Fire Cider Cold and Flu Remedy, by Rosemary Gladstar

Our friend, Martha, posted this video on Facebook and David shared it with me. It combines a lot of things I’ve learned from various people along the way, including what the herbalist I apprenticed with in Seattle called “the triumvirate of herbs: garlic, onion and ginger.”

I also made a truly yummy antibiotic this summer when I had that cracked, infected tooth: apple cider vinegar, raw honey and many, many cloves of garlic. It turned out to be a terrible remedy for an infected tooth, due to the acid-sweet combo, but it certainly clears up any cold or other illness that wants to hitch a ride. (My teeth all healed, btw, through major energetic work that blasted the lurkers in there, but that’s another story.)

In addition, we keep oil of oregano on hand for sniffing, inhaling from a pot of steam, or taking internally in the event of flu or infection. I haven’t had a cold or flu since 2000. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” and, as my friend Wendy says, “I don’t use my body for sickness.” 🙂

The recipe Rosemary shares takes a month to prepare; however, the garlic-honey-ACV is ready in 3 days if you want something faster. As usual, no medical advice here … just sharing for your own research and inspiration. See also this post for a more unusual way of empowering your immune system.

  1. Oh, I absolutely love Rosemary & her work! Her books are my absolute favorite for herbalism. What a wise woman! Lots of love, Laura!! 🙂

    (Also, thank you for that post on 432 hz!!! Wow, the music in that frequency registers so differently. Many thanks! Loving the Neil Young greatest hits full album in 432 on YouTube — straight to the heart!)

    Seems like a good time of year to reblog this one. People always ask what David and I do to keep our immune systems in good shape.

    I haven’t done the herbal fire cider remedy in awhile, but we still keep oil of oregano on hand for sniffing, steam inhalation or occasional internal use if we feel anything coming on. We take Vitamin D (5000 or more iu’s) and Stamets 7 medicinal mushroom blend daily. We keep up our Vitamin C, and I often add Four Sigmatic’s “Defend” medicinal mushrooms to a reishi-cacao hot chocolate I make with macadamia nut milk and vanilla stevia. I also drink one cup of medicinal mushroom coffee each morning. I use a couple different blends, depending on what seems right on any given day.

    We love miso soup as an immune booster, and we take elderberry extract if we sense we’ve gotten exposed to something. We like that medicinal mushrooms are adaptogens, so they support whatever needs support on any given day. I can tend towards the autoimmune side of things, so for me, balance is key. Nourishing our whole body, mind, soul and spirit results in better immunity and a happier life!
