Healing Broth

Healing Broth

Healing Broth is a powerful mineral-rich liquid that carries the essence of vitally nutritious vegetables, herbs, and spices in a way that is easy for the body to digest, assimilate, and utilize. You will find this recipe as comforting as it is nourishing. The ingredients of this simple recipe help to provide tremendous healing benefits to both the body and soul.

Carrots help to lower blood pressure, reduce edema, relax muscles, steady nerves, and balance cognitive function. Onions and garlic have powerful antiviral and antibiotic properties and can help eliminate heavy metals and parasites from the body.

Parsley and shiitake mushrooms contain an excellent bioavailable form of iron which helps to keep your blood strong and prevent anemia and are also rich in zinc which is highly beneficial for treating viral issues and strengthening the immune system. Ginger and turmeric root help reduce inflammation and improve liver function. They also aid in keeping your hair growing strong and supporting your skin to be healthy and vibrant.

This incredibly healing broth can be made in advance and stored in the fridge. Simply heat up only what you need and place in a thermal mug for warm sipping throughout the day. This broth has the miraculous ability to be both healing, cleansing, and nourishing all at the same time and is a wonderful addition to any health regime.

Healing Broth FAQ

Is it best to enjoy Healing Broth as a strained broth or with the vegetables in it?

This recipe provides great healing benefits when consumed as a broth or with the vegetables still in it. However, for the greatest healing benefits, it is best consumed as a strained broth without the whole vegetables. You can enjoy the vegetables at another time of day if you choose to consume it as a broth. If you keep the vegetables in, you will still receive many healing benefits from this recipe.

How much Healing Broth should I consume?

You can enjoy as much Healing Broth as you wish. A good amount is about one to two cups per day or as often as possible.

Is the Healing Broth helpful if I have a cold or flu?

Yes, the strained Healing Broth (without the whole vegetables) is an ideal recipe to sip on when you have a cold or flu. You can drink plenty of this strained broth, along with fresh fruit and vegetable juices, to help you recover.

Can I add other ingredients to the Healing Broth?

You can add other vegetables, herbs and sea vegetables of your choice, such as potatoes, winter squashes, pumpkin, burdock root, cilantro, sage, oregano, thyme, cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus, dulse, kelp, arame, wakame, and so on. It is best to avoid adding store bought vegetable broth, stock cubes, animal bones or protein, salt, or other flavorings that aren’t pure vegetables, herbs, seaweeds, and spices.

Can I use dried ginger and turmeric instead of fresh?

Yes, you can use half a teaspoon of both dried ginger and dried turmeric if you can’t use fresh. However, there are more healing benefits to the fresh roots, so it’s best to use fresh versus dried whenever possible.

Can I leave out the mushrooms?

Yes, you can leave out the mushrooms or choose another mushroom you enjoy to replace the shiitake mushrooms.

Can I leave out the onions?

Yes, you can. You can also try a different kind of onion that you prefer if you wish, like green onions/scallions, leeks, or white onions. You can also increase the garlic in the recipe instead of using onion if you like garlic.

Do I need to peel the ginger and turmeric?

No, it’s not necessary to peel them. It’s your choice. Just be sure to wash them well if you don’t peel them.

Do the ingredients need to be organic?

Organic ingredients are ideal but you can also use conventional. Scrub the ingredients well if using conventional.

Can I put vegetable juice pulp in my broth?

Yes, you can. You can strain the pulp out with the rest of the vegetables when the broth is ready and drink only the liquid for maximum benefits.

Can I blend the broth with the vegetables to make a soup?

Yes, if you are not having the broth strained, you can blend the soup so it’s smooth or have it with the vegetables whole.

How long does the broth last in the fridge?

It will keep for about five to seven days in the fridge.

Can I freeze the broth?

Yes, you can make a large batch of the broth and freeze it for later use.

What time of day is best to have the broth?

Just like a herbal tea, you can enjoy the strained broth any time of day.

I see you have different Healing Broth recipes in your books Thyroid Healing and Liver Rescue? Which is best for me to consume?

This recipe plus both my Liver Rescue Broth and Thyroid Healing Broth are all deeply healing and nutritious recipes. They each have unique qualities that make them special. You can include them all and rotate them, or you can pick the one that calls to you and enjoy that. You can also pick which one to focus on based on your symptoms and conditions. The recipe here is a good overall Healing Broth. The Liver Rescue Broth and Thyroid Healing Broth are also amazing overall healing broths, but each has ingredients that also tailor it for the health issues laid out in each respective book. It would be helpful to read both Thyroid Healing and Liver Rescue.
