Master Tonic Fermentation
MASTER TONIC FERMENTATION
FOOD AS MEDICINE:
Rumored to have been used in the 1300s to eradicate the Bubonic Plague, this formula is a plague remedy and can cure the most chronic conditions and stubborn diseases. It stimulates maximum blood circulation, while putting the best detoxifying herbs into the blood. The Master Tonic remedy is not just for the sniffles, it has helped to turn around the deadliest infections resistant to antibiotics and can be used in combination with conventional treatments as necessary. Use only fresh and preferably organically grown herbs if possible as this will make the most potent and effective Master Tonic.
Much of the immune-boosting properties of garlic come from its sulfur-containing compounds, which also give the bulb its aroma, particularly one called allicin. These compounds are anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal and protect against parasitic infections. They enhance the immune system and provide anti-tumor and antioxidant features, which help guard our cells. Most recipes start with garlic or onions so make sure to get your benefits by bumping up the intake through soup, stew, stir-fry, and salad dressing. Be sure to let garlic sit for about 10 minutes after being chopped as the oxygen activates its compounds!
9-10 cloves fresh chopped garlic, smashed and left out for 15 minutes to increase allicin compounds
1 chopped onion
4″ fresh ginger root, peeled
4″ horseradish root, peeled
1 cup cayenne peppers or any hot peppers seasonally available
1 cup Braggs Raw Apple Cider Vinegar, enough to fill jar
Fill a glass mason jar 3/4 of the way full with equal parts by volume of the above fresh chopped and grated herbs. Protect hands with gloves when chopping the hot peppers. I like to use a food processor with the shred blade. Fill jar the rest of the way with Braggs raw apple cider vinegar. Close the lid tightly and shake. Shake at least once a day for two weeks, and then filter the Master Tonic mixture through a clean piece of cloth, bottle and label.
The dosage for the Master Tonic is 1 or 2 ounces, two to four times daily. Swish and swallow. Don’t dilute with water. For ordinary infections, a dose taken 5-6 times a day will deal with most conditions. It can be used during pregnancies, is safe for children (use 1/2 dosage until 60 pounds of weight) and is non-toxic while providing antioxidant support. The Master Tonic does not need refrigeration and lasts indefinitely without any special storage conditions as the probiotics from the Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar and antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial compounds prevent bad bacteria overgrowth or mold.
Vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant deficiency have been shown to suppress the functions of the immune system which can contribute to the overall condition of one’s health and diseases such as arthritis, cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hormonal imbalance, infertility, ADHD and Autism, digestive disorders, food allergies and sensitivities, neurological conditions and fatigue. The Micronutrient Test assesses whether the foods you are eating or supplements you are taking are actually being absorbed into your body and present at the cellular level. This test will look at a variety of micronutrients involved in metabolism as well as antioxidants and an immune score.
