The Wonderful Cold & Flu Remedy & The Magic of Garlic

Jul 16, 2008
I want to share this amazing elixir with all of you. It has been a standby throughout my life whenever I've come down with colds or flus. The recipe was handed down from my mother.

Cut up some oranges, mandarins, satsumas, lemons, grapefruit or any other citrus fruit you like. Transfer it all to a big jug and add any or all of the following ingredients:

ginger root cut up

garlic chopped up

whisky (or whatever other alcoholic drink you like)

a big lump of honey

You could also add herbs and spices, as the fancy takes you, and then pour boiling water over the lot, brew as a tea, and drink as much as you can as hot as you can manage until you feel better. You can top up the pot with fresh boiling water until the ingredients are exhausted, and then you need to chop up a few more ingredients and start again!

This cold and flu recipe acts like magic. I highly recommend it.

Wonderful Garlic

This herb is the number one item on my list of the finest foods for detoxification. Garlic is a great cleanser and sterilizer of the digestive tract, creating a harmonious environment within it. It's cleansing, cooling and soothing. Nasty fats and cholesterol deposits are removed, the liver is cleaned and encouraged to health and settles the other digestive organs. Garlic also cleans out the arteries, improves the skin, one's overall health and balance of the mind.

It is recommended that you eat at least one whole clove a day! Do not cook the garlic as this destroys its benefits and never fry it with the onions. If you want to add garlic to cooked food, add the garlic at the end of the cooking time to get the full effect.

Some of you may be concerned about the strong aroma of garlic coming off your body after you've eaten it. If this is what happens, then this just goes to show how much you needed to be detoxified! This is actually an indicator of how much you needed the garlic to help you detoxify. Just keep at it. Eat a clove each day and you will find that over time the smell goes away. This will prove to you how effective it is in ridding your body of toxins and dissolving all those nasty cholesterol and fatty deposits!
