Master Tonic and Natural Remedies

It’s the perfect time of year to get your Master Tonic brewing for the season ahead! ‘Master Tonic’ is a natural anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic tonic to take through the fall and winter months of cold and flu season when you are surrounded by coughing, sneezing and contagious people, or whenever you’re feeling under the weather.

Also known as ‘Fire Cider’, Master Tonic is made with raw garlic, horseradish, turmeric, ginger, onions, hot peppers, lemon and apple cider vinegar. These raw ingredients have pretty amazing medicinal properties on their own, and combined they give you a potent natural medicine!

There are many, many recipes online for this, some with less ingredients and some with more. I’ve tried finding the real history of this recipe and where it began, but no such luck so far. Many people believe that Master Tonic should be made with the moon cycles- make the tonic on the new moon and let it infuse until the full moon.  If you aren’t following the moon cycles, letting the tonic steep and brew for 4-6 weeks will do the trick!

When selecting ingredients, choose the best hight quality organic you can find. Choosing organic ingredients ensures that no GMO’s or pesticides will end up in your healing brew. Bonus if you grow some of the ingredients yourself!



Master Tonic Recipe

Ingredients

• 1/2 cup chopped and peeled fresh ginger
• 1/2 cup chopped and peeled fresh turmeric
• 1/2 cup chopped and peeled fresh horseradish
• 1/2 cup chopped garlic
• 1/2 cup chopped white onion
• 1/2 cup chopped HOT peppers {jalapeños, habaneros…go as hot as you can tolerate}
• zest and juice of 2 lemons
• apple cider vinegar {organic, with the ‘mother’}Directions

1. Add all of your chopped ingredients into a glass jar. I used a 1 gallon mason jar and it was about half full.

2. Cover well with apple cider vinegar by an inch or two. Some of the pieces will float to the top- use a plate, a fermenting weight or a large cabbage leaf…something to hold the bits under the apple cider vinegar to prevent any spoilage. The chunky ingredients will also absorb some liquid and expand, making sure to cover with an extra inch or two will account for this.

3. Let this tonic sit in a dark area such as a cabinet, at room temperature for 4-6 weeks to infuse. If you want to shake it up during this time and you are using a metal lid- make sure you have a barrier between the vinegar and the metal such as wax or parchment paper to avoid corrosion to the metal lid and contaminating your tonic.

4. After the Master Tonic has infused for at least 4 weeks, strain out the veggies and herbs and store tonic in a glass container. This will store indefinitely at room temperature.

5. The leftover chopped herbs and veggies can be used in other dishes to add flavor, composted, or I fed mine to our chickens hoping they get an immunity boost too!

The common weeds that can numb your pain just like morphine !

Will you be surrounded by sick kids, office mates or a sneezing spouse? Or you just want to keep your immunity in tip top shape? Preventative use of 1 tablespoon a day is a commonly used amount. If you’re already feeling under the weather, take 1 tablespoon 3-4 times a day until you are back to your healthy self. You can drink this straight up as a Master Tonic shot, or add to hot water as you would a tea, for a toned down version. You can also add raw, local honey or a bit of stevia to taste if you need some sweetness. One thing is for sure, this tart and spicy drink will clear your sinuses and warm you up!

If you are looking to add even more natural remedies to your medicine cabinet this cold and flu season, in addition to your homemade Master Tonic, our favorites include oregano essential oil and colloidal silver. Both make great natural additions that may just get you through the season with no sick days!

Pour your Master Tonic and bottoms up…here’s to a healthy ‘sick season’!

  2. Let’s respect our local coaches

    to have Zoning of NPFL

    Former Secretary General of the defunct Nigeria Football rapport, Dr Tijani Yusuf has expressed his happiness over the restart of the Nigeria cutomised Football League. your ex, unfortunately, Believes the existing league structure demands too much from the clubs given the limited resources at the clubs disposal.

    In this career with Jacob Ajom, Dr Yusuf who was also the Director of the National Institute for Sports is suggesting that the league be zoned as the country was too big to do a single league format. please read on:

    Dr Tijani Yusuf hardly talks in people’s sphere. He has been quiet since going from public service. It took Sports Vanguard several efforts to track down the former Secretary General of the defunct Nigeria Football Association. even though he agreed to talk, His findings were short, clear, sharp but incisive.

    inevitably, Yusuf who also worked as a Director at the Ministry of Youth and Sports Development said he was not happy with the state of sports in the area.

