This is the post in which we say goodbye. We’re both leaving our respective jobs at Beliefnet, and so it’s time to step away from the blog. So, this is the post in which we say goodbye…by saying thank you. Thank you to you, the readers, for clicking and visiting and sharing the myriad ways […]
As regular FL-ers know, I’ve been sick most of the looong winter and cooold spring. About a week ago it looked like I was getting ill again and the healer I just started seeing suggested downing some of Dr. Schulze’s Supertonic. I just got some last night, so I can’t fully attest to its powers, but, wow. This stuff has some kick! And is a perfect preventative in the midst of swine flu panic.
The liquid concoction’s ingredients: fresh Habanero pepper, garlic bulb, white onion, Hawaiian yellow ginger and horseradish root. You can take it straight or in a little water and it’s suprisingly delicious–and not nearly as spicy as the pepper might suggest (and I am a spice-wimp). Each ingredient is well-known for kicking some viral butt and rallying immunity. And many of the ingredients are either organic or wild-crafted, yay!
Habenero pepper: reduces inflammation, clears mucus membranes, detoxifying
Garlic bulb: anti-fungal and anti-viral
White onion: anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, good for digestion
Hawaiian yellow ginger: anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, improves digestion
Horseradish root: antibiotic, expectorant, heats up the body to detox
One person out there has a recipe for DIY Supertonic and even suggests putting some on a salad. Which sounds delicious. I figure, medicine that’s potent and tastes good enough to snack on (that isn’t Flintstones vitamins), is something I can wildly recommend–and I’m very finicky and skeptical about most potions.
(But obvi check with your doc before taking my word for it.)
