The citric acid and ginger are wonderful for eliminating toxins from the body and aiding digestion. Ginger is also a natural antibiotic and one of nature’s supreme decongestants. This juice is full of dietary fibre, thanks to the simple apple, which provides vitamins and minerals as well as being good for overall cleansing of the system.

1. Brew tea (if using) or slightly warm base liquid
2. Add sea salt and calcium magnesium (if using).
3. Add juice and mix well.Then cool and store in fridge until ready to use.
As an example, her normal recipe includes 1 quart of tea (brewed with Red Raspberry Leaf, Alfalfa, Nettle and Stevia), ¼ tsp sea salt, ¼ tsp calcium magnesium powder (about 1,000 mg) and ¼ cup grape or apple juice.
