This is my take on Dr. Henry Bieler’s famous broth and the traditional potassium broth. This tonic is wonderful for restoring acid/alkaline balance and sodium/potassium balance to organs and glands. It is also wonderful for those under stress or suffering from stress-related conditions (such as holidays spent with Aunt Martha badgering you about getting married), and is an amazing rejuvenator when recovering from illness.
“When toxemia is present, without symptoms of a specific disease, but with liver impairment, a short fast on vegetable broth or soup is a natural and efficient treatment that will relieve the liver of its congestion and restore it to normal function.”
