Feeling a Cold or Flu Coming On?

Try this.

I’ve nipped countless colds in the bud doing this.

Auntie Bean’s “Kill It Before It Comes” Regimen miso-happy-broth

This practice comes from Jennifer Adler, MS, CN who is adjunct faculty at Bastyr University and owner of Passionate Nutrition .  Jennifer teaches the Therapeutic Whole Foods Cooking courses at Bastyr which are wildly popular (SRO).

  • If you feel a cold, flu or illness coming on, prepare Miso Happy Broth or STRONG Ginger Tea. The ginger warms the body and helps fight infection, the miso offers probiotics which can kickstart the immune system.
  • Put a warm hat on and get in a hot bath.
  • Drink the soup/tea while taking the bath.
  • Get out, put on sweat pants and sweatshirt and get under the covers in bed.  Keep your hat on.
  • Take a long sweaty nap.

This regime helps the body create the fever it needs to burn out the illness before it takes hold.
