Tips for the Day

With medical issues becoming more of a concern because Drs. aren't going to be able to help us as we get too old, I feel it is important we become self educated and be prepared to take care of ourselves. Therefore, I wanted to share this wonderful recipe for a cure for anything that ails us - in particular, colds, sore throats, breathing issues, etc.
You will need one very clean quart jar. In that quart jar place equal parts of garlic cloves, chopped; hot white onion, chopped; fresh ginger, chopped;, horseradish root cut into small chunks; very hot peppers, including seeds. Fill the quart jar to 2/3 line with Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar. This should cover all of the chunky stuff. Close jar with plastic lid (metal would not be a good idea). Put in a dark place for the next two weeks. At the end of the two weeks, strain, throw away the chunky stuff and keep the liquid. When you are feeling ill, gargle with 2 tablespoons of this wonderful elixir and then swallow quickly.

And since tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day, this is an important tip. "According to legend, peas and sweet peas planted on St. Patrick's Day will grow abundantly and healthily." (Quoted from Planting by the Moon, a Rodale publication.)

Aren't you glad you checked the blog today?

How did I miss this wisdom packed post? In reviewing the ingredients, I have concluded that the concoction must be rather HOT. Just one more remedy to burn the ailment out of the same category as mustard plasters.
