It always bears repeating that tea is a simple yet powerful lifestyle intervention. At the same time, it is no panacea. There are different types of tea, producing different effects, working with or against your current state. Chinese medical professionals specialize in reading the signs of your body and prescribing accordingly. The take-away is that tea, like food, is medicine but you need the right medicine for it to work for you.
