- 6 or 7 pieces ginger
- A teaspoon of honey (has antiseptic properties)
- A teaspoon of black peppercorns (fights infection)
- 2 cups of water
Heat the water in a pan, and when it starts to simmer, add the ginger and peppercorns. Cover the pan, leave it to boil for a minute, and then lower the heat. Simmer for 5 to 7 minutes until it turns pale yellow. Strain and add a tablespoon of honey. You should drink this tea 2-3 times daily by sipping to instantly soothe the congestion.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar alkalizes the body and maintains a healthy pH balance in the body, which will prevent excess production of mucus in the body.
You can add a tablespoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar to a glass of water and mix well. Then, drink it 2-3 times daily to eliminate phlegm or gargle to soothe a sore throat.
