There are three highly acclaimed Japanese home remedies, negi-miso-yu, shogayu, and tamagozake, and today we’ll give you the recipes, so keep reading and take note!
In Japan, traditional home remedies are an excellent option to treat symptoms such as coughs and congestion, because they are natural and very effective.
Cold remedies in Japan
The Japanese have shogayu, a combination of warm honey, ginger, and yuzu that helps to alleviate symptoms of the common cold.
Negi-miso-yu its a mixture of miso, chopped scallions, and hot water. Alliums, such as garlic and onions, have anti-inflammatory and expectorant properties.
Protein-rich miso stimulates digestion and provides ample amounts of vitamin B, vitamin K, vitamin E, and folic acid. The mechanism in which miso stimulates digestion results from its fermentation. Fermented foods introduce beneficial bacteria to the digestive tract, which help break down specific food components and facilitate nutrient uptake.
A classic Japanese ginger tea attacks symptoms of the common cold synergistically.
Ginger is a pungent, piquant spice, not unlike cardamom and galangal. Ginger has a way of opening the nasal passages and letting you breathe a little easier when you feel congested.
The honey in shogayu might act as a productive cough suppressant. Although yuzu or lemon is optional in shogayu, vitamin C in these citrus fruits might provide protection against immune system deficiencies, eye disease, and cardiovascular disease.
Consider tamagozake sake-based eggnog. Although too much alcohol might make cold symptoms worse, you’d be hard-pressed to deny the therapeutic effects of a warming cup of sweetened sake combined with an egg beaten until frothy when you feel a chill coming on. For a touch of piquancy, steep a slice of ginger in the purpose as you heat it.
The recipes given above are not intended to cure or prevent illness or disease. This can only be an aid to relieve some of the symptoms of the common cold. If you think you have an illness, it is best to consult your doctor. Do not self-diagnose.
