Boost Your Immunity – DIY – Anti Infection – Antivrial – Anti Swine – Anti Anti Anti

This is a formula we make at home and have been using since our anticancer journey.  Hubby is doing well and I don’t generally get colds etc. so I can’t tell but when I compare it to store brands (and I looked them up in my herb encyclopedia), the ingredients are excellent for what they are supposed to do.

“Infection Fighter Formula

Use powdered herbs to capsulate or make a glycerin based extract

4 parts Goldenseal Root
3 parts Echinacea Angustafolia Root
2 parts Yarrow Flower
1 part Lobelia Herb

________________

How to make Extracts or Tinctures

The basic rule is 4 parts liquid to 1 part powdered herb, or 4 parts liquid to 2 parts cut or whole herb.

Glycerin based extract:
2 parts Vegetable Glycerin
2 parts Distilled Water
1 part Powdered Herb (or 2 parts cut or whole herb)

Mix ingredients together in clean glass bottle with lid. Store out of the light. Shake 2 times a day for 10 days to 2 weeks. Strain through clean, unbleached muslin. Throw away herbs and keep liquid in a light-proof bottle. This will store for approximately 3 years.

Apple Cider Vinegar or Alcohol Extract:
4 parts Apple Cider Vinegar or 40 proof Alcohol
(like Vodka)
1 part Powdered Herb (or 2 parts cut or whole herb)

Mix ingredients together in clean glass bottle with lid. Store out of the light. Shake 2 times a day for 10 days to 2 weeks. Strain through clean, unbleached muslin. Throw away herbs and keep liquid in a light-proof bottle. This will store for approximately 7-10 years.”

In short, here’s what I do:

Herbs as above (goldenseal root is bright yellow and the most expensive, about $8-9 an ounce)

1 32 oz Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar

I large glass bottle

Small glass bottles with droppers

Hydrogen Peroxide (to clean the glass bottles)

——-

For each part, we used tbsp as the measurement and one bottle 32 oz Braggs.  I use only Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar.

Very easy to make and a lot cheaper than buying store-ready.

This formula is totally credited to www.angelaharris.com – a wonderful herbalist who cured herself of lupus and lymphoma.

STORAGE – We put our tincture into small amber glass bottles with droppers.

My picture shows the store-bought (from Angela’s store) for $29, 4 ounces.

The tincture is set in a cool place and hubby shakes it twice a day.

My loose herbs probably cost me (I bought 2 ounces of goldenseal toot) about no more than $25 and I get about at close to 3 bottles at 4 ounces or more (hubby does the final pouring) so I save a bunch.

THIS ONE IS REALLY EASY TO DO.
