The Elixir of Life - an apple cider vinegar home remedy

Okay, you maybe thinking, apple cider vinegar, no way.  But you must try this formula.  If you have a nasty cold, stuffy nose, and a sore throat, then look no further than this simple but extremely important home remedy.  I call it the Elixir of Life.  I call it that because it is certain to deliver you from the grip of a severe cold.  Trust me! (HA!).

1. One half cup of hot water.  (I just zap a small cup in the microwave, but boiling it doesn't hurt a thing).
2. Three table spoons of honey.  (If you can get buckwheat honey that would be better, or your local farm would also be good, but nothing wrong with the good old classic store bought honey, if you must).
3.  Three table spoons of apple cider vinegar. (Oh Yeah!) (BTW, "organic" is much better)
4.  Three table spoons of fresh lemon juice.  (Nothing wrong with the concentrate you get at the store, if you don't have fresh lemons).

Combine all the ingredients in a cup, stir and let them marry.  Then slowly but surely, sip it like you would a cup of tea.  And get ready for some soothing and healing.  The apple cider vinegar is excellent for cutting through all that junk in your throat and upper cavities, then the steam will help open your nasal passage.  The lemon and cider will also cleanse your throat from bacteria because the acid is sure to kill any of  junky microbes.

Get well bec. now you know the Elixir of Life  Apple Cider Vinegar Home Remedy!
