Bone Broth Healing
Bone Broth is one of the most healing foods in any diet. The vitamins and minerals you get from the broken-down bones that have been cooked have powerful healing properties and bone broth is excellent for speeding healing and recovery from illness.
The healing effects of bone broth on your gut are very important because as of very recently, medical scientists have found that your overall health is very dependent on the health of your intestinal tract. Many of our modern diseases appear to be rooted from an unbalanced mix of microorganisms in our digestive systems, which happens due to too many people having an unbalanced diet too high in sugar content and too low in beneficial bacteria and healthful fats.
Bone broth is excellent for "healing and sealing" your gut, as said by Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. Dr. Campbell's GAPS Nutritional Healing program, as mentioned in her book, Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS), centers around the concept of "healing and sealing" your gut through your diet.
