Today, My Day - The 23rd
The day today
Today I have had one of those days when the time gets away from you though you do not feel cheated as it feels like you have done or realised a lot but then do not have a lot to show for it!
I finally finished House of Cards - season two. I will no doubt be talking about that below as I have up until now remained silent for fear of some joker telling me what happens.
I have also found something that I had sort of forgotten about that really does help me and is detrimental to my health. I somehow forgot about it!!
Let's get started!
House of Cards
Okay, listen up because I am only going to say this once:
THERE WILL BE SPOILERS BELOW THIS
So I got to the end of season two of House of Cards. I have to say that I am, I was and no doubt will be impressed with the show. I have to say that the second season is better than the first, even thought the first was pretty excellent too.
The thing I like is the topics covered are very real and also they are things that have not really made it into any other show in such a big and honest way.
Okay, so, Frank Underwood has now become President of the US. After cheating and deceiving billionaires and the ex-president. The ex-president doesn't even suspect anything is amiss as Frank took over from him. I have to say that this is possibly the only weak point in the whole story. I cannot see a president being so dopey and blind to the truth.
Rachel is clearly going to be a thorn in Frank's side and will quite possibly be the one who, brings the house of cards down around Frank's head.
The amazing tonic that I forgot
I am not too sure how I forgot about the thing that helped me so much and I am so very glad that I have rediscovered it again.
I have started to drink raw garlic water again. "What!!?"
Raw garlic is very anti fungal and since I have started to drink it again I have really started to feel a lot better and a lot more human.
I think the reason I stopped before was due to me thinking it would be a good idea to swallow the chopped garlic pieces down with the water. This can be fine sometimes but if I recall correctly, I think I felt bad a few times after doing this and stopped. I drank it with lemon juice too and that is okay to do but the garlic is a lot better.
So anyway, yesterday I started having the garlic tonic - only drinking the water the chopped cloves had been sitting in - and I started to feel amazing. I am not planning to stop drinking it again anytime soon either!
It is very simple to prepare as well:
- Cut one clove of garlic into small pieces - do not use a garlic crusher as the tonic is far too potent this way
- Put the chopped garlic into a glass and fill it with water
- Wait for at least 30 minute, stirring now and then.
- Either strain the glass of garlic water into another glass, keeping the pieces separate or use you teeth or lips to keep the pieces from entering your mouth
- Refill your glass and add the garlic pieces back to the glass
You can do this at least 4 or 5 times. Then add another clove and carry on like that.
I generally start the morning with garlic water - soaked from the night before - and have one either side of each meal and sporadically between meals as and when I feel like it!
