Winter is Near- Colds, Flu …. Fire Cider Vinegar!

apple cider vinegar

This is not anything to do with life coaching but I did a course earlier in the year on herbs and their health benefits and just have to share this wonderful recipe for apple cider vinegar with you all.  It is a natural medicine for colds and flu and the credit goes to Elizabeth Heck a professional Herbalist.  I sincerely hope this helps through the cold, raw months ahead.


Apple Cide Vinegar the Recipe!

The ingredients are all natural, inexpensive and all you need is a large, glass, screw cap jar.


¼ cup of unpeeled thinly sliced horseradish

¼ cup of unpeeled thinly sliced ginger

1 whole head of peeled and chopped garlic

1 whole white onion

An 8th of a  teaspoon of Cayenne (this is very strong be careful how much you decide to use).

Apple cider vinegar


Put all the ingredients into the jar and cover with the apple cider vinegar, making sure the vinegar is 1 to 2 inches above the ingredients.  Cap it and put in a cool dry place for 4 to 6 weeks.

After this time strain the liquid from the jar into another jar and add honey to taste.  A ¼ cup of honey will give a sweet taste, use less if a vinegar taste is desired.  If you want to use this as a salad dressing use 1 part of the fire cider vinegar to 3 parts olive oil, whisk up and pour over the salad.

How to Take:

As a preventative take 1 teaspoon daily of the fire cider vinegar.  If you feel a cold coming on start taking a teaspoon every hour for two days.

Store: In a cool dry place and it should stay good for around six months.

Enjoy your warming fire cider vinegar in the winter months, it will also boost your immune system to help fight off those germs.
