I felt my gut and whole body very inflamed. After a doctor's visit, I was informed that I had colitis. I was told it could worsen and become Ulcerative Colitis if not addressed.
It was affecting me to the point, that many times I would have no choice but to stay behind on outings and events that had been planned for months.
I was so sad, every time I had to stay behind. I thought to myself, there has to be a natural alternative to help myself.
I began on a research journey on how to better my health. I learned about how our ancestors and warriors would remain strong and healthy; by consuming something called Bone Broth.
I was willing to try anything as an alternative to medication, & so it began.
Convinced and determined, I decided to give bone broth a try. Unfortunately thru my discovery journey... I found that the bone broths that I encountered, were not very effective.
I wasn't ready to give up though. Upon further research, I learned how to make it myself. I decided to use only the cleanest of bones. All Natural Grass Fed/Finished. I made sure it was concentrated and not diluted.
In addition, I included Ginger & Turmeric for the extra benefits! and lastly, I didn't take shortcuts... I let it simmer for 48 hrs.
I began consuming a cup of my homemade bone broth a day.
Immediately, I noticed a difference in my energy; although that’s not why I was taking it. The real change came approximately 2 months after daily consumption.
My digestive system improved greatly. I was able to eat foods that previously would cause major inflammation and pain. I also started losing unhealthy weight, unintentionally. Again, that wasn't my reason for drinking it, but it was a nice plus & my iron levels came back up to normal. I even started to feel motivation to work out, which I hadn't done in years! I just felt better in general! I no longer had to stay behind!
I realized at this point, quality DOES matter.
I've been so amazed with the benefits, I don't skip a day! I BrothMyBones every day!
As others noticed the great change in me and my husband (read his story next) I began to receive many requests for bone broth. These were busy people with little time to spare, and just needed and wanted something of quality that was quick to consume and could help make them feel better but without any hassle!
And so the word began to spread by people sharing with others; the benefits they were experiencing and so on!
Before we realized..... BrothMyBones was born!
However, my wife is someone with strong faith, and combining that with determination makes for a perfect bone broth recipe!
I was so impressed with her health progress and her energy level, that I finally decided to try it for energy purposes. She had been drinking this bone broth for quite some time now and always offered me some, but I was not interested at all, so I kept passing it up!
I myself, wasn't the healthiest but I never really was too concerned about my health anyway. I was 280 lbs, always sluggish, no energy but I had gotten used to my life as it was. Just slow pace as my body would allow.
Finally, I gave in one day. I was so exhausted we had gotten back from an outing and Lili was preparing herself a cup of her bone broth. She offered me a cup, and for the first time I said yes.
I started sipping on it, as I dreaded cleaning up the garage, which we had agreed on prior to our outing that morning.
I don't even know how long after I finished drinking it, but Lili walked into the garage about an hour later and couldn't believe how much I had done in the garage already!
I realized as she was questioning me about the bone broth and about how I liked it, that I actually felt very alert. Not tired at all. It wasn't like a crazy energy boost, it was more like just very awake and alert! It felt good to feel that way! and as bonus... it wasn't bad tasting like I expected!
The next day, I had it again and every day after that! I was really enjoying that steady energy feeling. I made it my breakfast drink, instead of coffee in the morning, I drank my bone broth on my way to work. I noticed it gave me a full feeling but without the heavy bloating feeling. I was not getting hungry as early as usual, and when I did eat, I ate less because I just was not as hungry.
All of the sudden just out of nowhere, my pants were lose around my waist! So now, I'm really excited!!! I was not expecting this broth to help me out like that! and it only got better! The weight kept coming off, this was without me working out at the time! The awesome thing about it, is that I was dropping the weight but still felt strong!
I just made it my daily routine. Six months into it, I went from 280 lbs. to 222 lbs. and my weight has stayed consistent since.
I haven't been 222 lbs. since I was a youngster! I'm loving life, and enjoying a healthier way of living now!
I'm more active now, then when I was in my 20s! I wish I had taken that cup my wife offered the first time! I would have felt and seen the difference much sooner, but its never to late to get started on a healthier journey. I'm so glad I finally took that cup!
Thank you my wifee, for always offering me a cup of your bone broth, even though I kept saying No!
