Dr. Francis Pottenger MD is most well known as the researcher and author of the groundbreaking studies on cats that demonstrated that critical nutrients in meat and milk are lost through cooking and pasteurization.
What is less well known is that Dr. Pottenger also operated a sanitorium for patients with tuberculosis, asthma, allergies, and other respiratory diseases.
At his hospital, Dr. Pottenger served his convalescing patients liberal servings of liver, butter, cream, and eggs. This is in sharp contrast to the food served in hospitals and nursing homes today which almost exclusively consists of highly processed, sugar filled foods loaded with additives, extenders, and MSG.
Dr. Pottenger knew well how to cure respiratory illness, relying heavily on the Traditional Superfoods as his main remedies.
Unfortunately, folks today typically have no idea how to cure respiratory illness. A trip the doctor’s office yields no help either as a prescription for strong allergy meds or antibiotics is the only solution offered in most cases.
One of Dr. Pottenger’s tonics for respiratory illness was a Liver Cocktail that is beneficial for its stamina and lung building properties in athletes and asthmatics alike.
If you or someone in your family has a cough that won’t go away or some other respiratory illness that is not responding to either conventional or alternative treatments, try this tonic for 3-5 days in a row and watch your health quickly return!
If you are an athlete training for any type of sporting competition, you will find this tonic of incredible stamina building benefit as well!
Pottenger’s Remedy for Respiratory Illness
2 teaspoons raw, grassfed beef, buffalo or lamb liver (frozen for 14 days eliminates risk of parasites)
6 ounces fresh, organic tomato juice
Dash of tabasco sauce or cayenne pepper (sources)
Squeeze of fresh lime juice
1 Tablespoon homemade, liquid whey (powdered whey CANNOT be used as whey is a very delicate protein and cannot be dried or powdered even at low temperatures)
Finely grate the liver and mix well with the remaining ingredients. Drink immediately!
