Master Tonic - bye bye colds!

I have just completed my first batch of "Master Tonic" (also known as Winkie Juice to Ywamers). It is one of the greatest natural remedies for colds, ailments, infections and illnesses. It is known as a modern day plague tonic. You can of course use it as a preventative and I intend to test it this winter to keep colds at bay.

I first heard about it 13 years ago from a speaker and chemist called Winkie Pratney. The taste isn't everyone's cup of tea but the health benefits are so worth it.

Here is the recipe:

1 bottle of unfiltered, organic apple cider vinegar
Equal parts of fresh:
Horseradish root (couldn't find any myself, so just used jar stuff)
Hot chillies (habenero, scotch bonet, seranos, indian, etc)

- Dice all of the ingredients finely (you can even blend them) and fill 3/4 of the way in an airtight jar. Fill to the top (leaving an inch) with apple cider vinegar.  
- Let it marinate together for 2 weeks in a dark cupboard, shaking at least once a day.
- Strain out the veggies and fill into airtight bottles. 

It lasts for up to a year in a dark cupboard or in the fridge. Take a tablespoon once a day, or 4-5 times a day if you're sick. Good luck...let me know if you try it! :)


  1. Hi Heidi, have been looking for Winkie's mixture and a friend said it was online, so I found you! I didn't know you were living in London. Love the title of your book and will try to get it. How are your parents? If you ever get north of London we would love to see you at Highfield Oval. Love to you, Marti Green
