Ginger will be your best friend if you have a cold or flu! Fresh ginger targets ‘rhinoviruses,’ which are one of the most common causes of a cold! I know, who knew?! Use fresh ginger for your tea and then supercharge by adding honey (another immune booster)! It you reduce your tea tonic to almost half, you’ll find it nicely spicy!
Here are a few other ‘Healing Ginger Tips’:
Ginger Steam Inhalation: If you’re congested, for a fresh steam inhalation, add 1 tablespoon of freshly grated ginger to a pot of boiling water, boil for a few minutes then remove from heat and inhale deeply with a big towel draped over you head (it works, believe me)! Or just steam with your tea tonic before you add honey!
Ginger Bath: Mix one tablespoon ground ginger with 1-2 cups of Epsom Salts under hot running water and run yourself a warm cold-easing, muscle-soothing bath. Ahhh, heaven.
