I am intrigued by The Clean Program, recently recommended to me by a good friend. It appears to be a healthy way to reset and your body, both emotionally and physically. Clean seems to be a good place to start. I love smoothies and creating my own "folk remedies" combining fresh ingredients.
Ginger is a common folk remedy for colds. According to Wikipedia, it has also been historically used to treat inflammation, and is used as a throat lozenge in traditional medicine to relieve sore throat. It is often used to prevent motion and morning sickness. It is recognized as safe by the Food and Drug Administration and is sold as an unregulated dietary supplement.
