I use it like a sweet as soon as I feel under the weather and can feel it’s benefits straight away. Keeps my throat warm when I’m out training clients.
There’s many ways you can serve it up:
1) cough sweet: chew it raw like a sweet and let it sit in your mouth releasing it’s juices gently into your throat and digestive system.
2) tea: chop it and let it simmer gently for 15 mins or longer till ginger has seeped into water. Wait till it cools and add honey and fresh lemon.
3) cooking: add it to stews, stir fries, cakes.
The beauty of ginger is it’s cheap and easy and doesn’t do you any harm so try it!
Go see a medical professional if you think you’re ill.
