Tea cures all

Agua de manzanilla (camomile) probably the most commonly prescribed medication in all the places I've visited in Ecuador. Literally they use it for everything. Tonsilitis? Have some aguita de manzanilla. Vaginitis? Put some manzanilla up in there. Internal hemorrhoids? Steam of agua de manzanilla. I actually did a little research on camomile tea, and apparently it is supposed to help with inflammation and stress. I think I'm going to take a couple kilos with me before I go back to school then.
