Boost the Immune System is key during the fall months. The minute I feel a cold coming on, I reach for my favorite drink – tea with lemon and ginger. I call this the “wonder woman ” drink because the ginger stimulates digestion and naturally combats infection.
The vitamin C from the lemon is awesome for the immune system. Plus, by adding local honey, you can boost your immune system naturally plus honey contains antioxidant polyphenolic compounds, which has been known to support cardiovascular health. So honey it up!
Meet your new BFF – Lemon and Ginger Tea
1 cup warm water
juice from one lemon
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
1 tablespoon local honey (if you have candida, in my experience I needed to omit and exchange for stevia)
* another option for those with candida, it to try manuka honey (this honey naturally fights bacteria and pathogens but a tad pricey)
If you have been struggling with the common cold and cannot beat it, or you feel tired all of the time, then it is time to clean out the pipes and cleanse. You can cleanse with me for only $67 and get 90 days of support here.
