My Home Remedy to Fight the Flu, Colds, Coughs and Sore Throats

For centuries, ginger has been a natural remedy in combating all kinds of ailments. Loaded with antioxidants and vital minerals; this wondrous herb has a wide range of health benefits Treat yourself with a (warm or cold) cup of refreshing homemade fresh ginger tea.


The Chinese have been using Ginger for over 2000 years as a natural remedy for respiratory ailments, allergies, improving blood flow, boosting immunity, stomach aches and stress relief.  It also tastes great too! It's a very soothing drink if you're feeling under the weather. 

Ask me how I know. It's also good anytime.


Fill a pot full of water, about one quart will do and boil it. Add about one half cup of thinly sliced fresh ginger root and simmer for a few hours. The more ginger the better and stronger it is. The ginger fills the kitchen and smells unbelievable....this is my aroma therapy for stress!


Strain your ginger tea when it's cool enough. I put cheesecloth in the strainer to get it perfectly clear. Next I add cane sugar. You can also use brown sugar, cinnamon sticks or honey if you like. 

Sometimes we like ours plain! We tend to eat the honey along with the ginger tea.
(Ginger tea is so refreshing.) 
Now add about the same amount of water when you first started your brew. Filled your drink container with the ginger tea and put it in the fridge so it gets nice and cold.

 
*You can also add lemon or orange juice to the mix and keep it in the fridge as an anytime drink.

You don't need to be sick to enjoy ginger tea. It's so much better for you than soda. 
I'm just saying!

*
Ginger tea is also good for nausea but do not use sugar if you're making the tea to treat nausea.

FYI......Scientific Name: For Ginger - Zingiber Officinale

ENJOY
STAY WELL!
