Can i drink yogi honey lavender stress relief tea that contains chamomile,lemon balm ,and lavender with 1mg of ativan tonight?

Can i drink yogi honey lavender stress relief tea that contains chamomile,lemon balm ,and lavender with 1mg of ativan tonight?

Yes: That tea will have benefits in terms of helping you to relax, and, of course, the Ativan will also help you to relax. Both the tea and Ativan may make you sleepy so you'll be more sleepy and relaxed if you take the tea and Ativan together than Ativan alone, but it is safe to take both. But maybe if you take the tea you could get by with 0.5 mg of Ativan. The tea is healthier for you than Ativan. ...Read more

Is chamomile with anise tea good for face?

Is chamomile with anise tea good for face?

Chamomile: Some have used topical chamomile for eczema, but formal studies of this are lacking. This is not the same as drinking the tea -- for which i've found no references for skin conditions. Anise is a spice, used for flavoring and to promote digestion. I could find nothing about drinking anise tea for skin concerns. ...Read more

How much camomile tea is safe for an infant with colic?

How much camomile tea is safe for an infant with colic?

I never advise it: A light brew of chamomile tea may give you something to do but i can remember no research data showing predictable benefit. Teas have been offered for colic since the first written treatment books for kids in the 1700's & follow the assumption that the gut is somehow upset. Present thought finds it more a transient behavior/frustration issue. ...Read more

Im drinking Lipton Chamomile Tea every night. And PureHerbs LemonGrass Tea every after 2days. Is it safe? These teas are from teabags

Im drinking Lipton Chamomile Tea every night. And PureHerbs LemonGrass Tea every after 2days. Is it safe? These teas are from teabags

Pesticides & toxins: While chamomile and lemongrass are very safe, many teas are contaminated with significant levels of pesticides and the teabags can contain epichorohydrin, a carcinogen. Thus, get these teas only as organic from companies with safe teabags such as Numi, Rishi and Yogi (or get as organic loose tea & use tea ball).

Yes: Honey, and tea for that matter, are good for just about anything. Honey and lemon tea are not particularly famous for helping upset stomachs. If you have a stomach ulcer, some people argue that tea or lemon could be bothersome but that's not proven. Ginger tea is an ancient chinese and proven way to alleviate stomach upset.

How about gripe waters for reflux and gas issues for babies? How about mom drinking tea w/ chamomile, fennel , and ginger? What probiotics to use?

How about gripe waters for reflux and gas issues for babies?  How about mom drinking tea w/ chamomile, fennel , and ginger?  What probiotics to use?

Possibly helpful: As someone who practices integrative pediatrics, I do incorporate these remedies for colic/gas in babies. Gripe waters that contain small amounts of fennel and ginger are likely safe as are chamomile and fennel teas (for baby or mom - if baby is under 6m, don't give more than 1 oz 3x per day). Probiotics (bifidus, lactobacillus) have been shown to be safe and effective. ...Read more

Is frozen purple grape juice, apple juice and peppermint tea ok to drink for ulcer. Ipeppermint tea seems to calm tummy but some say bad for ulcer?

Probably OK: I see no problem with grape and apple juice, though i strongly recommend organic juices as both conventional grapes and apples are high in pesticides. The only reference i found re: ulcers says it should not be used in stomach ulcers because it lowers esophageal sphincter pressure, but i don't see why that would be bad for an ulcer. Many authorities claim peppermint tea is good for ulcers. ...Read more
