My Lemon Spiced Mornings – Post Sepsis Recovery

Every morning since I had Sepsis I’ve been making myself and my family one of these – My Lemon Spiced Mornings – Post Sepsis Recovery!

I am always looking for natural ways to heal myself, especially after the onslaught of dealing with pneumonia and sepsis plus all the chemicals that were pumped into my body. In the early days post sepsis my mouth was bone dry, my taste non existent and I freaked out ALL the time about wether my infection and inflammation levels were getting any better.

My family and I often already took my lemon spiced shots but I quickly stepped them up again. They are really quick to make, taste great and are a warming way to start the day.

Of course this is just my opinion of what works for me and my family – its not medical advice and any change in your diet should be discussed with your doctors. But for me, this is my lemon spiced morning ritual!

In a small glass fill with about a tablespoon of honey – local organic honey is best but we’ll forgive you if you don’t have any!!

Squeeze in the juice of a quarter to half a real lemon and add a dash of hot (not boiling) water. Spice things up with about a pinch to 1/4 teaspoon each of ginger, turmeric and cinnamon powder.

Mix it all together & knock it back or sip it.

We also use this as a cough mixture or if you have a sore throat coming on. I would make a small glass up for the kids and give them a spoon so they can take a spoonful throughout the day when they are coughing.

You can give it an extra kick by adding in a pinch of cayenne pepper but be careful if you have a sensitive stomach – my stomach can’t handle this and the kids don’t like it but my husband adds it to his every day.

We have one of these EVERY morning and increase it to a couple of times a day if we feel any sort of cough or cold coming on!!

This is a great all round tonic. I think of it like a vitamin shot with its anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties!
