Homemade Cold and Flu Tonic

Next time you feel a cold or flu coming on and don’t want to take liver toxic, over the counter medications, try this easy to make tonic. It’s very potent and can be taken as often as needed. Note: If you don't have a juicer, you can use a citrus reamer or fork to juice the lemon and simply grate the ginger and garlic and then squeeze through cheesecloth or a nut milk bag.
