I am not a doctor, but I have always found human health fascinating. Science was a very interesting subject for me in high school, and I immersed myself in the study of biology, chemistry and physics. I was amazed by the body, its environment and what we ate, felt, our relationship with the earth, moon and the planets and how it all came together. The detective in me who was curious about “who done it” would kick in, and I loved to research and analyze cause and effect. I would marvel at how the human body is affected by external factors, such as the environment, as well as internal factors, including the food we eat. I would watch the waves on the shore and be inquisitive about their effect on the ebb and flow of the tide as they ultimately spilled onto the sand.

By the time I was an adult with children of my own and family to care for, I knew the importance of providing the healthiest foods available and protecting them from disease and illnesses. It was obvious to me that the immune system played an important part in wellness because it was not unusual for one of the kids to get sick but not the other. Then the reverse would happen weeks later.

I continued to be curious about the body and how it reacted and healed. My journey led me to become a healer, and quickly clients gravitated toward me as they found value in how I addressed the cause of the symptoms, rather than recommend a quick fix.

One of the most popular home remedy recipes I currently use is one I learned about years ago in a class I took about herbalism. I wish I could remember its source as I am ever so grateful to have it in my healing arsenal and so are a lot of my clients who use it successfully.

Garlic Tincture Recipe

  • 1 cup chopped garlic (skin on is ok)
  • 2 cups Vodka or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Mason jar

Put both ingredients into the jar and close tightly. Shake. Write the name of the remedy and date on the jar. Place in a cool dark closet for three weeks. Shake daily.

After three weeks, strain and press the juices and discard the solids. Pour the liquid into a bottle with a dropper. This mixture will stay fresh for up to one year and can be used when needed.

For flu: Take 4 drops three to four times a day until you feel better (one week maximum).


2 Cups Vodka or Apple Cider


Chop garlic


Cup chopped garlic
Liquid over garlic in jar


Pour liquid over chopped garlic


Put garlic in jar


Put jar in a dark cool closet


Shake jar once a day

You WILL SMELL of GARLIC. Ideally, take the tincture when you will be away from other people. This concoction is very popular. I recommend you log on to Google and read how it has helped others.

In addition to shortening the duration of the flu, some of my clients found that the garlic tincture is helpful for treating the following: lowering blood pressure, healing mouth sores, healing lip herpes (apply to sores), skin infections, flu, stomach upset, stomach flu, viruses and more.

The garlic tincture remedy is for ADULTS ONLY – not children or pregnant and lactating mothers. Always check with your doctor before taking.

I wonder if it will help with the new outbreak of the coronavirus? I would love to hear from our readers. Feel free to contact me.

Wishing you a healthy life and year ahead!

Lots of blessings,
