I am pleased to report that a simple, healthy soup recipe has brought relief to many of my patients and I highly recommend giving this treatment a try. I learned this recipe about 20 years ago when I first did my training with the German homeopaths. The soup has alkaline properties designed to neutralize acid in the body, which is believed to be a culprit in arthritis.
Most recently this soup has brought relief to an 82 year old woman patient. She first consulted with me on March 21, 2011, complaining of arthritic pain in her hips and legs that had worsened over the 2 months prior to her visit. She also had high blood pressure that hovered around 165/89.
Just one week after starting on my prescribed regimen she reported back that most pain was gone from her hips and legs. By continuing to follow the regimen for about 5 months, she found that her blood pressure stablized around an acceptable 113/73. She also managed to lose 10 pounds over that time and felt better overall.
How to Manage your arthritis and blood pressure issues:
It’s amazing how diet strategies can help alleviate chronic conditions. My 82 year old patient had fewer arthritis symptoms and stabilized her blood pressure by adding my simple, healthy soup formula to her routine. Over the years I have also had other patients report better sleep, pain free periods, clear congestion and more energy when this soup regimen is added to their diet.
Here is the “prescription” that worked wonders for my patients:
Have 2 cups of the following mixture 5 days a week:
8 cups of water
1 cup green string beans
1 cup parsley curly or flat
1 cup zucchini
1 cup celery
Optional: dash of miso paste or lemon
Add all ingredients to water and bring to a boil. Lower temperature and simmer for 45 minutes to an hour.
Soup can be refrigerated up to 1 week
