Anti-Viral Island Tea

Way Of Life Health Shop

I came across this recipe today and thought it was worth sharing. Each ingredient offers unique immunity supporting benefits. A variety of studies indicate that curcumin, a substance found in turmeric root, improves the health and adaptability of immune cells. Ginger strengthens digestive health (the health of the gut is closely linked to the immune system).
Honey can function as an effective all-natural cough suppressant, and citrus fruits like lemons, limes, and oranges, can improve immune function.
Large chunk fresh ginger, peeled and chopped (7- 8 cms)
Large chunk fresh turmeric, peeled and chopped (7- 8 cms)
About 6 cups of water
2 teaspoons raw honey
Juice of 2 lemons
Step 1: Bring water, ginger and turmeric to boil over medium-high heat in a large saucepan, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Step 2: Stir in honey and lemon juice. Strain tea and drink. Can be serve with additional honey and lemon wedges if desired.

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.
