I've been suffering from never-ending sinus drainage with accompanied sore throat and flegmy cough, so I found this recipe online, and added some of my own stuff to make it even yummier.
What you need:
Fresh ginger root
Herbal tea (I like thyme or chamomile)
Just cut 3-4 pieces of ginger and throw them in your tea cup. Add honey, lemon juice and your tea and pour hot water over it all. Let it sit for a couple of minutes. The taste is so healthy and fresh that it's going to make you "sick". Its great for colds, upset stomach, cramps, muscle pain and hypertension. Its also a great way to relax before bed (ginger makes your body feel nice and warm), and also wake up in the morning.
Forget coffee - have ginger!
