I have a secret to confess! Gee! I don’t even remember when I was sick last time! I had a bad flu for the past week and half after I came back from a family wedding! 2 days fever, severe sore throat and cough! Seeing doc was hard than ever! Luckily, I got some healing herbs and healing foods to heal myself! My TCM holistic doc friend Dr. “Sun” was amazing! She also gave me some herbal capsules and mint spray which speeded up my recovery! The herbal capsules were to clear excessive heat, remove toxins, and discharge heat and remove excess dampness! (If you need her help, pls message in comments). I was amazed how confident she was and she was the only one doc who was not afraid to see me! She is also a Tai chi master!
Of course I eat chicken soups almost every day! Now I still do the soups for morning breakfast too! It makes the difference!
Getting flu or cold once a while was not a bad thing. When you overreach too much or for too long a period of time, your body's defenses come down and your immune system cannot fight off all of the bugs. To me, the flu actually gave me a chance to slowdown myself allowing my body to restore! So I consider this as my yearly tune-up! Believe or not, I actually lost 6 lbs excess fat! (I hope to maintain the healthy weight from here! 😓) Part of that reason was that the excess toxins built up and dampness in the body got removed…
The soup was made with chicken broth from rotisserie chicken leftover and shiitake mushrooms! Adding 2-3 cups #homemade #chickenbroth diluted with water, a good egg and a few buckwheat noodles will do the magic! Topped with cilantro and a dash of white ground pepper and ground Sichuan peppercorn which helps remove excess dampness in body!
