Healing Tea Remedy

CGK’s Healing Tea is a great remedy for any sore throat, persistent cough and/or bronchial infection. This Healing Tea can also be used for prevention. Here’s our best remedy the Curry family grew up with for healing our sore throats and colds! Everyone who knows Pegs, knew of her sore throat magical tea.

It all starts with lemons, and any variety will do. Friends would be so grateful to find a large jar waiting for them when Pegs heard they were feeling sick. Lemons are a great food source that also supports our immunity. Drink this tea for prevention too!

Another great sore throat tip~ Once your sore throat starts, immediately begin to suck on a quarter lemon every 15 minutes. Repeat this for 2 hours. The flavonoids in lemons have shown to have natural antibiotic effects, it literally will stop a sore throat from happening and can speed up a sore throat recovery time. Curious how this happens?

Love lemons? Prevention is key. Here is another great recipe for both!

Curry House Salad Dressing

Here is another great recipe that not only include lemons, but fresh garlic. Together they are a powerhouse for antiviral and antimicrobial prevention! Use this dressing over salads, as a marinade for fish, chicken or beef or drizzle over your favorite veggies!
