Re: Viruses- the human kind!


My hot toddy is similar, one freshly squeezed lemon, strained, a couple tablespoons of honey, a shot glass of whisky (more or less, I usually do MORE...medicinal purposes only ya know) and hot water. Works like charm. Honey is a true gift of nature...absolutely NO bacteria can grow in it....and it helps with allergies if you use the kind harvested from your neck of the woods. I use honey as a sugar substitute in most everything.

Now, my Irish grandmother's cure for colds/virus was a hot toddy! Juice of half a lemon, 2 cloves, half a cinnamon stick, 2-4 ounces of whiskey in a mug, then fill it with boiling water. Even if it didn't cure anything, you felt better afterward!

Gees.... I guess I should be more techy about this stuff...:)

Before giving me the antibiotics, he first did the routine of tests-
lotsa blood work, samples, x-rays.... then determined I had something
that I can't even pronounce let alone spell.... My conclusion is a
non-techy type... cold/virus!

And FWIW, the cure for the flu is drinking hot jello... coats your
stomach, keeps you from dehydration, and sugar gives you a bit of
energy....

Sorry to get you all up in arms... But I will say that what ever it was
I had, I thought I was gonna die!
