Hippocrates Soup – A Cupboard Staple

In my cupboards sit staples, onions, potatoes, tomatoes, herbs, spices, garlic, ginger, rice, spaghetti.

Those wonderful miscellaneous ingredients that can suddenly “become” a meal with little more than a dump into a pot.

After watching “Food Matters” and hearing wonderful options for healing one’s self I realized the staples within my kitchen could be adjusted in minor ways and create one the most documented healing soups and that the soup could in itself become the base for other soups and even sauces.

The Hippocrates Soup can be found in many dimensions from “The Gerson Therapy” to “The Herbal Advisor”.  The key to this soup is the benefits that come from fresh and preferably organic vegetables.

Hippocrates original formula was to be put into 1 ½ quarts of water and simmered slowly for 30 minutes:

1 cup chopped or grated carrot
1 cup chopped or grated celery
1 cup chopped leek
1/2 cup chopped parsley

Below I have placed Dr Gerson’s recipe -A Google Search will give you alternative recipes.

About MatchaGT by ShelleRae

Welcome! I am ShelleRae and I am very excited you are here. I joined the Smoothie Essentials team about 5 years ago now. Always health conscious and into prevention versus medication it seemed natural when the opportunity came up to take on the creation of this blog and the Smoothie Essentials blog as well. As mother to three and surrogate to many more I've practiced much of what I write on sometimes with great success and other times with a bit less. My friends and family are my test kitchen and my facts are most often from WebMD - they seem to have a fairly accurate and conservative approach.

Used for centuries in Japanese tea ceremonies, Matcha provides a powerful pick-me-up plus antioxidants and other health benefits to keep the body, mind and spirit in perfect balance.
