💪 IMMUNE SUPPORT #2: BONE BROTH
Immune Support #2 – bone broth.
As more of us become aware of the fundamental impact of our gut health and integrity of our intestinal tract on our immune health the issue is how can we improve both.
Enter bone broth 💪 💪
Chicken soup, or broth – often hailed as ‘Jewish penicillin’ – has acquired a reputation as a folk remedy for colds and ‘flu and is prized in many cultures as comfort food. Just about every country on the planet has its own version of chicken broth.
Traditional Chinese medicine has long prized their healing ‘congee’ – a well-cooked rice-based porridge often made with a stock from chicken feet. It’s earned its reputation of ‘stock-on-steroids’!
Ayurveda, the ancient ‘science of life’ in India has prescribed various versions of ‘kitchari’ (a well-cooked broth of rice, mung beans, vegetables and spices) to countless generations for detoxing and restoring weak digestion. I have written a whole series of articles on the wonders of bone broth:
Part 2: What’s So Hot About Bone Broth?
The history and health benefits of bone broth are so impressive that I’ve devoted a whole chapter to it in my book, The Real Food Solution where I explain in detail how and why it’s earned its reputation, offer a number of recipes and suggest ways we can incorporate this important healing nutrient into our daily lives.
THE REAL FOOD SOLUTION
Our risk for contracting communicable diseases like the Covid-19 virus increases when our immune system is weak and a weakened immune system is largely the result of a less than optimal diet and an unsupportive lifestyle. Even as we are experiencing this current crisis, we are also seeing underlying epidemics of chronic diseases of every kind – diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, degenerative, digestive and autoimmune disorders across the globe. These conditions too, are largely diet and lifestyle-driven and they are preventable.
We need to act now
We have robust science to show us that what we eat has never been more important for our health and, because all life is inextricably connected, for our planet. The Real Food Solution will help you to discover the power of real food as medicine for better health.. for you and for our planet.
Crises like Covid-19 are a test our humanity… let’s stop queuing up for loo rolls and start creating a strong, resilient foundation of immune health… together.
