Potassium Broth Remedy

Potassium is a mineral that is found in the foods you eat. It is also an electrolyte. Electrolytes conducts electrical impulses throughout the body. They assist in a range of essential body functions, including: blood pressure; normal water balance; muscle contractions; nerve impulses; digestion and heart rhythm. Potassium isn’t produced naturally by the body, so it’s important to consume the right balance of potassium-rich foods and beverages.  Potassium-rich sources include: fruits, such as apricots, bananas, kiwi, oranges, and pineapples, vegetables, such as leafy greens, carrots, and potatoes, lean meats, whole grains, beans and nuts.

Potassium Broth - Home remedy for  Pneumonia: Drink a potassium broth. Ingredients: 4 carrots washed with skin; 2 potatoes with skins; 1 onion, quartered; 3 stalks celery; 1/2 bunch parsley; 1/2 head red cabbage; 1/2 bunch broccoli; 1-2 cloves garlic (add more to your preference).
Add filtered or bottled water to cover the vegetables, bring to a boil and then simmer with lid on for 30-minutes. The vegetables should be firm - not mushy.
Remove from heat and serve hot or store in the refrigerator or freeze for later. I think it also tastes excellent served cold. If desired you can pour into a blender and puree for a creamy texture. You can then freeze single servings or even pour into an ice cube tray and reheat as desired.

Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking herbal medications
