Cure for the Common Cold

Hi AFF, (Awesome Fit Fam)

I’m sure you’ve heard of all those natural cold remedies available, echinacea, ginseng, vitamin C. I had previously tried all of them…but this week I got a cold and my very sweet best friend brought over ginger and lemon juice.

What she did was blended the ginger with a little bit of water and mixed with lemon juice. It was AMAZING how quickly I felt better. Seriously, within the hour the crummy feeling of the cold was disappearing. I took this little concoction throughout the day, every 3 hours. Although the next day I felt a lot better I continued to take it.

She had told me about it before but I seriously never get sick so I never really paid much attention. Anyway, I wanted to recommend it to you, just in case you need it, see the exact instructions below.

Ginger/Lemon cold cure!!

Lemon-Ginger119942036about 1 inch of natural ginger
blend with 1/2 cup water
once it’s well blended
transfer 4 Tblsp into a glass and
squeeze half a lemon
heat for about 20 sec. in the microwave!!

Drink, quickly…doesn’t taste great but it’s bearable!

Drink it throughout the day, you won’t need Tylenol or Advil!

Below is a message from our Camp Support Group Leader, Andrea!

Join us for our Camp Support Group!! We had a great group for our first session. We shared stories, experiences, frustrations and some laughs. Most of all we related to each other and didn’t feel so
alone in our journey towards letting go of negative habits and adopting a healthy lifestyle!!

Some of the topics of our last group were: a little about ourselves and what brought us to The Camp, some of the obstacles we face in our day to day lives that make our health goals challenging, people in our lives that are non-supportive and what we are looking forward to when we reach our goal-

Our next support group will focus on tools for achieving your goals: through self care, saying no to others and using affirmations.

I look forward to connecting and sharing time with you on our journey towards greater health and quality of life!

Please feel free to email me if you have any questions. Andrea Torres
