Healing with Food: Bone Broth

bone soup reciepe

There are only a few foods that have stood the test of time for their properties for healing and renewing the body – As you already know, I have talked about the power of bone soup in my previous article “Health Reset Button – Bone Soup“.

So if you haven’t read the previous post, please do read it, as it covers some basics on bone soup. For benefits of bone soup, there are countless, from beauty to faster recovery time when sick; it also renews your stomach and helps heal ulcers in the stomach. There are endless benefits, and on top of that, it actually tastes very yummy!

Since my last post, many of you have asked me for more details on the recipe (which is vital, if you want the legendary healing of the food, and not just as a food to eat) and although I gave a general idea on its basics and what you really need, I want to introduce you to the most powerful recipe book you can own, and it’s called Bone Deep Broth: Healing Recipes with Bone Broth by Taylor Chen and Lya Mojica – it was just launched recently (Jan 7th 2016).

You can buy the book at Amazon here for my UK readers; for US Readers, you can go to the US Amazon. The book covers aspects that I did not cover, and are important if you want to use bone soup in many ways – for kids and adults, and variations of the original recipe, whilst keeping the main healing properties you need to have to get the benefits.

Making bone soup is easy, but there are various aspects of cooking which this book covers that are not always understood, and they are assumed you already know them (but many don’t know them) – some people refer to them as secrets of cooking; things like adding salt just before eating the soup, rather than during cooking or serving makes a huge difference in healing properties of the soup and gaining benefits from the salt for your health.

In case you’re wondering, it’s related to the salt attaching itself to the impurities in the food instead of being used to detoxify your body (yes Salt is powerful – See article here on “12 Reasons Salt makes you Invincible“). To conclude, you can have bone soup everyday, and get all the nutrients you need, THAT is how nutrient dense it is – what are you waiting for? Go buy some high quality organic grass fed bones and get cooking!

Chemicals Everywhere – One Solution

Humans Part of Nature

When every single grain of soil is contaminated with arsenic, mercury and toxic chemicals from all kinds of pesticides – on top of that, we have genetically modified food and apparent chemtrails in the air – what does a human do to survive in this seemingly disgusting world? It can be depressing when you think of all these, and you don’t even want to take a bite out of your apple – when that same apple seems equivalent in how apparently bad it is for your body, just as the take away food down the street!

What is the solution to all this madness? Is there even a solution?

 

Yes there is a solution – but this is the wrong approach to understand it. Humans separate themselves from nature, thinking nature is one thing, and they are another – this is itself perfect thinking to create disease in the first place. You must understand, humans are not separate from nature. Once you understand that humans are not separate from nature, the next step is to understand, nature is not in trouble – no matter how many trees we destroy, or chemicals we release – nature is unaffected by all this and simply evolves to find a way to live and coexist with whatever is happening – that is what life is!

“Humans separate themselves from nature, thinking nature is one thing, and they are another – this is itself perfect thinking to create disease in the first place. You must understand, humans are not separate from nature….”

So what is the way forward from all this – what is the solution to the chemicals infecting our planet?

 

The solution is to coexist with our new environment – to understand, that this direction is part of the bigger picture, and to stop blaming the chemicals, the GMO foods and everything in-between – but instead, accept what has happened and what is continuing to happen, and ask, how do I coexist with these new changes that are taking place in my environment?

One good example is as follows: The chernobyl nuclear power plant accident that caused many to evacuate their homes – scientists said there won’t be any life there for millions of years, but only a few years later, a bacteria appeared that defused the radiation and spread it out, making radiation less dangerous, allowing plants to start growing and animals making a home there without any health problems.

A radioactive sign hangs on barbed wire outside a café in Pripyat.

The hiroshima nuclear blasts killed the entire city, scientists again said, no plants or animal life will be able to survive there for millions of years – although humans still suffer from it till this day, only a short while later, a plant totally resistant to radiation started thriving there in a very short time frame!

The same with oil spills in the ocean – animals surely died from them, but eventually, their bodies and immune systems upgrade, and they learnt to coexist with the chemicals in their environment. Every animal and plant life has been doing this for millions of years – some can call it evolution, some call it adaptation – but in simple human language “if it get’s cold, wear a jacket” kind of thing.

