Soups and broths have been a regular feature in cooking since before historical records. In fact, one of the oldest books in Chinese medicine is Dr. Yi Yins Soup Classic.[1] In the West we can look to Hippocrates, the Father of Western medicine. He was fond of recommending barley soup to his patients. What we know is that when a person is ill, they may find it easier to drink a restorative soup than eat a full meal. Soups have been used for many reasons.

As most of you will know, ginger has many healing capabilities and is one of my favourite home remedies.  The purpose of a hot Ginger Compress is to dissolve stagnation, mucus and tension, melt blockages and stimulate circulation and energy flow. This is a wonderful treatment for injuries to the body, especially the back. I use it on clients with scoliosis.

The Macrobiotic Vegan Human Ecology Diet Over the past decade’s nutritional studies have shifted away from whole foods and toward the individual components of food. While that is an interesting study, it has really not informed the debate as to what a healthy diet looks like. What foods do we need in order to get the proper balance of nutrients? It turns out that the answer is not a mystery.

Wakame flakes are so quick and easy to use. They are especially delicious added to miso soup, sautจฆed with onions or served with blanched greens. It also combines especially well with cucumber, spring onions and ginger with a lime juice & miso vinegar dressing.

‘Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’ Nelson Mandela As a child I adored Nelson Mandela. In my decades of teaching, I have used his saying to remind me that when we focus on problems we will have more problems. But, when we focus on possibilities we have more opportunities hence my relenting chant about food and health for humans and non-humans alike. I am in service for a healthy world for all who live here, that’s my mission.

A vegetable broth made from organically grown vegetables can be an excellent source of essential electrolytes. Ionic minerals are the key to maintaining good health. My broth is incredibly nutritious and a health-boosting food that is very easy to make. There is no absolutley no need to use the bones of our animal kingdom for the so-called miracle cure all that humans hanker after. My three 'magic' ingredients in my mineral broth come from plants. Kombu seaweed, dried shiitake mushrooms and dried daikon.

In general, most plants as we all know grow by absorbing nutrients from the soil. Their ability to do this depends on the nature of the soil.   Organic farmers of course know the difference between soil and ‘dirt’ but not to put too fine a point on it, the kids didn’t even believe that the food they eat is grown in ‘dirt’.

The best Enzyme-rich foods are those that are sprouted (seeds and legumes). Both deliver not only ‘top notch’ nutrition but boost our enzyme levels naturally and support our health. Sprouting increases the enzyme content in these foods tremendously.
