A simple fresh ginger root drink that will fight viruses, especially the respiratory virus HRSV.
  • 2 pounds fresh ginger root
  • several fresh lemons
  • cayenne pepper
  • turmeric
  • salt
  • raw honey, 1 Tablespoon per drink
  1. Juice (or grate, if you don't have a juicer yet, either) 2 pounds of fresh ginger root.
  2. Pour juice into a jar, cover, and refrigerate.
  3. Place 1 to 2 Tablespoons of this ginger juice into a mug, add ¾ cup hot water, juice of ½ lemon (good thing you've got a juicer, huh?) 1 Tablespoon honey (raw honey is also anti-viral) ⅛ teaspoon of cayenne pepper, ¼ tsp turmeric, and a pinch of salt.
  4. Drink 2 to 6 cups of this drink daily, at the first hint of a cold or flu. OR if anybody around you has the first hints of a cold or flu. OR if you just want to hedge your bets. OR if it's December and you want to stay healthy through Christmastime, for a change. :) OR if you develop a taste for it, as have I. We can belong to the same club. :)
