The Master Tonic

The Master Tonic

Also known as Fire Tonic or Fire cider this anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitical remedy has been around for ages and rightfully so if you listen to old folklore. It’s the beginning of cold and flu season and that means having this tonic stocked and ready to go, it keeps forever and doesn’t have the side effects of Tamiflu…This tonic isn’t to be underestimated, with it’s fresh ingredients it has been said to cure most chronic conditions and many stubborn illnesses, when you hear of the flu bugs around seemingly worse every year this is something you may want to have on hand. Some have called this a modern day plague remedy, now I don’t know about that title but I do know it kicks butt when it comes to colds, flu’s and various other illnesses. If you listen to the folklore you will want to prepare this and bottle it on the new moon then it will be ready on the full moon. This would be 14 days although I sometimes like to leave it for 4 weeks. So how do you make this amazing tonic? Start with fresh organic ingredients. 1 part fresh chopped garlic 1 part fresh chopped white onion 1 part fresh grated ginger 1 part fresh grated horseradish root 1 part fresh chopped jalapeno, cayenne, habaneros or any other of the hottest peppers that are fresh, seasonally available and organic. (you will want to wear gloves for this part) Raw (unpasteurized), unfiltered, apple cider vinegar – ACV (with mother) I prefer to use Braggs. Remember to use only fresh organic ingredients for the potency....
Take that shake and shove it.

Whats my take on protein powders? Leave’ em! Yes that includes all the mlm versions of so called super powders with all the benefits they supposedly have, let me tell you right now, they don’t. The synthetic vitamins that have been added to make it seem they are healthy is just another marketing ploy, your body doesn’t know what to do with that garbage anymore than it does your synthetic multi vitamin (but thats a whole other article). If you choose to have a shake instead of a candy bar then great! But perhaps all it takes is a little planning ahead in order to get what you need. I’m approached almost daily by people who truly have the best of intentions, unfortunately the load of crap they are being fed by these companies is just that… a load of crap. I am just as guilty as I used to tout the health benefits of one of the popular brands circulating the gym scene today, I now refer to it and others like it as A CHEMICAL SHITSTORM. Yes you heard me correct. Protein powders have this one major issues, they are (in most cases) highly processed and we all know my stance on processed food. yick. These protein powders are processed, heated to the point that the protein is denatured (this means it is no longer in it’s natural form) which ultimately means our bodies have no clue what to do with it. If a substance is no longer recognized by our bodies as “food” what happens to it? what does our body do with it? better yet, what...
