Let Your Food Be Medicine and Your Medicine Be Food: Master Tonic

I will steer clear of controversy and not offer my opinion on whether you should receive an immunization for the flu!  But I will say that yesterday I spent much of my day procuring the ingredients for and then preparing my first ever batch of Master Tonic for my family.  This will steep for 2 weeks:

After I strain it, the resulting liquid will be the only flu shots this family will take this year!

That jar includes equal parts of fresh chopped garlic, white onions, ginger, horseradish, and hot peppers, covered in raw, unfiltered, unpasteurized Apple Cider Vinegar, including the living "mother."

This Master Tonic recipe was designed by a doctor as a fresh herb, living alternative to Dr. Christopher's plague formula, and according to the doctor, it "can't go bad, because vinegar already is, and will last almost forever."

Dr. Schulz wrote further that,

"This tonic is extremely powerful, because all the ingredients are fresh. Its power should not be underestimated. This formula is a modern day plague tonic. It is said that when added to an incurable routine it could cure the most chronic conditions and stubborn diseases. It stimulates maximum blood circulation, while putting the best detoxifying herbs into the blood. This formula is not just for the sniffles, it has helped to turn around the deadliest diseases."

You can find the complete instructions and many more notes about making Master Tonic, including testimonials at Pat Robinson's blog at Heal Thyself. I pulled the above quote from her post, and the source for that quote can be found over there.  I have already thanked her once for sharing this with me and I am thanking her again now!  I am so excited to taste this strong and spicy tonic!  I used a whole lot of fresh frozen peppers from our garden this year for mine, including habanero, jalapeno, cayenne, and tabasco peppers.  The finished brew can be added to everything, including stocks, soups, and I am looking forward to trying it as a marinade for meats, too.

One note that I want to include here is that, for maximum strength, Master Tonic should be prepared at the new moon and steeped until full moon before straining.  This way the gravitational force of the moon (the same one responsible for the tides) will be working to extract maximum goodness from the ingredients.  It is generally outside the topic of this blog, but using the moons cycles is extremely helpful in life by teaching right timing.  If this is something that interests you, watch my new astrology blog, Astral Logic, for upcoming  posts exploring this and other subjects.
