Honey Elixir containing Ginger, Garlic, Lemon, Apple Cider Vinegar and Honey may Help Reverse Clogged Arteries

Updated on August 2, 2016


Anyone experiencing clogged arteries poses to a high risk of developing heart attack or stroke. Physicians get used to prescribing statin, a drug said to shrink plaques that cause atherosclerosis if taken more than a year.

The same drugs are claimed to help regulate blood cholesterol. Arteries are blood vessel conveying oxygenated blood from the heart to all parts of the body. As believed by many mainstream scientists, allopathic physicians and those supporting their belief, including mass media and the general public, high cholesterol is the culprit for atherosclerotic plaque build-up.

How arteries become clogged

The theory has not escaped much criticism from critics who believe that other hypotheses are worthwhile to consider when it comes to the plaque formation, including Calcium influx into endothelial and intimal cells cause plaque build-up.

A hypothesis by Dr. Fred Kummerow, for example, suggests that sphingomyelin interaction with Calcium ions cause the outer layer of arterial cells covered with much Calcium that leads to plaque build-up. No matter what the exact cause of the plaque build-up, alternative medicine practitioners and some laymen always come up with suggestions, normally simple ways of reducing the plaque.

Here is a honey elixir containing ginger, garlic, lemon and apple cider vinegar that can be used traditionally, believed able to reduce the atherosclerotic plaque. All ingredients have antioxidant and cholesterol lowering properties.

Method of preparation

Blenderize 250 grams ginger in a cup of water, 6 cloves of pre-peeled garlic in a cup of water, and a cup of lemon juice by squeezing 4-5 lemons. Strain both using muslin cloth strainer and keep the filtrate. Next, prepare a cup of lemon juice by squeezing 5 lemons.

Combine all ingredients with a cup of organic apple cider vinegar in a heat-resistant glass pot, and simmer until the liquid has reduced to about three cups. Set aside and let the concoction cool down to room temperature.

Then, combine the concoction with three cups of honey, preferably raw honey, which is unheated and minimally processed. Pour the honey elixir into a dark glass jar with lid. Refrigerate it to ensure long shelf life.

Take a spoonful of the elixir first thing in the morning before breakfast. A continuous intake would expect to gradually harmonize lipid profile according to one’s age, the older the person the longer it would take. for instance, a 40-year-old man would take 40 months, and so on.

Apart from continuously taking the elixir, lifestyle changes are also vital. A healthy diet, including avoiding overeating, avoiding intake of heavily processed carbohydrates, sugary foods/drinks, and taking foods high in antioxidants is a primary element of a healthy lifestyle. Other elements, including getting enough sleep, quitting smoking, getting sufficient sun exposure, managing stress diligently, and exercising moderately are also worthwhile to observe.
