Sandi Rogers, CEO of the National College of Traditional Medicine, says viruses are a problem everywhere and no one is missing out!
“They all seem to be affecting the mucus membrane of the nasal passage or the throat.”
Sandi’s go to remedy has changed a little since it was last posted online to combat this new combination of head colds and chest.
Steep three teabags in 500ml of boiling water – let that draw, you want it to be nice and black
Finley slice half an orange with the peel on – remove the tea bags and add the orange
Add in half a lemon with the peel on, finely sliced
Two tablespoons of grated fresh ginger
A few peppermint or mint leaves (a small handful or a couple of tablespoons)
Then add in some honey
Allow that time to infuse
Make sure you get a little of the solids in the cup because it’s good to chew the orange, ginger, mint etc
Drink up to three cups per day – and make sure you eat the peel and the fruit!
