Master Tonic Ingredients

1 part fresh chopped garlic cloves (antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antiparasitical)
1 part fresh chopped white onions, or the hottest onions available (similar properties to garlic)
1 part fresh grated ginger root (increases circulation to the extremities)
1 part fresh grated horseradish root (increases blood flow to the head)
1 part fresh chopped Cayenne peppers, Jalapenos, Serranos, Habeneros, African bird peppers....any combination of the hottest peppers available

Preparation
· Fill a glass jar 3/4 of the way full with equal parts of the fresh chopped or grated ingredients. Fresh herbs are best. Then cover completely with raw unfiltered, unbleached, nondistilled apple cider vinegar.

· Close and shake vigorously and then top off the vinegar if necessary. Keep the jar in a cool, dark place for 2 weeks. (I store it in my cabinet with the drinking glasses so that I see it and remember to shake daily.) 

· Shake the tonic daily a couple of times.

Begin this formula on the NEW moon and strain and bottle on the FULL moon, (approximately 14 days). Filter the mixture through a clean piece of cotton (coffee filter or colander), bottle and label.

Usage:
Strain liquids from solids after steeping about 2 weeks.

May puree the solids and add to honey or lemon juice, or make salad dressing or marinade for meats. Master Tonic lasts indefinitely at room temperature, after straining
.

Dosage:
1/2 to 1 ounce, two or more times daily, as needed. I hear it is not only the cure for the common cold but every other disease of mankind. lol

Note: Store your Master Tonic in a dark place.

"This tonic is extremely powerful, because all the ingredients are fresh. Its power should not be underestimated. This formula is a modern day plague tonic. It is said that when added to an incurable routine it could cure the most chronic conditions and stubborn diseases. It stimulates maximum blood circulation, while putting the best detoxifying herbs into the blood. This formula is not just for the sniffles, it has helped to turn around the deadliest diseases."

"...I designed this formula as a fresh herb alternative to Dr. Christopher’s plague formula, to be more alive, a herbal juice tonic, and believe me, you don’t want to be without formulas like this when you or your loved ones get ill; it will save your life. Make up plenty, it can’t go bad because vinegar already is, and will last almost forever..," writes Dr. Shultz.

Quoted from Sam Biser’s “The Last Chance Health Report” on Killer Viruses: A formula for stopping them when drugs fail. http://www.its-my-health.com/documents/MasterTonic.pdf


I've seen it recommended to add all ingredients to the blender to puree, others coarsely chop the veggies. I've also seen it recommended to consume it on top of bread and butter. And "if you eat it with cheese, it isn't even very spicy"?? The suggestion was to partake of it regularly in this way, like a condiment. :

Especially warming, if coming in from the cold, windy, wet weather. And, just sniff to clear the sinuses.

Supposed to be helpful for bladder and kidney issues? (Maybe because it makes you drink a LOT of water. LOL)

Apparently, excess ginger can cause uterine contractions?? So, caution with pregnancy.

This article describes some of the myriad of benefits from a scientific (sorta) perspective. http://fairhillsfarm.com/2008/12/11/some-good-old-fashioned-horsera...
Also, delicious on fish, salmon, halibut, etc.

Here is a commercial version, without the horseradish: Blair's Mega Death Sauce- Feel Alive! http://www.hotsauceworld.com/blairmegdeat.html

Maybe we need a bit of wasabi added?

Here it is Cyclone Cider Herbal Tonic: http://www.supplementwarehouse.com/viewitem.asp?idproduct=43121 It is an herbal extract of CAYENNE PEPPER, GARLIC, ONION, HORSERADISH ROOT, GINGER ROOT, PARSLEY in a base of raw apple cider vinegar.


Between this and some raw milk kefir, we could cure the world.

Whew~ that is potent stuff!


I was brave. I took most of a tablespoon, without taste testing first and put it in the back of my mouth, gargled (sorta) a bit and felt it go alllllllll the way down to my navel.

About half way down, I decided I needed a chaser. My eyes were a bit teary. (I had an emergency banana sitting ready. But, left it uneaten.)


I made enough for the whole neighborhood, it appears! It cost about $20 for all the ingredients; and I have four mason jars full! I strained mine and I believe it will keep indefinitely. I saved the strained chopped bits in the freezer for adding to soups and stuff to spice it up.



