TO MY HERO’S GOOD HEALTH - WHY WE DRINK ORGANIC LEMONGRASS TEA
I’m a 53-year-old mom, but I look up to a 16-year-old boy. He’s the sweet son of one of my school mom friends, and he’s my hero. This teenager has been suffering from Crohn’s disease since he was very young. Crohn’s disease is an autoimmune disorder that causes chronic inflammation of the intestinal tract. This inflammation leads to severe pain, bloating, and diarrhea. Crohn’s disease can be a very debilitating disease, not only because of the pain it causes, but also because of the resulting health effects, it produces dehydration, malnutrition, fatigue, and a weakened immune system. My friend has told me of her struggles to find the best medical treatment for her son. He has been seen by countless medical specialists, undergone painful medical tests, tried various diets and physical therapies, and has taken many different medications with serious side effects. It has been an arduous journey for this young man, but he continues to face each day with a relentlessly positive attitude. He is always willing
to try new things that could potentially improve his health.
One thing he has tried recently is Organic Lemongrass Tea from Your Loose Teas. His mother brews him a hot cup with breakfast before school and packs him a thermos of iced lemongrass tea for his lunch during the day. Since drinking this tea over the past several weeks, he has noticed a difference in his belly symptoms, with less frequent pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea. While he credits some of his digestive success to his current medications prescribed by his doctor, he also feels that the tea has helped to make his disease more bearable. When he is at school, he doesn’t feel as tied to the boys’ bathroom or worry about feeling ill if he goes to extracurricular activities after school hours. His mom is benefitting from the tea as well. She gets to enjoy drinking a late afternoon cup of lemongrass tea with her boy, sharing some quality time with him as they sit at the kitchen table, relax, and chat about their day.
