The Apple Cider Vinegar Tonic That Quickly Destroys Cold And Flu Bugs

Written by: Lindsay Sibson

"Heartburn, nausea, indigestion, upset stomanc, DIARRHEA!"

I would have never guessed that such unhappy and uncomfortable symptoms could blend together to create such catchy jingle. 

Did anyone else ever find amusement in that commercial as a kid? 

I totally did.

However, what I don't find amusing at ALL is experiencing symptoms of illness.

As a kid, you got a sick day from school, chicken noodle soup and extra time in front of the T.V. 

But, when you are an ADULT that has to do real life things (such as going to work or taking care of your family), you just don't have the space for illness!

Here are 2 tonics that help DESTROY colds and the flu:

#1. Antibiotic Tonic

A powerful combination of foods and herbs that are antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and antiparasitic. Loaded with vitamin C, enzymes and probiotics. NOTE: the ingredients are blended to be highly effective. However, the taste is not very welcoming.


  • 1 oz apple cider vinegar
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 small onion
  • 1 piece horseradish (1/2 inch)
  • 1 piece turmeric (1 inch or 1/2 tsp ground)
  • 1 piece ginger (1/2 inch or 1/4 tsp ground0
  • Dash of cayenne pepper



  1. Peel garlic and lemon.
  2. Put in your juicer: garlic, onion, turmeric, ginger, lemon and horseradish.
  3. Alternative: blend and strain the mixture.
  4. Add apple cider vinegar and cayenne pepper. 
  5. Store in an airtight glass container. 


Notes: take 1 oz immediately when you feel symptoms, up to 3 times a day.

2. Quick And Easy 4 Ingredient Flu Season Tonic

Inflammation-reducing properties. Soothes and relieves sore throat pain. Works as a cough suppressant. Can help with nausea and other ailments.


  • 2 inches fresh ginger (peeled and diced)
  • 1-2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice



  1. Place cinnamon, ginger and water in a saucepan with lid.
  2. Cover pan and bring water to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat, simmer for 15 minutes with pan covered.
  4. Strain and pour into a mug.
  5. Add honey and lemon juice.
  6. Extra tonic can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator and reheated when needed (for up to 5 days).


Notes: take as needed to help with symptoms.
