Citroenmelisse (Lemon Balm)


I also posted this post last year and it is more topical now than ever. More and more people are experiencing symptoms with the nervous system. Covid certainly has to do with this. In fact, many lung Covid patients suffer from this. Tingling, numbness, burning sensations, tinnitus, cardiac arrhythmia, pressure on the throat, chest pressure, dizziness, difficulty breathing, difficulty sleeping and many other complaints related to an inflamed nervous system.


Lemon balm is very important because it can repair nerve damage. I recommend lemon balm tea to everyone, it has tremendous healing power and it is very easy to use. I drink it almost every day as a tea, it is delicious and also good to mix with another tea or several! This plant is wonderful and today I tell you more about it.


It is also known as Lemon Balm. The botanical name is Melissa officinalis and is an essential herb for calming the nerves, especially those involved in digestion. Many people suffer from various sensitivities in the gut, with complicated and confusing misdiagnoses. What is often behind these problems are nerve endings that have become hypersensitive around the digestive organs. Nerves play a role in many of the digestive problems we experience today. Think about constipation, abdominal pain and abdominal bloating, among other things. Inflamed diaphragmatic nerve (which controls the diaphragm and thus affects the stomach) and Nervus Vagus nerve (which runs through the diaphragm and controls the stomach and digestion) are sometimes behind digestive sensitivities, as are nerves connecting the spine and digestive tract. If a person's stomach or intestines are irritated for no apparent reason, it is usually due to sensitive nerves. A common symptom is that food (even something that is very easy to digest) rubs against the inside of the intestinal tract, making someone with sensitive nerves feel uncomfortable. Nerve sensitivity can also cause symptoms such as nausea, loss of appetite and a sudden urge to go to the bathroom when nervous. Lemon balm is a gift from God and from Mother Nature to deal with all that is sickening; it is great for dealing with all these situations with its calming properties, which come from bioactive phytonutrients, that calm the nerve receptors in the digestive tract, reducing nerve sensitivity and reducing inflammation. This makes lemon balm a valuable herb for stress relief.

It works great for getting better sleep; sleep quality will improve noticeably. And lemon balm doesn't stop there. It is an all-encompassing treatment with a high contribution to almost every part of the body. Extremely high in trace minerals such as boron, manganese, copper, chromium, molybdenum, selenium and iron, lemon balm also has large amounts of the macrominerals silicon (important for collagen building, read more). In addition, it is a B12-conserving herb, which means it controls your stores of this vitamin and keeps your body from using it all up. Lemon balm works antiparasitic, antiviral and antibacterial throughout the body, fighting Epstein-Barr virus, shingles and other herpes viruses such as HHV-6. It is a great herb for inflamed pharyngeal tonsils, an inflammation caused by streptococcus bacteria. In addition, lemon balm detoxifies the liver, spleen and kidneys and helps reduce cystitis, making it a star for relieving all possible infections involved in the bladder and urinary tract (UTIs).


How to use

Lemon balm often grows in your own garden and is considered a weed, but it really isn't! It looks a lot like mint. Pick it fresh from your garden and pour boiling water over it and let it steep for 5 min or longer. You can also buy the dried lemon meringue tea, I always buy it from the brand Jacob Hooy, which I like best. You can buy it at any tea store and in some supermarkets. You can also look it up on my website and you will be redirected to an Internet store.


Well use it to your advantage and enjoy this delicious tea!


And please remember my lecture on nervous disorders on May 17. Maybe you know someone who is dealing with this and you can share this info with him or her. With the information I share at this lecture, someone can get started right away and begin recovery. Thank you!
