AOM Student Association tea tastingIn celebration of AOM (acupuncture and oriental medicine) Day, the AOM Student Association hosted a tea tasting last week at the Whole Health Center clinic.

Students served a wide variety of teas while promoting their many health benefits. In addition to hydrating the body, herbal teas are rich in electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals.

As part of the AOM program, students study how different types of teas  can combat ailments like a common cold, the flu and even viral and bacterial infections. For example, ginger, which is considered anti-inflammatory, anti-parasitic, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial, has been used in oriental medicine for over 2,000 years for health conditions ranging from arthritis to the common cold. Astragalus tea is also popular in Chinese medicine and can boost the immune system as well as help ease physical and emotional stress.

To learn more about how acupuncture and oriental medicine can improve your health schedule an appointment at the Whole Health Center clinic in Lombard with one of our interns by calling (630) 629-9664.
