At this time of year, a cold or flu is easily caught. Whilst it’s always better to prevent rather than cure, sometimes, even those who are strongest get sick. But don´t worry! We have got the perfect natural remedy for the flu for you:
This anti-inflammatory bomb is perfect to drink first thing in the morning to strengthen your immune system, kill bacteria and as a natural anti-inflammatory and painkiller. Did you know that turmeric is one of the ingredients in painkillers like paracetamol and ibuprofen?
- Juice of half a lemon
- 1 glass of lukewarm water
- 5 cm of grated fresh ginger
- 5 cm of grated fresh turmeric (or 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder)
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- A pinch of salt
- A few drops of oil (coconut, olive or sesame)
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 grated garlic clove
- Warm the water in a pot until it becomes lukewarm.
- Squeeze the juice of half a lemon and mix it in a mug with the lukewarm water.
- Grate the ginger and turmeric into the mug and add all other ingredients and mix well.
- Drink up!
Note: It is best to drink this natural remedy for the flu this first thing in the morning, but you can make this as a tea at any time of the day as well.
Hope you will feel better soon!
