Have you recently taken an antibiotic and are looking to heal your gut? Drink ginger tea. Ginger has a soothing effect on the digestive system and can help to reduce gas and bloating associated with taking an antibiotic. For best results, follow my recipe below. For my ten tips on how to heal your gut after taking an antibiotic, check out my book, The Microbiome Solution(Penguin 2015).

SERVINGS: 2

Ingredients

1-inch piece of fresh ginger root, peeled

2 cups water

Method

Cut the fresh ginger root into small pieces and place in a teapot or thermal carafe (a small cooking pot will also work). Then add two cups of boiling water and let steep for twenty to thirty minutes. Strain and serve.

NOTE: For a sweetener and added flavor, you can add a lemon wedge and 1 teaspoon of Manuka honey.
