Bone Broth: Nature’s Ultimate Healing Solution

Bone Broth: Nature’s Ultimate Healing Solution

Bone broth is by far the fastest, cheapest, and most effective healing food substance known; one, that’s been consumed for tens of thousands of years. I challenge any medical doctor or health practitioner to state otherwise! But, to ensure optimum benefits, anyone consuming this natural, golden elixir, must adhere to a strict bone broth protocol, that if followed to the letter, will give them the guaranteed results they are looking for, almost every time!

Now, how can I guarantee these results? Honesty, I can’t, for ‘every time’; but, it’s not about me; it’s about you, and what you experience firsthand by sourcing, preparing, and then consuming this powerful bone broth, precisely as per my instructions. Then and only then, will most people consuming it, experience its’ dramatic, definable, and healing benefits.

Let’s be very clear here; I am not talking ‘cures’ for anything or everything that ails yah! I am talking about ‘healing’, ‘soothing’, ‘relieving’, ‘providing comfort’, including a ‘lessening of pain and discomfort’; these are the things I am talking about. These are the tangible things that other people, other like-minded people like yourself have also experienced and shared. This is the sole purpose of bone brothing. To help you heal from the inside out. And, it works; ‘almost every time’! :)

Definition: ‘Bone Brothing’ is the act of ‘sourcing’, ‘preparing’, ‘cooking’, and then creatively, ‘ingesting’ this proteinaceous, anti-inflammatory food substance.

Allow me to share some bone broth facts with you; ones that you can easily verify. I’d like to begin by why I consider it a true way to better health and longer life. Personally, I use bone broth as a Universal entrance point to better health, for anyone looking to be healthier or to live longer. Bone broth is such a simple yet powerful food substance, while also being such a dynamic and natural therapeutic agent; mainly towards helping your body, gut and brain heal; strictly speaking, it’s nature’s most powerful anti-inflammatory food. It simply boggles my mind why most people are not using this miraculous broth, every day of their lives.

It’s in our DNA: The Basic Building Block of Life

Bone broth, in one form or another, has existed according to archeological digs of clay pots and their carbon dating, for at least 20,000 years of our recent Paleolithic history. Bone broth can be considered the perfect nutritional food substance, as it is power-packed with a synergistic blend of proteinaceous alchemy; an elemental combination of amino acids, various minerals, and other essential nutrients. Factually, as well as biologically, it is in our DNA! Including, providing fundamental nutritional support for about 38 trillion cells within our body. It is truly nature’s ultimate healing solution!

There’s no other food substance on our planet that can produce the same kind of amazing and potent while being completely scientifically backed, anti-inflammatory benefits, as can bone brothing; for both your body and brain. The current scientific think on the matter is that ‘inflammation’ is now considered the cause of most diseases. Therefore, anything that packs a powerful punch against ‘inflammation’ may just help you heal; while possibly even prolonging your life in the process.

Additionally, you should also know that ‘protein synthesis’, ‘DNA & RNA’ creation and repair, are at the core of our most basic and essential biological functions. Bone brothing supplies the basic raw ingredients that our bodies need in order to build and mend, grow and repair, soothe and heal; not to mention, replicate. Amazingly, within our bodies, this is an ongoing moment to moment process, one that requires the best ingredients for optimum results.

What you put in, matters! A high-end racing car isn’t going to win a race on regular fuel alone, it needs high-octane fuel; just like your body and brain in order to function optimally must also have the best ingredients; and, in the most bio-available and natural form. This is simply another reason why bone brothing is truly nature’s ultimate healing solution!

Here is another fact: No pharmaceutical drug or chemical/synthetic agent can ever come close to the amazing healing properties of this affordable natural food substance. First off, it contains zero side effects for people consuming it, unless of course, they eat too much too fast. Then diarrhea may result. :) Not surprisingly, most people may see results of consuming bone broth as soon as a matter of weeks, sometimes, even within days of beginning the bone broth protocol.

What is the Bone Broth protocol?

