Tea Renaissance

In the Rainbow Program we encourage you to drink as many as seven cups of herbal tea a day. This will help your body to detox and cleanse. It will also help regulate your acid-alkaline balance. Teas provide trace amounts of many nutrients and botanical active ingredients. More than that, they provide color in its natural wavelengths. Listed below are the herbs in their color groups. You can buy these teas in bags or in bulk. Try your local health food store.
