A gifted African healer from Ghana gave my fiancé Len, who had the flu, instructions for how to make and use this strong and delicious tea remedy formula. In getting the ingredients I bought out the store’s fresh Ginger supply and made enough of this potent tea to last for a few days. I drank some too because it had such a vibrant apple cider/ginger/lemon essence that I found irresistibly sweet, tart and spicy (and of course, I didn’t want to get sick either). I never got the virus and Len recovered without lung problems, to which he is prone:
Ginger helps stimulate a therapeutic Sweat. Studies also show that it helps fight against bacterial infections that may develop as a result of the viral infection. Lemon juice does the same thing, warding off secondary bacterial infections and giving a whopping amount of Vitamin C. Apple cider (and apple cider vinegar), is extremely rich in Minerals and has been employed since ancient times for this reason.
