I started getting into garlic and ginger as an immune booster and other medicinal purposes a few years ago and I truly believe it helps fight off sickness!

I know people who even eat raw garlic when they are starting to feel sick - which I would definitely recommend if you can handle it - and by "eat raw garlic" I mean chew on garlic for a while and then swallow it. This is really rough so instead I make garlic tea!

I boil water as if you are making a pot of tea - and instead of putting tea bags in it - I put raw crushed garlic and chopped up ginger root! 

For 1 cup - add at least 3 cloves of garlic - and at least a tablespoon of the ginger root (just peel and chop into chunks). 

I say "at least" because you can put as much as you want - it depends on how much of the taste you can handle since both garlic and ginger are both a strong taste!

Once the water is boiled - turn off the flame - add the ginger and garlic - and let it steep!

You can leave the Garlic and Ginger chunks in there since they should be big enough that you won't swallow them. Sometimes you can keep them for your next cup of tea!

Other tasty ingredients to help with the taste (I don't always do this because I grew to love the taste of the ginger garlic tea) - Raw honey and Lemon!

My home remedies to fight off any sickness don't end here! Stay tuned for more of my concoctions that I swear by!
