Ginger Turmeric Power Tea
Another super easy way to boost up. First I soak both roots in water mixed with Braggs apple cider vinegar to clean them. Vinegar is a great natural cleanser. Then I slice the ginger root (skin on), slice the turmeric root (skin on), and boil. You can use as much or as little as you would like, your preference. I use a lot. One of my clients once referred to a batch I made as moon shine. I thought that was funny. This tea tastes good hot or cold. I don’t sweeten mine but if I was going to I would add a little bit of raw honey. Lemon is a great addition. I love fresh lemon juice. I think I’ll write about lemon for the next nutritional gem. They are definitely gems.
This is a great tea to drink if you are not feeling so hot. Turmeric has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-viral properties. Ginger is anti-inflammatory and anti-viral as well and it aids in the treatment of nausea and is therefore particularly helpful when you have food poisoning or a stomach virus. Both ginger and turmeric are fantastic immune boosters and great anti-inflammatories. *Inflammation is redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, heat, and disturbed function of an area of the body, especially as a reaction of tissues to injurious agents.
Well, here ya go – Here are a few more of Mother Natures precious gifts to keep you good and strong. Gems, if you will.
I’m drinking some right now. Cheers!
