Peppermint Tea & Tums
0

3 posts in this topic

Hi All,

 

My experience recently has been that having a cup of peppermint tea, zyrtec, and then a tums before bed helps alleviate tummy issues and sinus congestion at bedtime.  The zyrtec is to control my hive breakouts.  I don't do all these things at the same time.  I space it all out in a couple hours before bed.  I believe it also helps with my occassional tongue swelling.  Has anyone found relief doing this also?  And do you think it is ok to do this every night?  Am I on to something here?

 

Thanks,

Lillian

Have you been able to figure out what is causing the hives/tounge swelling?

 

As for the tea, there is no harm in that as long as your body can handle it.

 

I used to take tums before i went to bed because of my GERD. Outside of the calcium boost, i don't think it did any harm.

I relate the hives and tongue swelling to ingesting gluten, wheat products, beer, etc.  Seems to happen after I eat pasta, breads, and sometimes other foods that tend to bother my stomach.
