Our Naturopaths prescribe and blend our Naturopathic Teas to have supportive and healing qualities and as an alternative to herbal remedies that may come in Tincture, Capsule and Tablet form. In many cases, the therapeutic quality of a plant can be enhanced when taken as a tea, due to the presence of water-soluble active constituents. In other cases, Herbs taken in tea blends are tonic in nature, thus they work by supporting your general health and physical vitality.
We have three Livewell Naturopathic Teas that are formulated for digestive complaints, improving your skin, and for Mothers to be. Personalised blends are also available in consultation with your Practitioner.

So what is Naturopathic Tea?
Naturopathic Herbal Tea has been used for centuries as a way to alleviate ailments and revitalise the body, offering a natural and organic solution with healthy ingredients. Naturopathic Herbal teas can be made with fresh or dried flowers, fruit, leaves, seeds or roots. They are made by pouring boiling water over the plant parts and letting them steep for a few minutes creating a beverage. The herbal tea is then strained, sweetened if desired, and served. Livewell Naturopathic Teas are a prescriptive recipe designed by recognised Naturopaths.