It’s essentially a life-sustaining formula that if precisely followed, will lead to some predictable and highly beneficial results, in both your body and brain. For optimum results, there should be ZERO substitutions. This formula and its attendant checklist must be followed to the letter, in order to get the best and biggest results!

Your health, your body, and your mood are greatly affected by what you eat; and most importantly, what you don’t eat, but should be eating. More on this later…

This protocol to work effectively must be based on natural and organic ingredients. Allow me to explain my strict and healthy guidelines. It’s up to you, how much of a purist you want to be, or can afford to be.

Bone broth is rather simple in terms of its basic ingredients; you have bones, water, apple cider vinegar, herbs and spices, and some vegetables, for added flavor. You should also know that not all bones or bone joints are created equal; some have more collagen, gelatin, and other amino acids. Therefore, it’s important to know your bones, if you’re looking to get the biggest bang out of your bone broth!

First, let’s look at some facts regarding these basic broth ingredients. Water, for example, should be purified water, spring water, clean water, and NOT tap water or bottled water. Why bother looking for better health if you’re just going to continue to pollute your body with dirty tap water, or use polluting, plastic bottles as your water source? Your body, your brain, your health, and the health of our environment should come first; way, way before profiteering corporate interests.

To make the best bone broth, requires clean water, from a reliable, trusted, and tested source. Your job is to create the best water you can drink and cook with, it’s that simple. Do what you must to produce or buy the best water for your bone broth. I could write volumes about the ‘truth’ regarding our tap water and our commercial water sources.

They are factually speaking, seriously dirty; full of hundreds, if not thousands of chemicals, some of which are potentially carcinogenic, mutagenic, and even teratogenic; regardless of their minuscule amounts, in terms of parts per million or billion. They, over time, can wreak havoc on our body and brain.  Don’t trust the reassurances of your local politicians as to the health and safety of our tap water. Ask them if they drink it. And, if they do, then they’re pretty ignorant of the facts regarding our tap water.

For example, most major city municipal water systems were built in the late 19th Century. They were primarily designed and based on primitive technology. They can’t purify our water; in other words, take out all the dangerous chemicals within our water supply; they can only hope to ‘dilute and disinfect’ it as much as possible, using chlorine and ultraviolet radiation as their weapons of choice.

Study after study, decade after decade, have proven that our municipal water test samples have only gotten worse; they contain more pollutants, and, at greater ‘parts per million or billion’ of these dangerous and deadly chemicals. I don’t trust our tap water. Therefore, I use a portable water purifier for drinking and cooking, as well as a shower water filter. I live in an apt.; if I lived in a home, I would purchase a complete home water purification system.

Now, for those of you that bathe in tap water while enjoying the warmth of a luxurious soak; keep this in mind, you’re actually sitting in a stew of chemicals that are leaching into your body, through your skin and lungs, even affecting your brain; killing brain cells in the process. Really! Chlorine is not healthy for your body or brain. Hot baths and hot showers produce a chlorine gas called chloroform. It is currently used in the medical industry as an anesthetic! Again, it is both dangerous and deadly.

Here’s my Ideal Bone Broth Checklist: I am a purist, and you should be too.

The cleanest water possible.

      The best bones possible.

Bones come in all shapes and sizes, and so do the joints that connect them. Not all bones or bone joints are created equal; some have more collagen, gelatin, and cartilage than others. Therefore, it’s important to know your bones, if you’re looking for specific amino acid benefits!

Like the best water, you also need the best bones that you can source for this broth. Now, here’s where things get interesting. Your choice of bones and joints will determine your benefits and results, or the lack thereof. We are dealing with the basic stuff of life within a bone or joint. It’s a mixed bag of proteins, in the form of amino acids.

Bones are basically made up of proteins and minerals; 60% of the weight of any bone is mineral, mainly calcium and phosphate.  Our bodies, down to our cells, even our DNA and RNA, are made up of amino acids. Proteins are the basic building blocks of life.

