If you’re one of those people who easily gets the flu (like me, for example), this information will brighten your day. There is a modest, yet extremely powerful recipe for a homemade syrup that only takes about 20 minutes to be prepared. This elixir relieves sinuses, heals cough, cold and flu in a record time, and kids can use it too!
Here is what you’ll need:
Garlic, Honey, Lemon Juice
Garlic helps strengthen the immune system, works as a natural antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, and expectorant (it helps loosen up mucous so you can cough it up.)
Honey is great for soothing itchy and irritated throats. It is especially helpful if you have a dry cough.
Honey is also a natural anti-viral and anti-bacterial ingredient.
Why Lemon Juice?
Lemon juice contains high levels of Vitamin C. It also has antibacterial and antiviral properties. A combination of vitamin C and the antimicrobial properties make lemon useful for coughs.
– ½ cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
– ½ cup water
– ½ cup raw honey
– 5 large cloves of garlic – minced or pressed
Mix the ingredients together thoroughly (I just put everything in the blender), store the mixture in a container with a tightly fitting lid and keep it fresh in the fridge.
Take the syrup as much as necessary, but not more than a teaspoon every half hour.
This Honey & Garlic syrup is also known as Fire Cider. You can find it pre-made from many small natural companies.
May you and your family not need this syrup, but if you do, may healing happen quickly.
