In the fast paced society that we live in it is easy to overlook the little things in life, like sleep, relaxation, and good nutrition. Little things. So if you had to choose one of those three to achieve, it would be wise to choose nutrition. Proper nutrition is a fuel source, a cache of building blocks for the body to use in repair, and a defense booster for the body against illnesses.
One of the most potent and nutritious weapons in your arsenal for complete nutrition is an old world, and often forgotten ingredient, bone broth. It is a base for making great soups, stews, gumbo, and healthy people. If you are like most people, you might scoff at a thing like bone broth because it sounds disgusting, like the idea of eating liver, but it is a nutritiously dense food. Most times it is easy to find high caloric foods that are poor in nutrition, like white breads, French fries and processed ice cream. On the other side are foods that are high in mineral and vitamin content as well as amino acids, like bone broth.
As a chiropractor, I work with people who are in pain and whose bodies are mending from chronic stress, repetitive injury or accidents. Bone broths are ideal to provide the substances that the cells need to heal, whether it is bone, cartilage or muscle tissues. It is easily absorbed in the digestive system and has many components that are being sold in vitamin form for joint health in stores across the nation. Once you know both how important it is for a growing or healing body and how to prepare the broth, the only thing left is how to incorporate it into your diet.
I am a supporter of the Weston A. Price Foundation, who promote human health through proper nutrition and I encourage my patients to watch the video on their website on how to prepare broth.
If you are have culinary difficulties, you can purchase well sourced broths in local farmers markets, or searching for the companies that supply them in your area online. Either way, bone broth is an excellent, albeit forgotten, staple to healing and fortifying the body. I recommend getting broth into your diet weekly, and especially in times of stress or sickness. Fortify your diet and make an impact in your health.
