lemon and garlic tonic
This recipe was given to us by a naturopath many years ago. It is claimed to cure almost anything, however, we have seen blood pressure lowered to normal levels in all of the people we have given the recipe to. It is meant to be taken for a 7 weeks course and the course repeated two to three times per year.

We used to use a Champion juicer so the fruit goes in one end and the juice and pith come out separately. The pith is mixed back into the juice, boiled and then strained out and eaten separately.
Now we have an Omniblend the whole lot goes in together and is drunk in one.
If you don’t have a juicer then slice all the ingredients, and blend them after boiling.


blending the garlic and lemon               Bring it to a simmer for 5 minutes


  • 30 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 5 lemons, peeled and seeds removed
  • 1 litre water


Put the lemons and garlic and enough water into the blender and blend until everything is smooth. When done put the mix into saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Allow to cool then bottle.

How to drink

Each morning for three weeks have about 50 ml  (I use a nip glass) of the liquid, wait a week and continue for a further three weeks.

If the pith has been strained out it can be eaten each day, mixed with honey, used to marinate meats, mixed into a salad dressing – be creative.

    Why can’t you take this on a daily basis? I am currently on my first week off after taking for 3 weeks and getting ready for my next 3 weeks.

      Hi Natalie,
      I have no idea why. I just take it until the batch runs out and start again when I get around to making another batch. I have taken it for quite long stretches and start again when we have lots of lemons and I feel I need to. I am about to do another batch because I’ve been away and my body needs it – and the kefir and kombucha.
      These days I mix each bottle with about 1/4 apple cider vinegar, have it in a shot glass and try to get it down without too much contact with my teeth.
      Hope this helps.