I hunted for a recipe which included additional herbs and spices. Does anyone have one?

I know the following have natural antifungal, antiparsitic, antibacterial properties: black walnut hulls, wormwood, clove, raw pumpkin seeds, fennel, thyme, sage, goldenseal, oregano, water, salt, essential oils: cinnamon, lemongrass, thyme, peppermint, lavender, coriander; olive leaf extracts, vit C, onion, allspice, tarragon, cumin; capsicums, including chilies and other hot peppers; black and white pepper, ginger, anise seed, celery seed, and the juices of lemons and limes; cranberries, myrrh, turmeric, echinacea, licorice root, Pau d'arco, rosemary, basil, mint, anise, dandelion, honey, garlic.

So, I was curious about including these, or making an alternate tonic with some of them as an alternate to rotate. But, I wasn't sure about including them in the Master Tonic.


I LOVE my Master Tonic. I've been adding a teaspoon of it to a cup of bone broth occasionallys. It is deliciously zesty and invigorating!

I put the whole peppers (with seeds and top little stem attached) in the food processor. De-seeding them seemed too difficult. My Master Tonic is wicked hot. It is easier in the food processor (than chopping/grating by hand) but leave the b...its coarse chopped, mine was diced to bits.

Use gloves!


Any jar will do. Mason jars are about $2 each at a (Ace) hardware store or Walmart of regular grocery. Or reuse an old mayo or pickle jar.

If you coarsely chop the ingredients, it is more mild than if you finely chop or puree the ingredients in a food processor. Coarse chopped makes it more palatable for children. Also, if you use a finer filter, like a coffee filter, rather than a metal strainer, more of the sediment is removed. Additionally, shaking it before each use increases the potency of flavor a LOT, lol. And imo, it is easier to swallow cold or warm, rather than room temp. And we chase it with honey. Diluted in water is another way to make it more palatable, sorta. ;-)

I add a shy tablespoon of the Master Tonic to a cup of bone broth. It is so zippy and warm and nourishing, especially when coming in from the winter cold, or first thing in the morning to get your blood moving!



(I did not make mine with the moon. I did not weigh or measure; I approximated the quantities very informally. I love my Master Tonic!!)

My understanding is that we shouldn't add ingredients after the ferment starts.

Ok when you say ferment, you mean just leave out in a dark cupboard correct?
I am very new to this stuff.
Comment by springmum on August 27, 2010 at 2:10pm
I just made enough to fill a large mason jar. I'll second the question about the dark cupboard? Leave it for 14 days - is that approx or is there a way I'll know it's "done"? My eyes are still watering just from blending it!! Thank you for this info...hopefully my DH will be willing to try it :)
Comment by Pat Robinson on August 27, 2010 at 8:21pm
I kept the jar in the cupboard with my dishes, so I'd see it frequently and shake the jar each day. Yep, 14 days, then strain the liquid. I froze the bits and toss a small pinch into broth or soup, etc.

It seems what is mentioned here is also known as fire cider :
http://www.herbalremediesinfo.com/firecider.html
I have had this for a while and sorta planned to make it for use in the winter but have been skeptical about drinking ACV because I had tried to use ACV to improve the acidity of my digestive tract but my ND said even if it only upsets the tummy moderately, it's not a good thing. I also notice the one here says to 'steep'/'infuse' for 8 weeks. I wonder if that falls on the full moon too ? I will probably make some. If it upsets my tummy, by boyfriend can use it.
Comment by Jamie on August 29, 2010 at 8:20am
I have been making this for a few years now and it is magickal! When I have a deep chest cold I sometimes put a portion in the fridge. Something about it being slightly chilled with the heat of the tonic is so soothing. I need to get on the ball and make my batch for this year. Thanks for the reminder!
Comment by Natalia on August 31, 2010 at 3:36pm
I will buy the ingredients from the farmers on Saturday. Looking forward to adding this to my healing toolbox.
Comment by Karen Bixby on September 7, 2010 at 9:06pm
I have lots of fresh herbs in my garden....does anyone add any to their MT??
Comment by Karen Bixby on September 10, 2010 at 4:51pm
New moon today, so just finished mine (found all the ingredients at Nuggets Market in Eldorado Hills, CA)...wish I didn't have to wait 14 days for the full moon, lol! Smells powerful....looking forward to more ideas to use in mealtime recipes!
