LIME MEDICINE TEA

This is the time of the year that everyone seems to be coming down with some kind of bug or cold. Well, thanks to my friend, Roman Hanis, Co-founder and Director of the Center for Indigenous Medicine of the Paititi Institute*, I have a secret recipe from the Amazon that is a great remedy for boosting up your immune system and staying healthy.

Lime Tea or as I would prefer to call it, Lime Medicine Tea, was discovered when the Paititi Institute was looking to find a natural cure for malaria. Through research, experiments and interviewing local tribes, they found that Lime Tea was very effective in preventing malaria. The Lime Tea “helps eliminate the protozoa of malaria of the affected individual before they are able to penetrate into the liver, plant eggs and reproduce.”

This is how powerful this tea is!

And it is so simple to make!

So even though I do not live in a malarial zone, I began to make LimeTea over this past summer. This is my new go to remedy when I’m feeling like I’m under the weather or vulnerable to colds or viruses.

I believe Lime Tea is a natural blood cleanser and can eliminate not only malarial protozoa, but all kinds of pathogens in your blood. I feel great when I drink it!

So I’m inviting you to try Lime Tea  -  the secret medicine from the Amazon -  and boost up your immune system...naturally!

  Lime Medicine Tea


This recipe is for two servings. If the limes are big, this can also be three servings.

Cut up 5 limes (rinsed and scrubbed)  into small pieces and put the limes - including the skins and seeds - into a pot. (I use a 3 quart pot.)

Add 3 cups of water, cover pot and boil for 30 minutes. (I bring the tea to a hard boil then lightly boil for 30 minutes.)


Let the tea cool and squeeze all of the liquid and pulp out of the limes. Discard the skins.

Drink one cup  30 minutes to an hour before breakfast and dinner. This is preferable in order not to interfere with digestion. Two portions a day work the most effectively. Refrigerate the unused portions.


Supplement with a probiotic, kefir, sauerkraut,  kombucha, etc. to replenish the positive gastrointestinal flora. - Ripples of Awakening: Malaria Resolved Through Natural Means by Roman Hanis.


*The Paititi Institute is a non-profit educational center located on 100 acres in the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest. “The center has been established as a model community, incorporating permaculture restoration and reforesting projects, forest gardens, a living library of medicinal plants, a department for Indigenous studies, and a traditional Amazonian healing center."

Roman Hanis and The Paititi Institute are featured in the documentary, The Sacred Science.
