Healing Soup for Colds

Jerry wasn't feeling well yesterday so I made some soup to bring him to good health. Today he's already feeling much better! Garlic, ginger, onions and jalepenos come together well to provide some serious healing action. Garlic acts as nature's antibiotic, ginger is a great digestion aid, onions help with congestion, jalapenos are high in vitamin C and also help with congestion. Take a hot bath with some essential oils and herbs afterwards with lots of rest and you'll be well on your way.
