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!
