Alkaline detox broth

This is based on Bieler broth and Dr Connelly’s vegetable soup.  Recommended for increased energy and treatment of stress.  In particular courgette/zucchini with it’s high sodium content nourishes the adrenal glands. Dr Connelly a chiropractor from Washington DC recommends this for back pain, ligament problems and other symptoms of depleted adrenal function. The broth is rich in electroyltes and great to drink throughout the day.
