    I came across this in a magazine giving ideas for healthy teas. I made this up and found it great either hot or cold. A nice change from ordinary lemon tea for when you have a cold or flu or even just to have hot on a cold night as a comfort drink or iced for a refreshing pick me up.

    Recipe #236862

    These 3 combos are more informational than they are real recipes, but I still could not resist sharing them w/you. I got them from Raymond L, a friend & ex-boss from my Dallas days. The final words of his E-mail were "If you share these w/10 people & only 1 of them does not know about them, then it was worth the effort." Sharing them here w/all of you certainly increases the probabilities his comment will be true. :-) (Times do not include time for mixtures to sit or cool)

    Recipe #206319

    I waitressed in a one horse town on the West Coast of South Africa called Malmesbury. Nothing ever happened, but Friday night was buzzing and we ended up going out after work and partying till 6 o'clock the next morning. This is what lead to my invention of the hangover sandwich to ease the pain of the morning after "want to lay down and die" feeling!

    Recipe #98959

    Love this smoothie whenever last night was a little too much fun and I'm paying for it in the morning.

    Recipe #133936

    This can provide sweet relief for sore throats caused by colds, flu, allergies, smoking or even dry air.

    Recipe #112331

    I took my daughter to the doctor one day, she was sick and dehydrated. The doctor gave me this recipe for her, saying it does the same thing as pedialyte with out the expense. He also said this is what he uses when his kids are sick. Furthermore ginger ale has too much sugar. It causes other problems making children dehydrate even more. My daughter didn't mind the taste and it seamed to be soothing on her stomach. The only suggestion I'll make is to make sure the orange juice isn't really acidic. I just had to post it so I didn't lose it.

    Recipe #236811

    I recieve emails from Prevention Online. These come weekly and have lots of interesting articles. This was "Posted: Apr 25, 2004". I wanted a safe place to keep it and to share it with the people of Recipezaar. This is posted in the Health Discussions: Conquering Cholesterol. Here is a link for Prevention for cholesterol: http://www.prevention.com/cda/channel2002/0,2469,s1-683,00.html . I like to find tonics and cures that are affordable and use natural ingredients. Sometimes we need prescriptions, but a little prevention may just go a long way. I see a pattern of age and weight as contrubuting factors, besides genes and this is a natural occurance for so many of us. Even if we are within a healthy weight range, we may not be the weight we were when we were teenagers and 20 somethings. I'm thinking this contributes individually and am interested in finding out. I hope this helps somebody!

    Recipe #177999

    This came from a hints, tips and remedies yahoo email group. I love remedy recipes and I want to see more of them here. The author used this to calm irritated tissues and clear the air during the San Diego fires. She normally uses it for colds.

    Recipe #107616

    This is a cough syrup you can make and take all you want. My mother made this for me as a child and I did the same for my two kids and grandchildren. It tastes good and is all natural. It does help the tickle. The vinegar cuts the molasses and the butter makes it smooth.

    Recipe #203387

    One of the first signs of liver disfunction is emotional difficulty related to anger: impatience, frustration, resentment, violence, belligerence, rudeness, edginess, arrogrance, stubbornness, aggression and an impulsive and explosive personality. Depression, mood swings as well as excessively emotional in general are liver-related. Tiredness, dark circles under eyes, poor digestion and dull skin are also symptoms of poor liver function. Try this detox recipe!

    Recipe #198678

    This is a lemonade-based fast prescribed for detoxification and weight loss. I found it when I was looking to detox my body. It was presented to me by a highly regarded holistic nurse, Sandra Duggan, who is one of the co-founders of the Cayce-Reilly School of Massotherapy at the ARE. According to the book she gave me, this is a healthy way to fast because between the lemons and the maple syrup you get all the micronutrients you need to sustain the body. Grade B syrup has higher contents of those macronutrients so use it if you can find it. Also, organic lemons are best. You can leave out the cayenne if you are spice-averse; its role is to help break up toxic deposits within the body. The citrus can do that as well; the cayenne just helps it go faster. It would be well to get a colonic during the time of your fast in order to aid along the detox/weight loss process. I used the fast for 2 days and lost 10 lbs that week (though weight loss was not my goal). Use this fast with spiritual goals in mind and you can achieve great results.

    Recipe #79145

    we call it Joy's Juice, beacuse my mums aunty joy invented it

    Recipe #181294

    In my search for some natural medicinal recipes, I found this one that claims to help emulsifie fat, help with urinary infections and respiratory infections. You can drink this cold or warm. If you use the regular green tea, you can add a small pinch of any of the spices that are in the Chai tea, for added flavor. They include- ginger, cinnamon, cardamon, allspice, nutmeg, and clove. I used the green Chai tea. It smells wonderful and is really quite enjoyable.

    Recipe #182859

    This is a home remedy for that horrible cough that you just can't get rid of, and best of all: you probably already have all of the ingredients!

    This natural method dries out the rash very quickly. Hope you have a quick recovery! I have to give this credit to Nancy a client of mine. She uses it and swears by it. Make sure you wash clothes and shoes as soon as possible. To relieve itchy skin whatever it may be, give it a try.

    Recipe #128233

    If you have a cough,say bye-bye!In 12-24 hours, you will probably be in A-1 health!

    Recipe #153828

    No joke, this simple concotion from the famous, Vermont Folk Medicine book by D.C. Jarvis works like a miracle, but it's just Mother Nature at work for us. Apple Cider Vinegar is known to have so many medicinal/healing attributes, so put this one to work for your sore or strep throat. Yep....strep. This will knock the crapola out of the bacteria that's tryin' to knock the crap out of you. Be very sure that you are using real apple cider vinegar, as Heinz now makes an apple cider vinegar "flavored" liquid. (WHY??)
