Tucson Acupuncture shares– The Ancient Facts about Bone Broth per Traditional Chinese Medicine

Tucson Acupuncture shares– The Ancient Facts about Bone Broth per Traditional Chinese Medicine

Best Acupuncture in tucson

By- Sherry Tejada Tucson Acupuncture Office Manager

Bone Broth or Bone Marrow Broth, it’s a good natural medicine. For 20 years our Tucson Acupuncturist Juan Tejada has shared his recipe with thousands of his acupuncture patients.
Recently- a wave of Bone Broth products have come out on the market. This has created some confusion to what is the best for our patients.  Juan says 1st and foremost recommends:

1-      Natural real beef bones with marrow prepared into his broth recipe and then used in soups or consumed as liquid/broth are the absolute best way to get all the nutrition and health benefits.

      Note VERY IMPORTANT:  Juan’s Bone Broth recipe uses Traditional Chinese Medicine’s ancient knowledge of using lime/lemon juice to boil the bones to extract the calcium from the bones.... and uses 3 key ingredients to take out the acidity from the beef bones.

2-      Do not use chicken bones- they are too hot according to Traditional Chinese Medicine food energetics - especially for women.

3    Because many patients kept asking for processed pre-packaged products to use in a pinch….We decided to research and contact two highly advertised Bone Broth suppliers of pre-made bone both products for a confirmation of their ingredients.

Quite a surprise for me was - I didn’t know that I would need to ask what kind of bones they use for making their Beef Bone Broth (ie:  Bones from Chicken, beef, etc…)

YEP! You guessed it- one of them doesn’t even use beef bones at all to make their bone broth products – including their beef flavored product!!!

I gave up in all good conscience to recommend any as they have been industrialized and it's so easy to make your own and more economical. 

Questions to ask are:
  1. What animal are the bones from?
  1. Asking if they contain any marrow in them before they process is a must too. 
  1. Were the bones form the animals 100% grass fed and grass finished? (no corn or feed lot at any pat of the life of the animal)
  1. Did they process the bones with lemon or lime juice or vinegar? And for a lengthy period of time?
  1. Also note any chemical names or flavorings, spices that are not named or any use of sweeteners should not be listed in the ingredients.

So needless to say- There are no shortcuts to good health! Just take a little time and do it! Make the real deal and gain the health benefits. YOU ARE WORTH IT!

  3 easiest ways to cook your bone marrow bones:

1-     Electric pressure cooker with a timer (no evaporation and only 4 hours on high temp) Note; the Longer you cook them the more your leach the good stuff out from them. We usually set our Electric pressure cooker on the canning setting and cycle it several times for about 6 hrs and then overnight on slow cooking setting for 12 hours. 
2-     Slow cooker- 12 hours approx. (monitor water levels)
3-     On the side burner of your grill (boil 3-4 hours monitor water levels)
4-     On your stove top ( boil 3-4 hours monitor water levels)
(Hint:  I prefer to cook outside – keeping my home free from food odors from the above 3 examples.)
