We would like to share an ancient health recipe offered recently by Korean born Supreme Master Dae Poep Sa Nim to over 40 Yun Hwa Dharma centres located around the world for these difficult times. The main ingredient in the recipe, white Asian radish, can be purchased from many large grocery stores.

“This ancient recipe is good for coughing and uncomfortable chest problems. This is a great remedy for sore throat and to prevent viruses. It also enhances the immune system.

The name of this recipe is Honey Daikon and is comprised of white Asian radish in squares and placed in a glass jar. When the jar is full put a couple of teaspoons of honey and refrigerate it. Then, about 12 hours later, water can be seen coming out of the radish. This is similar to an H2O molecule, where hydrogen and oxygen bond together to form water.

Then drink a couple of teaspoons of that water and chew a couple of pieces of the radish. Those of you who are allergic to honey can just chew a couple of pieces of the radish. This tastes good and will relive chest problems as well as other difficulties in the body.

Also, any left-over radish should be put in soup or sautéed, and used as a sauce. This will benefit and help you for not only the cold viruses but all sorts of other viruses too”.

May you be well and happy.
