What are the benefits of turmeric and where do you get a "chunk"? Never seen it in chunk form before...

Could you leave out the garlic? I know it is super good for you, but I am very allergic to it. I am working on healing allergies, but until then...I get short of breath if I have it.

Thoughts?

Sure, you can leave out the garlic. It's not going to be very healing if you can't breathe!
I think any one of the ingredients by themselves are healing. The combination of more than one is super healing. The more, the better!
Also, I just saw some garlic that was soaked/fermented(not sure which) in honey. Has anyone ever seen this or know just how good it is for you? It seems like it would be a great thing to use for colds, etc.

Well I made some today but didn't have fresh horseradish... I did have garlic and onion from my garden and picked up ginger and pepper while I was out. I am going against the moon phase advice, oops. I though it smelled alright, after I stopped crying from the onion, lol, but we'll see how brave I am when the time comes to try it!

By chunk (sorry bad choice of words)I mean a piece of root depending on the amount you are making perhaps a 1/4 - 1/2 cup grated fresh tumeric no need to peel.


I am so happy to see everyone embracing this! It is wonderful and you can dilute with water if it seems to pungent for you to drink.

Our master tonic is almost ready to go (the 4th is the full moon)! I can't wait, although I'm a little skeered to drink it!

I made some the first time this thread was around and LOVED it. I shared it with a few others and then ran out. I'd been thinking about making more and this thread coming back up was just the reminder I needed! THANKS!!!

I made more today and am looking forward to it being ready. Talk about waking up my body!! (BTW, taking it on an empty stomach makes me feel a bit queasy.)

(PS My kids loathe Fire Cider! But sometimes they'll take a squirt once they're miserable.)

So, if the whole moon thing necessary? Can I just make it and shake it daily for 14 days?

Also, it calls for 1 part of this and 1 part of that - are you all weighing or measuring to make sure you're getting equal parts of everything? or how are you determining how much garlic is equal to one part onion?

I did not make mine with the moon. I did not weigh or measure; I approximated the quantities very informally. I love my Master Tonic!!

We made ours with the moon just because we figured...why not? And we weren't precise at all in measurements. Just threw in a little of this and a little of that.

I think it is kinda an intuitive thing. Think about what you like, what you can get locally organic...What herbs are in the garden etc. I call it hippie science
post #54 of 174
I'm confused about how to make this. What recipe is everyone using?

I'm excited to try it!
post #55 of 174
Ok, so I've finally read this thread. I am SO on this. Well, that is, I will be on this come September 18th.

Yep, a lot of herbalist friends of mine love honey-pickled garlic cloves. They munch on them when they start to feel sick. Or when nobody is looking and they just want some.

I haven't tried it yet. I am really wanting to make some Master Tonic... with flu season coming, it seems like a good idea. Plus I love the idea of healthfully spicing up my chicken broth. :

Well, I did garlic in honey and ginger in honey, as well as 2 jars of master tonic (without horseradish as I can't find any). Plus, I put 3 gallons of chicken broth in the freezer. I am ready to fight off winter colds!!
I have found that I can stir a spoonful of Master Tonic into salsa and my kids eat it up!!

Ooh! I'd love to hear more about the honey pickled garlic cloves. Any idea how to do this? I googled but couldn't find any info...
post #59 of 174
ah, i had to LOL at this thread. i've been researching this tonic on my own for the past two weeks after reading about it on an organic chicken-keepers list (it's great for chicken immune systems too, apparently). so of course i come onto MDC for the first time in ages to this forum and surprise surprise, y'all are talking about the very thing i've been researching!

i'm really excited about making some, we have most of the ingredients growing in our garden so i only have to pick up a couple of things :

I really want to try this.. but my question is about the raw apple cider vinegar..
I used Bragg's a few months ago, but didn't refrigerate it after it had been opened. Of course it had a screw lid, but after about a week.. it was disgusting.. rancid.. too strong to take. I asked a gf about it, and she said it goes bad like that. Everything I'm reading on this says the ACV doesn't go bad.. so I'm lost.. I know in my experience it DID go bad for me, and happened to my friend. Any help ladies?
