In 400 B.C., Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, treated his patients with natural apple cider vinegar for its powerful cleansing, healing, and germ-fighting qualities. (This recipe is from the cookbook "How It All Vegan".)

Top Review by Mimi Bobeck

I made this recipe exactly as is, except I used a teaspoon of real sugar because I don't like asparteme. I DID use the 1/4 cup of cayenne. I also made it a second time, and I ran out of cayenne pepper, so I used 1/4 cup of "Franks Red Hot" instead. I can see how this would kill germs. Next time I get sick I will remember to make this. It was unusual in taste. Like a "spicy Lemon-Zinger" tea. The cayenne pepper really cleans out your sinus without being obnoxiously hot. I would highly recommend this for: Head Colds, Chest congestion, ear infections, and influenza.
