For some strange reason I'm battling a mild cold. It must be the slowly shifting weather with cooler evenings and having the window open at night. How are you? Anyway, when yesterday I went to a natural store to pick up ginger drops, the owner told me a little secret on how to prevent future colds. Supposedly if you simply increase your intake of black pepper, turmeric and ginger to your meals just when the seasons shift, (like right now) you will boost your immune system and aid digestion in no time. Apparently, black pepper has energizing qualities, turmeric is anti-inflammatory and ginger has great antiseptic properties that work like a shield against germs. Who knew!
I'm curious, do you believe in holistic medicine? xo
P.S: This natural sore throat remedy, plus this is magical.
P.P.S: And this is a must for your shower!
