I have been kicking colds this season left and right. Dare I jinks myself but we have not had the flu. Knock on wood! Anytime I feel my immune system failing I have a few tricks and man I swear by them. I hope this is not too late for you. I guess you could call this drink a hot toddy but some would say it’s not a hot toddy without whiskey. I take this drink on the go and keep adding water. I call it ginger water if someone asks me. I like it better than tea, plus it’s less expensive. My coffee mug makes my coffee taste like ginger and I like it. This drink is versatile because you can add some other flavors. I hope you can enjoy this drink and kick any colds that might cross your path.
Grate, dice or mince the ginger. If using a garlic press to mince, press slowly into the mug because ginger juice squirts everywhere. Scrap the garlic press and scrape the ginger with a knife. Use as much ginger as you like. Dilute with hot or warm water. Stir in honey, cinnamon and turmeric. The ginger pieces sink to the bottom.
Other ways I keep my immune system healthy are:
Eat raw garlic
Drink a freshly squeezed lemon first thing in the morning.
Taking vitamin B 6 and 12
Taking vitamin D every day
Low or no sugar
Eat lots of food with vitamin C or take a supplement
Eat green vegetables everyday.
Oil of Oregono capsules or a drop on my tooth brush.
I wish peace and health to everyone!
