Nature’s "Antibiotic": Dr. Fong's Cold/Flu-Buster Recipe

December 11, 2014

By Diane Angela Fong, ND


Sometimes it starts as a tickle in your throat or a slight runny nose.... it's what you dread every cold & flu season - that "feeling" you get when you KNOW that you are coming down with something. Before you panic and chug gallons of orange juice or down a bottle of Nyquil, give this recipe a try! It uses simple ingredients that almost everyone will have in their kitchens. Make a fresh mixture at the first sign of illness, or better yet, make a whole batch and keep it on-hand for the next 6 months!



1 TBSP Raw Organic Honey Or Manuka Honey

(probiotic, antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, expectorant, and anti-inflammatory)


1 Crushed Organic Garlic Clove



¼ TSP Raw, Organic Ginger

(antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory)


¼ TSP Cayenne Pepper

(acts as a catalyst to increase the medicinal action of the mixture, anti-inflammatory)


1 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar

(antibacterial, antiviral)
