Is there anything better than a hot cup of chai on a chilly Winter’s day? This popular beverage from India traditionally incorporates black tea, aromatic spices, milk and honey, and is already a powerful digestive and immune tonic in its own right. However, add in some extra immune boosting herbs from the Chinese medicine pharmacopoeia and you have a recipe for a deliciously therapeutic superdrink!
Autumn is well and truly here, and the change of season has brought with it a characteristic influx of coughs, colds and flus. Whilst there are many different ways we can boost our immune system using Chinese medicine dietary approaches and herbal medicines, I wanted to write about a simple and delicious remedy that you can make yourself, incorporating both Chinese and Western herbs, for the prevention mild infections. Read on for my TCM inspired Elderberry syrup recipe, and I hope you’ll be inspired to make a batch or two for yourself!
