I love chamomile tea and have gone through spells of drinking a lot of it just because I like it. Sometimes I've thought it has helped a little, but not enough for me to really make that connection and drink it medicinally.

Help, yes, cure, no...research confirms that chamomile actually aids with menstral cramping, it's a great anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral so as long as you're not allergic to ragweed then chamomile can be beneficial.

I drink it mostly everyday and it does help (of course I take a combination of some other naturals as well).

Yes chamomile tea has great functions for your digestive system but Always use 100% organic chamomile

     It is also supposed to relax you.  However, even if I drink two cups at night, I still have to take a sleeping pill.

Yes, it's funny how it works with chamomile, if you drink it at night it can help you sleep, yet if you drink it in the morning/day it doesn't make you sleepy or anything.

Last time I drank it I was in complete remission, so I don't know. I imagine it helps. Also I find dandelion root tea helpful, especially drinking it before bed and laying down.
