Moro’s carrot soup is famous as a stomach virus remedy. If it is a tasty soup I cannot tell you yet. When I do have a serious stomach virus, I will prepare this soup to get some nutrients in my body and to get better. Moro was a pediatric and researcher and his career started with experimental research on the physiology of digestion in children.
Moro had a great pediatric career. In 1900 he presented the first bacteriological characterisation of Lactobacillus acidophilus. In 1906 he was promoted for his work on the bacterial flora in physiological and pathological conditions of the children’s intestine. In 1908 Moro won international reputation for his simple skin test for tuberculosis, which was widely used in many countries as the “Moro test” at least until the 1960s. He described a carrot soup and other dietary prescriptions as helpful for diarrhoeal disease, which made him more famous.
This Moro carrot soup is a remedy against stomach viruses. Cook them for one hour. It supplies water to combat dehydration while replenishing your body with sodium, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, sulfur, and magnesium. It also supplies pectin, and coats the intestine to reduce inflammation. There are more benefits: it will prevent vomiting and any growth of harmful germs inside your intestine.
You only need one kilo of carrots.
Peel 1 kg of carrots, cut into large pieces (3cm), cook with 1 liter of water for 30 min (a pressure cooker, if you don’t have one you have to boil it for an hour);
Drain the liquid and add 1 liter of water with a teaspoon of salt. Administer 100 ml (adults) or 30 ml (children) every 15 min.References Weirich A, Hoffmann GF.
