Maslo i med
This home remedy has been traditionally used in my country of origin to treat tuberculosis, bronchitis, asthma and other types of respiratory diseases.
In my native language the remedy is called “Maslo i med” and made from bitter wormwood honey and homemade raw butter.
Bitter wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) is a species of Artemisia famous for its medicinal properties. A species native to Montenegro has specific narrow leaves and grows in wild in abundance.
Preparation and Dosage
Mix equal parts of bitter wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) honey and pure, raw, homemade butter from cow’s milk.
One teaspoon should be taken first thing in the morning on empty stomach.
It is made in smaller batches 250gr or less of each of the two ingredients and kept in the fridge.
In absence of Artemisia absinthium honey which can be found only in Montenegro, Manuka honey would be the closest match. Manuka honey is raw, untreated honey from New Zealand also famous for its medicinal properties.
Suppress the appetite by taking the honey/apple cider vinegar syrup before meals.
Mix a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and a teaspoon of pure honey with a dash of cinnamon.
Take three times a day and sip slowly before each main meal.
Apple cider vinegar has acids and enzymes which will speed up the metabolism and process of burning fat in your body rather than storing it. It suppresses the appetite and makes you eat less and lose your weight quickly.
It will make you feel fuller for longer time by reducing the speed that the stomach is emptied.
This syrup with its amazing properties helps to flush out the harmful toxins from the body which also helps to lose the excess weight.
This powerful combination not only helps with weight loss but also strengthens the immune system, treats cellulite, detoxifies the body, helps with cold and coughing, treats viral, bacterial and fungal infections and has many other health benefits.
I find it useful to prepare this syrup in advance by taking a cup of honey and mixing with cup of apple cider vinegar and adding a teaspoon or two of cinnamon.
It does not need to be refrigerated, just keep it at a dark place.
