Tea Time

As the winter weather settles in, I am always grateful for the opportunity to drink a warm cup of tea. There are so many different teas available that can be quite helpful for many different health concerns, as well as being enjoyable to drink. One of our favorites is green tea. Green tea is an amazing way to stay healthy, while enjoying a cold winter day. It is full of polyphenols and catechins, two substances that are effective at promoting good health in a variety of ways. Here are just a few of the health benefits of drinking green tea:

1) lower cholesterol
2) less risk of certain types of cancer

Immune Health

Even more so, most of us don’t even know how to define optimal health. Our medical model teaches us that health is the absence of disease. We can guarantee you that health is much more than this. There are millions of people who don’t have a diagnosable disease, but are still in poor or mediocre health.

Interestingly, there are also many people who do have a disease but are in good to excellent health. How could this be? Because we define health in a much different way than our western medical model does. We define health as the absence of addiction, not disease. Health is about living spontaneously.
