No pain in my ears when I woke up this morning! Took another tablespoon when I got up, it definitely does gel, it was like a very well set jello in the jar. lol


My ear was hurting again when I woke up this morning and I took a spoonful and it has eased somewhat now.

Wyrd do you find that this separates after it gels? Yesterday morning mine was very well jelled and I stirred it as I took it, today it's completely seperated with pink/white substance in the bottom half, and a clear liquid with an orange color on the top.

Hi Aloe,

Do you refrigerate it? if so that will make it gel faster, you could always put the gel and liquid back into the blender or you can use an electric mixer to get it back to a liquid state. The jell is mostly composed of fiber and pulp, and the clear liquid is some of the onion and ginger juice. This mix is not as strong as the juiced version and the fiber will slow the absorption, so you should take a little more than you would normally do.

How much do you take presently Aloe ?




Btw juicing doesn't cause the same gelling problem as blending , I know that that doesn't help you now, but it worth knowing for the future :)




I hope this helps

I did refridgerate it, and I've been taking a tablespoon at a time. It didn't seem as strong as I expected it to be, which makes sense now that you mentioned that the blended version isn't as potent.

Thanks for the tips, sounds like I need to invest in a juicer! :)

I did mine with a juicer and it doesn't jell, I have been taking it for two days, but as I have no real ailments that I know of, I can't say if it is doing anything for me yet, I want the side effects (thicker hair and nails) lol. ;)

The wonders of technology! Used to be juicers cost around US$400. Thinking I'd give this recipe a go, I picked one up at Walmart today for $40. (They had a cheaper one but it won't handle vegetables.) I can see where it would be a major pain to do this with a blender & then strain. The juicer was a mess!

First teaspoon only took about a minute to feel - it definitely did a blood rush but y'know, hot flashes aren't something I need help with right now! Still, I'll give it a few days to see if I notice anything further. I'm one of those nasty smokers so any help with those effects is always welcome. Didn't taste bad, either, which is a bonus.

For purposes of action nothing is more useful than narrowness of thought combined with energy of will.

I just made this - and made a HUGE mess and lost half of it due to my blender blowing up on me. It was blending away and all of a sudden stuff started coming out of the bottom of the canister so I picked it up to see if it needed tightened, held it over the sink to tighten it, and before I could touch it the bottom fell off and half my stuff fell into the sink. :censored: I saved about half of it and finished up with the ginger in the food processor and then strained. (I used doubled cheesecloth and it worked OK...) I took a spoonful the first time and felt a nice ginger warmth, waited a bit and then took a tablespoon. Feels good on the stomach, no major changes yet though. I've been having some difficulty with my ears in the mornings so I'm hoping this will help out when I get up tomorrow. :)

Oh, my local supermarket doesn't carry organic produce, so I wasn't able to get organic stuff.

Also forgot to add that my little one came by and took a drink of the juice while I was cleaning up the blender mess, it looked so pinky-orange and pretty she thought it would taste sweet, poor thing got quite a shock. lol


The mental images i was getting here cracked me up !!! Sounds exactly like something that would happen to me lol!

Ha, yeah unfortunately things like this are a common occurance around here. If I can do magic you'd think I could prepare food without making a gawd awful mess.... :rolleyes_witch:

My 'juice' turned so chunky and nasty looking that I've tossed it till I get a juicer so I can do this the right way. Just randomly chewing on a fresh piece of ginger in the meantime...

I've been using it since the weekend. The day I started it my nose started running and I was sneezing a lot - would have thought I was getting a cold excpet that I didn't feel sick and my cigs didn't taste off. Anyway, the running and sneezing kept up (and has finally let off today) and I haven't had any sinus headaches and my head feels very clear. I wonder if that was my sinuses clearing themselves?

Aloe,
you have totally convinced me that I am NOT trying this until I get one too - I am such a messy cook that the blender method is bound to turn out BADDDDDD! :sickwitch:

I mixed up a batch today, using my blender...

I don't have anything I can strain it with, so I have a glass of smoothie, that actually goes down very well... Smells horrendous and tastes worse, but, truth is in the eating as they say...

I need to be a little careful, due to having a stomach issue, but, doesn't seem to affect it too much...

. And I think if one added olive oil and garilc cloves and walnuts it would be a very nice salad dressing!

Although looking at it in that light, Michele makes it sound a lot more attractive. It would certainly be more palatable that way rather than jellyish on a spoon. I'm inclined to think I'd rather try eye of newt (etc) than raw red onion juice on a spoon.

It's not that bad, the grapefruit and ginger help out. And it's definitely easier when it's fresh, before it sits in the fridge all night.

I cannot believe how this forum always delivers an answer within days of a problem/question occurring in my life. A few days ago someone close to me was saying how their 5-year-old is suffering from asthma that seems to only be getting worse and nothing is helping. I have sent her these instructions and asked her to let me know if it helps. Thank you so much for the recipe, I have high hopes for this one.

Hi Absinthe,


Unfortunately the recipe is a synergistic combination of all three ingredients, and as such it will only work when complete. The taste is subjective and really doesn't last very long, but if you want the benefits, I can suggest that you get some natural peppermints (real, not flavored).
