When your kids get sick it’s hard for any parent. Especially when that sickness comes with a cough and your little one isn’t old enough to have cough syurp. That’s when I pull out the witches cauldron (as many of my co-workers like to joke) and create my own homemade remedy: ginger root, lemon, honey tea. So simple and it’s incredible in helping get rid of colds and coughs.
Last time I used it my cold was half as severe and half as long as anyone else I knew who had what was going around. And when I’ve given it to Davis I’ve also seen her symptoms decrease and move though her quickly.
Ginger is an super healer. In Aruveyda, ginger is used mainly as a medicine and not consumed on a regular basis because it increases heat in your body which helps kill germs and bacterias making us ill. There’s a million things ginger is good for from joint pain (because it’s an anti-inflammatory) to digestion to coughs. But be warned, children not used to it might flush out a little, so you could have more diapers to change if your child is in them.
Honey is also an excellent natural remedy because it has antibacterial qualities and boosts immunity. Use local honey whenever possible because it has pollens from that area in it. This makes it especially good for allergy sufferers as it introduces the pollens in your body internal lessening your symptoms.
Since babies under a year can’t have honey, sweeten the tea with sugar or maple syrup (maple syrup being the better choice.) Lemon is of course chalk full of vitamin C and other health benefits.
