Infections and inflammation are the main causes of the disease, such as otitis media and the common cold.

Treatment for labyrinthitis should be indicated by an otolaryngologist and usually involves resting in a quiet, dark place, in addition to drinking liquids such as water, tea or juices. In this article, find out about a tea recipe for labyrinthitis by naturopathic herbalist André Resende.

Benefits of Ginkgo Biloba

benefits of vervain

With soothing, sedative and sweating properties, verbena tea is indicated to control anxiety, ease gastrointestinal spasms and act in the treatment of rheumatism, conjunctivitis, fever, stomatitis, pharyngitis and sinusitis.