 

Does this mean I should eat GMO foods and go to places that are toxic for my body?

No, you have to find the balance which is right for your body and frame of mind – each and every individual is different and has their own unique physiology and system of balance. Do what you can, to live healthy (whatever healthy means to you) – but also constantly study about health – if you won’t, and accept whatever it is that you know, that is when you stop growing; which is fine if that is what you want.

 

How does one coexist with toxins, they will eventually kill you or make you sick, won’t they?

 

Anything from pure water to cooked food can be toxic if taken in large enough doses; but the words “large enough”, is greatly dependent on your immune system. Most people today have weak immune systems (for one reason or another) as they do not do enough things to keep strong – from simple and basic exercise, to mentally challenging exercises as well as the foods that are eaten, lastly but not least, their emotion management. Many people who do exercise and think they eat right – still does not guarantee a powerful immune system, as the attitude towards life is also vital to your DNA’s expression.

The thought processes in our body have a direct impact on our DNA, and our whole bodies – if you simply stressed for 30 minutes continuously about something, your body would have released stress hormones all over; this is just one of many things that happens when you get stressed (mentally), so imagine what it would do over a lifetime of stress? It is now understood that DNA is constantly changing – a study concluded that DNA expression can change significantly only after 6 months exercise – click here to read the original study conducted.

So imagine, if you consciously took part, with your mind and body – improved your exercise every day, ate the right kind of foods to help you grow, detoxed your body regularly and worked on emotion and thought management, how fast will your DNA expression change, and how fast will your immune system improve!?

DNA expression and Exercise

Of course this requires a lot of commitment and hard work – and it will be hard to fit this in when others may not understand – this is why we ask you to share this article with all your friends and family and all social media sites you are on, as it helps us spread this message. If you are ready to do this – here are the details:

Exercise – this is not the typical exercise regime we are talking about. You don’t take protein shakes either. Ideally you want to be doing exercises like Yoga or even better, Qigong (sometimes also pronounced Chi Gong) – but not just any Qigong or Yoga, it has to be the extreme kind – where you hold postures for 5 minutes or longer per posture done – this is what trains the tendons and ligaments of the body and expands the nervous system from the inside out.

Nutrition – An excellent balance of nutrition needs supplements – times have changed, plants and animals do not provide as much nutrition as they used to – this applies especially to people who are not in good health because they will need this to upgrade their bodies immune system. The most nutritious meal I have come across is bone soup, but remember to make it taste good to your own unique taste buds (it makes it more medicinal) – but this does not mean eating junk food is medicinal because it tastes great – there is a difference, one makes you feel lousy and sluggish after eating, one does not.

Emotion – This is a new concept to the western world, but emotional management comes from understanding situations better – or realizing that outward extreme expressions of emotions is draining to the endocrine system of the human body. A balance of emotions is a better word for this category, as all emotions help us, but too much of one, is going to imbalance the system. One way of doing this, is when a bad situation happens, realize that emotional reactions won’t solve it, better to stay grounded, and figure out a way around it – this avoids stress, and waste of hormones as well as keeps you healthy.

The above done in combination will help upgrade your system to be in tune with nature – what more do you want?

Learning to coexist with wherever nature is taking us, is the single most powerful method of enjoying life, staying healthy and living life to the full – accepting that we, humans, are part of nature too; just like bee’s who make a bee hive and collect honey, we also make our homes, and grow our food, it is nothing different – yes, too much of one thing, for example intensive farming, has accelerated the process of change, which is a problem only for humans because they have to adjust to it – for the rest of life on the planet, it already has adjusted!

humans and nature coexist

 

 

News: Junk Food Addicted Rats Rather Die than eat Healthy

 

In a series of tests conducted over three years, rats addicted to junk food starved themselves to death, rather than eat healthy food (when junk food access was blocked, and only healthy food access was given) –  (published in the journal Nature Neuroscience).

The research strongly suggests that many modern humans also suffer from junk food addiction; however scientists indicate that unlike rats, all humans with access to junk food do not become obese (as in the case with rats); saying the cause of this difference could be the influence of health knowledge and social pressure humans posses.
