Tonic Time Again

Every year the season changes and your body must adapt to the new environmental stresses of fall and winter.  The major media channels along with orthodox medicine will be bombarding us with propaganda about taking flu shots to keep from getting this year’s designer bug.  Besides the facts that these concoctions are based on pure guess work as to which virus will be making the rounds this year, there has been some recent research that shows avoiding the annual bug may not be a good thing.

You see the immune system is much more complex than we ever knew.  Now we know that there are two parts to the immune system.  The short term reactionary side, you experience when you get a cold or flu, and the long term low grade inflammation seen in allergies, asthma, and rheumatoid arthritis.  It turns out avoiding short term effects of colds and flu seem to increase the likelihood that you will develop long term allergies instead.  So a better option is to power up your immune system so that it can handle the seasonal bugs.  The following recipe is a sure fire way to give your natural immune system a boost and adapt to the seasonal viruses with very few symptoms.  If you have made this before, you know how potent this stuff is.  One last note, as you will see the tonic needs vodka to extract all the essence from herbs.  If you don’t like alcohol, after it has set for 14 days, simple heat the tonic up till it starts boiling.  This will completely eliminate the alcohol from the finished tonic.

 

1 bulb garlic

1 large white onion

1 hand size chunk of fresh ginger

4 ounces of fresh Horse radish

6 fresh hot peppers

1 quart apple cider vinegar (or your favorite fancy vinegar)

1 quart 80 proof vodka

Separate the bulb of garlic (not just a clove), chop the onion, ginger root, hot peppers (the hotter the better), and fresh horseradish root into 1/2” parts and toss them into your blender of food processor.  You want to keep the pulp in the mixture.  Cover with a quart of 80 proof vodka and blend until there are no large chunks, approximately 2-3 minutes.  Then pour into a large glass container with a sealable lid.  Let this mixture stand for 14 days shaking every day.  Then strain off the majority of the pulp and add a quart of vinegar, more or less to taste.  Take one teaspoon twice a day to prevent illness or every hour if you are already sick.  This tonic will boost your immune system, improve digestion, clear your arteries and your lungs and open your sinuses all with no side effects!

  1. This is a great read, allow me to add… What you tell yourself plays a big role in controlling your symptoms when you
    are having a panic attack. Panic attacks stem from
    the brain and when you tell yourself that there is nothing wrong with you, that it is all in
    your mind, your body will learn how to relax.

  2. This is great! Allow me to add… Get a cover for your iPad and put it to use immediately.

    This will protect the exterior of your device from damage
    like scratches and could even save your device from destruction if it
    were to fall. A cover can be expensive, but buying a new iPad will surely cost you a good deal more.

  3. So you will have to put extra air stones for
    this reason. Drop some pieces into the aquarium and give the clownfish time to eat the food before offering more.
    I set the timer to go 5 min 2 times a day and my salinity stays at 1.

  5. If you look around, you will be able to find different types of products, which are completely made by using organic products.
    But Ken, do organic products give you equal or
    better results. However, it doesn’t just stop there because Argan oil contains more than just these powerful antioxidants.

  6. I am curious which blogging platform you are running?
    I’m new to operating a blog and have been thinking about using the Blogger platform. Do you consider this is a good platform to start with? I would be really thankful if I could ask you some questions through email so I can learn a bit more prior to getting started. When you have some free time, please make sure to contact me at: rayford-purvis@googlemail.com. Thanks a lot

  7. Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you
    download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a
    few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump out.
    Please let me know where you got your design. Cheers

  9. Browsing delicious.com I noticed your site bookmarked as: Tonic
    Time Again | Harmony Health and Wellness. I’m assuming you bookmarked it yourself and wanted to ask if social bookmarking gets you a good deal of targeted visitors? I’ve
    been considering doing some bookmarking for a few of my websites but wasn’t sure if it would generate any positive results. Appreciate it.
