Got Nausea? A Swig of Chemo Moonshine Might Do The Trick...
ALL NATURAL NAUSEA REMEDY, we just had to share it!
Chemo Moonshine that may help keep nausea away.
Don’t let the creative name fool you – there is NO ALCOHOL in Chemo Moonshine – and you can store it for up to one week in the fridge OR freeze in ice cube trays for easy access for later.
We all know that chemo-related nausea is not fun and sometimes the anti-nausea meds just don’t do the trick. We are always on the look for natural remedies that can combat nausea (and have a fun twist) and Chemo Moonshine fit the bill.
Barb @ MomOffTrack.com came up with the recipe and fun name as a way to combat nausea during her treatment, and the Chemo Moonshine recipe has now circled the globe helping cancer patients fight nausea. (Thanks for letting us share Barb!) A copy of her original post is below:

Recipe for Chemo Moonshine: A Natural Nausea Remedy
Apple Cider- 1 gallon, non-concentrated
1 cup Manuka honey (as healing properties)
5 Cinnamon Sticks
Whole Cloves, about 2 tablespoons
1-2 inches Fresh Ginger Root (peeled and chopped or sliced thinly)
1 tablespoon Ground Ginger
2-3 Star Anise
I make mine in a 32 qt stock pot with a straining insert. Pour the gallon of juice in the pot. Add the ground ginger, cinnamon sticks, star anise, whole cloves and fresh ginger in the pot with the stove turned to medium heat. Let it boil and then reduce the heat and let it steep covered for about 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and let it continue steeping while covered for another hour.
Add the honey (or agave) and let steep uncovered over low heat for another hour. Strain using the straining insert in the pot. Pour into mason jars using jelly strainers. If you don’t have this you can strain it through a strainer and store it back in the juice bottle with a little left over.
I use the 1/2 gallon mason jars because I think they look great as gifts. You can get them at Walmart or Target stores.
