Make some fresh ginger tea! That’s the suggestion of registered dietician Brooke Alpert. Ginger has natural anti-inflammatory properties, because it contains compounds linked to relaxing blood vessels and preventing blood clots. And just one cup of ginger tea can help ward off headaches and muscle pain as effectively as some pain medications! For the best results, Alpert recommends boiling a 2-inch piece of ginger root in 2 cups of water for 10 minutes. Then, let the water cool, strain it into a mug, and sip away your pain.
