So it seems that every facebook status update I read this last week was about someone being sick. Now I have a lovely little cold too. I'm sure I caught it from my kids, not facebook, but you never know.
Letting a cold run it's course is always best, rather than taking too many meds.
I'm drinking a hot "toddy" made with Apple Cider Vinegar, honey, cinnamon, lemon and water. It's supposed to help alkalize the body as well as kill those nasties. Let me make this clear: It's NOT a flavor I like and I don't pretend to enjoy it. But the benefits of apple cider vinegar used since Hippocrates, are supposed to be numerous. Honey helps kill germs. And cinnamon is an anti-oxident. I use Braggs which you can get at most stores, all health food stores or online at Vitacost.
So here's the recipe . If you're sick or feel a cold coming on, give it a try.
Boil about 6-8 ounces filtered or purified water
Pour into a mug in which you've mixed a 2 teaspoons of honey, a few drops of lemon juice, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and about 1 tablespoon of Braggs ACV( don't forget to shake it well). Mix well.
Let cool a few minutes and sip until done.
Feel better! Let me know how it works for you
