This soup is a healing soup, full of the force of its healing ingredients. If you’re not a ginger fan, skip this recipe because the ginger flavor is strong. You can add more garlic to increase the garlic flavor and effects (I would have used more when I made the recipe, but I had run out of garlic.)
This soup is especially helpful when healing from viral and prion infections. (I never heard of a prion infection until I spiritually received the instructions for this soup. A prion infection is not well understood, but it can be treated. Fortunately, prion infections are rare.)
This soup is great to eat at any time, especially when you’re feeling fine, because it’s yummy and nutritious!
