Hey Family,

I have gone back and read about BB from past posts.

Tutu has a lot to say ( [kiss] ), Lymie lauren piped in about GI, and someone talked about amino acids and their improvement, mentioning their nails (sorry, forgot who).

I'd love to hear from you three, and anyone else who has used this for better wellness. I read it's part of the GAPS diet.

I have read that it does many things, from GI-Kidney-Joints-Brain. I'm in it for brain healing, and GI healing.

Any bad reactions welcome as well.

Thanks Loads

I never got into full swing on it. I know it was good for me, but I didn't keep going because my husband is very sensitive to certain food smells.

Cooking it for hours and hours just about did him in!

Maybe one day I can try again.

I make chicken broth for my hubby. I like to put it in the crockpot to cook.

He likes to drink it when his stomach is unhappy. As to how much it helps......... I don't know..... but he always asks for chicken broth when his gut is messed up.

I have reactions to many foods, and found I got wired from the bone broths(both organic beef and chicken) I have that reaction to some other foods too, so it's probably just me.

I did read the gaps book, ad it sounded like bone broths can be very beneficial(healing) for many. I hope it helps you.

TuTu- my hubby would leave the house and not come back til done if I cooked something that bothered his sense of smell.

My parents loved liver, I gagged and would stay in my room til cleared.

Everybody has their own " thang " (as we said in Oklahoma- near that other state, you know, the big dry one....)

Is the broth healing in general or are you guys talking about healing for the gut?

I had severe nerve and gut issues, and daily bone broth was an essential piece of my recovery with mild hyperbaric...

I continue to eat it at least 3x per week...

You can also make it in a crock pot, which is much easier. Very good and nutritious when served with chopped avocado.

As I became well, I was able to combine it with vegetable stock and cooked vegetables...

I used bone broth alot to heal my gut. Would make a batch in the crockpot every few days.

I also followed the Autoimmune Paleo and from there moved to just Paleo. Knock on wood I've been feeling really good!

If someone has a bad reaction to bone broth it could be from the increase in glutamate. A few people have reported getting really nasty headaches (similar to when the ingest MSG)

Thanks for everyone response.

Ellen, how long did it take for the broth to heal your gut?

Any other success stories?

I am not sure if I discovered it here on Lymenet or somewhere else, but I have made the most delicious broths by slow cooking a whole chicken (I try to buy the free roaming with no antibiotics). I roast it in my large oval crock pot all day and we enjoy a delicious roast.

Then, that night, after taking the meat off the bones, I put them back into the crock pot and add water, veggies (celery, carrots, onions, and whatever I have) along with sea salt, peppercorns, and a couple of tablespoons of apple cider vinegar.

I love this because I don't have to wash the crock pot that night! All the flavors from the drippings and any veggies and herbs I used with the chicken will flavor the broth. [Smile]

I slow cook the broth all night on a low setting. In the morning, I have a beautiful base for soups. I also add chopped herbs like parsley, thyme, oregano or chives to flavor it.

I do recall feeling really good after eating the homemade chicken soup. This thread makes me want to make more. I just took some out of the freezer for tonight! [lick]

Just made my second batch of BB.

Really happy with it.

It was much more gelatinous. The only thing I did differently was to put the old long bones from the other chicken underneath the new chicken when it started cooking for the first couple hours.

I also let the heat of the last two hours remain on a higher temp.

But, it looks more medicinal, but probably less tasty. I serve my son a glass of that every day now, and I add garlic powder and Himalayan salt.

As a side note, I also was recommended to give him cod liver oil from Blue ......something....Ice maybe. Not sure.

I guess they've used that for Parkinsons patients.

I may have found someone to muscle test, but I'm not sure....still looking into it.

thanks for listening and helping family....up

Just a reminder do not heat it in the microwave as you will destroy any benefits [Smile]

Love this thread! Soups were a mainstay in my home. My acupuncture doc in SF advised me to eat only foods that were thoroughly cooked. Even fruit. My gut is horrible.

Mom never let a carcus go to waste....chickens, turkey. Then we made vegetable soup with beef knuckle bones and thigh bones for meat...slow simmer 4 hrs or longer.

I didn't know not to microwave. I put soup in small freezer dishes for after school snacks. Have to heat on stove?

PM me for my awesome chicken soups recipes, veg soup, bean soup, noodles. Old family standbys. We thought using canned food an unhealthy, lazy luxury! LOL I cheat. Too weak to do canning anymore.

That is so kind farraday. There's nothing like od family recipes for soup to continue the healing process and bring the damaged back to life.

You are so right Ellen. I got that intuitive pang, which I am really starting to listen to now.......... It said don't wave....it'll destroy.

I've been heating over the stove.
