What is Bieler’s Broth?

Today I like to share an incredibly healing and very easily digestable soup recipe with you called ‘Bieler’s Broth’. This very nourishing and healing ‘Bieler’s broth’ is superb for cleansing the liver whilst also being very soothing for the kidneys.

First of all it’s name comes from a doctor named Bieler who inveted the soup in order to restore an acid-alkaline and sodium-potassium balance to organs and glands. Especially the sodium-loving adrenal glands which often suffer severly under stress.

The soup is vegan and all vegetable-based. It is not a culinary soup, so it can be a little bland for people who are used to flavourful spicings of their soups. However, it’s tasty enough that you can eat it a few days in a row and thus is super suitable for cleanses and detox diets.

The broth is also very supportive for liver function — remember that the liver is our detoxifying organ.

Bieler’s broth contains zucchini and string beans, which are rich sources of organic potassium and sodium. The liver uses those elements to clean and revitalize the body. Occasionally, when you’re sick, the best thing to do is not eat and let the body heal. Digestion takes a lot of energy.  Instead, drink Dr. Bieler’s healing broth recipe for energy, weight loss, and cleansing.

Background: Dr. Bieler would take a detailed study of his patients’ endocrine glands. This includes the adrenal glands, pituitary gland and the thyroid gland. Dr. Bieler would then prescribe a limited diet, or even a fast on Bieler’s broth. The vegetables were cooked and easy to digest, full of vitamins and restore such elements as potassium and sodium to our glands. Dr. Bieler was particularly interested in restoring the liver.

What else ?

Dr. Bieler believed that most folks eat excessive amounts of proteins. He said that milk and eggs lose their nutritional value after being pasteurized/cooked, and that meat cooked to temperature above rare becomes hard to digest. According to him, salt is a stimulant providing only a temporary sensation of well-being, and over consumption is detrimental to health. The best way to obtain necessary sodium is from plants (vegetables), not addition of salt. He gave a number of examples of disease-free cultures that do not have access to salt.

Feeling Vata: This soup might be a little light for you, sensitive Vata, as there’s no oils or added fats in this detox recipe. However if you’re on a cleanse and if not eaten for longer periods than 3 days, this soup can work well for you on a detox or cleanse if the overall detox programm is well thought out and stabilising to your system.

Feeling Pitta:  This soup works really well for you, go for it!

Feeling Kapha:  Perfect soup for a kapha cleanse, go for it!

Zinc – Essential Supplement for Immunity

Discover the superpower of zinc and zinc supplements for enhanced well-being, better immunity, healthier skin & nails, improved hair growth and better moods!

This overlooked essential mineral works tirelessly to shield your body against infections by giving a powerful boost to your immune system, all without breaking the bank. Elevate your wellness-routine with a top-notch zinc supplement, a smart move to equip your body with the immune support it craves, especially in our modern-day stressful and often challenging times. This essential mineral is critical to many bodily processes: From normal cell development to protein synthesis, zinc is the true champion, being a necessary key component in over 300 enzymes. Without it, our immune-system literally can not function: for example, many antibodies to fight viruses and bacteria could simply not be produced in our body without enough zinc. Meaning, we will get ill quicker or take longer to recover from illness.

We get our daily zinc intake usually through food. However high caffeine consumption, stress, and our often unhealthy modern day-diets and lifestyle can lead to a zinc deficiency. Zinc supplements can bridge this gap. Adding a quality zinc supplement to your daily routine is thus a smart way to give your body the immune support it needs and to improve your overall well-being, your mood and your skin.
