Cold-Fighting Recipe

I’ve been seeing a lot of patients with annoying cold symptoms lately, probably due to all these rapidly shifting weather patterns. At the first sign of a cold, I whip up a batch of this special recipe and it works like magic: I’ll sweat a little, go to bed, and wake up feeling completely healthy. It’s super easy, quick, and tastes delicious (especially if you’re a fan of spicy food, as I am). Here it is:

  • Ginger, sliced thin
  • honey
  • lemon
  • clove
  • cinnamon
  • cayenne ...
