As you know I am all about prevention so it is best to do a little bit of something every day or rather than once or twice a year. Growing up, my mom would make this great broth couple times a week to cleans the body during Spring time (sometimes just because!).
Pork Bone Broth Soup
This soup detoxifies and provides nutrition to the body.
- 1 pound of pork bone (it is neutral in temperature) For example, lamb is hot, beef is warm and pork is neutral so it is best for making soup.
- 1 bunch of watercress
- 2-3 carrots
- 2-3 green diakon
- 10 cups of water
Bring to boil and simmer for a hour. Enjoy the broth either before dinner or anytime you like!
Bonus, you may even have a great bowel movement.
Keep in mind, detoxing once or twice a year may be too harsh for some individuals, especially if one has health issues. If you are planning to go through a serious cleanse, please find a practitioner to guide you through the process. Many people miss the step of filling the body with nutritious food after the elimination process, but this very important step is how our bodies can heal. After a cleanse, slowly build the body with nutritious dense food. Our body can't run on an empty tank and that's why, without proper post cleanse nutrition, elimination can be harmful.