If you were to remove all the fat and water from a human body, the rest would be mostly made up of protein. Our muscle for example is 80% protein. Our muscles, bones, organs, skin, tendons, ligaments, and nails, are all made of different types of protein; mainly collagen; which is a particular type of protein that makes up approximately 30% of the proteins within the human body. It is essential for both structure and function. It is this collagen and the other essential amino acids, including the minerals and other micro-nutrients that are responsible for the healing benefits of bone brothing.

But, don’t just take my broth biased word for it, stay tuned for some amazing health challenging and health changing stories of people just like you that have used bone broth to heal, and perhaps even save their lives.

Stay tuned for part 2, where we delve even deeper into bone brothing and its amazing healing properties.

Why Execute Drug Dealers Dealing in Opiates?

Why execute drug dealers dealing in opiates? Sounds like the right thing to do, kill drug dealers that kill; yet, is it really the truthful way towards solving our drug epidemic, or is it just another fanciful misdirect, away from the apparently unsolvable Nations’ real drug problems and their source? 

Will killing drug dealers actually stop the epidemic in its tracks? Absolutely not! It is just a smoke screen, a distraction away from the truth. Why? Because drug dealers are the wrong target! What?
They are not the source of the epidemic!

Big Pharma and various Government agencies are actually the ones responsible for the current drug epidemic, and not the ‘supposed’ drug dealers!

Allow me to shed some light on the corruption and dangers lurking within our Government agencies, and their covert operations and drug dealing operatives.

Just do some basic research into our current drug epidemic.

Read some historical facts: Know the Truth!

If Trump thinks for one moment that killing drug dealers is the answer to America’s heroin and opiate crises, he should look no further than Afghanistan, which produces 90% of the world’s heroin. Killing a few drug dealers for 'show' is not the answer to solving the DRUG EPIDEMIC that has been sweeping across America for the past six-seven decades. Hasn’t anyone been paying attention? Or, do we just believe everything our Government tells us?

And, don’t think for one moment the Big Pharma companies haven’t contributed to the problem, and even exacerbated it, intentionally selling drugs, through sleight of hand, and even underhanded means. They helped fuel this opiate epidemic! 

Is this why New York City is currently suing Big Pharm for 500 million? Why aren’t they rounding up petty drug dealers looking to feed their own habits? As they already know, they must go after the SOURCE! Trump is the great mis-director, making headlines and misdirection through executions. It’s all just B.S., Government propaganda! Additionally, numerous U.S. States are also suing the distributors of these opiates, as the ones responsible; and NOT, by going after the ‘street’ drug dealers.

Wake up America, you are being lied to, tricked into believing that a few drug dealers that kill a few people, through overdose, here and there, are at fault? No, they are the fall-guys for the Government agencies, police corruption, and BIG Pharma, the ones actually responsible for this unstoppable drug epidemic, which is NOT limited to opiates; and, I am NOT talking marijuana!

Pharmaceutical drugs kill more people every year in America than all the drug dealers selling all their drugs combined! Just look at the statistics for yourself and see:

The Pharmaceutical’s own journal the ‘J Am Pharm. Assoc.’ 2001; 41:192-9, referenced a University of Arizona study that concluded, "The overall cost of US drug-related morbidity and mortality exceeded $177.4 billion in the year 2000, with over 200,000 deaths created annually". Now, that was almost twenty years ago!

Here’s something more recent, according to court documents and congressional hearings during the 2004 session, one drug alone, Vioxx, out of their pharmacopoeia of over 10,000 registered and marketable medications has been directly linked possibly to over 60,000 deaths; and millions injured, in just a five year period in the United States alone. Merck, its manufacturer, eventually settled out of court for a paltry 4.85 billion dollars.

Vioxx was their most significant seller; for five years from 1999 onwards it dominated the industry by sheer numbers alone. It made them billions of dollars a year. The big bonus for Merck in all of this was that they got to walk away; even after all the damage and death; and horrifically, continue to conduct ‘business as usual'!

I am not making this stuff up; and as I said, go look it up for yourself, the Truth is out there! At least now you know the truth! Executing drug dealers selling opiates will NEVER be the answer to our current drug epidemic!

