Healthy Roots Tea for the Alkaline Diet


A new groove is established, you’re seeing progress in your healing. And then it happens, you hit a plateau. Just like in most weight-loss journeys, which many of us can relate to, there is a plateau point that is difficult to push past in a healing journey. This struggle is how the Healthy Roots Tea was discovered.

My experience has been, this plateau happens to me when I have continuously neglected the importance of drinking herbal teas, eating foods, and doing exercises that improve and support the entirety of the lymphatic system.

Diet and lymph fluid. Of course it’s important to make sure that your diet is on point, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that you need it to be at a level of perfection. This tea is good for…

  • healthy immune system support
  • a good remedy for occasional post nasal drip
  • alleviating occasional mucus build-up that occurs after a meal.

When drank before a meal, this tea may help to improve proper digestion.

If you are experiencing occasional bloating after a meal, the tea could also help to soothe the bloated feeling.

Herbal tea to the rescue! Healthy Roots Tea may help you get back to the root of having good health. The roots, ginger and horseradish have been chosen for their ability to stimulate the organs responsible for digestive enzyme release, bile release and flow, respiratory system support, lymphatic system support, and proper digestive system function. These roots support a thorough cleaning out! Lemon has been chosen to enhance taste and for it’s support for a healthy immune system as well.

The tea works like a charm for me! It has a mild bitter taste from the horseradish, a mild warmth from the ginger, and lightly sour lemon flavor. It tastes like “I’ve got a job to do,” and it does it’s job well.

Here’s the Recipe:

Healthy Roots Tea for the Alkaline Diet


  • 1 inch piece Horseradish Root
  • 1/2 inch piece Ginger Root
  • 3 slices Lemon
  • 3 cups filtered water


Bring the water to a boil with roots and boil covered for 8 minutes, add the slices of lemon during the last 2 minutes for a total boiling time of 10 minutes. Then turn off the stove, leave the tea covered, and allow it to cool for at least 30 minutes before drinking so that the water becomes well infused with the roots and lemon. Store extra tea with roots in a glass jar in the refrigerator for up to four days.


How to take the tea:

When first trying the tea, it will be best to take a little and add more according to your tolerance. The flavor is nice and cleansing. If the flavor is too strong, it can be diluted with filtered water. An extra slice of fresh lemon can be added to enhance the flavor of the tea when drinking. Enjoy having it before a meal to help stimulate digestion, up to approximately 2 oz. The tea may also be taken between meals, and after a meal. 

This tea is generally regarded as safe, but it’s always best to double check if you are currently taking prescribed medications or are pregnant/nursing. If you have a history of impaired gallbladder, pancreas, liver, or kidney function take this tea initially in small amounts to test how well you tolerate it.

Cheers, to your health!
