If you are interested in using food as medicine, and creating meals and snacks that will positively impact your fertility, then you’ll definitely be interested in making bone broth. This is obviously not an option for vegetarians, but if you are open to the Traditional Food movement (a la Weston Price), this may be appealing to you, and it will certainly be appealing to your body, bones, brain & reproductive system. Bone broth will bolster your fertility and “Jing”. “Jing” is what practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine (doctors that utilize the over 3,000 year old Asian medical theories and practices of acupuncture, herbalism, nutrition, energy (qi) work and lifestyle balance) know is the kidney root & source energy that is necessary to produce good, high-quality eggs and sperm in order to conceive and give birth to a healthy, happy baby.
Besides building your Jing and filling the well of your reproductive reserve, having a bone broth mastered just as cold & flu season is around the corner may be you and your family’s key to avoiding repetitive sniffles and full-on, flu-related meltdowns. (It can also be a god-send during the upcoming darker, vitamin-D deficient season as it keeps on replenishing the deepest parts of our bodies, the bones, where our energy wants to hide out in the winter months.)
When our bones are nourished and strong, the body tends not to pull from these inner reserves when in emergency mode, under stress, during a day of poor diet or lack of exercise, or during pregnancy. Bone broth also helps prevent osteopenia & osteoporosis, so if this runs in the family, this should be a staple, especially for women.
Bone broth not only supports the deeper aspects of our bodies, including fertility, but it also gets the immune system up and running, strengthening that outer, protective layer called “wei qi”, what Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners call the protective barrier that decides what to let in and out – kind of like a bouncer for pathogens like bacteria, viruses & fungi.
This is a great broth to have when tonifying your system, including the reproductive system and especially egg quality…Enjoy and share the benefits of bone broth!
While consuming bone broth to add fertility may have some positive impact on your health and wellbeing, it’s also important to always follow a healthy diet (eat like you’re pregnant before you’re pregnant) and avoid foods that can hinder your ability to get pregnant.
