KICK A GERM JUICE: How to Fight off that Nasty Cold!

So my daughter’s cold has taken residence in my nostrils. It’s not pretty –thankful for the Puffs with lotion or I think my nose would be rubbed clear off my face by now.

 

Time to steep some Kick a Germ Juice!

 

 

 

Kick a Germ Juice:

 

This brew will make you sweat and bolster your immune system to help fight off a cold. I know, I know, the garlic and cayenne may sound gross in tea. But give it a try, it actually tastes fine and you can just feel the goodness happening. It’s like somehow your taste buds know this is just what you need at the moment.

 

Here’s the recipe:

Fresh Squeezed Juice of One Lemon

1 tsp of chopped fresh garlic

1 tsp of chopped fresh ginger

dash of cayenne pepper

honey (preferably local, raw)

 

Place ingredients in a large coffee mug. Pour boiling water over ingredients. Steep for 10 minutes. You can strain if desired. I prefer to leave all the stuff in the bottom of my mug, refill and get a few rounds out of it. Add raw honey to taste.

 

My ritual is to take that first sip and raise my mug in a big “Cheers” to my teacher, Greg Bantick, L.Ac., who first told me about this healing tea. Cheers Greg!
