Fresh Ginger

A Cup of Ginger Tea a Day Will Keep the Doctor Away

As the weather begins to transition from winter to spring, cold to warmer, wet to wetter, maintaining a healthy balance can be challenging. The unpredictable changes in temperature are common during the Kapha season resulting in a cold, the flu or just feeling sluggish. There are many things we can do to help us during this time like increase our vitamin C intake, take shots of echinacea, oregano oil, and many more.

All of these can help, but I am not sure how well they work with the root of where disease begins, our digestion.

In considering the importance of maintaining a healthy digestive system to prevent disease, I prefer consuming ginger. The heating element of ginger not only increases the digestive fire needed to maintain an active digestion, but in-turn helps prevent colds.

A quick, easy way to incorporate ginger into your daily routine is making ginger tea. A cup or two of fresh ginger tea takes minutes to make and provides the hydrating benefits of water with a little extra zing!
