because it sees your natural processes as invading and destructive pathogens, hormones, and cells instead of working “normally.” Celiac disease, Lupus, Hashimoto’s, and Rheumatoid arthritis are all autoimmune disorders, and they all have one thing in common: inflammation. Inflammation that stems from a compromised intestinal system as well as a compromised immune system. It’s going haywire!
So, what can we do? Well 1st step is to get the inflammation under control. Inflammation causes a lot of swelling around the part of your body that is being attacked. This is very painful, and it can be both debilitating and immobilizing. Countering the inflammation is the key to reducing pain, so here are a few teas to help you with the swelling caused by your autoimmune disorder:
Green tea helps to fight autoimmune disorders. Green tea contains EGCG, a polyphenol that provides dozens of other health benefits and is a super antioxidant. Meaning it fights oxidative stress. ECGC can influence your immune system, to a certain extent preventing it from attacking your own cells. It can reduce the severity of the autoimmune disorder. Though there is no known cure we can reduce symptoms and flare-ups often to zero.
Acai Berry Tea
Chronic pain can often be caused by inflammatory foods like white sugar, white flour, and artificial foods. Preventing the inflammation is possible thanks to the Vitamin C, plus B vitamins, along with vitamin A, C, E and K, which helps to boost your immune health. Try Buddha Acai-berry Green tea, for a pain-fighting dose of this important vitamin.
Ginger is a powerful anti-inflammatory root, as it contains zingerone, an antioxidant that can help to reduce swelling in your throat and lungs. You can drink a cup or two of ginger tea, and you'll find that it can help to relax your muscles and reduce the swelling in your body.
You may not want to make a tea with only turmeric, as the bright yellow root has a very strong flavor. However, our Stimulating Tea contains the root, which has been used for centuries by Ayurvedic healers to deal with autoimmune disorders. Thanks to the curcumin in the root, you can reduce the inflammation and pain caused by your arthritis, tendonitis, and other autoimmune disorders.
