It is the time for ginger!!! Ginger, like Elderberry has been extensively researched and proven to both stop colds and flus in their tracks and shorten the duration. IF used properly.
What is properly you ask? As often as possible. Heres what we do:
I get a lb or 2 of Ginger and juice it. If you don't have a juicer, you can chop it finely and add it to a blender with a couple tablespoons of water, blend HARD, then strain. I take this juice and pour it into ice cube trays then pop them out into a ziplock baggy.
Now, ginger chews are amazing for digestion and great before or after meals. But they are also great as cough drops! So when we notice a tickle or sign of cold, we make a tea with our ginger cubes and hot water FOUR times a day. YES 4. I would say at minimum 2. If we are actively sick, I add the ginger chews as cough drops.The Best Darn Ginger Chews
