My personal experience with tulsi.

Almost three years ago when I was in labor with my son at a lovely little birthing center, labor came to an abrupt halt after twelve hours and I had made no progress in dilating. We went to the hospital where they gave me pitocin to rev up labor but after a few hours I still wasn't dilating. Since my water had long since broke we had to go in for an emergency c-section. The surgeon found a softball sized fibroid blocking the birth canal along with a smaller one and a few more. She only removed the big fibroid and left the others behind to be removed later.

Afraid I would become pregnant again before I could have surgery to remove the remaining fibroids, I looked into ways to naturally treat them. I drank tulsi regularly and applied castor oil packs to my lower abdomen as research suggested. I became pregnant with my second child the following year and during the c-section only a few tiny non-threatening fibroid were found!

Today, I am currently sick with my "annual cold". When I felt the symptoms coming last night, I immediately made myself some tulsi tea. I drank three cups yesterday and this morning, I feel like poo but I do not have a full blown stay-in-bed-mommy-needs-a-day-off kind of cold. All of my symptoms are very mild, I have no fever and my nose is clear. I haven't coughed or sneezed yet.
**EDIT - I woke up the next morning feeling great!

Are you interested in giving it a try?

Tulsi tea can be ordered online and found in almost all health stores. It is available in bags, loose or in pill form. I prefer to drink it as the taste is quite splendid. It also comes blended with other herbs for flavor and added health benefits. Some blend options include, green tea, lemon-ginger, sweet rose, pomegranate, Masala chai and more!

  1. Tulsi is an adaptogen that helps your body cope with stressors over time. It's definitely a great tonic to add to daily health. Good job on the castor oil too which is amazing for joint pain! :D

  2. I had never heard of Tulsi tea. It soudns quite amazing. I love herbal teas, although since I bought a lot of them in 100gr loose tea bags and I don't drink it that often, a lot has dried.
