Fungus and Herbs That Heal It.

This #wellnesswednesday: It may not be pretty, but we’re talking about fungus and which herbs heal it!

In #chinesemedicine we treat two different types of fungus based on how it presents itself: heat with dampness VS. heat with redness & itching. 

1) If it has a lot of heat with dampness causing oozing, discoloration and swelling, then clove can be great for drying and resolving the dampness. You can find organic clove in our Fatigue tea blend.

2) If it has a lot of heat with redness and itching, then peppermint is the best possibility because of its cooling and moving aspects. Peppermint is found in our Hydrate tea blend. Why Peppermint? Because it is an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal that detoxifies the liver. Our Detox tea has peppermint and is another great choice for achieving this result.

This post was inspired by a question @jennymae.nutrition asked us. For many of us, its cold and damp out so we hope this post was helpful! If you have any health questions, comment or DM us and we will get back to you.
