Dr. Ama’s Favorite Salad Dressing Recipe (and mine as well)

“The ‘Jenzer dressing’ or ‘Mrs. Jenzer’s salad dressing’ has been going on green salads in my home since before I was born.  We literally had this dressing or a version of this salad dressing every day at my house with our dinner greens. It was tradition, in my Swiss family to always have a salad at the end of every dinner.”

– Dr. Ama

Salad Dressing
1/8th cup organic mustard
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup avocado oil or olive oil
Herbamare to taste (optional) — This is a game changer!

Mix together in a glass jar and store in fridge for up to 2 weeks although it will be gone before that! 

If you’ve never tried Herbamare seasoning, it truly makes everything taste better and is a great substitute for salt.

Broccoli Sprouts

Broccoli sprouts are loaded with Sulforaphane, which has been shown in vitro studies to have anticancer effects against PROSTATE, BREAST, and BLADDER cancers. It also protects the skin from UV radiation.

Broccoli sprouts have also been found to help reduce Helicobacter pylori induced gastritis, PROTECT against oxidative stress-induced upper airway disease and against oxidative DNA damage.

Recipes for Health – Acute Immunity Mixer and Wet Sock Treatment

When cold or flu symptoms try to get you down, strike back with the following recipes for health.

I’ve used these simple at-home remedies for years with great success and I believe they can help keep you and your family healthy.

Acute Immunity Mixer
1 teaspoon shredded Raw ginger
1 lemon (preferably organic)
1-2 cloves of garlic (depends on size of cloves)
1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon of honey (preferably Manukabut at least Raw)

Blend mixture. Drink 2-3x per day! If the concoction is too intense, you can add water.

Wet sock treatment
Supplies: 
1 pair of cotton socks
1 pair of thick wool socks
2 sets of sweats or pajamas

Directions:
1. Soak a pair of cotton socks in water, wring out and place in freezer.
2. Drink a concentrated ginger tea. Take a hot bath for 5-10 minutes.
3. Dry off.
4. Place ice-cold socks on feet. Then cover with thick wool socks. Put on the first set of pajamas. Go directly to bed. Place the second set of pajamas next to the bed. Avoid getting chilled.
5. Wear the socks overnight. During the night, you may wake up drenched in sweat. If so, change into the dry pajamas, but leave on the socks. You will find that the wet cotton socks will be dry in the morning.
