A couple of months ago, I wrote a blog on the healing powers of bone broth. I’ve been religiously making my own (my slow cooker is working 24/7), and I have noticed some positive changes, which I’m very excited about.

1). My fingernails look like I’ve just had a manicure. They are hard and shiny, and my cuticles are perfect.

2). My wife says my hair looks better; it certainly feels thicker.

3). Most important! My bowels are working as good as they have in a long time. I’ve been battling Crohn’s and Ulcerative colitis on and off for 16 years. I even ended up in the hospital last March with a stricture in my transverse colon. Since I started drinking bone broth (1-2 mugs/day), no symptoms. While I know that it’s too early to declare a complete victory, I’m very hopeful.

In the book Nourishing Broth, by Sally Fallon Morell, there are numerous testimonials touting bone broth’s healing qualities. There are also recipes on how to make it. I highly recommend the read. So far I’ve made chicken, turkey, beef, and pork broth. Give it a try.

Stay well, John R Blilie M.S.
