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 :-)
