(NaturalNews) The super cleansing tonic is an antibiotic, destroying both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. It is also a potent anti-viral and anti-fungal/yeast formula, and will increase blood and lymph circulation to every part of the body. It is so effective that it is said to be the cure for colds and the flu, and is the herbal preparation of choice against Candida. This basic formula dates back to medieval Europe and the plagues.
Benefits of each ingredient: (All organic of course!)
Garlic is a broad spectrum antibiotic. Unlike chemical antibiotics that kill off millions of friendly bacteria that your body needs, Garlic only targets the invading bacteria and even promotes and increases your healthy bacteria. Garlic is also a powerful anti-fungal and literally destroys any antigen, pathogen and any harmful or disease causing micro-organism.
Onion is garlic’s next of kin and has similar but milder actions. Together they are a tremendous fighting duo.
Horseradish is a potent herb for the sinuses and lungs. It opens up the sinus passages and increases the circulation there, where most doctors agree, the common cold and influenza often start.
Ginger contains powerful anti-inflammatory properties and is a tremendous circulatory stimulant.
Cayenne (peppers) is the most powerful circulatory propellant known. It simply sends the antibiotic and disease fighting properties of the other herbs where they’re needed most.
Turmeric clears infection and reduces inflammation inside of the body. It blocks cancer from developing. Especially helpful for those with joint pain.
Apple cider vinegar: There surely must be something really healthy in using apple cider vinegar, since The Father of Medicine, Hippocrates, used this vinegar around 400 B.C. for its health giving qualities. It is said that he had only tworemedies: honey and apple cider vinegar.
Apple cider vinegar is made from fresh, ripe apples that are fermented and undergo a stringent process to create the final product. The vinegar contains a host of vitamins, beta-carotene, pectin and vital minerals such as potassium, sodium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous, chlorine, sulfur, iron, and fluorine.
Pectin in the vinegar is a fiber which helps in regulating blood pressure and reduces bad cholesterol. The beta-carotene helps in countering damage caused by free radicals, helping maintain firmer skin and a youthful appearance. Apple cider vinegar is good for those wanting to lose weight. It helps in breaking down fat which helps in natural weight reduction. Apple cider vinegar contains malic acid which is very helpful in fighting fungal as well as bacterial infections. This acid helps relieve joint pains by dissolving uric acid deposits that form around joints. This dissolved uric acid is gradually eliminated from the body.
