Details to keep in mind

In addition to hydrating your body and helping you urinate, hot drinks (teas and natural infusions) can generate the feeling of overall wellbeing and help you avoid industrial drinks. This can help you to detoxify your river and improve your health.

Before beginning any treatment based on nutritional plants (infusions etc) it’s important to visit your doctor, especially if you are taking any medication. There are some herbs and spices that can cause issues.

To ensure that these plant-based medicinal drinks are useful, you should be mindful of how you take them, which is why it’s important to consult your doctor first.

The drinks that we have discussed in this article can form part of a healthy lifestyle, but you definitely shouldn’t use them as a substitute for food or medically prescribed treatment, under any circumstances.
