Immune Ginger

Immune Ginger

Feeling feverish?

Make yourself a cup of immune Ginger, rug up and sweat it out.

Place the following ingredients in a mug:

  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon of finely chopped or grated fresh ginger or ¼ teaspoon dried ginger
  • pinch of chilli powder or a little chopped fresh chilli
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic crushed or finely chopped
  • 1-2 teaspoons honey
  • Add boiling water and cover for 10 minutes.

Rug up, stay warm and enjoy this delicious brew. It will encourage a mild fever and induce sweating. Fever is one of the body’s first defences against infection and may help to relieve the symptoms.

A hot bath can also help to induce sweating.
