Health Findings, A New Addition

A little under a year ago, I had some health issues and starting researching and testing some natural remedies. This past month I was able to perform with the League of Christian Actors in the musical, Les Miserables. It was fantastic. I had a blast amidst a very busy schedule. In that time I got sick and was introduced by fellow actors to the Master Tonic. I am in the process of making it myself - it takes 2 weeks to ferment. But from what I have read, it is a great way to boost the immune system to avoid sickness and a great way to ward off sickness when it knocks on your door. So here it is:
5 Raw Ingredients of Equal Portions: Garlic, White Onion, Ginger, Horseradish, & Peppers (I used serranos) Mix together in a food processor.
Fill your container (I used Mason jars) half full with the mix from above, then fill the rest of the jar with Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)(Unfiltered - with the Mother). Then shake and store in a dark place for two weeks to ferment. Shake them daily. Then after 2 weeks (which will be the 17th for mine), I will then strain it. Next you take a couple of shots of it a day.
Everyone in the cast was talking about how horrible tasting this stuff is, but when I took some from a friend, I found it to be not too bad. It tasted like a marinade and wasn't too hot or bad tasting. I've been taking shots of just the ACV, and it is much better than that is straight.
I will report my thoughts on it, once I add it to my daily regimen. Anyone up to trying this with me?
