This Month's Home Remedy:
Japanese Ginger Tea - shoga-yu

In traditional Japanese medicine, known as kampo fresh ginger and dried ginger are used as two distinct and different herbal remedies. Both the Japanese and Chinese system (TCM) of medicine suggest the use of fresh ginger for the treatment of fevers, to treat headaches, and to alleviate the pain and discomfort of aching muscles in the body. Dried ginger powder is used for the treatment of internal colds, and for physical symptoms such as cold and clammy hands, a weakening of the pulse rate, and a pale or white complexion.

Ginger tea is caffaine-free it can be drank several times a day but has a slight stimulant effect. Japanese Dried Ginger contains a dozen anti-viral compounds and is instant and delicious!

To make a cup of Instant Ginger Tea - shoga-yu:

Mix 1/2 teaspoon Mitoku Ginger Root Powder with 1 cup of boiled spring water with
1/2 teaspoon Mitoku Brown Rice Malt

Stir well until malt is completely melted. Cool for 2-3 minutes, then drink while warm. The malt is very helpful in soothing a scratchy sore throat and will ease coughing and sneezing.
Sip the tea slowly and avoid gulping it down. Swish it around the mouth before swallowing. This will help the liquid to mix with the enzymes in the saliva and rapidly assimilate into the blood stream, promoting circulation throughout the entire body. This brew is an incredibly warming tea to aid in breaking-up excess mucus and suppressing springtime allergies.
