Sweet Version Of Lung Cleansing Watercress Soup – Good For Smokers, Halitosis (Bad Breath), Soothing Body Heatiness & Coughs

Hi there, dear friends 😀

Earlier I had written about the wonderful health benefits of the watercress soup for cleansing our lungs. This post can be read HERE .

All this while, I have always cooked a savoury version of watercress soup, using either pork or chicken…but today, I decided to do a sweet version. My healer friend had mentioned before that the sweet version tastes even better when it is drank cold after it is refrigerated.

Below is a picture of my large pot of watercress soup – the ingredients were :-

  • 1 kg watercress, cleaned and use stems and all
  • 400 gm of preserved honey dates or “mutt joe”
  • about 4 litres of water or enough water to fill a large pot

Method – Bring all ingredients to a boil, lower fire and simmer for 4 hours.

A mug of delicious, rich coloured, sweet watercress soup.


Just strain off the soup and store it in bottles in the refrigerator. It can be kept for 2 to 3 days, and each of my family member will have at least one cup of this healthy soup each day.

Among the Chinese, the watercress soup is traditionally known to be good for our lungs but it was from my healer friend that I learnt the watercress soup, be it savoury or sweet, has the following health benefits  :-

1) it is really effective for detoxifying our lungs of impurities. Smokers and people who live in a polluted environment will benefit greatly from drinking this soup.

2) in TCM, bad breath or halitosis is believed to be caused by heatiness of the lungs, and this soup will cure that. My healer friend was approached one day for a natural remedy by a lady whose husband was having bad breath. He drank the watercress soup over 2 days and his bad breath was gone completely.

3) a soothing remedy for body heatiness, especially during the hot and dry weather.

4) also a good remedy for soothing the lungs from coughs

A word of caution – although I love the taste of watercress soup, my youngest son said it smells terrible. So, you be the judge, okay? 😆

With best wishes for good health,

Wow, I’m So Impressed With My Eco (Fruit) Enzyme Cleaner – You’ve Got To Try It! Here’s My Review…

Good afternoon, dear friends 😀

My first bottle of eco or fruit enzyme was due to “mature” on 09 July, 2009 but because I had ran out of floor wash and I was impatient to know know effective the enzyme is as a multi cleaner, I poured some of it out to use on 16 June, 2009….3 weeks prematurely, before harvest due date!

Wow, I am so impressed with the amazing cleaning qualities of the eco enzyme that for the past week, I have been trying out this “premature” enzyme on almost anything and I was busy cleaning like a busy beaver! 😆

(Do read the comments at the bottom of this post for more amazing cleaning experiences posted by the visitors here and myself)

Check out this POST on how to make your own fruit enzyme. 😉

mini-Eco Enzyme 001

Photo taken on  06 May, 2009 – on the left is my first eco enzyme made from lemon and orange peels, which I had posted HERE. The  middle one was made from lemon, orange and beet root. The right one is made from green apples and some lemon.

mini-Eco Enzyme 002Photo taken on 16 June, 2009 – I had made a new bottle of eco enzyme using the skins of one dragon fruit and 2 oranges. Notice that the contents of the right bottle made from beetroot has turned yellow?

Here’s my review on the eco enzyme –

Bathrooms

Previously, I had tried vinegar, bleach and specilised bathroom cleaners to wash my bathrooms and toilets. With the eco enzyme, cleaning of bathrooms had become a breeze! I used 1/2 cup of enzyme to 1 litre of water with a good squirt of dish detergent for the suds as my cleaning solution and I wet the whole bathroom with it. Wow, the dirt and scum came off easily with minimal scrubbing…most importantly, I did not have to bear with any cleaner fumes..instead there was a wonderful citrus smell. The enzyme was also good in removing stale bathroom odours. Am I impressed indeed! 😯

Tiled Floors

Being in the tropics, our houses here are not carpeted and we walk barefooted at home. So, it is of utmost importance to me that my floors must be clean. Having an effective floor wash to mop my floors is crucial, given that my house is 3 storeys high and I have a lot of area to mop. Previously, I had tried expensive enzymatic floor cleaners, vinegar and standard commercial floor wash. As I have 3 cats, I can’t use strong commercial cleaners as they may be poisonous to my cats (cats are always licking to clean their paws and fur).

With great excitement, I poured 2 tablespoons of eco enzyme into a pail containing 3 litres of water.

Again, I am simply astounded by the enzyme – the dirt on the floor was easily removed and the pail of water was getting dirtier faster than if I had use my previous type of floorwash, even with vinegars. Another proof of the superb cleaning power of the enzyme was seeing the floor grouting (the lines between the tiles) getting brighter/whiter! I used this one pail of water plus enzyme to mop one whole floor.  After this, my floor was squeaky clean and very shiny! 😀

Two days I mopped my floors again with the enzyme. This time, the pail of water got even dirtier, which I guessed was due to more old dirt and grime being removed by the enzyme. By the third time I mop the floors (another 2 days later), the dirt in the water was lesser and by now, my floors look brand new and shiny. Best is the wonderful, clean feel on the soles of our feet when we walk on the floor. Wow!

