I remember having the flu. I was weak lying in bed. A Swiss friend made me some soup. It was the most fresh soup I had ever tasted. It helped me feel better. I wanted to get her recipe. I call this soup “Healing soup.”
She said it was quite simple. Onions, carrots, celery, leek and parsnips chopped and fried in a big saucepan. A stock cube of Knorr is added in water to the mix and left to simmer for a while till the vegetables are soft. That didn’t sound too complicated. The ingredients weren’t expensive either. After that I made this soup regularly for my family, especially if anyone wasn’t feeling well. They all loved it too.
When I was suffering from cancer and undergoing chemo-radiotherapy I wanted someone to make me the healing soup. I imagined the smell and greeness of the fresh vegetables. I grew leeks, celery and parsley in my herb garden. I often used them. My son made me the soup.
I read that some people with cancer believe their diet is important. If one has cancer the ph of his body fluids are usually acidic. In a healthy person the ph is over 5 on a scale of 0 to 10. Under 5 is acidic. One’s immune system fights infections and keeps one’s body healthy and works well in ph over 5. If one wants to help the immune system operate better, one should eat food that will boost the ph value. All the ingredients in the healing soup have a high ph value. That is why I felt better after having it. Continuing on a diet of foods that are alkaline can strengthen the body to fight the cancer, I believe.
Recently when I was in Slovakia, someone told me about a dream he had. In the dream he saw a lady making soup. She prepared vegetables and went on to make a soup. The vegetables were the same as the ones I used. So the dream was showing him that this food is good to eat.
In a dream I had, I was mixing a stew. It was made from meat and vegetables. I saw an extra ingredient in the soup. It looked like yellow strands through the mix. A voice said to me in my dream “The extra ingredient is stands of love you have put in as you prepare the stew.” I believe God is interested in what we eat and he can show us what is good for us.
I believe a healthy diet helped keep my children from being sick. I did not use sugar, fizzy drinks, sweet goods or processed foods. I made soups, stews, homemade wheaten bread often. Love also kept them healthy.

We’re eating a lot more vegetables lately & trying to eat organically. We’ve started a garden too! If we can’t afford the purity of organic all the time, I’m trusting that our prayers over our food will keep us safe from the pesticides etc. (Protest Marches against Monsanto & GM foods, worldwide Saturday 23rd May) I read half of this your blog before I went to sleep last night & ended up dreaming about vegetables & being distressed that they weren’t organic!! xxoo
