TON­ICS & TEAS

The Mail on Sunday - You - - Health - BY RACHEL DE THAMPLE (KYLE BOOKS, £9.99*)

Au­thor Rachel de Thample is a self-con­fessed brewer – not of al­co­holic bev­er­ages, but health-boost­ing in­fu­sions. This charm­ing lit­tle book of­fers recipes for reme­dies from kom­bucha, ke­fir and medic­i­nal vine­gars to herbal teas and my favourite ‘im­mune pow­er­house’, el­der­berry syrup with echi­nacea and gin­ger. Rachel al­le­vi­ated her achy joints with turmeric in golden chai, while her mother’s high blood pres­sure was quickly re­duced by drink­ing a po­tent pro­bi­otic drink made with beet­root and whey.
