Health Healing Broth

What you might ask makes this a healing broth recipe. If the broth is made with mostly vegetables and herbs it can be used to balance the pH or acid/alkalinity of your blood. This is the genesis of healing. Your excellent health depends on this hydrogen ion or pH balance. Remember pH measurements from high school? What they neglected to tell you is that it is a major body fluid measure of how healthy you are and how resistant you will be to serious illness.
I am not even going to write this healthy healing soup in recipe form least you start thinking of cooking and go into cooking is hard to do. Here it is…
For this healthy eating broth you will need to shop for:
4 Carrots unpeeled, 4 stalks of celery, green leafy vegetables like Kale, Mustard and collards, 2 unpeeled Onions and or Leeks, I pod of unpeeled garlic, ½ bunch Parsley, 2 Red potatoes, 1 Sweet potato, 1 8-inch strip of Dried Kombu sea weed, 2 Bay leaves, a few Baby Bokchoy, a few Black peppercorns, a few Allspice berries and or Juniper berries and a large piece of Ginger about 3 inches.
Use a large stock pot about 12 quarts filled with water to about 2 inches below the rim.
Rinse all the vegetables; add about two or three large handfuls of all the green vegetables, add spices and other ingredients to the water, cover and bring to a boil.
Then remove the lid, decrease the heat to low and simmer for about 2 hours. Be sure to set a timer for every hour least you forget about the simmering pot. At this time, add more water if there is evaporation and the vegetables are above the water. Taste for the essence of the vegetables... Add one tablespoon of salt if desired. Remove from burner. Cool, strain in containers and refrigerate. You should have about 6-7quarts. Use it to make healing soup recipes or just heat and drink it instead of other soft sugary drinks that make your body acid and can lead to detrimental illness like cancer and diabetes. Expect to slow your aging, and feel great!

The cancer fighter in fresh food .

June is Fruits and Vegetables month. Paying homage to this fact can get you moving in a health wise direction of never having to fight cancer.

A major gift of fruits and vegetables is that they effortlessly help to keep the Hydrogen Ion Concentration (pH) of the blood in its normal range of pH 7.4. The pH range is measured from 1 – 14 with pH 1 being very acidic with foods like coffee and coke between 1 – 4 and pH 14 being very alkaline.
This simple pH monitor plays an important role in your overall health. And, it is mostly over looked as a measure of great health by the medical industry… Also fresh food as a cancer fighter is not usually considered by medical professionals.

Think about this, people with disease from fungal infections, acid reflux to cancer usually have acid blood with pH below 7. Plus, doctors don’t use blood pH as a measure of good health, and most medications contribute to blood acidity creating an unhealthy cellular environment...

I spent 7 years of my life of doing cancer research while being intimate with the needs of human cell. This is how I came to appreciate the importance of blood Hydrogen Ion (pH). Human cells will absolute not thrive in an acidic pH environment in your body and this criteria can lead to a host of ailments and diseases like cancer. Are you beginning to see where this ball in entirely in your court?

Sugar contributes to blood acidity. So consider this… In stead of cherry pie choose fresh cherries. For the cost of a pie your will get so much more in nutritional value, without even turning on your oven.

Eating Fresh food is about following the seasonal divine plan. For example thinly sliced apples can be eaten instead of white bread at breakfast. They are both white, but you get more crunch, chew time, fiber, minerals and vitamins from the apple than the white bread and while white bread will contribute to blood acidity, an apple will not.

If you are really enthusiastic, check out cookbooks like Eat Yourself Younger Effortlessly and it will steer you on a clear path to realizing the dream of happy, healthy aging.

Expect to get compliments about how good you look, and envision how well you will be, as you age. This idea is simple, scientific and secure but most of all it is the truth and can contribute to you having an awesome health experience as you age.
