Here’s the recipe for the soup created by Dr. Henry Bieler for his clients and given to me by Eileen Poole at my first visit in 1979. It has been a daily diet mainstay since I saw Eileen nearly 33 years ago. I have a cup in the morning with my steamed veggies, cooked grain & protein meal, a cup with lunch and a diluted cup by my bedside so I can sip it if I wake up. Eileen always recommended a short Bieler’s fast if I overindulged during the holidays, at celebrations or felt a bit under the weather…which always pulled me through or nipped the overload in the bud.
Years back, there was a fire in the apartment building where I lived resulting in a smoke inhalation project for me. When I called Eileen to tell her what happened sharing I had a sore throat, severe headache and very achy chest with spasmodic, dry coughing she suggested doing a 3 day Bieler’s Soup fast with a large squeeze of lemon added to every cup to clear the ill effects I was experiencing. By the third day all my symptoms were gone and I felt back to normal. I have used this remedy several times when I inhaled something that irritated my lungs or bronchial pathways with good results.
• Bieler’s Soup
*This soup is referred to as the “Miracle Soup” by many of my clients. They feel and look better with just 1-2 cups a day.
4-6 Zucchini sliced (medium size)
1 lb Bag Fresh Frozen or Whole Green Beans
1 Handful of Parsley Tops (No Stems)
2 Stalks of Celery sliced with strings removed (Optional)
Fill a large pot with 1/3 water and add all the ingredients. Cover and cook in rapidly boiling water for 15-18 minutes until the vegetables are fork tender. Then place all ingredients in blender and puree in batches until smooth. Season with any of your favorite herbs, i.e., paprika, oregano, garlic, lemon, lime or basil. Serve hot or cold.
Do not add salt. You can add a pat of unsalted butter for extra body.
