Healing Juice from Jamaican Friend of Friend

Here is the recipe for the magic concoction I promised you in my newsletter.

This was given to me when I was feeling rough and had no voice.

Many thanks to Kristen aka Knuckles at Bennu for gifting me with such a kindness on a day when I really needed it.

I had no voice and was supposed to be at a call back in an hour and a half. Voice came back right away and I felt better even on the walk home.

It doesn't taste fantastic but it will do the trick! Get that gunk out of your chest fast!


Concoction ingredients:

Fresh Lime Juice



Cayenne Powder

Hot Water



Sip on it hot and enjoy!

  1. Try this one as well:

    juice of half a lemon
    Half tsp tumeric
    Half teaspoon cinnamon
    Dash of cayenne
    Slice of fresh ginger
    Hot water

    Amazing stuff for even when you're not ill!! Measurements can be changed to your liking 🙂

    I'm sure this concoction is the reason I've been fighting of the colds! Xx

    1. Yes! I was going to suggest something very similar! Only I don't use cayenne (purely for taste) instead I use Thyme, it's actively anti microbial and anti inflammatory and gets rid of a sore throat in minutes! If you can use all fresh ingredients and slow boil them in a pot of water with the LID ON, you will better extract the active ingredients! 🙂 yummy with honey too!

      1. I use a similar one and I drink it by the bucket load during the colder months:
        Couple slices of lemon
        Grated ginger- LOTS!
        Spoonful of local honey
        Fresh sage leaves, as these are detoxing and draw out mucus.

        I really can not express how fantastic drinks like this are! They heal me so often.

  2. When I am sick I try to clean my body with everything I can and one best thing is detox tea. Try it out:

    1 inch of ginger
    2 cups of water
    cayenne pepper
    juice of half lemon
    Stevia to sweeten up

    I crate the ginger, add lemon, pepper and stevia in a tea pot and add hot water. Leave it for 2-3 mins and drink all day long. (All at once spikes the sugar levels if you have diabetes, so share)!

  3. Another one that I've been using for years, and has always worked... 1 cup of hot tea, add one chopped clove garlic, lemon juice and honey to taste. Sip slowly, and if you are brave... eat the garlic at the end. In 20 minutes you will break into a sweat, and you will feel much, much better. Also helps with that painful, can't-swallow, sore throat and clears congestion, as in... you will need a large kleenex to blow it all into. Feel better fast, Adrienne! 🙂

  4. These are brill thanks.

    I'm a music teacher and tend to lose my voice or have a sore throat quite often so will try these. I'm a bit fed up of honey, lemon and hot water!

  5. I am Indian and i am a strong believer in naturopathy healing. You may add little carom seeds, cumin seeds, cinnamon stick and use this concoction to boost immunity. This HELPS keep virus away.
