  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne powder
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar


  • Boil the water.
  • Stir in the salt and cayenne powder. Stir until the salt and cayenne have dissolved into the water.
  • Add the apple cider vinegar (we use raw apple cider vinegar).
  • Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator and take 1 tablespoon every 15-20 minutes until you start to feel better. This remedy is more effective if started right when you feel you may be coming down with something.
