Infection Fighting Lemon Garlic Drink
Contributed by Janet H, Ivins, Utah

Yield: 1 serving


1 lemon
1-2 garlic buds
2 c water
1 tbsp sweetener, optional


Using a peeler take off only the yellow part of the rind of the lemon, leaving the white part with it's Vitamin C complex.  Cut lemon in half with the seeds and throw in the blender.  Put yellow lemon peelings in a ziploc bag in the freezer (use one inch when you make a fruit smoothie for a nice lemon taste).  Throw in garlic and water and blend well.  The strong lemon and garlic flavors mellow each other out for an easily drinkable therapeutic treat.

I had an abscess and prayed about what I could do to eliminate it - this drink recipe came into my mind and it worked within a day to reduce the swelling.  For an even more powerful healing experience, take 1/2 tsp of cayenne and 1/3 cup water, mix and drink quickly before the lemon garlic drink.
