I have always been fascinated about the medicinal power of plants and herbs. Two years ago I took a course which was carried out by my friend George Ellinas, a great Cypriot herbalist. As I understood more about the medicinal power of herbs I started using them more and more in my dietetic practise. Herbs are now a vital tool for me and they help my patients heal and cope with various ailments. 

A fabulous herb is thyme or Thymus Capitatus.

Health benefits of Thyme:

  • Helps digestion
  • Relieves stomach pain
  • Prevents the formation of intestinal gas
  • Relieves colic pain
  • Helps treat respiratory disorders such as asthma
  • Treats colds, coughs and sore throat
  • Has excellent antibacterial properties
  • Treats skin inflammation and acne

Thyme tea can be taken 3 times a day. For preparation: Leave one teaspoon of dried thyme in hot water for 10 minutes and drain.

For digestive support you can also find thyme liquid extract.
