This simple and pretty iced tea is a delicious way to harness the healing properties of lemon balm. Lemon balm is a gift from God and Mother Nature to deal with our frazzling world; it’s wonderful for addressing digestive issues, nerve related problems, nausea, loss of appetite, and more with its soothing properties. Its bioactive phytochemicals such as undiscovered alkaloids calm the nerve receptors at the digestive tract so that the nerves become less sensitized and inflammation reduces. This makes lemon balm a valuable herb for stress assistance. And lemon balm doesn’t stop there. It is a heal-all, with a high contribution factor to almost every part of the body.
Anti parasitic, antiviral, and antibacterial throughout the body, lemon balm fights the Epstein-Barr virus, shingles, and other herpetic viruses such as HHV-6. It’s an amazing herb for tonsillitis, which is inflammation caused by strep bacteria. Plus, lemon balm detoxifies the liver, spleen, and kidneys, and helps reduce bladder inflammation, which makes it a star for alleviating interstitial cystitis and urinary tract infections (UTIs).
Raw honey is saturated with more than 200,000 undiscovered phytochemical compounds and agents, including pathogen-killers, phytochemicals that protect you from radiation damage, and anti cancerous phytochemicals. When drawn into cancerous tumors and cysts, this last class of phytochemicals shut down the cancerous growth process—meaning that raw honey can stop cancer in its tracks.
Lemons improve digestion by raising levels of hydrochloric acid (good acid) in the gut. Tone the intestinal lining, cleanse the liver, and offer replenishing calcium to prevent osteoporosis when the pathogen that causes thyroid problems prompts nodule formation throughout the body, which uses up calcium stores. Lemons also balance sodium levels in the blood, which allows for electrolytes to become active and improves the neurotransmitter activity that has been hampered by the pathogen's neurotoxins causing brain fog and other neurological symptoms.