With the enzyme floor wash, there is no rinse is required, it absorbs odours, it is safe for pets and the leftover mop water can be used as plant fertilisers.

Glass Doors & Windows

I used window cleaners and lots of paper kitchen towels to clean my glass doors and windows. Often, I have had to wipe them a few rounds to get them really clean with no smudges. With the eco enzyme, I used 2 tablespoons of it with 2 litres of water and a clean cotton towel. No rinse is required and the glass was easily cleaned effortless..all in just one wipe and in a couple of minutes. Old water stains were easily removed for those windows exposed to rain. Fantastic!

Car Porch & Garden Pots

With the amount of rain that we get, some parts of my car porch and garden pots have green algae. Also, as the car porch is not often washed or scrubbed, there tend to be a buildup of dirt and grime that is hard to remove. I had tried using vinegars and strong cleaners and srubbed my car porch like crazy..but still, it didn’t turn out as sparkling clean as when I used my eco enzyme.

To half a pail of water (about 3 litres), I poured in half a cup of enzyme (if I had more enzyme, I would have used more..maybe next time….because this is a heavy duty job)…I spread the cleaning solution over my whole car porch and then started scrubbing a small area first. Again, I need not srub hard and the dirt came our very easily….cleaning the car porch has never being so effortless for me and I was so happy! The green algae came off easily from the floor and pots. Even my children commented they have never seen our car porch so clean before.

Kitchen Hob/Stove

I didn’t get very good results for using the enzyme to clean my oily gas hob after a heavy cooking session – probably because I didn’t use enough enzyme. By now, my “yet to mature” enzyme has been half used and I dared not use too much of it.  I will report more on this the next time I clean my kitchen with the eco enzyme. 😉

Kitchen Wall Tiles and Glass Blocks

Again, these were easily cleaned with minimal time…I have gleaming wall tiles and glass blocks.

Refrigerators

They were really easy to clean with the enzyme. Best is stale odours were removed quickly and interior and exterior surfaces of the fridges are now sparkling clean and shiny. As both my GE fridges are white in colour, the cleaned doors were quite obvious.

Other areas I would like to try using the enzyme for :-

1) washing the car? Just to see how good the enzyme is for removing old dirt from the paint and the stubborn watermarks on the windows and windscreen. 😆

2) doing the dishes?

3) cleaning the painted walls?

4) doing the laundry?

5) as an insect repellent? Thus far, I have tried a little of the enzyme on some areas where there were ants…but I need to test this out more before I can write more on it.

6) as a facial cleanser? I am not really sure about this but my air-condition repairman said his wife uses the enzyme to wash her face and her complexion is now so good. She even calls this enzyme, “SK-111″…this is also another reason why I decided to use fruits only to make the enzyme as it will smell better.   😆

7) fertiliser – in addition to using the enzyme as fertilisers for my plants, I intend to blend the remains of the fruit pulp with some water and pour them onto my plants.

Advantages of using the eco enzyme :-

1) really, really effective as a cleaner…..doesn’t need a lot of effort to clean anymore, and the dirt is so easily removed that it is almost magical!

2) cost effective – I am now saving a lot of money in not having to buy anymore bleaches, vinegar, cleaners, floorwashes, toilet bowl cleaners, glass cleaners….and so on. The enzyme is almost free and the only minimal cost is in the sugar.  Also, I save money from buying fertilisers.

3) safe to use…there are no chemicals involved…and so, it is good for those families who have pets and small children at home

4) nice smell to it – no irritating chemical fumes. Can even remove odours,

5) it is an environmental friendly product

6) it is gentle on our hands

I hope you will be able to make some enzyme and see for yourself how wonderful its cleaning qualities are. It will save you a lot of energy, work and money and you will be like me…..beaming with a wide smile everytime I finish cleaning with the enzyme! 😀

From now onwards, I will be making eco enzymes regularly to provide a steady supply for my cleaning requirements! 😆

Happy Cleaning! 😀

With best wishes,

North Sector Mountain Technique – 2009 (NSM)

Therefore, people who stay in the house,  or people at work at the office, or business persons,  will have strong support and protection from the mountain for whatever they are doing in life, especially from vile people and etc…..

With the NSM properly placed – people in the house usually are well mannered and with good behaviour – especially on money spending – this also protect money from going out easily without good reasons.

North Sector Mountain Technique  also enhances and strenghtens one’s career and business luck, providing – protection from office politics and back stabbing.
