How to Make the Immune Tonic Brew.

15 01 2016

The Immune Tonic Brew contains many herbs in the dried raw form…Ie. American Ginseng whole root, Reishii Mushroom, Codonopsis, Licorice Root, Sassafras bark, Maitake Mushroom, Shitake Mushroom, Astragalus root and Echinacea angustifolia root.

It is meant for modulating your immune system so it will help if it is over-active or under-active.  It is used during the season changes when people often get sick.  You can take it to prevent getting sick or to help you get better if you are already sick.

Usually you take about 1/4 to 1 cup per day.  I recommend staring with 1/4 cup and then taking it more frequently if you are fighting something off up to 3x per day.

Supplies needed are:

  1. Crock pot or large pot that can hold 4 litres of water.

     2. Stainless steel colander

     3. Cheesecloth at least 24 inches long.

     4. Stainless steel bowl.

     5. Sterilized jars with lids.  (Run through dishwasher.)

Step 1. Soak all the herbs given to you in the bag for 8 to 12 hours…12 hours is better and longer is okay…in 4 litres of water..purified water…Ie. filtered with no chlorine or other contaminants.

Step 2. Turn crock pot or stove if using large pot on stove, to low and bring to a simmer.  It may take an hour or more. 

Step 3. Simmer for 4 hours.

Step 4. Allow to cool.

Step 5. Line the inside of the stainless steel colander with cheesecloth.  Make sure that the cheesecloth goes up over the sides of the colander.  Place this over a good-sized bowl.

Step 6. Pour the mixture with the herbs through the cheesecloth/colander into the bowl it is sitting over.

Step 7. Once the liquid is all in the bowl, take the cheesecloth and pull it around the “marc”, which is the herbs and squeeze all the liquid you can out of it.  Then discard this into the compost.

Step 8. Pour all the liquid from the bowl into jars.  You should have about 3 litres.  Refrigerate.

Step 9.  It should keep in your fridge for at least 4 to 8 weeks or longer.
