Home remedies for colds, sore throats and flu

18 Oct

Now that the weather are getting colder usually that means that the season for sore throat, cold, coughing and flu are on the way. It is better to be prepared for the upcoming winter.

In my household there are three things that I always make sure that I have in the home as soon as the weather starts getting colder. Those things are ginger, lemon, honey and garlic. Those are the things that gets my family through even the coldest winter days. As soon as anyone in the family starts to show any symptom of cold, sore throat, starts coughing or flu, then I start boiling this home made broth for them.

The kids can drink this because of the honey, which gives it a little bit sweet flavor. If you think it’s taste to strong then add water or put a bit more honey into it. On the other hand if you feel it’s not enough flavor then add to the ingredients. It’s really up to you to find the right flavor that suits your taste.

 

Recipe for home made broth 

0.5  liter water.

1 – 2 inch fresh ginger root – chopped into small bits.

 1/2 lemon – squeeze the lemon juice out.

1- 2 teaspoon honey.

(some people like to add one sector garlic)

How to prepare it:

You pour the water in a pot and put the chopped ginger (and one sector of garlic if you like) into the water when it starts boiling. You let it boil for about

three minutes, then you turn off the heat and squeeze half a lemon into it. Add honey to the broth and stir well. Now it is ready to consume.

You can keep it in the refrigerator for two days and just pour it into a cup and re heat it in the microwave.
