THE FLU BUSTER JUICE
I will always remember January as the month when I couldn't get out of bed for over a week straight. That dang flu bug took me down that year and I fell hard. I honestly haven't been that sick in over two years!
Since I try to rely on natural remedies as opposed to drug store versions, I tried practically every home remedy I could get my hands on. The winners included gargling with salt water (to ease a sore throat), a hot bath with eucalyptus oil (to clear out the sinuses) and this Flu Buster Juice (to ease general symptoms/immune support).
Depending on the desired intensity, you can adjust the ratio of garlic and ginger. And if you can't handle the thought of downing this without a little sweetness, an orange will lighten this combo up and add a Vitamin C boost!
