    I've found it better than any of the handy pharma remedies. Ginger root tea w/ lemon and honey is good for phlegm. Tastes great too and can be kept in the fridge after for up to 3 days and keep topping it w/ water and fresh lemon. My old doctor actually gives out this recipe for colds. Works w/out the honey, which I skip myself.

    Hot tea with honey and lemon works best for me.

    I had a nun in high school who knew how to make "hot lemonade" with lemons, cloves, cinnamon and I don't know what else. I wish I had gotten the recipe from her before she passed, because the stuff was miraculous.

    You'd drink 1 cup and within a couple of hours you'd sweat any illness right out of your body.

    She had gotten the recipe from her mom at the turn of the century (she became a nun in 1917)!

    If anyone has this recipe, please, please share!
