This is a guest post from Nancy at On the Home Front.
During the winter months when there is so much flu going around we try to take all precautions to stay healthy.
When my son was younger he would usually be the one to catch whatever flu bug was going around. A friend of mine shared this recipe for The Master Tonic and once we started using it even my son stayed healthy!
I’ve often thought it would also make a good seasoning for a Chinese dish. It is meant to be used to gargle with first and then you swallow it. If you use really hot peppers I swear you can feel the heat flowing through your blood vessels. I have shared this with several friends who now use it during the flu season as well.
I share it with you today exactly as it was shared with me. Beware when you chop fresh horseradish the fumes are quite powerful, and when you chop hot peppers DO NOT rub your eyes, and be sure to wear gloves! When you gargle and swallow with this tonic I swear you can feel fire coursing through your veins!
Master Tonic: A Natural Antibiotic
Pro biotic: antiviral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitical.

This is a modern-day version of a recipe for an extremely powerful natural antibiotic originally used to fight infection like the Bubonic Plague that killed over a third of the world in the 1300’s.
Unlike pharmaceutical antibiotics it fights both bacteria and viruses, and is effective against pathogens that have developed immunity to existing drugs.
1 part fresh chopped garlic cloves (anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral anti-parasitical)
1 part fresh chopped white onion, hottest onions available (similar properties to garlic)
1 part fresh gated ginger root (increases circulation to the extremities)
1 part fresh grated horseradish root (increases blood flow to the head)
1 part fresh chopped Cayenne Peppers, the hottest peppers available, i.e. Habanero, African Bird, or Scotch Bonnets etc. (A great blood stimulant)
1 bottle raw, unfiltered, unbleached, non-distilled apple cider vinegar
Fill a large glass jar ¾ of the way full with equal parts of the above peeled, fresh, chopped or grated herbs.
I use a ½ gallon glass-canning jar and add a cup of each of the above ingredients. Then fill up the rest of the jar to the top with raw, unfiltered, unbleached, non-distilled apple cider vinegar.
(It should look milky) shake jar at least once a day for two weeks, and then filter the mixture through a clean piece of cotton (an old t-shirt) or cheesecloth, then bottle and label. If possible make sure all the vegetables and herbs are fresh and organically grown if possible, use dried herbs only in an emergency.
This tonic stimulates maximum blood circulation while putting the best detoxifying herbs into the blood. It strengthens the good guys (probiotic) in your system that helps define against infection that broad-spectrum pharmaceutical antibiotics kill. This formula is not just for the sniffles; it has helped to turn around the deadliest of infections.
The dosage is ½ to 1 ounce, two or three times daily (1-2 Tbsps. a time), gargle and swallow. Don’t dilute with water. For ordinary infections, a dropperful taken 5-6 times a day will deal with most conditions. It can be used during pregnancies, is safe for children (use smaller doses) and as a food is completely non-toxic. Make up plenty; it does not need refrigeration and lasts indefinitely without any special conditions.
(I believe the friend that shared this with me got it from The University of Natural Healing, Dr. Richard Schultzs’ adaption of Dr. Christopher’s’ original anti-plague tonic)
