Feeling funky?

Everyone around me is sick!!!! - my boyfriend, friends and people on the streets!!! The crazy weather is affecting everyone as per usual. I tend to get sick really easy but this time I have been taking extra care of myself with simple home remedies to prevent that nasty cold to come my way. 

All you need is:
-Fresh mint
-1 tbl spoon of grated ginger root or 2"  
-1 tbl spoon of  ground turmeric  
-Raw honey 
-1 lemon

Simply put the turmeric and ginger into a pot with 2 cups of water, bring to boil and add the mint, let it simmer for about 5-10 minutes, drain if you want (but I personally don't because I like the bits of ginger in my tea), add lemon juice,  a bit of honey and enjoyyy.   

 Living in NYC means your day goes on even if you have a cold so this is how I get through those kind of days...a whole litter to go!! My boyfriend knows I am obsessed with jars so he got me those sippy lids for all my jars :)

Ginger has antibiotic effects and can help with detoxification,  joint pain, circulation, nausea and motion sickness. 
Turmeric is a very strong antioxidant and it cleanses and detoxes the whole body especially the liver.   
Both turmeric and ginger are loaded with anti inflammatory qualities, they help with digestion, infections and both sooth and calm your  throat when sick or simply give u a boost when you need it. 

I drink this when I feel a little under the weather to boost my immune system or when I'm sick and need to soothe my throat, give it a try you wont regret it!! xx

Good vibes
