How To Ease Your Body Into Fall

Have a Healing Drink


If the shifting seasons have already landed you a cold, make a soothing pot of ginger cinnamon tea.  Know to have genuine healing powers, cinnamon helps relieve headaches and can stabilize blood sugar, while ginger soothes upset stomachs and has anti-inflammatory properties.

Rather than buying a box of tea bags, you can make a much more effective brew at home by putting together a few common ingredients.  Simply put 3 – 4 quarter-sized slices of ginger into a teapot of boiling water.  Add a cinnamon stick, lemon and some brown sugar to taste, let it steep for about five mines, and strain into a cup.  Enjoy two cups a day, and your symptoms should begin to ease within a matter of days.
