I recently had a visit to the ER by the friendly EMS workers. Turns out I had a AFib attack and almost passed out. Lots of talk from the doctors about shocking me back into rhythm, nuclear stress tests, echo cardiograms, and whatever else they could add to the bill. I felt like a bag of money everyone wanted a piece of. Well, I didn't feel like being injected with radioactive dye, or being anesthetized and shocked! Who knows the short and long term effects of that. So, I started doing research. This lead me to the 5 mix and primarily this site as it has the most detailed recipe.
Today I went to Walmart and purchased a juicer for $49, and the ingredients to make a batch. I overbought as I have lots left over. The garlic juiced amazingly well, as did the ginger root. I juiced the whole lemon, peel and all. My 10 year old daughter helped break up the cloves of garlic. BTW, about 9 normal sized bulbs made 2/3 cup of garlic juice. I did not cook the mixture, added the honey directly to the juice, and flipped the bottle around for a couple of minutes to mix.
I know we're supposed to take it in the morning but I had to taste it. First thoughts.... Wow, this stuff really burns, like 151 going down... lol. The honey makes it cling to your throat so you feel it from your tongue to your belly. Kind of a head rush too. I wanted to chase it with some water but didn't, and after a few minutes it wasn't so bad. The taste isn't really bad, but the ginger really kicks. The aftertaste of the garlic lingers for quite a while though. I will see how I do tomorrow and perhaps follow up if I can but I will give this a try. Sure beats being put through the medical wringer if it can be avoided.
