Does winter chill you to the bone? Warm yourself with ginger and cinnamon,
or make a Chai (instructions in packet available at Freedom Chinese Medicine)
Ginger and cinnamon are very warming. They can be added (in small portions) to slow cooked stews, soups and broths. According to Chinese medicine, fresh ginger brings the body’s heat to the
skin’s surface. It invigorates the immune system and helps us feel protected from the winter’s chill. Dried ginger produces a much stronger, more intense
heat. Cinnamon warms from within, and is especially helpful for people who suffer from pain in the lower back and cold arms and legs during winter.
