This is a simple syrup for your family even a child to make up that is very effective, inexpensive and taste great. Surprisingly, there is no garlic breath with this – possibly something to do with the lemons. The mix can be kept in a glass jug in the fridge. It actually taste sweet, but for a child you may add some honey to taste. I recommend it for everyone in my Clinic who has any mucus build up in their lungs or throat and has difficulties to expectorate it, while addressing patient’s immunity.
Dose: 30 ml, 2-3 times per day. In acute or severe cases this can be more frequent. Patient can also take this remedy as part of a maintenance program to prevent sinus build-up, or as a preventative for colds during winter and changes of season.
30 cloves of garlic.
1 litre water.
Heat water in a saucepan.
Roughly chop the lemon and garlic (no need to peel the cloves) into the water. Bring to the boil with the lid on, then simmer for 30 minutes, occasionally mashing the garlic and lemon with a potato masher while simmering.
Let stand 30 minutes with the lid on.
Press the mix through a sieve into a glass or ceramic jug. Discard remaining pulp and skin. Keep covered in the fridge.
