This is a recipe for an ancient ayurveda medicinal wine. It has low to no alcohol content and is great for getting your digestive fires heated up so you can digest your foods better while assimilating the most from the nutrient content.
750 ml Red Wine
1/2 tsp of each of the following:
- ginger powder
- black pepper
- 1/2 cinnamon stick
- something rusty (yes, seriously!)
Add above ingredients to wine in bottle. Close and leave horizontal for 10 days. Turn bottle 45 degrees once a day. On day 10 sieve the wine into a pot to boil. Pour the whole bottle of wine through a sieve using a heavy paper towel or something similar to remove all the fine particles. The wine will keep indefinitely even after opening.
Medicinal wine has been used by many cultures throughout history to heal dis-ease. It is good for increasing agni (digestive fire). It is excellent for digestion. It also cleans the lungs and is good for colds and flu. It decreases mucous and helps bowl movement.
This medicinal wine will increase pitta. Take 1x before lunch for the digestive stimulation. Take 2x a day for lungs. You can take this wine daily for up to 3 months. After 3 months your body is used to it so the effect is diminished.
All medicinal recipes can have positive and negative effects because that which brings balance can also bring imbalance. Negative effects can be constipation due to the dryness of the wine formula.
