Have Mint Tea to Decongest the System | Yoga of Eating
In Nature, animals tend to fatten up before the winter to insulate themselves to survive the harsh winter cold.
In February, in preparation for the spring and warmth of the summer, they start shedding their fat.
Similarly, during this time when the Earth in many parts of the world especially in the northern hemisphere is getting warmer and transiting toward spring, many of us will tend to offload our fats.
This shedding of fat congests the liver and some of us may feel a sense of inner frustration and heaviness. This can be helped by having sipping warm mint tea. Mint has the remarkable ability to decongest not only many parts of the body but also the emotions.