    Although he expressed happiness over the resumption of the Nigeria specialised Football League, Dr Yusuf said organisers of the opposition can improve on what they are doing at the moment and make life easier for the participating clubs.

    I am happy actuality that league has finally kicked off. a result of lockdown, Which affected all parts of the universe, The league were definitily on hold. But good think, We are now having matches of the NPFL every saturday, Like it is happening in other countries. I have no doubts that common would be high because Nigeria has abundant talents and that is what will be in exhibition every week.

    I believe the league will be better served if it is on television. in that regard, I am hopeful the NFF and the LMC which is headed by the NFF vice chairman, Shehu Dikko will do something positive about that. If we want the league to get stronger and get the very best out of the players, The league really need to be on TV. Yusuf still has bookings on the organisation of the league. He called for the creation of zonal leagues that would produce zonal champions before getting to the national level. Have to advise the League executives Company to zone the league. When I was secretary General of the NFA, Cote d no more than it is, Zoned their category. Imagine the spread of our country you’ll appreciate what pains the teams go through in a bid to meet up their tight schedules.

    as an instance, If Enyimba have a match in Aba on Sunday found a mid week fixture in Maiduguri against El Kanemi, How are they taking cope? Take a team that cannot afford flight tickets for their players, how things go about? They will set out for Maiduguri as they finish the match in Aba on a night bus. When will they get there, Get the required rest before playing on Wednesday? I think zonal leagues might be of interest because of our peculiarities. Yusuf also spoke on the national team, The Super eagles. He is not happy that a Nigerian is not handling the national team, Despite having numerous ex internationals who have played to the highest level and have acquired top coaching certificates.

    Have very knowledgeable Nigerians who, I believe can do a passable job with the Super Eagles, he said. He contended that the nation’s team was not at its best, inspite of the abundance of talent Nigeria has, Which clearly amounts to poor management. Can we use your? He invited. It is a colonial thinking. Yet we have Nigerian coaches who have proved their mettle with the national teams in the past. The recent Shaibu Amodu and Stephen Keshi. like, Keshi won the nations Cup. Coach Onigbinde took the Eagles to a sterling silver medal win in Cote d in 1984.

    We can give our indigenous coaches the enabling environment and the essential incentives, may well perform. Incentives don necessarily mean fat pay packages. as well as a good salary, Give him the mandatory backroom staff, Like good staff, doctor, psychologist, Match site visitors, Scouts, a powerful home, Official car etcetera. you will encounter them excel. They have proved this throughout and I believe they can do it again. Yusuf dismissed the notion that Sunday Oliseh who was given the opportunity to lead the Eagles abandoned the job midway. exactly who are saying about Sunday Oliseh and the Eagles job. There is more to the Oliseh case than [url=https://www.youtube.com/c/asiame]asiame scam[/url] what you know already. Forget what you are reading from the pages of newspapers. He would however not look into that, As he said, Is a story for another day former Director of the nation’s Institute for Sports would not talk on coach Gernot Rohr. Do you want me to say that will not be said about the man. If you are ruling and your subjects are talking against an actual thing, You must understand them. You don behave as if their views don matter. A lot is considered on Rohr. I have absolutely nothing to add or subtract.

    I am saying is that we give too much respect to white men and we are impatient with our ancient coaches. When it is about a Nigerian coach, We demand direct results. But we give longer gestation periods to foreign coaches. rewind, Let us learn to think in our own. Dr Tijani Yusuf sees no problem in the influx of players in the diaspora coming home to play for Nigeria, He is of the opinion that at least 20% 40% of the nation’s team should have been made up of local content. Should lay the foundation for the continuing development of our local game, He testified that. Am not against our born abroad coming to play for Nigeria.

    can be Nigerians. But to encourage and acquire the best out of our players in the domestic league, At least 4 to 6 players plying their trade at home should be as part of the Super Eagles. I am sure there are numerous of them that can fit the bill. This is cached page on VietNam training News.
