Hippocrates Soup


This soup has been touted by health gurus to be helpful in boosting immunity and flushing out the kidneys! It is used as part of the Gerson Therapy, which seeks to treat disease with a strict natural and organic diet. The Gerson therapy was named after Dr. Max B. Gerson (1881-1959), who first used it to treat his migraine headaches and tuberculosis (TB). It was later used in treatment for cancer and many other diseases.

Ingredients (Use organic ingredients where possible):

1 medium celery knob or 3-4 stalks of celery
1 medium parsley root – if available
Garlic as desired
2 small leeks or 1 large onion
1 ½ pounds tomatoes or more
2 medium onions
1 pound of potatoes
Parsley to taste

1. Wash all the vegetables thoroughly but do not peel. Cut in small cubes.

2. Add just enough filtered water to cover the cut vegetables in non-aluminum based pot.

3. Cook all the ingredients under low heat for 1.5-2hours in firmly
covered pot.

4. Remove from heat and run the soup through a food processor or blender in batches.

5. Blend still warm ingredients thoroughly till soup is thick and creamy. Only blend the soup while its warm, otherwise the soup will form a sticky and starchy texture when cooled.

6. Add crushed garlic before serving.

7. Allow soup to cool before storing in refrigerator.
