The famous Dr. Richard Shultz will show you how to make this powerful recipe, which he calls The Super Tonic. He calls it super-tonic, because it can be used for treating many different health conditions and problems. Tinctures are one of the best natural remedies, mainly because they use the most powerful ingredients and they keep the most powerful benefits from all plants. Let me say this in a very simple way – the tinctures absorb all the goodness from the herbs. And on the other hand, they are also very powerful home remedies and you should be extra careful when you use them. Well, usually if you want to make a tincture, you will use 80-proof alcohol. But, you should also know that you can use apple cider vinegar as well, if you want to avoid alcohol. A tonic is something that is meant to be taking over a long time and gradually, and effectively strengthens and builds the system. Apple Cider Vinegar is the perfect ingredient if you want to make a tonic tincture. Apple cider vinegar is 100% non-toxic, and it has many health benefits, such as:
- Helps to alkalize the human body
- Aids the digestive tract- if the apple cider is organic and unfiltered it will contain a ‘mother’ or a scoby (a symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast) which is an amazing probiotic.
- Acetic acid which is a potent antimicrobial and has been shown to reduce cholesterol, and helps insulin sensitivity
- Malic acid has antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties, and it also supports energy production which increases mental and muscle functioning
- It strengthens the immune system
As we mentioned before, the famous Dr. Richard Schulze calls this remedy The Super. Dr. Shultz recommends that you should use organic ingredients or preferably grow them yourself – you will be soaking them for their medicinal qualities and this means you need the highest, healthiest quality. This recipe is very simple and easy to make. All you have to do is follow the simple instructions.
- Fresh Habanero Pepper (or add the hottest pepper you can find)
- Garlic clove
- Ginger Root
- Horseradish Root
- Apple Cider Vinegar
This powerful recipe is made like most of the other tinctures. Here’s what you need to do – first, you need to put all the herbs into a glass jar, then pour apple cider vinegar over the herbs.
Then, you need to peel and chop the vegetables in small pieces and add them into the glass jar. Place all of the ingredients into the large glass jar and completely cover with apple cider vinegar so that the vinegar sits two inches above the herb and veggie line. Now, you need to place a firm lid on the tonic and while holding the lid in place shake the tonic so that it mixes and settles. Add more vinegar if needed. You can let the medicine sit alone for weeks or you can shake it daily, which is recommended.
Now, you need to strain the tincture. It will be much easier to store it and to use it. You will need a loosely woven piece of cloth, like cheesecloth, muslin, or some handkerchiefs, a large bowl, and a stainless steel colander that fits into the bowl. If you don’t have these tools, you can place the cloth over the mouth of the jar and pour until all of the liquid has come out but you will waste a lot.
Place the colander into the bowl and line the colander with cheesecloth. Pour the contents of the jar into this strainer. Take a flat object, like a plate, and press onto the concoction to press the remaining juices out.
You can pour the tonic into small jars or you can rinse your large jar and keep it in there. Tinted bottles, like amber glass, are recommended for storing tinctures because they reduce light damage. Store in a dark, cool place. Compost the remains or you can freeze to add a kick to soups and other dishes.
Once the tonic is ready you can start drinking it daily or as needed to support digestion, the immune system, and other ailments. Remember, you were soaking really powerful and spicy herbs so that is what it is going to taste like. You can add a little raw honey into the tincture, so that it goes down smoother but most take it as it is. Make sure you are drinking a lot of water throughout the day, too. One small cup (20-30 ml) should be more than enough. However, if you are fighting an infection or cold you can up the dosage to 5 or 6 shots a day. And remember, this is extremely powerful tincture. Make sure you follow all the instructions. You will be amazed by the results, this homemade recipe will boost your immune system and refresh your entire body.
