’tis the season for coughs and colds and i’ve succumbed to a strain of the common cold that’s going around. i know over-the-counter cough syrups don’t do much of anything but, counterintuitively, “dummy treatments [produce] marked improvements in the participant’s conditions”. sooooo, here’s my recipe for my own, personal placebo. i don’t know if it really works, but i believe it might! it’s probably just the honey. it’s not much to look at but it’s tasty. sort of.
kris found a link to the recipe on pinterest but didn’t keep it so i can’t cite the source.
2 T raw apple cider vinegar
2 T honey
2 T warm water
1/4 t cayenne pepper
1/4 t ground ginger
mix together. plug your nose. ingest a couple of tablespoons.
