I’m sick. Or more accurately, I’ve been on the verge of sick for the past week. Probably because of all the travel, the lack of sleep, and stress. That’s why I’ve been sucking down my favorite all-natural home remedy. I think it’s the only thing that’s kept me from crossing over into complete misery.

The Best Fresh Lemonade Recipe with lemon juice, honey, and water

So what is this magical Remedy?

Just 3 simple ingredients: fresh lemon, honey and water. That’s it. I know, I know, it doesn’t sound like much, but it’s a concoction I swear by. Honey is a natural immune system booster, and it’s loaded with anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial properties.

Lemons are anti-viral and have several substances like citric acid and bioflavonoids that also boost immunity and fight infection.

Using a large glass, I squeeze one inch of honey into the bottom. I then heat 1 lemon in the microwave for 30 seconds (it gets the juices flowing) and squeeze it into the glass over the honey. I then mix them with a spoon or stir stick, creating a thin syrup. Finally, I top it off with ice water (when I have a cold) or warm water (when I have a sore throat). The remedy is refreshing and nurturing at the same time, and definitely beats the NyQuil medicine-head hangover that keeps me from finishing (or in some instances, even starting) all my daily duties. I usually guzzle this down several times throughout my day, and it always does the trick!
