Another favorite at The Source, this healing thyroid tea has been selling like crazy. It’s really simple, and super healing for the thyroid and liver. I want to introduce you to my friend Christian Gonzalez, ND, (also known as Dr. G), who calls this tea “an ultimate concoction to support our thyroid.”
Dr. G and I will be collaborating to bring you some Naturopathic Q+A and recipes and tips to support your healthy life. Scroll down to the bottom to learn more about Dr. G, and to see his notes on each of the ingredients.
2 tablespoons organic lemon balm
1 teaspoon organic dried thyme leaves
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
+ lemon, honey, dulse flakes
Just brew the lemon balm, thyme, and fennel seeds in boiling water and then add fresh lemon, honey, and a pinch of dulse flakes.
