Tension Anyone?

Today I tried a new remedy for a tension headache. I’ve used it before for colds but I’ve never thought of it just for headaches. 

I’m happy to report that along with being simple and taking a mere 2-3 minutes to make, it actually makes a big difference!

Here’s the magic:

Ginger Lemon Tea 
1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
{or you could use grated fresh ginger instead}
1-2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
{I juice lemons, when I have them fresh, and freeze the juice in ice-cube trays; then put the cubes in a Ziploc freezer bag. You can make the cubes 1 Tablespoon or 2.}
1 teaspoon honey

Melt and stir in one cup of hot water. Let it sit for few minutes while it cools. {Hot isn’t great for your stomach.}

Does it get any easier than that?

It was so refreshing and light and thankfully, took care of the pain.

I hope that you are having a wonderful week my friend!

Be well.


P.S. Along with any physical intervention, remedy or medicine, remember to add  “I am” declarations for a quicker recovery time.

“I am well.”

“I let go of pain.”

“I love my life.”

“I continue to learn.”

“I am flexible.”

“I learn from all of my experiences.”

P.S.S. These kinds of approaches, such as simple herbal teas and creating mental shifts, can often alleviate the need for drugs. When my step-father nearly died from an ulcer last year, they told him at the hospital that it had been caused by taking too much ibuprofen. So we have to remember to take it easy on quick fixes, make changes as we can to alleviate stress and work through our problems; get more rest; stay hydrated and do the brain training we need to do on a daily basis. Then as you need help, you can try simple, no-side-effect ideas first, and often they, along with your other healthy habits, will do the trick.
