How To Make Bone Broth

How To Make Bone Broth💫💫

Ingredients:
-2 pounds of chicken, turkey, pork, beef, lamb, or other bones (try to get bones that have lots of connective tissue such as feet, knuckles, necks, back, etc)
-1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
-4 cups roughly chopped carrots, onions, and celery
-2 bay leaves
-1/2 tsp peppercorns
-1 tsp sea salt
-Filtered water

Instructions:
In a large soup pan, place the bones, apple cider vinegar, vegetables, bay leaves, peppercorns, and salt.
Fill pot with filtered water until it covers the bones by an inch.
Bring to a simmer over medium heat, then reduce heat to as low as your stove will go, while still bubbling slightly. Cover with lid (slightly ajar.)
Cook for 24 hours for poultry bones or 48 hours for red meat bones. If cooking overnight makes you nervous, you can place the whole pot (covered) in the fridge and continue cooking in the morning.
When cooking time is finished, strain the broth and transfer to mason jars. Store bone broth in the fridge or freezer. Enjoy!

Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth Causes

Dr. Alison Vandekerkhove from A New Leaf Naturopathic Clinic explaining the common causes of Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, also known as SIBO.

SIBO is caused when the bacteria from the large intestine can migrate into the small intestine or even into the stomach. This migration of the bacteria is what actually causes the issue. In our system, we have an MMC (migrating motor complex) which works like a dishwasher. After we’ve eaten the MMC rinses through our system to keep the bacteria at bay. Anything that causes the bacteria to move or the MMC to stop working properly can cause SIBO.

Common causes include general flu’s (with diarrhea and vomiting), chronic concussions, low stomach acid, and abdominal surgeries.
