“I Have A Cold” Broth!

herbal broth

While I’m waiting for this batch to steep, I thought it was worth sharing  my little “I Have A Cold” broth.   After an hour of acupuncture I still feel, well… not good… so, here’s the recipe that is cooking up:

“I Have A Cold” Broth

  • A big finger of ginger
  • A piece of turmeric (or turmeric spice… though I prefer the root, raw, if it can be found!)
  • Fresh cilantro
  • You can add fresh basil,  too, but today I wasn’t feeling it.
  • You can also add onion, but that’s not what I felt like sipping today, either!

Add everything to a large pot of boiling water and let it go for a minute or two, then shut off the heat and let it steep.  Strain into a cup and sip, adding some sea salt and/or cayenne as your particular cold demands!

This all day plus very light food plus tons of water plus sleep = cured!  If not right away, much more quickly!

Feel better fast! xoxo Dana
