Ginger & Cinnamon Tea Recipe – Good for Bronchitis, Flu, Chest Infection, Colds

When I was feeling like I was 80 with emphysema this week, I looked for holistic remedies that could help my lungs feel better.  I found a website mentioning the combination of cinnamon and ginger being really good for getting rid of mucus.  It’s also a warming combination to enjoy in the winter, or to help with colds/flus.  So my husband came up with this concoction and made me this tea:

  • ½ tsp fresh ginger (diced into small pieces)
  • A dash of cinnamon
  • 1 & ¼ C hot water
  • 1/2 tsp honey

Let the tea brew for 5 minutes and drink.  This is the quick fix version.  It’s delicious and helped my sinuses feel good.

Another variation I tried the next day was simmering 1 tsp fresh ginger (diced), 1 cinnamon stick, and 2 C of water over the stovetop for 1 hr.  Then I added 1/2 tsp honey and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice at the end.  The aroma and spicy taste was delicious.  Try it as a non-caffeinated way to start out your day!  And recommend it to your clients/patients when they get sinus-related colds or the flu!
