Flu Season Ginger Lemon Drink

This yogic remedy, when mixed together and taken first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, is said to really wake you up and help you stay healthy during the cold and flu season. (You may wish to dilute it with filtered water.)

2 oz. ginger juice (best is ginger juice made from a food juicer, but you can also shred the ginger in a food processor and then squeeze the juice out of the ginger)

2 oz. lemon juice

1 oz. flaxseed, sesame, or olive oil (According to yogic wisdom, flaxseed oil and sesame oil are good for the heart, and olive oil is good for the brain)
