This vinegar tonic is an excellent illustration of the intersection of nutrition and herbal medicine. It is a concoction of powerful anti-oxidants, immune boosters, blood tonics and infection suppressants.
All the ingredients are cooking ingredients. We have some of our information on the efficacy of these ingredients from the herbalism series we are watching called “REMEDY”. Unfortunately by the time you see this the free access to the series would have expired but it is still for sale at an amazingly low cost considering the benefits, and comparing it to a few trips to the doctor and coming away without healing. We also do google searches on the ingredients so I cannot guarantee all of this information.
I can only report that when we take a tablespoon or two regularly, colds and flu seem to occur less often. It does seem to protect us. The effects of these herbal medicines in the recipe are mild, and so long term consumption of the vinegar tonic in small quantities is what strengthens the body and supports immune and other functions. There is not space to discuss the most important medicinally active ingredients in the spices now, but we will be delving into all of this with time. We have been taking the turmeric tonic for a few years and my husband swears by it. It makes the eyes water so be careful not to choke the first time you take a spoonful. In the long run its not unpleasant.
A word of caution on spice powders, a child choked to death on dry cinnamon powder. Don't take spoonfuls of dry spice powders, they make you gasp and once in your lungs they block them and can cause asphyxiation.
Thereafter take one to 3 tablespoons of the liquid once or more times per day.
