Wellness Shot to Fight Colds and Flus

Wellness shots are expensive from the health food store. I tend to get them when I’m feeling like I’m getting sick, or I’m already sick and need an immunity boost. But at $5 or $6 a shot, I can certainly say that making my own is very cost efficient even with the price of ginger.

Learned a lesson really quick:

1. Do not drink straight juiced ginger – it hurts, it burns, it made my esophagus feel on fire for hours.

2. A little bit of ginger root goes a long way. So you only need a few thumb size pieces and it makes quite a few shots.

Wellness Shot


1 tbsp fresh juiced ginger

1 tbsp lemon juice

2 oz warm water

Mix and drink.

That mix is delicious, strong, and I can feel it kick in right away. Germs and viruses beware! Try this little remedy a few times a day when you’re feeling a cold come on and see how you feel after!
