It is good to enjoy rainy or winter days with a cup of tea and some of your favorite snacks but these gloomy days also bring on flu, cold, cough etc. So, how about enjoying a comforting drink which can help in boosting immunity and gives you some relief from stuffy nose, sore throat and even nausea. Yes, I’m talking about a cup of soothing Lemon Ginger Honey Tea. I would suggest that you all should keep this recipe handy for these rainy days or winters when you tend to catch cold and flu easily.
A lot of people prefer supplements like DIM detox for helping their body through healthy detoxification. Supplements work well in maintaining natural hormone balance, however, benefiting the same results directly from the ingredients is even more rejuvenating. Lemons are loaded with Vitamin C which helps to boost your immunity and detox your body. Ginger helps in digestion, nausea, and soreness. Honey is a natural sweetener and energizes our body. I have added a pinch of turmeric which is a powerful spice and boosts your immunity. You can check out the recipe and benefits of Turmeric Milk from my earlier post.
Here’s a quick video to show home remedies for common cold and flu.
