Spirits, intoxicants, hooch, liqueur, alcohol, beer, wine, cocktails and “the drink”. There are so many names. Its uses are just as varied but if you believe it is only around to give you an altered emotional and mental state, you are missing its higher power. For most of recorded human history the liquid from fermented fruits, vegetables, grains and honey have served as a starting point for traditional healing remedies. I have seen clients use beer for kidney stones or decrease edema. Wine is a go to for relaxing nerves or grief. Amaro is an Italian digestive., settles the stomach. Peppermint Schnapps clears the sinuses. What does a Pina Colada or Margarita provide? Grow your own coconuts, pineapples, lemons, limes, and much more. Combine alcohol, herbs, and creativity to see what personal remedy is your favorite. Yes, there will be a little tasting.
