Ginger has a multitude of healing properties, including: alleviating motion and morning sickness, aiding digestion, acting as a decongestant and also as a diuretic. (It also has a warming effect, so best avoided if you’re feeling hot or have high blood pressure.)
Cut thin slices of fresh ginger root. Add boiling water and a slice of lemon. Allow to infuse until it reaches the strength you like. Sip and savour!
