For years my grandmother's remedy to cure flu was the lemon, and so it was the remedy for most of other diseases. And i know now that she was not that far from the real remedy.
For the past few years I have tried taking advices from friends, relatives and coworkers on how to fight flu or even prevent it ahead. Though they varied, they all have one thing in common, The Lemon.
Now how to glue these two awesome remedies together? the good old boiling water.
Squeeze a lemon in a cup and chop an inch or two of fresh ginger, pour in the steaming hot water, and wait until it cools down.
BUT WAIT THERE IS MORE
while you're at it, add the magic potion, the green tea.
Green tea is full of antioxidants, cancer fighting agents and an immune system booster.
Green tea has strong anti-viral and anti-bacterial agents.
Basically make a nice and hot green tea, add fresh ginger, squeeze a fresh lemon on top, and drink up.
Drink it with a full stomach, as both ginger and lemon may give you heart burn while cleaning your stomach for you. You'll feel hungry an hour later as if you've never eaten before.
