Is there as much calcium in a cup of bone broth as in a cup of milk? Many people in the Real Food community seem to think so.

The hard truth is that the calcium content of homemade bone broth doesn’t even come close. The good news is that broth still lives up to its bone-building reputation, just not for the reason most people have assumed.

It makes logical sense that bone broth would be an excellent source of calcium. After all, about fifty percent of bones consist of minerals, with the largest store by far being calcium phosphate, a combination of calcium and phosphorous arranged in a formation called hydroxyapatite. Bone also contains small amounts of magnesium, sodium, potassium, sulfur and other trace minerals.

FCLO dosage recommendations

By Dr. David Levi ND

I first came across fermented cod liver oil when I became frustrated with my 6 year old son’s dental health. I took him to a conventional dentist and all they had to offer was anesthetics and drilling. I knew something deeper was wrong because my 4 other kids didn’t have as much tooth decay as him.

I did a lot of research and saw how there was a connection between his teeth and the overall health of his body. He was lacking in some serious nutrients that were causing his body to leech these important nutrients from his teeth.

I finally came to the conclusion that fermented cod liver oil was something I needed to try. Read more…

Warning: Running a Marathon Can Seriously Harm Your Health

by Fitness Editor Paula Jager, CSCS Owner of Crossfit Jaguar April 19, 2014


Have you ever noticed that the marathon runners in the Olympics look like concentration camp victims?

Have you ever wondered why marathons are considered “healthy” in our society yet the first man that ever ran one collapsed and died immediately after?

Yeah, and Pheidippides was fit too, likely selected for his job as a herald due to his speed and distance running ability – not some ancient Greek version of the modern couch potato.

Five Steps to Heal IBS Naturally

by Craig Fear, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner April 16, 2014

Heal IBS
As a certified Nutritional Therapist who specializes in digestive issues, I was recently asked to appear on a local TV show and talk about irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a functional bowel disorder that is becoming increasingly common, if not epidemic, in our society.

IBS is becoming so common that you probably know someone who suffers with it.  About  10-15% of Americans are diagnosed with IBS though the majority don’t seek help for it.  They just learn to live with it.

The great news is that there’s a lot you can do to help relieve the symptoms of IBS naturally with food.

In my guest TV appearance, I shared five basic tips that can help heal IBS in many cases.   Now there’s only so much I could say in five minutes.  So after the video below I will expand on those tips.

These five tips are a great starting point if you or someone you know suffers with IBS. Read more…

Pollen is Not The Problem

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist April 15, 2014

Spring has sprung in full force in my neck of the woods, and wow, is the pollen ever thick!

Sounds of people sneezing and blowing their nose fill the pollen laden air with boxes of tissue flying off the shelves fast and furious in pharmacies all across town.

While pollen does indeed make you sneeze if you get a noseful of it, is it really necessary to dread spring every single year knowing that Visine and allergy meds will be your constant companion to deal with watery eyes and congestion for at least a month or two?  Is this something you just have to resign yourself to and live with?
