Rocket Fuel–A drink to give a quick BOOST to your Immune System

When I wrote my recent article about Natural Remedies for Cold and Flu Season, I promised to link you to the recipe for Homemade Rocket Fuel. This is a powerful drink that can stop an infection in its tracks if you catch it soon enough.

This is especially good for when you’re coming down with a cold or the Flu, or just about any kind of illness. Catch it at the start, and this natural remedy will work much better for you!

The Recipe–Rocket Fuel

Place all the following items in a BLENDER:

5 – 10 Cloves Garlic
1/2 Onion
2 Lemons
1 Thumb-sized piece of Fresh Ginger, or 1 TBS Powder
1/8 to 1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper Powder
1 tsp Elderberry Extract (may use Elderberry Immune Syrup)

Add enough WARM WATER to cover everything.

Blend well.

Add enough WARM WATER to equal ONE QUART.

Blend again.

Drink it all within 30-60 minutes, and prepare to “BLAST OFF!”

Just saying–start with the weaker formula if you’re a little tender-stomached, like me! This stuff is STRONG! I can feel it going down, and I honestly have to take it slowly when I drink it, or I get a different kind of a BLAST OFF! Right up and out!


If I’m super sick, even though I know I could benefit from the whole quart at once, I keep the jar by my bed and work on sipping it throughout the day.
