A little more than a week has passed after my surgery. I'm feeling so much better and with more energy. Also, I'm happy to tell you that the mysterious mass I had in my chest was nothing more than my thymus gland growing out of control. Now that the entire thymus has been removed, it shouldn't be a problem anymore. I can not begin to tell you how relieved I am. I also want to thank everybody for all the messages and emails, I really appreciate them.
This week I want to share with you a tea recipe that I drink ever since I can remember. I never knew how powerful this tea was until this week when I started to drink it as usual and suddenly I noticed that it was helping me with the pain.
I did a quick research online and found out that spices (specially cloves) are natural pain killers. Sage also has a lot of health benefits and it's very soothing, I love to combine it with mint for a perfect cup of tea.
6 cups of water
20 fresh sage leaves
20 fresh mint leaves
8 cardamon pots
1 large cinnamon stick
In a pot, add water and all the spices. Bring the water to a boil and let the whole thing boil for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and add the leaves, cover and let it steep for 5 minutes, more or less depending on how strong you like it. You can add honey if you like.
Please note, this tea works great for me and has helped me. I'm not telling you to stop your medications, if you have questions, please ask your doctor.
