This is a tried and true MAGICAL HEALING ELIXIR. Whether you are dealing with a case of the sniffles, full-blown flu or anything in between, this DIY remedy will knock out anything that is ailing you and leave your immune system in tip-top fighting shape.
¼ cup fresh turmeric, roughly chopped (this can temporarily stain your fingers, so if you are concerned about that sort of thing, gloves are a great solution)
¼ cup fresh ginger, roughly chopped
¼ cup fresh garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
4 cinnamon sticks (or 2 teaspoons powdered)
1 tbsp. black peppercorns
6 cups water
1 tsp. local raw honey (optional)
Boil water and add turmeric, ginger, garlic and cinnamon and reduce heat to simmer for 20-30 mins. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly, add honey just before consuming to preserve the nutrients and enzymes.
Drink one cup every 1-2 hours until symptoms are gone.
