Cold and Flu season is rapidly approaching, for those of us in the northern hemisphere.
Two weeks ago I sent out an email about an option if you need to sanitize your lungs, but don't have a charred oak keg in your supplies:
My own oak barrel is out on loan to a friend, as her husband's breakthrough-COVID-cough was ongoing for 2 weeks and not getting better (double-vax'd and boosted - It's not even cold-and-flu season yet). My mom was also sick with not-coronavirus. After taking the pictures for that email I took the supplies over to loan to my mother.
Last week at the Prescott Valley Community Market I tried huffing apple brandy from the glass bottle. It's not nearly as potent as the charred oak keg, exactly as my first barrel customer had told me. [After her husband's lungs had mostly recovered, he switched to huffing straight off the bottle. This was good enough to keep from backsliding, but she recognized the bottle was not as effective as the barrel.]
I immediately understood why: the charred wood of the barrels attracts the liquor, thereby dramatically increasing the surface area and accelerating the transformation of liquor into fumes. In a glass bottle, all the liquor immediately falls to the bottom.
The glass bottle system does work, you just have to agitate it aggressively between inhalations to turn the liquid brandy into fumes.
Cellular Excitation is the most important factor in facilitating infection from our modern "super-cold" virus. When cells are excited, they're easy targets for the virus. When cells are stable, they can easily shut down viral replication.
Edgar Cayce mentioned the alkaline-reacting diet as an important factor for being resilient against cold and flu infections. Here's the A.R.E.'s report on the common cold (click on the box to load the page):
I think having adequate amounts of potassium and magnesium in the diet are important factors for reducing 'cellular excitation', thereby reducing one's vulnerability to colds. Sweet potatoes are a fantastic source of potassium. Orange juice and milk are also good sources for potassium.
Something interesting about sweet potatoes is that you can eat the leaves. They're sort of like spinach. This is in sharp contrast to regular potatoes, whose leaves are poisonous due to high concentrations of solanine (a glycoalkaloid poison).
An inexpensive magnesium supplement can be made with carbonated water and milk of magnesia (the laxative - I use the version sold at Fry's Food [aka Kroger's], as it doesn't have any additives). Here's the directions: https://www.afibbers.org/Wallerwater.pdf

What do you do to be resilient through cold and flu season?
p.s. I have two kegs in stock - these do not have the spigot: https://radialappliance.teslabox.com/product/charred-oak-keg-3-liter/
