Homemade Vegetable Broth Recipe

 Based on the teachings of the wonderful naturopath Bernard Jensen, DC (see current ongoing lecture on Bernard Jensen’s teachings Part 1 and Part 2), I wanted to emphasize the usefulness of his recommendation to drink a cup or two of homemade “broth" every day.  He recommends that the broths only be made from organic vegetables and their stock (no salt). The broth can be taken only as the liquid from cooked vegetables below, it can be the liquid and the vegetables taken as a soup, or the vegetables and liquid can be liquified in the blender and taken as a puree. All of these forms are alkalinizing (see earlier lecture on the importance of maintaining an alkaline diet and body), packed with minerals (the building blocks and important cofactors in all of the body’s biochemical reactions), full of the best fiber possible (plant fiber) and low in calories.  It is perfectly fine to go on a complete or partial cleansing diet on this food --- for a couple of meals a day or for a full week to ten days eating only this vegetable combination or the puree.  This regime is an excellent basis for a variety of cleansing diets.

 

I want to emphasize here the importance of minerals, and plant based minerals (activated by the sun via photosynthesis in the plant), in health and healing. Minerals are the unsung heroes of the structure and function of the body’s organs and skeleton.  Almost every biochemical reaction in metabolism and organ function requires a mineral to enable the reaction to occur.
