Tis the Season. No, not that season….We are in Mid Flu Season! Everywhere I look there is someone who’s sick. We have many patients testing positive for the flu at the hospital. A lot of my friends and family are ill with some kind of respiratory achey thing. A lot of sneezy, coughing, snotty, sinus-y, sick people are walking around here.
Thankfully I have not fallen victim and neither have my kids. But you have found yourself waking up with a sore throat and runny nose – you have some sort of virus. Resist the urge to immediately dump yourself with antibiotics. Try my soup first! It works so effectively in boosting your own immune system – especially in the early stages of a cold or flu. Try it even if you are not 100% sure that you have flu or the cold.
4 organic non antibiotic chicken legs
10-20 cloves of raw organic garlic
1 whole white organic onion – chopped
1-2 sprigs of thyme
1 tbsp of olive oil
4-6 cups of filtered water
salt and pepper to taste
Heat olive oil in a stew pot or sauce pan. Sauté chopped onion and garlic until onion is translucent. Add 4-6 cups of water, sprigs of thyme, and 4 raw chicken legs. Boil for 30 minutes. Simmer on medium for 2 more hours. Add more water if you want a more runny soup. Salt & Pepper to taste. Eat/Drink liberally.
I suggest you drink/eat a bowl of this soup 4-5 times a day. You can scoop a 1/4 cup of rice into it if you need a little more calories. It’s important to remember that when you are fighting a cold or flu virus that you avoid sugar. Sugar depresses the immune system, always. It’s as true as the sky is blue, proven over and over.
This soup will help support your own immune system in fighting the cold cure the flu virus and alleviate your symptoms in the meantime. Enjoy this delicious simple soup along with its powerful antiviral and antibiotic properties. This recipe is great for kids who hate traditional medicine and adults who want to avoid pharmaceuticals.
