Bone Broth Recipe
Just as a reminder, bone broths are very effective towards improving your health and encouraging tooth mineralization and should be included in your diet on a daily basis.
- Bones—from chicken, fish, shellfish, beef, lamb
Regular bones are fine. But ideally for chicken use chicken feet and heads. For beef and lamb knuckle bones work very well. For fish having the head with the carcass is ideal.
- Cover the bones with water
- Add two tablespoons of vinegar (any type) per quart of water
- Vegetables such as carrots and onions can be added to soup stock
Making broth is not difficult. Put the bones in a pot, add water and vinegar to cover by a couple of inches and let it stand for 30-60 minutes. Bring the pot to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer. Remove any scum at the top of the broth with a spoon. Ideally simmer for 24-48 hours. As little as 6 hours will do. Strain the broth to remove the bones. The meat on the bones or marrow inside the bones is edible.
This is the original healing soup of Dr. Henry Bieler, which will help strengthen your glands and provide balance to a diet rich in animal foods.
1 pound of string beans, ends removed
2 pounds zucchini, chopped 1 handful of curly parsley*
Enough water to cover your veggies
Add all ingredients to rapidly boiling water and boil for 10-15 minutes, or until a fork easily pierces the zucchini skin. Purée using the cooking water (it is important to use this water as it contains vitamins and minerals) and make the soup to the consistency you desire.
This specific recipe is designed for healing when the body is ill. Feel free to modify this recipe by adding all kinds of different vegetables to make a soup to suit your personal needs.
*Pregnant and lactating women should limit their parsley intake as it dries up breast milk.
Eggnog Tooth-Strengthening Formula
For those who have difficulty absorbing nutrients from foods, organic or high-quality raw eggs will help heal this problem. The raw egg formula gave me food to eat when I was having difficulties digesting other types of foods. Combining raw eggs with raw milk ensures the maximum level of assimilation of nutrients from the raw milk. This mixture regenerates intestinal mucosa and helps heal leaky gut syndrome.
Try the following blend:
1 cup raw milk, kefir or yogurt 1-2 raw eggs
optional ingredients include:
2 ounces of raw cream
1/2 teaspoon raw honey, or organic maple syrup dash of nutmeg and cinnamon for flavor a drop or two of vanilla extract carob or chocolate powder
To enhance assimilation, have ingredients at room temperature.
Note: If you are pregnant and eating raw eggs, then for every five days of eating raw eggs, abstain for two days.
A word of warning. You may initially feel worse after eating raw eggs if you do not regularly eat them. Raw eggs can induce intense detoxification symptoms as your body cleanses. For example, on one occasion I ate raw farm-fresh eggs, and my body started to release and detoxify residues of Valium (a drug I had taken 15 years earlier for pain). I knew it was Valium because of its unmistakable feelings of nausea and disassociation, and I was violently ill for about one day as my body dumped the drug residues into my stomach. Afterward I ate the same eggs both raw and cooked without aversion or health problems.
Egg whites: Some people believe in only eating the egg whites. Others believe in eating only or mostly the egg yolks, and limiting their egg white intake because of the risk of possibly inducing a biotin deficiency. Eating only the yolk is an acceptable practice. My personal preference is to eat the whole egg.
Spicy Steak Tartare for Fighting Tooth Infections
This raw meat recipe was used to successfully heal a tooth infection.
1 pound raw ground pastured bison, beef, or Iamb
4 oz. of yellow butter
1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper or fresh spicy chilies
1 tablespoon of raw, unheated honey
Place butter, cayenne, and raw honey in a glass jar or bowl. Then immerse that bowl in a bowl of hot water that is not too hot. A double boiler turned on low will suffice. You must not raise the temperature of the food above 93 degrees Fahrenheit in order to preserve the enzymes. Once the butter/honey/cayenne mixture is melted, add the ground bison and stir. This is a healthy raw food dish.
If you try this recipe with cooked meat, your success rate will be greatly diminished.
Cayenne pepper is used in many natural healing remedies and can promote the healing of tooth infections.
Fish Head Soup
Fish head soup is a delicacy in many parts of the world. The basic concept of fish head soup is boiled fish heads and flavoring. This soup will be richer if prepared with fish stock, but it can also be prepared with water only. I chose a recipe here that does not retain the whole fish head, but when the head is floating in the soup it is much more fun.
1/2 to 2 pounds of fish heads. Remove the gills before making the soup and clean head thoroughly with water. Fill your soup pot with water just up to the heads or slightly below.
Simmer with 1-2 tablespoons of thinly sliced ginger for 15-30 minutes. Strain the broth.
Pick all of the meat and soft tissues off the bones. Anything that is soft is edible. Return the meat to the broth.
There are many variations of the soup. You can sauté any or all of the following with sesame oil, fish sauce or wine including onions, garlic, leeks, bamboo shoots, and red peppers. You can also add cabbage or other vegetables while the soup is cooking. Alternatively make a creamy soup with cream and potatoes like a fish head chowder.
Ayurvedic Green Drink
Many ancient traditions including Ayurveda believe that most vegetables need to be eaten cooked, not raw. This recipe provides the green goodness of vegetables with spices and calcium to provide a nutrient rich-smoothie or soup.
lA teaspoon natural salt
lA teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon garam masala
1 tablespoon of ghee
8 ounces of water
16 ounces of fresh vegetables
4 ounces of paneer raw or cooked (cheese curd)
- Make paneer.
- Add turmeric, salt, water, oil, and cook for 15 minutes.
- Add greens and masala and cover with glass top. Watch for brightness in the green color of the vegetables. When you see a rich brilliant green, stop cooking. Blend the vegetables with the paneer and serve with lime.
4 cups whole fresh milk
3-4 teaspoons of natural acid from fresh lime juice, lemon juice, or vinegar.
- Heat milk to just below boiling, stir often while heating. When the milk is just below boiling turn off the heat.
- Add acidic substance one teaspoon at a time while stirring. When you add the correct amount it will immediately curdle.
- Strain with cheese cloth or clean towel to separate curds from whey.
- Wrap curds in cloth and let it hang over a pot or bowl for one hour to remove the remaining liquid. The curds are paneer. You can further refrigerate and press it into little cheese blocks. You can use the whey for a drink by mixing it with lime or orange juice, or you can also add it to soups as a base.
If you want to use a raw dairy product with this smoothie, then you will want to sour milk by leaving it out in a glass jar for several days until the whey separates. Strain out the whey with a cloth. The solids of the soured milk can substitute as a paneer replacement but it won’t be as firm.
Poke (pronounced POH-kay) Fish Salad
1 pound fresh or sashimi-grade tuna, cut into small cubes 2-3 stalks of green onion chopped Y2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame seed oil
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
Splash of vinegar and salt and pepper to taste
Optional variations: 2 tablespoons olive oil, chili peppers finely minced, toasted sesame seeds, small pieces of celery, chunks of avocado, cucumber
In a large bowl, combine tuna, soy sauce, green onions, sesame oil, ginger, salt, and mix lightly. Cover and refrigerate two hours or more before serving to let the flavors blend. This can be served on a bed of lettuce.
I do not recommend using a microwave for cooking. Microwave ovens are the only cooking source that needs a shield. Yes, regular ovens have a heat shield, but you can still open them when they are operating and you will be fine. Studies show that microwaved food can pose a greater health risk than foods cooked by other conventional means. Also watch out for aluminum cookware. At home we use cast iron and high quality stainless steel cooking vessels. Other methods of cooking to retain flavor of the foods include clay pots and copper pots lined with tin. The copper pots are very expensive and if the tin coating is scraped and the copper is exposed to the food it can be toxic to use.
