Healing Chicken Soup

Although it’s warmer outside and soup might not sound so appealing, many of us will find ourselves suffering from allergies or the next round of viruses floating around.

I know for me personally I was knocked down hard from allergies this past week and now my son is dealing with his asthma.

So I decided it was time to bring out the big guns.  Bone broth and herbs.

Bone broth is good for healing of the gut, provides natural collagen for our skin, nails, hair and joints.  It also provides gelatin which helps our bones move without grinding together,  it provides a cushion in between our joints.

Bone broth is overall healing for our entire body.

I added Oregano not only for taste but for its health benefits as well. Oregano is great for helping with inflammation and upper respiratory infections.

Thyme is great for treating bronchitis and sore throats.

Sage is amazing for reducing inflammation in our body and boosting the immune system.

Lemon is a great source of Vitamin C and helps to treat throat infections.

While I made this soup geared toward our upper respiratory allergies, it would be helpful with so many other ailments like the flu, digestive problems, or overall just feeling like crap.

So let’s do this and get to feeling better!

Recipe Notes

You can add onion and garlic if you choose.  I didn't not because they don't agree with me.

We paired the soup with a little wild rice.

Many stores are carrying bone broth now, but you can make your own very easily, see recipe here.
