This week I've been under the weather with a cold and cough. I've a pretty tough immune system, but I like many got ill under the planetary activity earlier in the week. Anyway, I wanted to share with you the very simple anti-inflammatory and anti-nausea drink that helped me through.
You will need a small one person teapot (or double the ingredients if larger) with an infuser or good old fashioned strainer
1/2 lemon peeled and sliced - Root, Solar Plexus Throat support / vitamin C, immune boosting, alkalising
1 tsp freshly grated ginger root - Root, Solar Plexus, Brow support / antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, anti-nausea, immune boosting
1 tsp ground turmeric (or shave the fresh root if you can get hold of it) - Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Brow support / anti-inflammatory, liver and digestion tonic.
A pinch of chilli flakes - Root, Heart, Brow support - warming, natural pain reliever and boots endorphins for that feel better factor!
and an optional dash of agave syrup to sweeten (if you aren't vegan then use manuka / raw honey).
Place all the ingredients in the pot and steep in freshly boiled water for 5 minutes, stir and then drink away. I love it in all its neon yellow brilliance!
Until next time, be well!
