The Dreaded Cold and My Miracle Drink

You might have noticed I've been pretty quiet and restless without any video activity the last week. That's purely because I unfortunately caught a dreaded cold—one of the worst ever as a matter of fact. Thus, I was barely able to get out of bed. Then, of course anything involving energy and voice usage was out of the question. I feel a lot better today. Hopefully, I will be good again by Tuesday, as I have some videos I've been itching to post on YouTube!

I like to share with you guys what has got me going the past couple of days and really helped to relieve my cold symptoms—my miracle drink! This would also work for flus.

It's actually quite an easy drink mix, as it exclusively uses natural ingredients and ones you probably already have in your home.

All you need is:
  • Green tea 
  • Ginger
  • Lemon/lime
  • Honey

Grate or thinly slice the ginger and place it in a small pot with the green tea. Wait until it boils. After, take it off the stove and put it in a cup. Add a squeeze of lemon/lime and then some honey for taste.

It also tastes great!

All of these ingredients are very high in antioxidants and vitamins. They are scientifically proven to be very effective in boosting your immune system and relieving common cold and flu symptoms, including headaches, coughs, sore throats and nose stuffiness. Because you're boosting your immune system, you can expect the cold/flu to last a shorter duration as well. This in my opinion is much better than continuously taking over-the-counter medications, as those only temporarily masks your symptoms.

So the next time you have a cold or flu, try this drink!
