When I get sick to my stomach, ginger is my go-to cure. Many people opt to eat ginger or drink a ginger ale, and I can absolutely attest to its abilities when it comes to settling the stomach and helping with digestion. Ginger has been used for thousands of years in China to treat nausea, arthritis, and heart disease. Instead of reaching for an unhealthy soda, let’s get into how we make our own “ginger ale” for nausea and pain.
You will need:
- 1 cup of peeled, finely chopped organic ginger
- 2 cups of purified water
- 1 cup of raw organic honey
- Sparkling water
- 1 organic lime, juiced
- Boil 2 cups of water
- Add the ginger
- Reduce the heat to a medium-low setting, let simmer for 5 minutes
- Take it off the heat and strain
When serving, use 1 part of the ginger syrup to 3 parts water. Serve it over ice and enjoy!
Pretty simple, right? We hope you get to feeling better soon!
