My journey of health, wellness & balance through diet, detox, remedies, and prayer
Fire cider, or Master Tonic, is a time tested remedy, used traditionally as an anti-microbial, decongestant, and circulatory herbs and spices.
A very potent antibiotic.
It can be taken daily to support the immune system, stimulate digestion, and warm you up on cold days so it make a great winter immune booster. Use daily, just gargle and swallow 1 TBSP of fire cider every day with a meal. It works best undiluted, but the first couple of times using, you may want to have a glass of filtered water available to chase it with.
It can be taken for combating a cold or infection by using 1 TBSP of the tonic 5-6 times a day.
Other ways that I have used Fire Cider is added to my vegetable juice, added to food in recipes especially good on quinoa dishes, or I have used as dressing on my salads with a little olive oil.
Once fermented, I strain and sautée some of the strained pulp with shredded carrots, cabbage, broccoli, and fresh herb stir-fry and add to spring rolls.
The main ingredients:
Add diced ingredients together in a large mason jar and cover with apple cider vinegar and place in a cool dark place for about a month but can be used after about a week or less if needed.
I have mine in the fridge now and still have used it after sitting for a year. I did not strain my batch completely and I add vinegar to it when low on liquid.
CAUTION: The end result is potent and hot, I NEVER use on an empty stomach, and I start with a teaspoon for the first few times.
It is considered by this Author to be safe for pregnant women and children, in small doses as it can be quite strong, as ingredients are all-natural and contain no toxins.
Along my journey, I learned of Essiac Tea, this blend of 4 different herbs are believed to fight cancer, improve immunity, increase detoxification and decrease inflammation. I felt led to try it and took about 8-12 cups of this amazing tea. I bought mine locally as a dry herb combo, but you could purchase these individually and combine and steep. I will find my recipe and recommended dose and update it asap (please reach out to me if you get to it before I get to this and I will locate it for you quicker)
