Rare and Common Soup

This Rare and Common Soup is from Susun Weed's article on seaweed.

8 shitake mushroom (if unavailable use any mushroom)
1 cup dried fucus (bladderwrack)
hot water as needed
6 cups pure water
1 teaspoon garlic oil
6 oz soba noodles
1 tablespoon tamari or miso

Soak shitake and seaweed separately in hot water for 30 minutes.
Reserve the liquid when draining.
Slice shitake caps, saving the stalks for later use.
Bring the 6 cups water to a boil and add seaweed, garlic oil, reserved soaking liquid (minus any grit that settles to the bottom), and the noodles.
Cook uncovered at high heat until seaweed is soft.
Add tamari or miso after removing soup from heat and serve.

Drink Nourishing Herbal Infusions
Excerpt from Susun Weed's book, New Menopausal Years the Wise Woman Way

Nourishing herbal infusions are the second key to vibrant elder years and an easier menopause. They provide protein, minerals, phytoestrogens, and special fats needed by menopausal women. Many common menopausal problems can be connected to a lack of one or more of these nutrients.

Low protein leaves hair and skin dull, lifeless, and thin. Nourishing herbal infusions, plain yogurt, lentils, and organic meats are excellent sources.

Low levels of minerals leave the bones and heart deprived of calcium, the immune system low in zinc, and the muscles prone to pain and spasms. Nourishing herbal infusions, plain yogurt, seaweed, and organic chocolate are magnificent sources.
