When experiencing congestion I find it helpful to make a pot of tea with fresh ginger and lemon. Simply thinly slice fresh ginger and add some fresh squeezed lemon. Proportions can be; 5 thin thumbnail size slices of ginger with a teaspoon to tablespoon of fresh lemon juice. Steep in 2 cups of hot water. Usually I keep it simple and slice the ginger right into my cup leaving it in there for the next cup, adding the lemon with each full cup, keeping in mind I don’t want to leave the ginger sit too long between cups. It is good to get a few cups of this into yourself to help break up the congestion. Sweeten if you choose with stevia or honey.
