Not feeling up to par? Try ginger, turmeric & cider vinegar tea

DSCN4605I went to bed a few nights ago with a scratchy throat. By morning, it blossomed into a full fledged sinus infection.
So the first thing I did in the morning, after using my neti pot and gargling with warm salt water, was to make some ginger tea. Later on I’ll make some cider vinegar tea and perhaps some turmeric tea, as well. In case you feel sort of down, too, here’s the recipes and why they’re good for you.

Ginger Lemon (or just plain lemon) Tea

Stir together juice of 1 lemon
and 1 cup or so of hot water with honey to taste.

  1. If you want, add a couple teaspoons or so of fresh smashed ginger root or 1 teaspoon ground ginger paste, to settle your tummy and add some anti-inflammatory action.
  2. If adding ginger, let the tea steep 5 minutes, and then strain.
  3. Why this tea is good for you:
  4. Lemons contain vitamin C, which may decrease the strength of a cold, or flu virus. It helps reduce phlegm.
  5. Honey is antibiotic and antibacterial, plus it’s predigested by the bees to give you an energy boost.

Freeze lemons!

  • Freeze them whole. You will be amazed at the amount of juice you get after thawing. Freezing does not hurt the vitamin C in lemons.

Cider Vinegar Tea

This helps detox the body, as well.

Stir together:

  1. 1-1/2 cups hot water
  2. 2 tablespoons each: lemon nice, organic raw apple cider vinegar and raw honey
