Hippocrates Healing Broth

Updated: Jul 19

This broth is the perfect remedy if you or a loved have gotten sick or feel like you may be coming down with something.

This is a go-to remedy for colds and the flu.

The vegetables, herbs, and roots in this broth provide a strong dose of vitamins and minerals, plus have anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties.

If you don't have all of the ingredients on hand, just use what you have. I once made a healing broth from just 4 garlic cloves, 1/2 an onion, 2 carrots, celery, cilantro, and ginger powder and it still helped (a lot!) (reduce amount of ginger if using less than the suggested ingredients so that your broth isn't too spicy.)



-4 carrots, chopped

-1 sweet potato or regular potato, cubed

-2 stalks of celery, chopped

-2 onions, sliced

-1 cup parsley or cilantro, chopped

-1 cup shiitake mushrooms fresh or dried (optional)

-2 tomatoes, chopped (optional)

-6-8 cloves of garlic, smashed

-1 inch of fresh ginger root or 1/4 tsp ginger powder

-8 cups of water

optional: red pepper flakes


-Place all the ingredients in a pot and bring to a gentle boil.

-Turn heat to low and simmer for an hour.

-Strain and sip for a healing broth or leave veggies in for a vegetable soup.
