Immune Builder Broth

The replication of the COVID virus in the body can lead to symptoms of cough, fever, chills, and difficulty breathing.[1] Onion is a powerful food with many healing compounds, including vitamin C, sulfur compounds, and flavonoids, including a very beneficial flavonoid for combating COVID—quercetin.[2] Onions help build up the immune system, heal the gut, and help get zinc into our cells. Garlic is rich in organosulfur compounds such as allicin, which is powerful for its antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and immunomodulatory effects.[3]


Step 1

Boil 3 cups of water.

Step 2

Cut one onion in half and add to the boiling water. Optional: crush 5 cloves of garlic, let crushed garlic sit for 10 minutes, then add to the water.

Step 3

Add ½ tsp of unrefined salt (or to taste). Boil the onion for 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit until the broth is cool enough to drink.


For infection, drink 1 cup twice a day on an empty stomach. For prevention, drink once daily on an empty stomach.
