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.

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.(...)

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.

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.(...)

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?

The Nourished Kitchen Cookbook
I am so excited to announce that tomorrow is the release date of a cookbook that anyone who values the time tested principles of Traditional Cooking will want to have on hand in the home library:

The Nourished Kitchen: Farm-to-Table Recipes for the Traditional Foods Lifestyle

Jenny McGruther, food blogger and soon to be award winning, best selling author, took two full years to write this cookbook.  I chatted with Jenny frequently throughout that time, and this cookbook she has produced is nothing short of a gift to humankind and in particular, mothers who wish to raise healthy children in a processed foods world with the deck stacked against them in every way imaginable..

The recipes Jenny created for The Nourished Kitchen weren’t just conceived in her home, however, they were inspired by the gardens, fields, orchards and farmers she visited all around the world that formed the basis of her research.

Every aspect of the time tested, ancestral principles of food gathering and preparation is covered in The Nourished Kitchen. In fact, more than 160 recipes are packed into this cookbook with writing and photography to nourish the eyes and the heart, not just the belly.

By Dr. Sylvia Onusic

Celiac Disease is an autoimmune disease, not a food allergy, which affects infants, children and adults and results in a permanent intolerance to gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley.

Celiac disease is a common disorder and about 1% or more of North Americans may develop it and it can occur at any age. With celiac progression, there is increasing damage to the villi of the small intestine, which are responsible for uptake of nutrients, leading to nutrient- related diseases such as osteoporosis, malabsorption syndromes, anemia, even lymphoma and other cancers. 1-2

Celiac is an inherited disease which can show up because of a variety of different conditions. The most important factor in preventing development of celiac in at-risk babies is breastfeeding up to a year or more, especially upon first exposure to gluten.(...)

Is Social Services emerging as the new “SS” of the West?

Those of you familiar with twentieth century history will understand the reference to the Schutzstaffel or SS, which is German for ”Protective Echelon”.  During World War II, the SS was one of the most powerful and feared organizations of the Axis Alliance, believing its members to be the elite of humankind.

It would seem so given the horrific stories of human rights abuse at the hand of social workers, such as the recent story where Social Services obtained a court order to sedate and surgically remove a baby from a pregnant mother’s womb without her knowledge or consent because she had a panic attack brought on by missed medication.

Now, another story of Social Services out of control has emerged from Jackson, Wisconsin, where social workers instigated the arrest and illegal imprisonment of 28 year old Alicia Beltran, a pregnant mother-to-be after a routine prenatal visit.

One of most misguided and damaging pieces of advice coming from the vast majority of pediatricians, dieticians, and other “experts” is to give baby rice cereal as the first food around the age of 4-6 months.  This advice is extremely harmful to the long term health of the child, contributing greatly to the epidemic of fat toddlers and the exploding problem of childhood obesity.

Rice cereal is never a healthy first food for babies. Not only is it an extremely high glycemic food when eaten alone (spikes the blood sugar) but it also contains ample amounts of double sugar (disaccharide) molecules, which are extremely hard for such an immature digestive system to digest. The small intestine of a baby mostly produces only one carbohydrate enzyme, lactase, for digestion of the lactose in milk. It produces little to no amylase, the enzyme needed for grain digestion until around age one.
