I remembered seeing something about it being a temporary diuretic, and I just retraced my steps and found the item. It's from the website of a South African gentleman raised on rooibos who immigrated to Canada and then started importing the tea. He had all kinds of allergy difficulties after the move and was on medication, and once he started importing and drinking his beloved rooibos (just cuz he liked it and missed it), within weeks he also found he didn't need the allergy meds any more. Of course, some immunotherapy from site-familiarity could explain that too, but....
Anyway, he said this which might pertain to your husband's (I like the sound of that!) situation: Rooibos has been found to help with insomnia, disturbed sleeping patterns and headaches. It contains no caffeine and has a relaxing effect on the central nervous system. Have a cup of Rooibos before you get ready for bed to ensure a good night's sleep! BUT - don't get too enthusiastic: If your body is not used to this anti-oxidant rich tea, the initial diuretic effect caused by the detoxification of your body might lead to a few trips to the washroom which is not exactly what you need to fight insomnia, eh?
I just hate it when I drink things that make me want to go wash a lot.
