# 6 Honegar

Honegar: As a starting point use,
Equal amounts of Honey and Apple Cider Vinegar.
( Clover is tastier, but I have tried many other flavors )
(DON'T USE WHITE VINEGAR, it is made from non-food things. )
It takes a bit of stirring to get it mixed right. Flavor is a tarty, slightly sweet taste. Honegar helps to balance ones internal electrolytes. Supplies a quick energy boost. Helps one to tolerate heat. Straight Apple Cider Vinegar ( no honey ) " one teaspoonful- or more "before eating will improve most peoples digestion, as nearly all people now suffer from a LACK of digestive juices, this is CONTRARY to what most doctors tell one. Diabetics and hypoglycemics would need to be careful doing this Honegar drink. As I understand it there is the sugar in the blood thing to cope with. I have no problem with it, but use at your own risk . When the heat is trying to nail me ( working outside ) I will take a tablespoonful, straight, and a tablespoonful in a glass of water.
Will often when strenuously involved in the heat, and sweating a river, toss in a pinch, of SEA salt, ( NOT REGULAR SALT ). Finding good Sea Salt is really a problem. Basically a trial and error thing. There is a trick , not many are aware of , is to put a pinch of Sea salt directly on ones tongue first, then drink a glass of water. This allows ones body to treat this glass of water very differently , ( at least its what I read ) than a regular drink of water, allowing one to rehydrate some what more efficiently. Have been doing it for many years, and it hasn't killed me as yet. Yuckle,yuckle. Be Well

I used this mixture whenever I was running or training. It seems to truely energize and not give you that rush with a plop like soda pop. Seems to balance and is a wonderful substitute for pop, coolaide and junk stuff.

Years back I had read that Paul Bragg( past middle age )was challenged to a hike through Death Valley, by a couple of young adults. The young ones loaded up on drinks and food of all kinds, quite a load of stuff. Bragg an adherent of Honegar, took along, only Honegar, and plain water. Bragg was the only one to finish the choosen route. Need I say more.
