Introduction

This is the best thing for your body, if your fighting a flu or cold or the flu. It's loaded with natural vitamins and and minerals which are proven to help flushing out bacteria, toxins and viruses. Make sure all the ingredients are organic and the water is distilled. There's no sense making a broth filled with insecticides, hormons, chlorine and toxins, if your trying to help your body flush such things out.

Ingredients

    3 Oganic raw beets
    4 medium organic raw carrots
    4 cloves organic raw Garlic
    2 large organic raw Onions
    5 stalks organic raw Celery
    3 medium organic raw Potatoes
    1 bunch organic fresh Spinach
    1 organic Jalapeno Pepper
    Dash of ground Cumin
    Dash of Celery Salt
    Dash of ground black pepper

Directions

*Wash all ingredients thoroughly.
*Peel potatoes and carrots, ONLY USE THE PEELS. Store the rest of the peeled vegetables for future use in another recipe, or you can bake them in the oven with some olive oil while the broth is cooking and store to eat when you get better.
*Chop Onions and beets into four quarters each, do not peel beets.
*Peel garlic and use whole.
*Cut bottom ends off spinach and use whole.
*Chop Celery and jalapeno pepper.
*Put all ingredients in a large pot (don't use non-stick cookware) and pour distilled water over them till water is just covering the ingredients. (distilled water is a must!)
*Cover pot well and turn heat on to very low.
*Let sit over lowest heat for 3-4 hours.
*When cooking time is up, strain vegetables and discard them (if you have a compost please dispose of them there.)
*Strain until only broth is left.
*Add cumin, celery salt and black pepper to the broth for taste.

****Drink 2 cups at a time through out the day everyday till it is done or till your cold or flu is gone.
I suggest that you drink lots and lots of distilled water and drink lots and lots of FRESH, not from concentrate fruit juice and avoiding all solid foods. Juice and this potassium broth will provide all the nutrients you need. Solid food takes a lot of energy out of your body because it needs to be digested, assimulated and excreted. This energy which is better used by your body to fight off the bacteria and viruses and cleanse itself.

****** IN REFRENCE TO THE COMMENT MADE BELOW ABOUT DISTILLED WATER******
There are many myths about distilled water that are simply not true and have no facts or research to support them.
Here are two websites that explain these myths and give medical and scientific facts against them:

  • Just a warning- drinking distilled water is very dangerous. It can actually kill you if you drink large or consistant amounts of it. Filtered or spring water is better. - 3/10/07
