Hi, I’m Dr. Carolee Johnson. Today I want to show you a type of tea that I make to increase blood circulation to my brain. I’m almost 52 years old and so sometimes I have a little bit of short term memory loss; the words come a little bit slow sometimes. I make a tea that seems to help the circulation to my brain – I use ginkgo, kola nut, and rosemary, and then of course I sweeten it with a little bit of honey. Drinking this this tea opens up the capillaries in the brain and it increases circulation and gets things moving so that it helps with memory loss issues. For those who don’t remember their dreams, if they sufficiently increase blood circulation to their brain they may start remembering their dreams, so that can be an interesting secondary effect of this tea.
I don’t know how effective it would be in the case of someone with Alzheimer’s or some other chronic condition, but I’m sure that it would be beneficial. You can test that out by using muscle testing. Sometimes I’ll add a little bit of tamarind to the tea because it flushes the fluoride out of your brain and has antioxidant effects, so that can be really helpful. If you really want that tea to pack a punch, and you test good on nightshades, then you could add cayenne pepper to this and that will really get that blood moving up into the brain. Sometimes I do cayenne or a cayenne tincture.
Today I’m just going to do the rosemary, the ginkgo biloba, and the kola nut with a little bit of the tamarind and honey. The tamarind can be found online; it’s just pods that looks like this. I keep it in a Ziploc in my refrigerator. This is my mason jar teacup; I drink a quart of this tea at a time because I like it and it tastes so good. What I’m going to do is pull my tea kettle off the stove, pour that hot water over those tea bags, the tamarind and the honey. You want to be careful with the honey that you use; my honey is organic and local. Not all honey is 100% honey – some of it contains corn syrup and other things. So I am careful where I get my honey; I’m careful where I get anything. Nowadays you want to watch and make sure that everything is natural and organic as it possibly can be.
That’s how I make my tea! I enjoy it in the evening; you would think it would keep me up at night but I actually sleep better. So if you do have any issues with thinking clearly, short term memory loss, or even Alzheimer’s, the tea can help. If you need assistance with those issues, or any others, send me an email at email@example.com. Have a great day!
