Dr Oz: Chinese Herbs & Teas Review
Chinese herbs are another international health secret that have been trusted for centuries. Could they be right for your health needs? Now that we’ve learned about Acupuncture, see how Chinese medicine can help fight fatigue and give you more energy. Also, learn about sleep pressure points and other ways you can incorporate ancient healing traditions into your regular routine. Check out Chinese teas, the Gui Pi Tang supplement, and even Dr Oz’s Olive Oil dry skin remedy.
Traditional Chinese Medicine dates back centuries, and relies on herbs like Ginseng. Herbalist Janet Tsai shared some of her favorite fatigue fighting herbs with Dr Oz. She said the most popular approach is using herbs to regulate your body’s natural processes.
Dr Oz: Free & Easy Wanderer Tea (Xiao Yao Wan Tea)
The first herbal remedy comes in a tea form. The Free and Easy Wanderer Tea consists of a blend of six herbs. It is a natural stress reliever and it helps improve the flow of energy throughout the body. It can be helpful for depression as well.
All you have to do is cook the herb down or let it soak in water to make your own tea. For best results with these Traditional Chinese Medicine practices, connect with a certified acupuncturist and herbalist. You can find one near you through NCCAOM.
Dr Oz: 4 Gentlemen Decoction Tea (Si Jun Zi Tang Tea)
Another helpful Chinese herbal remedy is also a tea. Si Jun Zi Tang translates to Four Gentlemen Decoction. Just mix four scoops of this into water to create the tea. If you like a weaker tea, this could be the one, because it’s not as strong as the Free & Easy Wanderer Tea. Dr Oz even said he liked this one.
Dr Oz: Gui Pi Tang Relaxation Remedy
Are you looking for a little help winding down and drifting off to sleep after a long day? Gui Pi Tang is a Relaxation Tea that can calm your busy brain and maybe even cure your insomnia. It is a sleep tincture, and you’ll want to be sure to take it two or three times per day, with your last cup about one hour before bedtime.
Dr Oz: Sleep Pressure Points Trick
Dr Oz also shared another sleep secret. You can use pressure points on your ankle to help yourself calm down and release tension. Just put four fingers together and measure up from your ankle. Rub this spot with your thumb to circulate energy and promote calm within the body. This is another great routine for just before bedtime.
Dr Oz: Energy Yoga Pose
Here’s how to do the yoga pose for energy that Dr Oz mentioned on the show.
- Stand up and pull your palms up.
- Stretch your fingers toward the ceiling.
- Arch your back and breathe deeply.
- Tighten your butt and relax your shoulders as you bend backward.
- Exhale and bring your hands down.
Just repeat that pose as often as you need to so you can get the full relaxation effects.
Dr Oz: Olive Oil Dry Skin Remedy
Are you dealing with dry skin? Dr Oz has a solution for that too, and it may already be in your kitchen. Extra Virgin Olive Oil or an Olive Oil soap can help you relieve dry or chapped skin. That’s because of its high content of Vitamins A and E.
