Cold and flu season is upon us, and sometimes, even when you eat well, stay hydrated, wash your hands, and try to stay healthy, you come down with something! This happened to Dr. Paddock recently, so here's his recipe for a home-made cold buster:
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 garlic clove, pressed
1/4 tsp ginger powder
1/4 tsp cayenne
1 tsp honey
Combine all ingredients in a mug and add 8 oz boiling water. Stir together.
This is a spicy combo, but it will warm you up, soothe your throat, and get you back to feeling like yourself in no time! And remember, getting sick every once in a while is part of life! Take the time to rest and recuperate, and your immune system will be stronger for it.
