To make

Add slices of lemon and cucumber to a pitcher of water, along with fresh mint and slices of ginger root if you'd like. Let sit in the fridge overnight to infuse, then drink the water throughout the following day.

Notes

Add variations such as other herbs (parsley or basil) or other fruits (berries, oranges, limes) to pack a nice anti-inflammatory punch.
