A Fall season Fire Cider

Fire Cider!

Fire Cider!

Traditionally Fire Cider has been used as a cure-all cold remedy.  It’s ingredients are abundant with anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, immune-boosting, decongestant and digestive properties.  Needless to say, with all those healing abilities, Fire Cider is not for sensitive palates or lily livers.  The heady tonic has a way of making a clean sweep of your digestive system.  When all the ingredients are blended together, the entire concoction steeps for at least 4 weeks, and is then strained into individual bottles.  We have included this tonic is the Fall Wellness Treatment to ensure you have one potent remedy when the seasons cold wind invades your system.  One spoon full, taken each morning, can stimulate your digestion to take hold of any cold ailment to warm your entire being.

Ingredients: garlic, onion, apple cider vinegar, lemon, ginger, turmeric, horseradish, cayenne, jalapeno, star anise, & local honey

Food as Medicine: Salt, Fire & Time + Portland Apothecary

Posted on: October 1st, 2014 by Krissy  | 

I love eating.  If you have spent a few minutes with me, there’s a chance I have already talked about food.  There are few things more satisfying than a real delicious meal.  One that your body gives itself a high five for eating.  The kind that makes your soul warm & your brains nourished.  Eating should be a positive experience that you can share with others, or enjoy simply on your own, taking in each flavor.  The gals from Salt, Fire & Time and Portland Apothecary take the experience of food and herbs to another level: Medicine.  This is the real reason I take time to post recipes & share food related resources as part of your Shiatsu treatment.  Food can be the key to your success in health.  During each season, we will share foods, recipes, blogs, any & all resources to get you in tune with the flavors around you.  Here, we share a blog from Portland Apothecary: 5 Questions with Tressa Yellig from Salt, Fire & Time.
