Update: Stress has totally taken it's toll on my tummy lately. Rita to the rescue! This works so wonderfully. Feels like a warm hug from a dear friend! Thanks Rita! Original: 3/08 Really works well and fast! DD woke with a bug and I forced this down her as fast as I could. Really helped her with the stomach flu! Thanks Rita- from one Mama to another! Hugs!
I'm surprised how good it was with all this ginger since it's so strong. I mixed a little with some orange juice (only 1/4 cup). I've been sick now for most of this month and I'm hoping this will help me to overcome all my ailments. Thanks for this recipe.
A wonderful tea... I have been feeling realllllly blech! today (stomach flu???) and came across this recipe. OMG, this is a life saver! I did add a bit more honey and definitely included the ginger- due to it's awesome healing properties. This "tea" was really soothing and calming for my angry tummy. Thanks so much for sharing, Rita! I am about to make another cup before bed!
Not only is this good for stomach relief but it's great in the morning when I wake up with a scratchy throat.
My mum used to make us this a lot as kids. Not just for stomach aches but with extra honey when we had sore throats or colds. It works a treat.
I had a slight tummy ache last night, and decided to give this a try. I added some ground ginger, cause I know ginger helps settle the tummy. This was very comforting, and before I went to bed, I was feeling a lot better. Thanks for posting.
This recipe was given to me by a about a 90 year old sweet black lady I met on a city bus about 25 yrs ago. She said it would help you get over a cold. I made it for my uncle that night, who was extremly ill. He was probably 60 to 70% better the next day. It is a winner!!!!!!!
DH had a very upset tummy last night. I made this using ground ginger, which worked out fine. When I make it again I will use fresh lemon slices instead of lemon juice. DH said this was very comforting and did just the trick. This might be a great recipe for pregnant women who suffer from morning sickness. Ginger has a very soothing quality.
I will rate these on ease of prepartion and effectiveness. Nothing to putting it together and it is soothing on the stomach. I highly recommend the addition of the grated ginger not only for taste but it increases the soothing benefits. Thanks Rita for posting. Often time the simple remedies are the best.
Quick, very spicy with the fresh ginger which I grated on the regular side of my box grater. I used extra honey as I am also fighting a sore throat. Good to use raw local honey though I used creamed pasteurized as it is what I had on hand. I would make this again for stomach aches with raw local honey insha Allah (God willing).
