How To Make Your Own Master Tonic For Colds and Flu

I like to be prepared.

imageWhen my son stood beside our bed at 2 in the morning, telling me he couldn’t stop coughing, I knew that I had been caught unprepared. 

I had vowed to make the master tonic weeks before — but didn’t get around to it. The powerful, potent, antiviral, anti-bacterial, and virtual anti-plague remedy that I could have made from items in the produce drawer of my refrigerator. 

Yes, I did have my Honey and Ginger elixir, but I needed something that would just hit that virus like a baseball bat, and knock it right out of him.

It’s an easy process — but you’ll need to let it sit for a couple of weeks before the master tonic fully matures. I suggest you make it now — because it keeps forever, right on your pantry — and it will knock out a cold, the flu, or any other virus that crosses your doorstep.  


And you’ll be prepared.

To make this tonic, you will need to pull out your food processor (or a cutting board, knife and rubber globes)

  • 1 part fresh chopped  garlic
  • 1 part fresh chopped  white onion
  • 1 part fresh grated ginger root
  • 1 part fresh grated horseradish root
  • 1 part fresh chopped hot peppers (cayenne, habanero, serrano, jalapeño, etc.)
  • 1 part turmeric (optional) 
  • Apple Cider Vinegar 

Chop all ingredients, except the apple cider vinegar. You don’t even have to peel the onions or the garlic.  

Next, dump the ingredients into a wide mouth glass jar — a pickle jar would be perfect. You’ll need to cover the jar, but the acids will corrode a metal lid — so put a piece of saran wrap or waxed paper over the jar, and then add the metal lid. (Does not have to be air-tight.)

Let the mixture sit at room temperature for about 2 weeks. Stir the mixture at least once a day (your eyes will water when you pull off the lid.)

After two weeks, strain your mixture into a glass bottle, using a funnel and a coffee filter. I like to use a wine bottle with a cork  — as the metal will not hold up under the acids here.

Label your bottle, and store it in your pantry. 

To use it, simply take a “shot” straight” or mix it with some Honey and Ginger elixir. Take Master Tonic once a day to build your immune system. In case of sickness — take a shot or two at least once every two hours… with honey or not.
