This Easy-to-make concoction of Nature’s Super Antibiotics destroys both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria and is also a potent anti-viral and anti-fungal/yeast formula. It greatly increases blood and lymph circulation to every part of the body. It is so effective that it is said to be the natural cure for colds and the flu, and is the herbal preparation of choice against Candida. This basic formula dates back to medieval Europe and the plagues.
Benefit of each Ingredient: (All Organic Of Course!!)
Garlic is one of nature’s best broad spectrum antibiotics. Unlike chemical antibiotics that also kill millions of friendly bacteria that your body actually needs, Garlic only targets the invading bacteria and even promotes and increases your healthy bacteria count. Garlic is also a powerful anti-fungal and literally destroys any antigen, pathogen and any harmful or disease causing micro-organism.
Onion is Garlic’s next of kin and has a similar but milder action. When used together, they are a tremendous bacteria fighting duo.
Horseradish is a potent herb for the sinus and lungs. It opens up the sinus passages and increases the circulation. Most doctors agree, the common cold and influenza often starts in the throat and sinus passages, and horseradish attacks these where they start.
Ginger is a powerful anti-inflammatory and is a tremendous circulatory stimulant.
Cayenne (Peppers) is the most powerful circulatory propellant known. It simply sends the antibiotic and disease fighting properties of the other herbs where they’re needed most.
Turmeric clears infection and reduces inflammation inside of the body. It blocks cancer from developing and is especially helpful for those with joint pain.
Apple Cider Vinegar (I use Braggs Organic ACV) The Father of Medicine, Hippocrates, used this vinegar around 400 B.C. for its health giving qualities. It is said that he used only two remedies for fighting colds and flu: honey and apple cider vinegar.
All About Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is made from fermenting fresh ripe apples. Once the fermentation process is complete, the finished product contains a multitude of vitamins, as well as beta-carotene, pectin and many other vital minerals such as potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous, chlorine, sulphur, iron, and fluorine.
Pectin which is prevalent in the vinegar is a fiber which helps to reduce bad cholesterol and regulate blood pressure. Apple cider vinegar helps extract calcium from the fruits, vegetables and meat it is mixed with, helping in the process of maintaining strong bones. Apple cider vinegar is also loaded with potassium. Potassium deficiency causes a variety of ailments including hair loss, weak finger nails, brittle teeth, sinusitis, and a permanently running nose. Studies have shown that potassium deficiency results in stunted growth. All these ailments can be avoided with the intake of apple cider vinegar. The potassium in this vinegar also helps in eliminating toxic waste from the body. The beta-carotene helps in countering damage caused by free radicals, helping one maintain firmer skin and a youthful appearance. Apple cider vinegar is good for those wanting to lose weight. It helps in breaking down fat which helps in natural weight reduction.
Apple cider vinegar also contains malic acid which is very powerful and can help in fighting fungal and bacterial infections. This acid dissolves uric acid deposits that form around joints, helping to relieve joint pains. This dissolved uric acid is gradually eliminated from the body. Apple cider vinegar is also helpful in relieving many ailments such as constipation, headaches, arthritis, weak bones, indigestion, high cholesterol, diarrhea, eczema, sore eyes, chronic fatigue, mild food poisoning, hair loss, high blood pressure, obesity. It is no wonder then many know apple cider vinegar as the “Wonder Drug”.
