Bone Broth

When Liam's tummy is really bothering him or when he is in a flare up my go to is ALWAYS Bone Broth. It heals a leaky gut because the gelatin in bone broth protects and heals the mucosal lining of the digestive tract and helps aid in the digestion of nutrients. It fights inflammation in that it is very high in the anti-inflammatory amino acids glycine and proline. It also helps with bone formation, growth and repair. The calcium, magnesium and phosphorus in bone broth helps our bones to grow and repair. 

I use the broth for just drinking hot when he isn't feeling well or if were sick with colds. I will also make Chicken Soup with the chicken and add lots of yummy vegetables like carrots, celery, green beans, onion, etc...

Gut-Healing Chicken Broth Recipe


  • 1 organic whole chicken

  • 8 c of water

  • 4 -6 stalks of celery, finely chopped

  • ½ white or yellow onion, finely chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 inch ginger root, finely chopped

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

  • ½ teaspoon of apple cider vinegar

  • 2 Organic carrots chopped


Place all of the above ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low heat for 8 -10 hours.

I like to cook mine until the meat is falling away from the bones.

I make this just before bed and it’s ready and hot for breakfast.

You can store any excess broth in the freezer and defrost for a later time.
