I like bitter tastes, and happen to really like the taste of golden seal--when it starts to not taste good to me, is when I know it's done its work (usually about two weeks or less, if I ever need it. Actually, since four water fasts,
(29, 6, 12, 26) I never get sick. Maybe sniffles for a day...)
I take golden seal powder, bought in bulk, (get it at my local health food store--you can find it online too)and make an infusion: boil water, pour it over, cover (a quart
jar works well, about a T. golden seal, if you can afford it! and let cool, and steep. Then refridgerate. Take by the shot glass. No "brands".
The cinnamon makes a delicious slightly sweet water too,
after a stick is steeped all day. I just keep using the same cup, and reusing the tea bag. (Or you can use leaves in a pot)It's kind of amazing for blood Sugar
Then it chew up the stick, like a mouse gnawing on a heavenly twig.
By "after exams" I just meant, when you have more space/time...it's a bit of work cutting and grating all that stuff to make the Master tonic.(I have stuff that is more than a year old and it seems to get better--Just made a new jar, because my son took a lot. We don't like it strained, the texture is like a soupy applesauce, and it's really good. I think it's *truly* a cancer "cure"-- >>(quotes because cancer comes and goes--we all have cells in us, and it doesn't always develop into anything serious) and, lots of good alkalizing minerals.
Can't help you with the breath--it never got bad for me.
But here's something for the outside; dry-brushing the skin (it's an old European tradition) before a bath or shower. This is wonderful for moving the lymph, and helping with the whole cleansing process. There is actually more lymph than blood, and the bristles really stimulate the largest organ: the skin. Good to do as a regular practise.
Enjoy. Don't get caught in the craziness of the rat race.
