The Cold & Flu Recipe That Works Like Magic

Jul 16, 2008
I'd like to share this exceptional elixir with you. It is my mother's remedy for colds and flu. I have used it whenever necessary all my life.

Cut up some citrus fruit (lemons, oranges, satsumas, grapefruit etc) and put in a big jug together with any or all of the following:

ginger root cut up

chopped garlic

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 wonderful elixir will really pick you up whenever you feel unwell. I can't recommend it highly enough!

Fabulous Garlic

Garlic is the first item in my list of best foods for detox. Garlic cleanses and sterilises the gut from mouth to anus. It creates a harmonious environment therein. It is cooling and cleansing and soothing. It removes unpleasant fats and cholesterols and cleans the liver, encouraging the liver to health and settling all the other secondary organs of digestion. Garlic also cleans the arteries, thereby improving your skin, your overall health and the balance of your 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!
