Food as Medicine
It seems everywhere I turn someone has a sniffle, tickle, sneeze, wheeze, someone is spluttering or coughing. I attack any symptoms with a vengeance with loads of freshly squeezed lemons for a wonderful dose of vitamin c and potassium, shave and add generous amounts of ginger to attack the bacteria and inflammation and then lashings of beautiful raw honey providing heaps of antioxidants to help soothe a sore throat, it has antibacterial properties and it gives the body energy to boost the immune system and fight those nasty cold and flu germs.
Sometimes a big jug of lemon water left overnight in the fridge with slices of lemon, squeezed citrus with chunks of ginger makes for a refreshing drink and a natural boost for the system and helps prevent those horrid symptoms getting a grip. Delicious!
If I’ve got lots on or travelling I find a swig of lemon water or just a spoonful of raw honey will give me what I need to stay healthy and keep going.
