Flu and Cold Season Recipe
Autumn is here! Cooler weather is on the way and so is the flu and cold season. We would like to share a home remedy that can help to prevent or ease the symptoms of a cold. With just two household ingredients commonly found in most grocery stores you can fend off a bug that may lay you low for weeks. The moment you feel the first signs of an impending cold such as achey body, stuffy nose, or tickle in your throat do the following. Here’s the recipe:
One thumb size piece of fresh ginger medium chopped
3-4 stalks green onion medium chopped
3 cups fresh water
tsp (or less) brown sugar to taste
Put the ginger, green onion, and water in a medium pot. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and partially cover the pot and simmer for twenty minutes. Filter out the ginger and onion and save the liquid. Now, this part is important, drink one cup of the liquid and cover up with a blanket. The idea is that you break into a sweat. It is best if you can lie down and nap or sleep for the night. If the first cup didn’t make you sweat then drink another. This method works well in the very early stages of a flu or cold. Hold on to this newsletter and give this remedy a try if you feel like you are catching a bug.