Benefits of Drinking Bone Broth Daily

Benefits of Drinking Bone Broth Daily

Surprisingly enough, there are numerous benefits to drinking bone broth daily; mainly due to its many nutritional and therapeutic benefits contained within the broth. In truth, bone broth heals faster, cheaper, and better than any other natural remedy known to science or natural health. Without exaggeration, and based on thousands of years of anecdotal human history, I firmly believe that bone broth is the ultimate healing solution, for whatever ails you. Drinking bone broth daily can dramatically impact your life and health through its many wondrous and healing benefits.

Bone broth is an amber, rich liquid made primarily from beef, chicken, or fish bones that have been vigorously boiled in water; with some spices, vegetables, and a couple of tablespoons of apple cider vinegar thrown into the mixture; shortly thereafter, the heat is reduced and slowly simmered for 24-72 hours; allowing all the bones and marrow to fall apart within the broth, releasing its’ nutritionally packed minerals and proteins into this full-bodied stock.

Some of these liberated elements are collagen, elastin, gelatin, glycine, as well as other important amino acids; which, as we know, are the basic building blocks of our body and its’ structure.

Our skin, for example, is made up of about 70-80% collagen; not surprisingly, this ubiquitous proteinaceous substance exists everywhere in our bodies; as a matter of fact there are over 28 types of collagen; from our skin to our bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments, it is an essential part of our structure; whereas elastin, another by-product of collagen, is literally the glue that binds our bodies together; it is the substance that gives our skin its’ elasticity, while preventing wrinkles and sagging skin.

Historically speaking, our ancestors first started making stocks and fish soups about 15,000 years ago; based on the carbon dating of ceramic pots found in China and Japan. You see they knew healthy eating, even way back then, perhaps not consciously; but, we sure know now that if you cook in a container, the nutrients, proteins, oils, and fats are all retained, and immediately available for absorption and digestion. 

The pot below was used for cooking fish; salmon, based on the oil resins found within this particular vessel. Fishbone soup, fish stock, and fish broth were popular, as fish were easy to catch; more so, than chasing after a 6-ton, 12 foot high, woolly mammoth.

Depending on the type of bone used to make the broth, and aside from the benefits of all the proteins, and whatever other nutrients might be hiding in the marrow; bone broth is extremely high in a wide range of essential minerals our bodies need on a daily basis. For example, bones from animals are rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus, while fish bones are rich in iodine.

Recent research has also indicated that there are many benefits of bone broth for your gut, IBS symptoms, and other related conditions, as well as, for your joints, and associated inflammation. By drinking a cup or two of either homemade bone broth or powdered bone broth every day, you will begin to see some benefits over a few weeks or months, especially on your skin, joint pain and gut. You will just feel better all around.

Additionally, if you were to go on a 3-5 day bone broth fast, drinking only bone broth and purified water or spring water for those days, you would see even more dramatic and shorter-term results on your body and brain power. Without a doubt, bone broth also nourishes your brain. So make sure to drink bone broth every day.

Patience, Perseverance, and Endurance

In over sixty years of living, patience, perseverance, and endurance have always paid off for me. 

Persistence only pays off if you’re determined; and only if, you are on the ‘right’ purpose, your true purpose. Many years ago, make that almost a lifetime ago, I first heard these magical words of wisdom from my Tai Chi Chuan teacher Johnny O, “Patience, Perseverance, and Endurance.”

Nearly fifty years later, I am still in awe, about the meaning and integrity behind those three powerful words.

In life, in any situation, or within any relationship; patience is not only a virtue, it is an essential force for peace, compassion and mutual understandings; because, it is only through patience that we can master the soulful art of ‘acceptance’, of anything and everything around us, or within us, sometimes, that may even be raging like a fiery inferno. 

Patience keeps us whole and keeps us sane; patience is the ultimate way to an understanding of life. To survive, you, we, all must have patience. You see, death is enforced patience; at that point, we have no choice and no other freedom, other than, ‘patiently’ being dead!

Patience allows us to experience Life naturally unfolding, without our emotional baggage and negative considerations clouding the way of our personal development; our individual search for meaning, and our quest for the truths of our existence. Patience allows Life to reveal what we need to know in order to evolve, move on to the next step of our ‘living and learning’ experience. 

