In the past, when there were no conventional medicines, people relied on natural methods for treatment of different health problems, both less and more serious. However, some of these methods are still beneficial. One such natural cure is the one presented below.
An ingredient which is a part of the remedy is apple cider vinegar which is rich in antibiotic, antiseptic, and antifungal characteristics which regulate the blood flow and destroy bacteria. It’s also known to strengthen the immunity and thus, prevent viruses and infections. Here’s how to prepare the remedy:
You will need:
2 tbsp of turmeric powder
700 ml of apple cider vinegar
¼ chopped garlic
¼ chopped onion
2 chili peppers (make sure to use gloves when handling the peppers)
¼ grated ginger
2 tbsp of grated horseradish
Preparation: First, mix all of the ingredients, except for the ACV, and then put the mixture into a jar. Next, pour the ACV and close the jar and store it in a cold and dark place for 2 weeks. Shake the jar daily during the two weeks. After the 2 weeks, strain the content. You can use the bits and pieces for salads or other food combinations.
Use: Take 1 tsp of the liquid and increase the dose gradually to one small glass daily. If you suffer from some more serious health problem, begin with 5 to 6 tsp per day. In order to prevent a burning sensation due to the intense flavor of the cure, eat a slice of lemon with it. Make sure not to drink water with it and before you swallow it, gargle with it. If you’re pregnant or if the remedy is given to a child, the doses need to be smaller.
