Bone Broth, Back Pain, Sciatica Healing Remedies

Bone Broth, Back Pain, Sciatica Healing Remedies

In the on-going search for healing for my husband’s bulging discs and resulting back pain and sciatica, we’ve learned a lot about healing remedies. I shared several of the remedies with you earlier.  I’m sharing more now in hopes that you will be helped if you suffer from pain as well.

Hydration is extremely important

My husband’s chiropractor could tell from John’s X-rays that he has not been drinking enough water.  His discs look dark and they should be light.  He has prescribed 80 ounces of water a day, which he’s working up to starting with about 70 ounces.  He measures it out in the morning in a pitcher and makes sure that he drinks the entire pitcher of purified water each day.

Bone broth to the rescue

Bone broth is rich in the amino acids glycine and proline which help to build muscle, repair tissue, and lessen inflammation. It offers glycosaminoglycans which support collagen and elastin that make up the spaces between bones and various fibers. Also, GAGs support digestive health since they help repair intestinal lining; a deficiency in these nutrients has been linked to digestive challenges. It offers glucosamine and chondroitin—nutrients that act as a pain reliever for joints. There are two main types of naturally occurring glucosamine—hydrochloride and sulfate. Both support the integrity of cartilage— the rubbery substance within joints that acts as a natural cushion. It supplies hyaluronic acid which supports connective tissue. Studies show that glucosamine can become depleted as we get older. Studies show that the gelatin in both broths provides almost immediate relief to joint pain and the glycine speeds wound healing and promotes recovery. It also provides collagen, which is the gel-like, smooth structure that covers and holds our bones together, allowing us to glide and move freely.

After the first few cups of bone broth, John started experiencing pain-free mornings.  Though he is not without pain, he’s getting better.

    Hi Cherie. My husband has lower back pain. His doctor put him on pain medication which he takes morning and night but its only treating the symptoms. I told him about glucosamine and he did start taking it and he says it helps. I’d like to know if you’ve shared a recipe for bone both. Would you use beef bone and what would you suggest I add to the both besides seasonings. Should that simmer for a couple of hours? I sure would like to see him get off of those pain meds.
    Thanks

    Hi Cherie! 🙂

    Does the bone need to be any specific kind of animal? Is there a certain amount of time that the bones should cook? Are these raw bones or just from a previous cooked meal?

    Thank you for your time and help! 🙂

    Sincerely,

    Kimberlina

    • grass fed from cattle or free range chicken bones. Simmer 24 hrs.

  6. Hi Cherie,

    Thanks

    • Either bones from grass fed cattle or chicken bones from free range chickens. I put onion and a carrot in my broth with salt and herbs.
