    I started drinking ginger turmeric tea about a year ago and have found it to be helpful and it does not muck w/ my mind like prescription drugs. There is a health and nutritional store is nearby small town. The teas there are also GMO free!! I also found that the Burdock tea has helped w/ my sleep.
    When using herbal teas one does need to be careful as they can react w/ other medications.
    Many medical doctors are not in favor of the use of herbs and would rather write scripts. I have been fortunate enough to find a family physician and pain specialist that do approve of herbs and spices. Took me a long time to find a team that works for me.
