Healing your body with Ginger-Lemon Elixir
Updated: Nov 15
- 1 big pot (soup pot) of water (8+ cups)
- 2 bunches organic ginger (roughly the size of your hand)
- 4 juicy lemons
- 2+ heaping tsp Turmeric
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1+ tsp black ground black pepper
- 10+ cardamom seeds (crushed)
Bring your pot of water to a boil. Cut ginger into little chunks, leave skin on, add to the boiling pot of water and simmer for about an hour.
Remove ginger and a little bit of the ginger water into a Vitamix or blender and puree until smooth mixture. Return mixture to pot of water. Add the Turmeric, black pepper, cinnamon and cardamom and continue simmering for a couple of hours.
You can begin to drink as soon as you want. Best to strain the pulp through a strainer or cheese cloth.
After a few hours of simmering, I strain the liquid, and add the juices from the lemons and store in glass container(s) in the fridge. Heat-up the liquid , when you want it and add some honey to your cup or thermos of healing goodness.
+ You may add a bit more once you get playing with this recipe to your taste.
You may save the strained ginger in the freezer until you want to use it later on as a warmed poultice on your chest if you have trouble breathing.
Also... I've been gargling with a tablespoon of water and 9 drops of Oil of Oregano when my throat gets scratchy. Here's to your health!
