Make Yourself an Incredible Antibiotic with Antiviral, Anti-parasitic, Anti-fungal and Lots of Other Health Benefits.
This tonic will help you regulate the acid / alkaline balance, but will also help the digestive tract — if the vinegar is organic and unfiltered, it will contain symbiotic colony of friendly bacteria and fungi, which makes it an excellent pro biotic.
The supertonic is spread over the Internet under the name Master Tonic — it is difficult to attribute credit for this tonic because a lot of herbalists have been using it for centuries.
Either way, the recipe is fantastic. Remember to use organic ingredients or better, grow your own — you will drink them because of their medicinal properties, which means that you need to have the best and the healthiest quality.
- Fresh Habanero peppers (or find the hottest pepper that you can),
- one head of garlic,
- white onion,
- ginger root,
- horse radish root and
- unrefined apple cider vinegar.
The tonic is prepared as any other tincture: Fill a glass with herbs, cover the plants and then add another two or three inches of liquid, in this case vinegar. Then leave the tonic in a dark place for at least two to six weeks, the longer it stands, the stronger it will be.
You will need a large glass jar so you can make a large amount that is going to last.
Then, peel and chop the vegetables. Some people put whole vegetables, while others grate or process them.
You will have to choose the size of the slices, but maybe it is better to slice than to mince them because it makes the process of straining a little easier, and you can make the most out of the pieces later in for soups.
* Remember, You work with peppers and onions, and if you have never cut them before, you should know that they are powerful enough to make you cry. Many recommend wearing gloves. If you have any small cuts on the hands you will become very aware of them. To remove the odor and the burning sensation, wash your hands with warm water and soap and then with fresh squeezed lemon juice. Do not touch your eyes with the hands for at least an hour.
Put all of the ingredients in a large jar and cover it completely with apple vinegar, so that the vinegar swims three fingers above the herbs and vegetables. (Excess vinegar is placed due to the expansion of vegetables).
Place the lid firmly on the tonic, and by holding the lid in place, shake the tonic so that it is mixed.
Add more vinegar, if necessary. You can leave this remedy to rest for a few weeks, and it is good if you shake it every day.
Furthermore, strain the tincture for better storage and easier usage. You will need loose fabric, something like gauze, muslin, or some wipes, a large bowl and a strainer made from stainless steel that fits into the bowl.
If you do not have these tools, you can put a cloth over the opening jars and pour until the liquid comes out, but in this way you will lose a lot.
Place the strainer in the bowl and cover it with gauze. Pour the contents of the jar into the strainer. Take a level object, something like a plate and press the mixture in order to get all of the remaining juices out.
You can pour the tonic into some small jars or you can wash one large glass jar and keep it in there. Darkened bottles, as well as amber glass, are recommended for storage of tinctures, as they reduce the damage from light.
Store the tincture in a dark and cool place. The remains of the compost can be frozen or added to soups and other dishes.
After the tonic is ready, you can start drinking it daily or as needed to support digestion, immunity and other diseases. Remember, you are drinking very powerful herbs and spices, so you know what to expect from the taste.
I add a little bit of unrefined honey, so I can consume it better, but most of the people consume it like that. Make sure you drink plenty of water during the day.
