Most of us have memories of Chicken Noodle Soup in one form or another, often associated with feeling ill. There is something warm and comforting about nice rich broth, tender chunks of chicken and slurpy noodles. There are also sound nutritional benefits to such broths, particularly after a tummy upset and/or fever. Salts, electrolytes and easily digested proteins are just a few. My version includes sesame oil, garlic, ginger, lemongrass and basil, all used as anti-microbials to fight the effects of influenza, colds, fever, stomach upsets and as a general tonic in many cultures. This makes for very tasty medicine indeed.

If you gurgle like a hookah when you breathe, a cough elixir won’t help, you need a Doctor .. NOW!  If you have a fever as well, go to a hospital .. NOW!! If you are diabetic, or suspect you might be, consult a physician. Alrighty, now we have sorted that out, let’s continue to what I can do to help ..

The roots and leaves of Comfrey (Symphytum officinale) contain allantoin, rosmarinic acid, and tannins. These have been shown to promote new growth of skin cells, reduce inflammation and keep skin healthy. Historically, a cream or paste made from the plant has been used to treat bone fractures, soft tissue damage and bruising. Due to the presence of pyrrolizidine alkaloids however, no part of the plant should be taken internally. Please see the precautions listed below.
