Take a full Lemon, cut in half, get Grandma's hand juicer(the one with the ribbed cone with trough to catch the pulp and juice) pick seeds out. Pour both halves into large ( and l emphasize large) coffee cup!
Put in a tablespoon and a half of Apple Cider Vinegar!
Put in a tablespoon and a half of Honey!
Now have your Water, boiling hard (old-fashion way) on stove or electric kettle
(no nukers, micro-waves) as fast as possible, transfer boiling water to cup, bring up to 1/4in from top!
Immediately hit the liquid with 3 to 4 shakes of Cayenne Pepper on top!
You'll see the reaction when you hit it with the Cayenne, make sure you get all the cayenne into the liquid and off the rim of the cup or it will raise hell with a person's lips ! Start inhaling fumes as you stir, your sinuses will tell you it's working right off the bat!
Drink as hot as possible and when you get down to the bottom, you'll see the pulp and Cayenne laying there. Now that Cayenne has lost it's heat in the liquid, Drink it All down ! Between 4to 5 doses ought to surffice ! In normal cases2!
Make sure you have something on your ol belly ! 1(Very Acidic)
Best scenario, Take just before nights sleep and another first thing in the morning ! Also take as quick as you feel something coming on, try not to let it set up house ! GOD Bless, keep your powder dry, and your heads up ! Twogood
Well first off I should probably introduce myself! My name is Mark Twogood. I was born in the Bitterroot Mountains of Montana in a little town by the name of Hamilton. Now, Hamilton is just where I was born as it happened to be the closest hospital. Where I lived and grew up was about 55 miles South of Hamilton on a ranch called French Basin. There was a little gas station, Post Office and Store all in one that was in an area named Sula. It was another 15 or 16 miles from French Basin to Sula. What I'm tryin to tell Ya is amenities were few and far between! We didn't run to town for every bump and scrape. If I remember correctly it had to be pretty much life threatening to involve a trip to town. Everything else, we fixed it on the ranch! That is how this ol drink came to my knowledge. It came from my Grandma Gertrude, Nana to me!
Nana was one of the first white women to come into the Nez Perce Indian Nation on the breaks of the Salmon River. Nana made the journey to the area she would call home, over the hill in Idaho, by covered wagon. There they built their ranch and raised a family of Twogoods.
My dad built his ranch in the Bitterroot Mountains in Montana and Grandma would come over the mountains and visit us often. As I remember it, it didn't necessarily have to be summer time either. I remember her coming for Thanksgiving, at Christmas and Birthdays too! This meant she was there in all seasons and inadvertently there was flu's, fevers and down right ugly crud. Whether Nana was there or not, out would come the "Twogood Drink"! In better than 65 years of this ol Cowboy's life, 16 years as a professional Cowboy performing at Major events in cities from New York to San Fran and many others in between before returning after the First World Cup of Rodeo in Australia in 1982, this Drink has never failed!
I have used this drink through 35 years of working in Hollywood on cramped film sets, through the oil boom in North Dakota. Now, if you've ever been on a film set you'll know that you've got 60-80 people all crawling over each other in hot cramped spaces, smoke machines, lights and plenty of Germs! Within hours every person on set can come down with whatever nasty bug has made its way there. This drink got us through SARRS and H1N1 on set and every rotten thing in between.
This drink will ride you out of any storm!
