Sinus Mineral Tea

Try this tea if you ever need to unclog your nose or soothe your sinuses. It will speak of the power of food for all time. It also replenishes minerals when you’re dehydrated, and strengthens joints and bones. You can use it as broth as well.

1 carrot stick
2 celery sticks (organic because conventional is sprayed)
3, 4 cloves garlic
3-4 cups water

Bring to boil with vegetables whole or cut, and simmer 20 minutes. You can add a dash of sea salt halfway, especially in the summer, but it’s not necessary. The sodium from the veggies is just what the body needs and wants to assimilate. I can’t PR the minerals and silicon from the celery enough, a food that according to Traditional Chinese Medicine dries dampness. Vegetables that are tough and erect offer us those very attributes – they build strong bones. The vitamins A & C from the carrot help remedy upper respiratory issues. The antimicrobial properties of garlic are well known. When I have kale on hand, I chop the leaves into food and add the stalks to the tea. When I gave my son less than a cupful once, he asked for more. A friend with a bad cold who could not breathe or taste her food found her nose suddenly working when she drank this. You need to keep it up, though. No instant fix in pill or drink. I enjoy this between meals and scoop the vegetables out to add to food.

  1. Just found this – and at such a perfect time. My sinuses have been killing me for the past few days.

    Is it the garlic that helps the sinus cavities? I know it’s great for detoxing; just curious about it’s intent in here.

    • So sorry for the late reply. I was keeping up with comments until this crazy week getting ready for homeschooling. As I mentioned, the celery reduces dampness. (Kicks butt) And of course the garlic is antimicrobial. Thanks for the follow. How’re you doing? Did the tea help?? Xxxx Diana

    • Did it help?? And salt water drops up the nose, 3x each nostril (head back dangling off the edge of bed or tilted on the floor) a few times a day will help A LOT. Stings/burns but effective.
