Okay, am I onto something? Drinking Yogi Tea
I have had feet, a back, and knees (torn medial meniscus) for quite some time now.
My knees have been good for a while...but they do that, going in fits & spurts. A Chinese TCM acupuncturist/acupressure practitioner told me years ago that my knees were cold and I needed to decrease the wind. He gave me a technique to try to help, but I was to keep extra cover over them as well.
My feet, well I am sure that plantar fasciitis was the issue. My right seems to have healed well for the most part and has hurt very little for a few weeks now.
My back...I have been doing some neck exercises & I think that may be helping with that a bit, but it was really good for 5 days (five!!!) Before I felt a tiny click & it started hurting again...but still not as bad as before.
For 2 days, my left foot has been hurting much less or not at all. It is a very strange sensation as I have gotten used to dreading getting up to walk or stand.
What I have been doing in the last 3 weeks is drinking a lot of yogi tea (fresh ginger, real cinnamon sticks, green cardamom pods, peppercorns & whole cloves in water, sweetened with honey, with a little milk added). These have great healing powers, some of it due to increasing circulation. I would drink this any day over water!
Could I be correct that this is bringing some healing to my body? It is really the only thing I've done differently (besides neck stretches) in this time.
I am leaning toward thinking so.
