Healing Vegetable Soup—Bieler’s Broth
I learned about this broth form the famous healer Elizabeth Poole from Los Angeles. She felt that whenever a person was going through a healing crisis they needed to take a day off and eat bieler’s broth all day long. She also felt that if a person was recovering from an illness or after a big eating frenzy they needed to cleanse their body with this broth.
My suggestion is to take a day off and just eat this soup throughout the day and in between eating this sleep, take walks and breath.
1 pound string beans, ends snipped
6 medium zucchini (green), ends cut off
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 bunches parsley (cut stems)
Several sprigs of tarragon or thyme, tied together
1 quart filtered water
Put all ingredients in a large pot, add water. Note: the water will not cover the vegetables but the vegetables will boil down and add more liquid. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for about half an hour. Take out the tarragon/thyme, pour into a blender, and puree everything into a thick soup (it will be the thickness of split pea soup). Or you can choose to use a hand-held-blender.
