Plants that were once a staple of our diet are now relegated to the weed pile or killed off with the toxic pesticides. Very sad, because, as I tell them, these plants are a goldmine of nourishment and bring much needed and often missing elements into our diet, an overlooked “superfood” literally in our backyards.
Simples Fire Cider Tonic is our version of a popular folk cold and flu, super immune remedy. Iterations of this recipe, combining herbs, apple cider vinegar and often honey date back to Medieval Europe, and there is a reason that this powerful tonic has stood the test of time and only grown in popularity. It’s potent medicine. It is a natural antibiotic, anti-viral, anti-fungal anti-parasitic, anti- candida, immune strengthening and is a circulation booster. It is a tonic you should always have on hand and it really does work wonders on a variety of ailments. It can be taken several times a day for acute illness or daily as a preventative tonic.
