Ceylon Cinnamon    & Honey formula 

This should be prepared at night before going to bed.

1/2 tsp cinnamon to 1 tsp honey is recommended but can use more or less as long as in the ratio of 1 to 2.

so 1 tsp cinnamon to 2 tsp raw honey is ok too as an example.

  1.  Boil 1 cup of water.
  2.  Pour water over cinnamon and cover and let it steep for 20 mins
  3. Add honey now that it has cooled. Never add honey when it is hot as the heat will destroy the enzymes and other nutrients in the raw honey 
  4.  Drink this directly before going to bed.

Do not add anything else to this recipe. It is only effective on an empty stomach and primarily at night.
