Benefits of thyme
If there’s one staple in my holistic medicine kit, it’s herbal teas. Not only are many herbal teas kid-friendly (my kids will drink anything if I put enough raw honey in the mug!), but they also provide many immune-boosting benefits. Herbal teas have been the cornerstone of my healing from chronic illness, too. Today I want to talk about the benefits of thyme tea.
Thyme is an herb that’s quickly become a power player in our medicinal kitchen. In fact, we even started growing it here at the house so we have quick access to freshly harvested thyme. Thyme has many antiviral properties and if you drink thyme tea regularly you can reduce your overall viral load according to Anthony William, the medical medium I credit with bringing me back to health. Anthony’s book and healing protocol for Epstein-barr Virus are the reason I’m as healthy as I am today.
Thyme tea’s antiviral superpowers make it a wonderful regular healing tonic for chronic illnesses like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Tinnitus, Hashimoto’s, Vertigo and even Multiple Sclerosis. The health benefits of thyme tea are worth making this a regular addition to your weekly health plan. In my own healing from the Epstein-barr Virus, I found that regular use of antiviral herbs like thyme helped me greatly over time in my recovery.
The healing benefits of thyme are not only for chronic illnesses. Thyme is a wonderful plant medicine to use when you are sick with a cold or flu. Making a cup of thyme tea to sip throughout the day is an easy remedy that is safe for both children and adults.
Thyme tea is easy and affordable to make. Try it the next time you feel a little under the weather and let this plant medicine bring you back to health!

- Additional immune boosters: 3 slices of fresh ginger, 3 slices of fresh turmeric, or a sprig of fresh rosemary.
