“Leave your drugs in the chemist’s pot if you can heal the patient with food.” – Hippocrates
Sniffle Soup® is for foodies and cooks who want to use culinary herbs and spices to help alleviate pesky ailments.
Sniffle Soup® allows you to transform a basic recipe for soup, stew, sauté or stir fry into a dish that can boost health in a unique way.
If, for example, you have sleep problems, you can convert a Chicken Tortilla Soup into
Insomnia Soup… If you tend towards migraines, you could create Headache Soup from the same Chicken Tortilla Soup. And morning-after symptoms may dissipate with Hangover Soup.
You could use the same healing blends for non-soup dishes like Brain Fog Braise, MemoryStir-Fry or Pimple Sauté. You could even add a healing blend to a restaurant dish or takeout meal.

So far Sniffle Soup® addresses 50 ailments, from allergies, brain fog and bloating to
headaches, pimples and varicose veins. Please press Ailments for the complete list.
A blend of 5 to 17 herbs and spices is offered for each ailment.
From the set offered, select the ones you like to create your own personal healing blend for a specific ailment. You can select some or all. For low energy, for example, you might choose basil, oregano, ginger, cardamom, and parsley from the set of 8 herbs and spices offered. Garlic and onion are already in all the recipes, so they are not offered for selection.
You can always omit them if you have a hot lunch date coming up.
