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.

Enjoy!

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

DIY Cold Medicine

Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients:

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

 

Directions:

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.’
