Cold & Flu Season

Well, we are fighting colds here at our home, so I am making Beef & Cabbage soup for supper. 

I use my homemade beef stock, 16 – 24 cubes,  add ground beef, about 10 garlic bulbs (crushed), half a head of cabbage, 4 carrots cut up and 2 cups of water, season with celtic sea salt and your Kelp Sea Seasonings and simmer all afternoon!   The beef stock has wonderful healing properties as I’ve stated before in my beef broth post. ..Beef & Broccoli Soup

Garlic is touted to possess several antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties, which can be beneficial in preventing and treating colds.

And Cabbage…The health benefits found in cabbage work to enhance the body’s ability to ward off sickness and prevent disease. Because of its nutrient content, cabbage has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. The anti-inflammatory properties help in the treatment of digestive problems, such as gastritis, heartburn and peptic ulcers. Cabbage’s anti-bacterial properties work inside the body’s cell processes and aid in detoxifying the body’s major systems. These same properties help to boost the immune system, which increases the body’s resistance to invading bacteria and viruses.
