This honey, lemon, and ginger tea is amazing. My mother-in-law makes is often and it has helped me so much. When I ran out after using it all winter my seasonal (mostly spring) allergies came back thanks to the high pollen levels in Virginia. After a few days of drinking the tea 2 times a day I was back to my normal self. No more itchy eyes, sneezing, runny nose, congestion, and having to take over the counter medication!
I always would prefer a natural way to relieve symptoms and boost my immune system before taking medication. Now some people are exhausted their body’s own defense system to fight off illnesses due to using medication always. I used to take Claritin for several years till it just wasn’t working anymore, Allegra, Zyrtec, and more just wouldn’t give me a break. Now I can go back outside during high pollen specials and enjoy spending time with my family.
This honey, lemon, and ginger tea has more than helped my allergies. It absolutely a tons of health benefits! I can only see them with seasonal allergies; however, I will take the immune boosting as well since I am a mom. Moms don’t get sick days and if they do it’s not when they have infants or toddlers.
Here is a list of some of the benefits:
- Relieve cold and flu symptoms
- Helps with seasonal allergies
- Boost Immune System
- Aid in stimulating metabolism
- Alleviate nausea and vomiting
