Hi there, dear friends 😀
A few weeks ago, some of my family members were suffering from different stomach ailments ranging from the occasional bouts of mild nausea to bloatedness and wind in the stomach.
I told my lady healer friend about the stomach ailments and she taught me some home remedies to counter those problems using soups and Chinese medicines. She said the stomach is producing wind and once the wind problem is addressed by taking the Chinese medicines (the easier method) or soups, then the stomach is to be warmed up by consuming a bowl of Chinese herbal lamb soup. 💡
The Chinese herbs used here are those that we commonly use to make soups and can be found easily at Chinese Medial Halls (shops) here in Malaysia and Singapore. However, I am not sure if those living overseas will be able to get them from their local Chinatown stores, but I think it will be helpful if you can show them a picture of the herbs required. These herbs are not very expensive. Just say that you are making soup for how many persons and they will prepare the right amount of herbs for you. 💡
2 Honey Dates, halved
Chinese Red Dates, seeds removed
Wai San & Fook Sun
Goji or Wolfberries
2 litres water or 10 rice bowls of water
1) Bring water to a boil in a claypot or soup pot.
2) Put all ingredients into the pot.
3) Bring water back to a boil. Skim off any scum that comes to the surface. Do this for about 5 minutes.
4) Lower fire down to small and simmer for 1 1/2 hours.
5) Season to taste with a little salt. Serve hot on its own or with dinner. Yummy! 😀
Note – this soup can be prepared with a slow cooker/crockpot and simmered for a longer period.
Other than the purpose of warming up our stomachs, the ingredients in this soup aids in nourishing our health, improving vitality and stamina, is good for eyesight and promoting good sleep. 💡
By putting in 2 Honey Dates, this soup is rendered not too heaty for consumption. On other occasions, we usually use chicken in place of lamb and it is good to have this yummy soup at least twice a month for health maintenance.

Bon Appetit! 😀
With best wishes for good health,
P.S. I will post next on some Chinese medicine to be taken to address serious stomach problems
