A Honey-Lemon-Ginger Infusion

It’s been getting cooler day by day fall is here and winter is just around the corner here in the northern hemisphere.  So far we have had the avian influenza and the pig flu last year, what will be the latest influenza this year? The colder weather seems to be bringing with it another round of sniffles and head colds. Doctors advise that there’s not much to do for a cold other than drink lots of fluids and get plenty of rest. I cannot really help you much with the rest, but I have  several suggestions for making those liquids go down easy.

A quick infusion of honey, lemon and ginger. Simply grate a piece of ginger (the size doesn’t really matter – some people like more some like less) into a large cup. Squeeze the juice of half a lemon in on top (you can also add the peal as well) and add a heaping teaspoonful of honey (feel free to adjust the sweetness level to your personal taste). Fill the cup with boiling water and stir to combine. Drink while still warm and repeat as necessary.

It will soothe a sore throat, help with the cough – honey has been found in scientific studies to calm a cough nearly as well as cough syrup. An alternative to lemon is my favorite kabosu and lime as well. I have a many more alternatives for the cold season including garlic on this site so please browse the further reading below.
