I really love this recipe from the Medical Medium book Life-Changing Foods because it not only tastes great but has amazing healing benefits.
Ginger helps alleviate fatigue, muscle spasms and cramps, muscle tightness and pain, nausea, stomach cramps, and even back pain. Ginger has antispasmodic properties from over 60 minerals, amino acids, enzymes and co-enzymes that work together to calm muscles and help you deal with over reactivity to the stress of everyday life.
If you suddenly find yourself in crisis mode then make some ginger tea, or drink some ginger aid to help give you some respite.

Ingredients
  

  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 1 piece ginger 8-10 cm
  • 10 limes
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves
  • 3 cups filtered water

Preparation

Ginger
  • Cut off a large 8-10cm thick piece
  • Cut into thin slices leaving the skin on
Mint
  • Pull off the leaves from the woody stem
  • Juice leaves in handfuls
Lime
  • Thinly slice off the outer skin
  • Juice whole

EQUIPMENT

Instructions
 

  • You need to make honey water on the stove first by adding the honey to 1 cup of water and warm until the honey dissolves. Don’t overheat to preserve the nutrition in the honey. Once dissolved remove and let cool.
  • Juice the ginger slices a few at a time.
  • Next juice half the limes one by one. When done add 1/2 the mint leaves into the juicer followed by the rest of the limes one by one.
  • When you have finished juicing all the limes run 3 cups of filtered water through the juicer to flush.
  • Add the juice with the flushed water to the cooled honey water and then add the rest of the mint leaves.
  • Place into the fridge to chill.

Tip:

  • You can drink this ginger juice every day at any time of the day. You can also drink two or three times a day as required

Liquid Nutrition

There is more to every fruit, vegetable and leafy green than taste and flavour. Each one has a unique signature or a "sign from nature" indicating what part of the human body its nutrition targets. The light or the colour of fruits and vegetables can help us heal emotionally (think colour therapy) and the lessons the fruits, vegetables and leafy greens learn when growing get passed onto us, to help us, when we consume them.
