Tis the season, I mean the cold and flu season! Once the weather changes, it seems the colds start. Is it a rite of passage for the fall to begin? When I feel under the weather (maybe that cliche means, I was under summer weather and not rate, I prefer a holistic approach to colds. I know that doctors have their place and are a warranted, talented, hard working individuals; however, I go when all else fails.
I was beginning to feel the remnants of a cold. I began drinking herbal tea with my concoction of honey, lemon, ginger, garlic or any combination thereof. On the next day, I felt the virus, bug, cold was escalating and I was going down fast. I had to do something. Well, I came across a tonic some time ago and vowed that I would try it, if needed. That time had come and decided to try my hand at this tonic. The recipe made 2 gallons. Well, unless I’m curing elephants, I don’t need quite that much. I opted for a 16 oz bottle. The ingredients include five equal parts of: garlic, white onions, pepper (any kind), horseradish root, ginger root. I placed my 1/4 cup of the above and added to a 16oz apple cider vinegar. My instructions said to wait 10-14 days before consuming. I didn’t have the time, as I was sick at the time I made it and shot a you tube video!
Was it terrible? Of course, it was, awful to be exact, but it worked. I slept for 9 hours which is quite unusual for me and I felt 90% better and I was on my way to recovery. Whew, I discovered another use for apple cider vinegar.
Try it and let me know how it works for you!
