Ok, last weekend I got the cold that is going around. My Papa used to make this strong hot drink with tabasco sauce and stuff...one cup and you were usually over your cold in 24 hours. (Not joking.) Well, I just happen to be reading about the MC and since I had all the ingredients thought I would give it a try. (during my cold :o I know...probably not the smartest time to start a cleanse) Anywho...I couldn't stick with the cleanse, but I did end up having three glasses of the lemonade the first morning...the next day...my cold was almost gone! :D I started drinking it every morning (last three days) and found that not only did my cold clear up completely...but I lost three pounds too! My oldest child had been sick for a week with this cold and I gave her a reduced version of the lemonade (not as spicy) and she cleared up too! So, when my youngest child got it...I started her on it as well. She was only sick for 3 days! Amazing stuff that lemon and cayenne pepper! :D Just had to share. The next time you are sick...try some MC lemonade...it really losens the sinus and reduces a cough!
