Stress Sick Tea Recipe

Sorry for not posting for a few days, I got sick with cold/strep symptoms: a sore throat, swollen nodes, headache, body ache and so I went home to my parents house to let my mother take care of me and went on a fast of everything except water and this sick tea composed of lemon, honey, cayenne pepper, ginger, and chamomile. This Stress Sick Tea Electuary is one of the new items that will be available in my shop in the update later this next week.

But, to make your own basic similar sick tea, here's a recipe.

Boil two cups of hot water, pour into heat-safe mug.
1 lemon, cut in halves.
1 Tbs. powdered ginger or several slices of ginger root, whichever you have is fine.
1 Tbs. honey or to taste
1/2 tsp. of cayenne pepper or just a dash if you can't handle that much.
a tea bag of choice: peppermint, chamomile or green tea all have medicinal properties and could help the taste.

Lemon will help detoxify your liver and is chock full of Vitamin C, Calcium and other vitamins and minerals that will help your immune system fight off bad bacteria.
Ginger is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent, can help with indigestion and nausea, bloating and boosting the immune system.
Honey is antibacterial and antifungal which can help fight off infection and also soothe your sore throat.
Cayenne is one of the most important and powerful ingredients in this tea, as a cold-busting and bacteria fighting antifungal and anti-irritant it can also help with headaches, digestion and help produce saliva.

Another important thing to do when you're sick is NOT TO EAT SUGAR OR PROCESSED FOODS! I personally just fast with water and this tea, but if you can't do that, eat soups or soft foods without too much dairy or sugar.
Hope this recipe helps you! Namaste!
