Try it the next time you or someone in your family is sick. 2 cups water 5 whole black pepper pods 4 cloves 2-3 1 inch cinnamon sticks 2 inches ginger. Put everything together in a pot and boil for about 20 minutes at which point the water would have turned black or dark brown and the water quantity has reduced to half the amount.
This was our miracle cure last night! Alex didn't cough once after I have it to him. He has coughed once this morning. He told me "I am NOT doing that again", but after last night's results he will if I have to pour it down myself!

Exposed to the stomach flu? Give this a try. Drinking no sugar added grape juice supposedly changes the PH in your digestive system preventing the virus from multiplying. My husband and I tried it after our 2 yr old started throwing up and we did not get sick.
Sore throat help! Especially helpful for children...but NOT under 1 year old. Lemon dries up congestions and honey provides a soothing coating. Mix together a tablespoon of each, microwave for 20 seconds until warm (not hot). Works!
