Some warm drinks are timeless and really help you stay healthy and stronger as the cooler weather sets in. Good old Lemon and honey clears our system faster than most other things and can be taken as a daily drink right through the cooler season. You can add herbs to this drink for extra health benefits.
Looking at what our vulnerabilities are and addressing them is the best approach for seasonal wellness.
For example do you tend to get sinus infections as the weather cools? Do you get a cough? sore throat? aches and pains in joints? Headaches? sluggishness? These are all signs of allergenic responses to the seasons changing and now as we head into the cooler months you can have some simple preventative plans in place with herbal teas at home.
No matter what your vulnerabilities are there are some timeless drinks that really help you stay well.
