You got the sniffles or upset belly, don't reach for a glass of orange juice or that fizzy stuff. That is good, but try pineapple juice instead. It has vitamin C like its orange cousin, but it also has bromelain. Studies have found it is effective in treating upper respiratory conditions and acute sinusitis. The next time you get a cold, make this recipe!contain little or no fat or cholesterol, and provide significant amounts of fiber, digestive enzymes, vitamin C, calcium, and potassium.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine 8 ounces of pineapple juice, 2 teaspoons of honey and ginger heat over low flame till warm.

My daughter has been sick for a while and this recipe caught my eye. I love when a homemade recipe can have such practical results. She loved the flavor and also enjoyed the warmth. It felt good on her throat. She also has chronic digestive issues, and I know that ginger can help soothe that too. Thanks for posting!

This is very effective. I did not have pineapple juice on hand and I'm not drinking any processed juices, just the natural ones, but its not easy to get them all the time, so I tried this with just honey and ginger. It worked miraculously and I got well with this treatment. I took it twice. Ofcourse, with rest and lots of water also. After taking this, it is recommended not to drink water for atleast 45 minutes. I followed this as well. A SUPER GOOD treatment this is.

This was welcome relief for the lingering cough I've had for weeks now. And it was so pleasant tasting, too. The ginger and honey together was particularly good. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Rita.