Patience also allows us to grow beyond our own expectations and limitations; for you see, patience reveals truths like no other; it allows for NO time aberration. Patience allows for infinity to infinitely unfold. Giving us the courage, hope, and future, of a life full-filled with happiness and joy; because, we are infinitely patient, and patiently believe in each other. Patience=Survival….In every way!

Perseverance, allows us like patience, to keep going, despite ‘everything’ else to the contrary; notwithstanding any or every obstacle, barrier, or even, mental consideration in our path. Infinite perseverance allows for nothing, ever, to get in your way, NOTHING! With perseverance comes an understanding of yourself and that of Life; as you can observably see, Life persists, if nothing else! Perseverance also equals survival.

Finally, we come to endurance, the most valued and prized survival characteristic; without which, WE, would all be dead! Everything in Life is based on endurance. If you can’t endure you will not move ahead; and eventually, you will die. Obsolescence is the opposite of endurance. Look around you, in everything that you see, it is enduring; it is surviving, right there in front of your eyes. Life will always find a way to endure, as Life is all about endurance. Life is survival; endurance is surviving through anything and everything in our path, mentally, physically, and spiritually!

As you can see, these three powerful and wise words are a mantra for survival, in all of its many manifestations. Patient people live longer and get along better with others; perseverant people last longer at anything they attempt; while, people that can endure, anything and everything in their way; well, they will endure like a diamond, forever and ever…!

Is Your True Health The Most Important Activity In Your Life?

Your personal health should be the most important priority and activity in your life; even if you’re a parent, your health comes first; your well being must take precedence; otherwise, you will not be in any shape to take care of your kids; especially, if you’re seriously sick or dying. Each and every day of our lives, most of us, living anywhere on this planet, make poor food choices; buy foods that are adulterated with chemicals and other unsavory additives; some, contaminated with metals; others, denatured of their integral nutrients; and even others, genetically modified! 

These are INESCAPABLE happenings unless you eat organic and raw; and, you have a reliable source of uncontaminated and unadulterated foods!

For example, did you know that you can buy totally organic-verified and certified fruit or vegetables in the US; and they can be shown to be completely free of any harmful chemicals, pesticides, fertilizers, etc.; yet, they can still contain dangerous, even lethal amounts of metals; like lead, cesium, aluminum, mercury, and the list goes on…! 

Sure, there are ways to grow truly organic fruits and vegetables with negligible metal contaminants; but, it takes strict knowledge of organic farming; and knowing the land to be used and its history; including, most importantly, having a way to conclusively test the soil the produce is grown in for their harmful metallic levels; as well as, the produce itself and their by-products.

This technological marvel does exist; and, so do the alternative thinking pioneers that have produced them….

To be finally able to detect precisely what’s in our foods is in our best interest; especially, if it shows gaping flaws in our Food Industry-from the farm to our table. Rest assured; your family can finally eat healthy and safe, from any harmful contaminant. For example, “Every product sold by the Health Ranger Store has been extensively tested in the ConsumerWellness Center Labs using ICP-MS atomic spectroscopy instrumentation and is Verified Low Heavy Metals. Headed by Mike Adams ("The Health Ranger"), the Lab developed a rating system that represents a new standard in consumer food safety, and the Health Ranger Store carries only those products rated "A" and above.”

Honestly, truthfully, and factually, it is one of the highest rated labs for this type of investigation and analysis; helping you and your family be safe, proving once and for all, what’s exactly in your foods! I need to ask, is your true health the most important activity in your life?

An Essay on The Rights of Medical Marijuana Patients

We are sick, some of us are dying; we have been neglected by our community, our Government, and our laws; we have been betrayed, denied and disavowed. We are forgotten! Politicians posture, as our police sworn to ‘serve and protect’, can only feel like puppets, being pulled by their Masters’ strings; by those that want to control the conversation; far, far away from ‘care and compassion’; especially, for those that are currently physically suffering, because they no longer have free and easy access to their own, lifesaving, and medically prescribed marijuana.

