DIY Cough/Cold/Immune booster Medicine

I have been making this all winter and I love it. Since flu and cold season seems to be on full swing, I figured I post this. It has helped me not to get sick, so I thought it may help you too!

I pretty much take it when a member of my family starts getting sick, or when I feel I am getting sick myself.

The properties of the vinegar, ginger, cayenne and honey are superb so it doesn’t hurt to take a tablespoon of this concoction every day for preventive measures.

Since taking this, I have not gotten sick once. Note, all my family members have, so this must be working!! I take this followed by zinc, and so far so good.

Originally this was suppose to be a cough medicine, which is strictly what I used it for at first, but then, I used it for when getting sick or preventing getting sick.

I tried to give this medicine to my 2 year old but no luck however my 6 year old does tolerate it!

I think this is something I will be making for years to come. It does work for me, it is natural and I love it.


This is working for me thus far. The properties here are outstanding so I hope you like it.


DIY Cold Medicine

Yield: 8 servings


1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 cup raw honey
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup warm water



Mix all the ingredients until they dissolved and store in a jar in the refrigerator. I take 1-2 tablespoons every 4 hours when sick and 1-2 tablespoons when I feel I am starting to get sick or a member of my family is sick.

Sometimes I take 1 tablespoon a day just because s the properties of these ingredients are outstanding :-)


  1. Do you think I can spread it on the bread? A delicious medicine ;-))

  2. wow.. i wonder what is doing the trick in this… ginger is definitely a remedy. In the Indian culture, we make a lot of Ginger Tea which helps soothe cold symtoms.

  3. Oh no. I think that’d make my tummy upset. But you know what, it’s always upset so who knows? :) I might just try it. I always get sick and I’m tired of it. If someone on the train sneezes near me, it’s almost guaranteed I’ll be sick two days later. Really annoying!

  4. I think I need to make a batch of this :( We’ve been so sick this year, I think because my son just started school. Spring can’t come fast enough so we can all get some vitamin D :)

  5. Ginger produces a hot, fragrant kitchen spice.[5] Young ginger rhizomes are juicy and fleshy with a very mild taste. They are often pickled in vinegar or sherry as a snack or just cooked as an ingredient in many dishes. They can also be steeped in boiling water to make ginger tea, to which honey is often added; sliced orange or lemon fruit may also be added. Ginger can also be made into candy, or ginger wine which has been made commercially since 1740.’

    Catch you around

  6. How long could you store this in the fridge for?

  7. This looks great I will try to make it. Thanks.
