This delicious, soothing and healing chicken soup recipe is simple and easy to do.

Chicken stock is very gentle on the stomach and improves digestion.

According to Hanna Kroeger (Ageless Remedies from Mother’s Kitchen) chicken soup has a natural ingredient which feeds, repairs and calms the mucous lining in the small intestine. This inner lining is the beginning or ending of the nervous system. Chicken soup heals the nerves, improves digestion, reduces allergies, relaxes and gives strength.

Chicken soup heals the nerves, improves digestion, reduces allergies, relaxes and gives strength.

The healthiest chicken soup is made with your own home-made chicken stock. Never made your own stock before? Don’t worry – it’s surprisingly easier than you may think! Take a look at my Easy and Nutritious Chicken Stock.

Try to use organic vegetables where possible and either sea salt or Himalayan salt. I buy mine from The Himalayan Salt Store (see below) – see Healthier Options.
