A beautiful healthy healing broth

I am a firm believer in that food is the best medicine. This is a broth from Henry G. Bieler who was a prominent American physician and author who wrote, “Food is Your Best Medicine”. In his book he advocates for the treatment of disease with foods.

This is a gentle way to detox either on it’s own or as a compliment to your juice fast.


  • 4 medium  or two large zucchinis, chopped
  • 3 cups string beans
  • 2 sticks celery
  • 2 bunches of parsley
  • 1 litre filtered water
  • sea salt
  • (optional) ghee


Place water,  chopped zucchini, string beans, ends removed and chopped celery in a stock pot.

Bring to a boil, turn down the temperature and then simmer for approximately 30 minutes or until vegetables are softened but not over cooked.  Pour the mixture into a blender, add some parsley and blend. The liquid will be quite hot so be sure to hold onto the lid.

This batch of broth will create several blender batches. Have some jars or other containers on hand to fill as you blend. To thicken and enhance the broth add ghee.