It’s NOT all about recreational use; it’s also NOT about the legalities or the lack thereof; it’s truly only about one thing…the rights of medical marijuana patients to their health and longevity. We want to live our lives, free of pain and suffering; free of shame and guilt, from what others may think regarding our own health needs and initiatives, and our need for this so-called ‘marijuana drug’! What works for me, to ease my pain and suffering works for me. If it works for others, many others, it’s even better; as we can all get better together.

In any free country, free of tyranny and mass control; sick people are allowed to access health care for their needs as they need it and when they need it; freely, easily and effortlessly. They are sick; some are dying, and most are suffering, daily, continuously, despite their best intentions to heal themselves of their infirmities, diseases, and cancers. 

These are the people that we as politicians, community citizens, police and legal representatives, are affecting with our abject neglect, insane health policies, and contradictory laws. These are the poorest and the sickest in our society that we are punishing for the sake of what? Political sleight of hand posturing, and for what, the God Almighty Dollar? For the sake of Greed and Social Control, over our sick and dying? Is this really what’s going on behind the scenes?

No sick human being, especially one who is seriously ill and suffering in pain and discomfort, should ever be denied access to medical care when they need it the most. That should be a basic medical right; and a protected right by our laws, by our politicians, and our police. Yet, they’ve betrayed us! 

These recent raids on the medical marijuana dispensaries have had a devastating effect on the lives and wellbeing of thousands of medical marijuana patients across the GTA; as we no longer have access to what we need, to help ease our pain and constant suffering. Days have gone by, and without any consideration to our needs; as the newspapers, police, and politicians argue endlessly about everything, except what matters most in our own lives, our sickness and suffering; and most importantly, our need to access our medication NOW!

Will you please stand up for our medical rights as marijuana patients! Make your voice felt; help us access our medicine NOW!

As Human Beings How Long Can We Expect to Live?

What are the outer-limits for us as human beings, how long can we actually expect to live? Biblically and historically, there have been numerous spectacular claims of longevity; hundreds of years, up to 1000+ years; if we are to believe oral tradition. More recently though, in this century and last century, there have been too many documented cases of longer life for us to simply ignore; one 122 year old; a 131 year old; a 156 year old; a 160 year old; and even, a multiple-verified report of a 256 year old herbalist and martial artist from China! These reports are not just anecdotal or based on folklore; they have been verified by other people living, as well as, by now dead.

Japan has 60,000+ Centenarians at present; whereas, the U.S. has about 150,000; while the rest of the world, about another 100,000+ total! The trend, therefore, is obvious, we are living longer! Not surprisingly, Cambridge University geneticist Aubrey de Grey has already stated, “ The first person to live to be 1,000 years old is certainly live today…whether they realize it or not, barring accidents and suicide, most people now 40 years or younger can expect to live for centuries.”

Historically speaking, this field of study has already been stained by the boisterous claims and suspicious offerings of too many magical, anti-aging elixirs. People have become resistant to these fabricated claims. Recently though, with today’s technologies, scientists studying longevity have focused on molecular research, using powerful genomic markers; isolating, genetically distinct communities of people to gain further insight into the problems of old age, and how it can be avoided! Independent studies in Calabria, Ecuador, Hawaii, even the Bronx, are turning up molecules and chemical pathways that may help all of us reach a ‘new’ level of old age while remaining active, vibrant and healthy, at 100 and beyond!
The common denominator for these longer lives is not ‘geographical location’; as they exist in isolated pockets all over the globe. Their main similarities are with their diets and activity; rich in organic fruit and vegetables; they were hard working; free from drugs, alcohol and tobacco; lived on a restricted meat diet; ate mainly fish or seaweed diet; including, having a source of clean fresh water; and finally, physically free from major pollutants. Now, these people are surviving well into their 100’s; and, without any kind of medical, genetic, bio-medical, bi-engineered, or molecular assistants. NONE!

So, don’t be surprised if you are the one who may live to be 150 years old; after all, as health-conscious human beings, how long do we really expect to live?
