COUGHING AND WHEEZES
these are a few of my least favorite things.
As winter looms large on the horizon, so do winter colds.
In an effort to battle these nasty afflictions, I offer you this handy-dandy, cures-what-ails-ya, guaranteed 100% snake-oil-free recipe. It has been passed down from generation to generation. Time tested and Grandmother approved. Come one come all, step right up and get your copy of this one-of-a-kind tincture.
Growing up it was always just referred to as "THE CONCOCTION" (insert lightning flash and ominous dun-dun-dun sound)
For years I was convinced that the reason you got better from using it was that after the first dose your body knew that if it didn't get better more doses would follow so it would forcibly evict the germs by any means necessary rather than taste that mess again.
It may taste like the north bound end of a south bound horse .. but this stuff works. Taking it twice a day when needed, I rarely have to take it for more than two days in a row.
It turns out that the ingredients actually have medicinal properties.
According to the website DoctorYourself, apple cider vinegar has special infection-fighting properties and may support a healthy immune system. The oleoresins of ginger show up as ingredients in many cold and flu remedies, states the Mayo Clinic. Despite the lack of clinical evidence to support the use of ginger, the ginger root has a long tradition as a remedy for systemic and local infections, according to "The Encyclopedia of Medicinal Plants." According to the book "The Honey Prescription," by Nathaniel Altman, honey's enzymes make hydrogen peroxide, which may fight infections both internally and externally.
