Basic Ginger Tea
1 inch ginger, cut into chunks or slices
1 cup water
2 tsp honey
Simmer ginger in water in a small saucepan for 5 minutes. Pour into a mug. Remove ginger pieces. Add honey and stir.
This is the perfect tea for any stomach ailment especially when nauseous.

This is how I make it, on a smaller scale. I hope it’s ok to repost this recipe on the web.
2-3 small beets
2-3 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp whey
Chop beets into large chunks and place in a 2 cup jar with a lid. Pour salt and whey over them. Fill the jar with water but leave space at the top. Leave on the counter for 2 days then place in fridge. I drink about 1/4 cup at a time of this, it’s a great liver tonic.
1/2 cup almonds (I use ones with skin on, blanched are fine too)
1 cup warm filtered water
2 cups cold filtered water
1-2 tbsp honey
1/4-1/2 tsp sea salt
Soak almonds in warm salted water overnight or about 8 hours. This makes them more digestible. I do this in a glass jar. Then drain the almonds.
Mix almonds and cold water in a blender or in a drink jug with an immersion blender. Pour everything into a nut milk bag. Squeeze the liquid back into the jug.
Add 1-2 tbsp of honey and 1/4-1/2 tsp sea salt. Stir well. Enjoy! Refrigerate any unused portion and it will keep a couple days.
Pretty simple, just need to get a nut milk bag. I’m not sure how I would make this without a nut milk bag. To clean the bag, rinse it under water to get rid of the nut bits and then it can go in the dishwasher. I get tired of washing that thing by hand.
1 spoonful of honey
1 cup warm water
Squeeze all the juice of the lemon into a glass. Add honey & warm water and stir until mixed. Add ice cubes if you like a cooler drink, but this is nice warm.
Carrot and celery juice
1-2 large carrot or about 1 cup
1-2 celery stalks
I find straining the juice through a fine mesh strainer works well. My juicer tends to leave some pulp, which isn’t so good on a sensitive digestive system.
If the juice seems too bitter, use more carrot and less greens.
