Tea, yoga and Ayurveda

Dr Milind Jani, founder of Pavilion Healthcare, explores the links between herbal teas, yoga and Ayurveda

In parts of the world, people have been drinking herbal teas for centuries for their various health benefits or simply just to relax. For example, we all know how popular mint tea is worldwide. Floral teas like rose, jasmine and lavender have a more romantic feel; however, in Europe, sage tea has been popular among women to help with natural hormone balance – this includes symptoms that affect PMT, periods and menopause.

Natural herbal tea is perhaps one of the best and quickest ways to generate health benefits for all manner of things. That’s because the active ingredients – like antioxidants, flavonoids and eugenols in herbs – are absorbed much more quickly in the form of warm teas. Herbal teas are also very versatile as they can be drunk anywhere. The delicious natural flavours of ingredients like chamomile and fennel, or with spices like cardamom and ginger, give a satisfying fresh taste in addition to any great health benefits.
