Hot Tonic

I was just making a fresh batch of this and it occurred to me I've never shared this recipe here before. This tonic is so good for many ailments. It was developed by a naturopathic physician. The ingredients have been used for centuries with powerful antioxidants and disease fighting properties. It's been known to help people with arthritis as well as many other ailments. It clears the nasal passages which makes it powerful for colds and flu.

Note that this is very spicy. You can mix it in water or with honey to make it easier to take. Though, my kids take it straight on a spoon, so pull your panties up and try it ;) Do not take it on an empty stomach.

For a three week cleanse:
Week 1: 2 TB a day with each meal
Week 2: 3 TB a day with each meal
Week 3: 4 TB a day with each meal
After that 2 TB a day is a good maintenance.

In a blender, blend up: (organic ingredients are highly recommended)
1 bulb garlic (not a clove, a whole head), peeled
1 small yellow or red onion, peeled and cut in 1 inch chunks
1 piece of fresh horseradish (about the same size as the onion) peeled and cut in 1 inch chunks
1 or 2 fresh, small hot red peppers, seeds removed and cut in 1 inch pieces
1 piece of fresh ginger (about the size of the onion) peeled and cut in 1 inch chunks
apple cider vinegar to cover (about 2 cups)

This will last 2 weeks at room temperature or months refrigerated. Shake before use.
Makes about a quart.
