All of the information I share is based on my personal experience and not necessarily proven fact.
I am a strong believer in natural remedies. I feel there is a great need for doctors in our world but it is my opinion that we rely on medicine too often. Simple remedies for colds and minor illnesses do work. Man has been using them for centuries. Without modern medicine many people would have died without treatment. I think there can be some kind of balance between the two. There are some people who carry things to the extreme. Common sense is needed when taking care of our loved ones. Be wise and consult a doctor when your child is ill.
Please note: I believe children's taste buds are very sensitive when they are young. This soup will probably not be a suitable option for small children.
