Starting to feel a cold or flu coming on? If you have a juicer, juice 2 oz. of ginger and add 2 oz. of lemon juice (and 2 oz. of water to dilute it) and gulp it down fast. After the burn is gone, you'll start to feel much better!
No juicer? Slow boil a small handful of black peppercorns and 4 or 5 slices of ginger. After you strain it, sip on the tea while you take a hot bath with bath salts or Epsom salts. Be sure to finish the bath with a cold shower, wrap up in lots of blankets and go to sleep.
