Ingredients: Three slices of fresh minced ginger, raw brown sugar.
Boil in one-and-a-half cups of water for five to ten minutes. Add one tablespoon of raw, unprocessed brown sugar and enjoy.
#2: Castor Oil Pack for joint pain
Materials: Castor oil, a flannel or an unbleached paper towel, cling film and a hot water bottle.
Put one tablespoon of castor oil on the paper towel, let it absorb, and place on affected area (or put castor oil directly on affected area). Cover with a flannel and then cling film, to protect your hot water bottle from the oil. Place the hot water bottle over the plastic wrap and apply to your aches and pains for ten to twenty minutes.
#3: Neti Pot for clearing out the sinuses
For sinus congestion, allergies aand to prevent colds.
Materials: Neti pot, sea salt, baking soda, lukewarm water.
In the neti pot, mix one-quarter to one-half teaspoon of salt with one-quarter teaspoon baking soda, add lukewarm water and stir. Rinse each nostril with the liquid three to five times. For first time users, I recommend letting the liquid flow straight back and spitting it out your mouth. The baking soda creates an alkaline environment, which prevents bacterial overgrowth. If you experience burning, increase your vitamin C consumption and reduce the amount of salt. Avoid using the neti pot while you are sick.
#4: Dry Brushing for healthy skin and lymphatic system
After showering, towel dry your body. Use a firm body brush (I like sisal brushes) and brush your skin vigorously from the tips of the fingers and toes toward the heart. Avoid the face and delicate areas. Moisturize as you normally would.
