Is it OK to drink holy basil tea in Cushing's Syndrome?

In a month now, I will be undergoing blood test for my cortisol level. I was suspected to have Cushing's Syndrome , but since, I took Decilone for almost a month, I was advise to wait for a month before taking the test. I am planning to drink Holy Basil Tea, is it ok to drink the said tea if I am scheduled for cortisol blood level test?

hello and wellcome to healthcare Magic ,yes it is ok to take this basil tea, but changes
affected from this tea is very less ,as this may be a supportive treatment but not cure,
raised level of cortisol is due to excess use of corticosteroids too so stoping of deciclone
would give you a good result,take care
