A valuable helper is sage with its official name Salvia Officinalis. It works antiseptically and is good against inflammation, so it can provide relief especially in inflammatory diseases such as rheumatic complaints. Prepared as a tea and drunk on a regular basis – for example, a cup a day – sage tea can aid the anti-inflammatory diet.
In addition to its positive effects on rheumatism, sage also works against inflammation in the mouth and with sore throat and can also be used to gargle or as a mouthwash. And incidentally, the herb also acts as a liver tonic, helps to lower cholesterol, is used for hot flashes or used by mothers to help dry up milk. Sage also helps with digestion – especially after eating fatty foods (which we as Rheuma Optimists rarely have on the menu).
Overall, sage tea is a warming tea – or a cooling one, depending on whether it is drunk hot or cold, which can be combined particularly well with, for example, peppermint or lemon balm. This mixture also works wonders against stress and clears the mind.
In this sense – have fun enjoying sage tea!!!
