To learn more about the health benefits of bone broth soup, read Kristina Amelong's Ten Days to Optimal Health. The healing program in Kristina's book includes the nutritional research work of Dr. Weston A. Price. As a dentist, Dr. Price studied the diets of 14 traditional societies during the 1930s and 1940s. His goal was to understand what makes human beings healthy, allowing them to have perfect teeth. The foods Kristina recommends are the traditional foods that gave health to the populations that Price researched.

Every single one of the cultures that Dr. Weston A. Price studied used bones to make soup broth. Because of this, we recommend that you eat bone broth soup, which is an excellent source of gelatin.

Gelatin is a mixture of peptides and proteins found in bones and released into the soup broth when you boil the bones. It is the richest source of a key amino acid called glycine. In fact, gelatin consists of 27% glycine. This amino acid is a key player in phase I detoxification and it is also one of the three amino acids which form glutathione (phase II detoxification). Glycine is also used in the synthesis of creatine (the energy manager) and bile salts. Glycine supplementation has been linked to a reduced risk of asthma and can be used to prevent muscle wasting during fasting. If you have anal fissures, a daily cup of bone broth will decrease your healing time and reduce the chances of the fissure returning.

You won't find a lot of science about bone broth soup (there isn't money to be made in it), but you do find science about shark cartilage. Obtained from the spiny dogfish shark and hammerhead shark, shark cartilage is promoted as a dietary supplement to treat cancer, arthritis, osteoporosis, Kaposi sarcoma, macular degeneration, psoriasis, and inflammatory disorders such as prostatitis, Candida albicans, and IBS.

Shark cartilage extracts show antiangiogenic and antitumor activities in vitro and in animal models, but clinical use remains controversial due to lack of bioavailability data and unsatisfactory patient outcomes in clinical trials.

The evidence is abundant: bone broth soup is a highly therapeutic food choice.

(Clinically, we find the diet laid out in Ten Days to Optimal Health brings about greater and more consistent health changes than a straight paleo diet tends to do.)

Young Living Essential Oils and "Disease Claims"

You may have heard about the recent letter sent by the FDA to Young Living regarding claims made by a few Young Living members. The claims of particular concern to the FDA were claims that implied that Young Living products may be effective in diagnosing, curing, or preventing the Ebola virus. With the spread of the Ebola virus in Africa and the recent case in Dallas, Texas, this topic is garnering a great deal of attention.

Young Living and the FDA are now requiring that all sources of information regarding Young Living oils do not make health-related claims that can't be backed up by FDA-approved scientific studies. Unfortunately, even though the scientific literature is full of studies showing the therapeutic benefits of essential oils, many of these studies aren't FDA-approved.

Young Living is working on an list of FDA-approved studies, but this list has not yet been released. In the meantime, the Optimal Health Network will be working on never claiming or suggesting that Young Living products can cure, alleviate, treat, prevent, or diagnose a disease, symptom, or injury. These types of claims are called "disease claims."

Conditions generally considered to be diseases include: colds, flu, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, heart attacks, HIV, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, allergies, tooth decay, impotence, seizures, asthma, attention deficit disorder, ulcers, burns, mild abrasions, bruises, scars, head lice, obesity, anxiety, and depression. Many, many others belong on this list, but there isn't enough space for all of them here!

Choosing which oils are best for you and your family can be a difficult endeavor due to all the choices available. I recommend that you spend some time researching for yourself. A great place to begin your research is the archives of the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health at PubMed.

If you need further support choosing which Young Living oils are right for you, please set up a consultation. We will use our collective experience of over 30 years of study and clinical practice to assist you to choose the Young Living essential oil protocol that provides ideal support for your body.
