So it is that time of the year when someone or the other we may know is suffering from cold. If that is you or your family member, I highly recommend you try the following:
– Avoid being out in the cold, eating cold foods and bundle yourself if you do step out.
-Drink Ginger Tea
-Cut down spices from your food
– Drink ginger cinnamon tea 2-3 times/ day. Follow the steps below to make this tea:
2 Glass Water
2 sticks of Cinnamon
1/8th tsp fresh ginger grated
2 tbsp honey
Boil water, add all the spices. Do not add honey. (Honey should never be cooked) Boil for a few more minutes. Now turn off the heat, add honey and stir well. You can now store this in a thermos or in any container and continue to drink a few times throughout the day.
– Make sure you slow down and rest. The body needs to re-coop and direct all the energy to the body for healing purposes.
-If possible fast. It’s usually the undigested food in the food that is causing all the congestion. So cut down on heavy foods, eat light. This will give your digestion a rest and you will recover sooner.
