I actually had a Jewish Doctor onetime tell me that fresh made chicken broth would help fight off a cold. A doctor could not prescribe chicken noodle soup because the noodles add too much starch to your diet.
Now a true recipe that works every time is fresh chicken broth with lots of fresh lemon and garlic cloves simmered for 6 to 8 hours and then sipped slowly, from a mug, while inhaling the vapors from the steam. About a gallon of this over about 3 days period will pretty much knock a cold on its butt.

Profit and greeeeed. They knew they all couldnt buy Campbell's stock without being found out.
I am sure to step on a few toes here,,, but... The same can be said for most organisations and professions that have achieved noticeable levels of power. It seems to corrupt from within. The current forms of insurance, power and energy providers, attorneys, etc, etc.
The saddest part of this truth... People with medicinal knowledge were entrusted with the responsibility of [Care Giving] , we were betrayed by them and our own blind trust unchecked. This happened at or about the same tiime that it became a medical profession.
People, friends and sites like this go a long way in healing the mind and heart. Most of the rest can be taken care of by a bowl of home-made chicken soup and a cup of tea.

Yes, we know why they don't prescribe a simple remedy of chicken soup for flu or cold symptoms...greeeeed, just as many below have mentioned.  Sometimes it is just very simple things that keep us healthy instead of all the pills.  Pills eventually will make us more sick!

Doctors are in to medicine and don't have a stake in the soup companies nor the companies that supply the things used in homemade chicken soup, Doctors, Drugstores,hospitals and funeral directers are all in the bed together, so why would they recommend or prescibe it, they are not making any money from it, somethings we have to take into our own hands if we know it helps and is good for us...the best to you

I know, but, it isn't their business to not tell people what is good for them. Lol I was just curious what people would say. We all know that the chicken soup is good for us. ^_^

I didn't think of funeral directors but it makes sense. I bet they all eat chicken
noodle soup when they get sick and keep it hush hush.

2. It's delicious and can be made at home saving you a trip

Oh Sweeties (all of you other answerers &Tig) the reason they don't "prescribe" it is because you don't need a prescription to get it.  If it's over the counter they don't prescribe.  Every doctor I've ever had - and that's a lot - have recommended chicken soup when I've been sick.  They also sometimes give me an Rx but not nearly as often as the recommendation.  I don't know what docs you all have been seeing, but try asking them about it the next time.  I'll bet most of them will agree that chicken soup couldn't hurt and might very well help.  If you've got high blood pressure, you need to either buy the low sodium kind, or if you make it yourself, reduce the salt as much as you can stand it.

Hon, I know the benefits of chicken noodle soup, have known that all my life, and most "mothers" will naturally know that. I cook low salt all the time, there is no salt in my baked chicken except for the bouillon that I use. That is usually low sodium, and I do have blood pressure issues. Lol But, for a general relief, don't you think that if a doc writes out the prescription, and hands that to the patient, they might be more apt to listen to what the doctor says?

I have to agree with you. You don't need a prescription. I have been told things to eat or drink by my doc in the office that can improve my health. But with every institution, there is always room for greed and improvement.

Because the doctor hasn't gotten any kickbacks from soup makers and the pharmaceutical companies wouldn't make any money off of it.
