Can Typhus Sufferers Not Drink Rosella Flower Tea?
Hello, doctor. I want to ask, my mother 2 days of drinking tea brewed rosella flowers, which she said could be used as a medication for hypertension. He said, it was sour, and he had a history of typhoid. So far there have been no problems. Can rosella tea affect or trigger recurrence of typhus?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Today, many people consume rosella tea (hibiscus tea) for various purposes, including to reduce blood pressure in people with hypertension. Not only that, consumption of rosella tea is also believed to be beneficial for overcoming various other health problems, such as high cholesterol, fever, phlegm throat, bacterial or worm infections, digestive disorders, uterine disorders, heart problems, nerve disorders, and so on. However, you need to know, that the truth regarding the various benefits of this rosella tea actually still needs to be proven through further research with appropriate clinical trials. Therefore, the consumption of rosella tea alone to overcome hypertension (without taking anti-hypertensive drugs and also without leading a healthy lifestyle according to doctor's recommendations) is not recommended.
So far, there have been no special studies that have tested the effects of consumption of rosella tea on people who have had typhus. In general, if the typhus that your mother has been suffering from has previously been treated properly, and was declared cured by a doctor, this action may not be dangerous. However, if after consuming the rosella tea, your mother experiences complaints, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps, allergies, etc. in order to be handled properly.
To help your mother control her hypertension, you can encourage your mother to undergo the following tips:
Don't be too quiet, be active. Exercise regularly. Reduce foods that are high in salt, saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Don't stress excessively. Maintain ideal body weight Get plenty of rest. Hope it helps.
