Here are some ‘healing’ soups that I’ve found to help you wade through the muck of illness:

A gal at my church had this recipe to share:



2-3 cloves of Garlic

1 large Onion

1-2 Tbs. fresh grated Ginger

2 Tbs. fresh Cilantro

3 Tbs. yeast-free instant Vegetable Broth

2=3 Quarts of Water

Recommended for You

1 Cucumber (optional: Carrots, Cabbage, Celery)

“Real Salts” to taste

Chop and crush garlic cloves into small diced pieces and lightly steam-fry. Set aside. Put whole onion in water in a deep pan, simmer until onion is transparent (approx. 1 hour). Add garlic and vegetable broth. Slice cucumber (and optional veggies) and add to soup. Simmer 10-15 minutes. Add fresh ginger and cilantro and Real salt to taste. This soup is especially soothing when tired, stressed, or sick with cold or flu, and is very anti-fungal.
