“Good For What Ails You” Tonic
Updated: Jan 15
Fire Cider, Cyclone Cider, Dragon Water are just some of the names used for this traditional folk medicine cold remedy. I call it “Good For What Ails You” Tonic because it just seems to be good for so many things.
The combination of vinegar infused with powerful immune-boosting, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, decongestant, and circulatory movers makes this recipe something that you can incorporate into your diet on cold, winter days. It boost the immune system, stimulates digestion and warms you up.
This tonic can be taken straight by the spoonful, added to organic vegetable juice with some olives and pickles, splashed in fried rice, or drizzled on a salad along with a high quality extra virgin olive oil.
