Ginger Tea

I had been sick for a few days a week ago. It started a sore throat. When I realized I got some flu bacteria, I immediately began taking ginger tea. I felt the tea was efficacious right away. Next day, the pain became worse. I continued taking ginger tea every couple hours. I also took lots of rest and ate nutritious food, which is easy to digest. A few days later I completely recovered from the summer flu.

Before I discovered the power of ginger tea, a sore throat was usually a sign of horrible distress. Typically it developed fever and runny nose and more than a week of suffering.

I was always depending on medicines when I had a sore throat. But when I stopped taking them, the flu symptoms always came bake and became worse. But one day, I decided not to take any medicine. Instead, I frequently took ginger tea and gargled with salt. Surprisingly, these ancient treatments really worked for me. Since then, when I have a just minor throat pain I try not to use medicine and support my own power to cure my sickness.

1 cup of hot water
½ teaspoon of grind ginger
1 teaspoon of honey

Mix all of the ingredients.

  1. I love ginger tea. It's a warming tea and I drink it to sweat out colds or flus. From the Traditional Chinese Medicine point-of-view, ginger helps remove water or dampness in the body.
    Glad you posted your experience with the healing power of ginger tea on your blog!
