Ginger/Lemon Tea Cold Remedy

My wife and I have used a cold remedy with such great results for so many years, we felt compelled to share it.  We just call it,  “Ginger/Lemon Tea”. You probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen.  If you don’t, you need to go no further than the grocery store to get them.
The ingredients are so powerful and the taste is so good you may want to sip on it anytime for immune support.  Why?
      Ginger Root:  Ginger has been well researched and many of its traditional uses confirmed.  Ginger is anti-viral and makes a warming cold and flu remedy and boosts the immune
                                            system.  Lalitha Thomas covers the many benefits of ginger in her book, “Ten Essential Herbs”.

      Lemon:   Lemon is a rich source of vitamin C.  It also contains vitamin B, riboflavin and minerals like calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium.
      Honey:  The benefits of honey don't just stop at satisfying the palate; honey also offers incredible antiseptic, antioxidant and cleansing properties for our body and health,
How to make your own “Ginger/Lemon Tea”
    1. Grate about one inch of Ginger Root
    2. Boil 1 quart of water
    3. Add grated ginger to boiling water and boil for 4 minutes
    4. Remove water from stove.
    5. Cut a whole lemon in half and squeeze both halves of lemon in water.
    6. Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of honey to taste and stir.
    7. Strain
    8. Pour a cup and sip
    9. Put remainder in a thermos or refrigerate.
If you have refrigerated the tea and wish to heat it up later, do not microwave as the microwave will destroy the good properties
