Arabian physicians in the 9th century favoured senna as a treatment for constipation. Today, senna is well-known as a scientifically-based, effective laxative. In this therapeutic teabag, I have blended senna with camomile, peppermint and fennel to ensure a gentle laxative action and a pleasant-tasting tea, suitable for adults and children over 12 years.
Take to assist in the treatment and relief of constipation.
Infuse one teabag with one cup of boiling water, steep and cover for ten minutes.
Adults and children over 12 only: drink one cup daily before bedtime.
Use only as directed.
Contraindications: abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, intestinal obstruction, stenosis, atony, inflammatory colon diseases, appendicitis, severe dehydration and breastfeeding.
Medical advice is recommended during pregnancy and lactation.
To avoid constipation it is recommended to exercise regularly, drink plenty of water and increase fibre in the diet, as the continued use of laxatives may cause serious bowel problems.
If symptoms persist, consult your healthcare practitioner.
