Replied by Lanet from Durham, NC on 10/21/2008Hello, after reading this post about 4mths ago I told my friend about the gunpowder tea. He just decided to try it out last week. He noticed a big difference in his migraine headaches and he is very pleased with the product. He normally takes imitrex and it seems as if some of the side affects are just as bad as the illness. Thanks for the information.
Replied by Soph from New York, NY on 11/05/2010I suffer from menstrual migraines once a month. The city here has a cool tea shop so I bought some GunPowder Tea. This tea it truly works and I feel fortunate to have found the remedy for my migraines.
Replied by Carly from Duluth, Mn/ Usa on 02/18/2012My son got a horrible, throwing up migraine headache. He was laying on the couch clutching the edge of a blanket. I came to Earth Clinic thinking there might be something for him. Saw the Gunpowder tea, called the local wholefoods, and and sent my husband out to retrieve it. Brewed it, and sat down next to him to wait for it to cool while I wondered if he would be able to hold it down long enough to see if it helped. He actually wanted to try it, and drank 1 cup down. Within 5 minutes he was up and looking for some food. Amazing! Now I carry some (teabag) in my purse in case he gets a migraine.
At a basketball game, I gave some to a dear lady who gets horrible migraines. Her husband gave me a look of disbelief, but the next time I saw her, they were both beaming and telling me how much it stopped the pain and symptoms cold of her next migraine. Now, they share the good news with others.
I don't know why this would work, but it does.
I love Earth Clinic! My other favorite cure from here is the eggwhites for burns. It immediately stops the burn pain and prevents any scarring. Just do it right away and keep applying it.
Replied by Rsw from Uniontown, Oh on 03/24/2012I wake up many mornings with a headache which can sometimes ruin my day. I tried the gunpowder tea remedy that I saw here and to my surprise, by the time I finish drinking the tea, I am already feeling much better and am able to get on with my day. Thank you for sending in this remedy! No OTC anti-inflammatory had been able to help with this.
Replied by wendy from MA on 08/07/2022There are so many kinds online and my impression is that it is just green tea. What is it that makes "gunpowder" tea so different? Does anyone know?
