Healing Power of Broth, the Traditional Cure for Arthritis
By Jorge Catalán and Victoria Schneider
A South American proverb claims, “Good broth will resurrect the dead.” While that’s clearly an exaggeration, chicken soup has enjoyed a reputation as “Jewish penicillin,” and bone broths are served to convalescents all over the world. In this presentation, Dr. Kaayla Daniel will review the science that supports consuming bone broth for healthy bones, joints, skin, digestion, immunity, and emotional stability. She will discuss 19th- and early 20th-century studies on gelatin, as well as more recent investigations into the “conditionally essential” amino acids proline, glycine, and glutamine, Finally, she will report on Dr. John F. Prudden’s clinical trials on healing osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, psoriasis, Crohn’s, wounds, and even cancer with cartilage. In short, much science supports the ancestral wisdom of consuming bone broth.
