Home Remedy for Cold and Flu

This is a curative formula traditionally used in TCM as a specific remedy for curing colds, flu, and other bronchial ailments of the "cold type." (This phrase denotes those bronchial ailments accompanied by chills rather than fever. Since the tea is a warming yang formula, it should not be used for colds accompanied by fever.) It is also an effective therapy for "stomach colds" accompanied by diarrhea, for nausea and motion sickness, and for chronically cold hands and feet.


  • 6 to 8 thin slices fresh ginger with peel, about the size of a quarter, smashed lightly with the side of a knife

  • 6 to 8 scallions, white part only

  • 2 to 3 teaspoons raw sugar (such as Demerara), honey, or maple syrup, according to taste

  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  • 2 cups spring water


Add all in your vitaclay pot and set on stew to simmer on stew for 10 minutes.
