You might think that after 20+ years of this food stuff I would not get so amazed by the power of eating plants to create healing anymore. Nope, I'm still in awe. Yesterday I was experiencing allergies where my eyes were burning and my nose just would not stop running and I felt like there was bit of fog in my head that just wouldn't clear. Nothing was working. I tried several different homeopathic remedies, I tried herbs and I was starting to think I had better get to an MD and get some hard core drug. I have been eating cleanly so how could I be suffering so?
Sunday is not the best day to be sick especially a Sunday that is also a holiday. Allergies are not an emergency even if might feel like it is. I got an idea that I would make a medicinal stew and see if it helped at all. I went to a Japanese market and got burdock, daikon, lotus and some kabocha squash just for comfort. I made an aduki bean stew and figured if nothing else the daikon, burdock and lotus might clear some of the runny nose. Thankfully the dish tasted great, because I made a lot of it. I felt pretty good after eating it and in just a couple of hours I noticed a huge difference. I slept well and woke up feeling great with only the slightest touch of what I had going on yesterday. It's incredible. I had spent so much money on supplements and all I really needed was to cook myself well.
