Health tip

Heart attacks can be prevented. We all know that. But not many of us know about this useful tip.

A mate of mine was scheduled to have a by-pass operation and a booking was made for a year after he was diagnosed (thanks to our wonderful government for such fast service).

Then he heard about a simple, natural remedy and decided to try it.

It’s easy to make:


  • 1 x cup squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 x cup garlic juice
  • 1 x cup ginger juice
  • 1 x cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 x cup turmeric (careful….it will stain your juicer and your hands a bright yellow!)

Throw the whole fruit into your juicer, including skins. The lemon rind adds a tasty zest to the drink.

Buy the turmeric from Woolworths. It comes in handy sachets. Pour the powder slowly into a 1/4 cup of cold water, stirring it in to dissolve any lumps. Then add it to the liquid while it is cooking.


Mix all of the above and simmer on low for 1 hour, or until the liquid is reduced to a slightly thick consistency. It will go a dark green/yellow colour, depending on whether you add turmeric.

The turmeric is good for many ailments but especially helpful at breaking up gall stones and other stones.

After simmering for about 1 hour (or until the liquid thickens slightly, add 1 cup of honey, more or less to taste.

Pour the liquid into a glass storage container. Cool, and store the container in the fridge with a lid on. It can smell strongly of garlic so don’t leave the container uncovered.

Drink 1 tablespoon before breakfast each day.

When my mate returned see the doctor to arrange final details for the operation the doctor examined him and found that his veins were cleared and he was in no danger of a heart attack.

I have been taking 2 tablespoons ( I am a big bloke ) for the last 4 years, and my doctor reported that my recent blood test shows I have the cholesterol levels of an 18 year old, and my heart is very healthy.
