Popular & Safe Support Tools:

 

 

1.  Vinegar Tonic - great wellness tool that is safe, cheap, easy and gentle.  Ancient medicine used globally for 1,000's of years.  The only potential downside is that it tastes like vinegar.

Basic Protocol

12 oz of fresh water, cold or room temp

1-2 tsp of unfiltered, unpasturized raw vinegar*

  • Mix together and drink often, especially during exertion

  • Can option to add a splash of juice or honey for flavor

  • Can option to use as a base in a cold-infusion recipe (will cover in the future)

(*Usually Apple Cider Vinegar or Coconut Vinegar.  Bragg's and Coconut Secret both make a great product.)

 

2.  Congee - soothing and gentle base foodstuff that can be sweet or savory.

Basic Protocol

3/4 cup of long-grain white rice*

9 cups of fresh water

1 tsp of sea salt salt

  • Bring the water and rice to a boil.

  • Simmer covered on med-low heat so just a small amount of steam releases.

  • Stir occasionally to prevent clumping and sticking.

  • Cooks for about 1 to 1 & 1/2 hours depending upon desired consistency

  • Can option to use brown rice - cooking time is increased to 2-3 hours

(Great additions include South River Miso, homemade bone broth and Ohsawa Nama Shoyu)

 

3.  Bonebroth - nutritious and restoring superfood that makes a great base.

Basic Protocol

Large stockpot or crockpot.

Your preferred animal bones filling about a fifth of the pot.

  • Fill with fresh water, leaving about a quarter of the volume for boiling.

  • Bring to a boil and add a 2-6 Tbsp of apple cider vinegar to stimulate bone breakdown.

  • Simmer covered on a low boil for at least 4-6 hours.

  • May be cooked longer, up to 48 hours, if you continually add fresh water. (chicken and fish bones disintegrate within 24 hours)

  • Avoid spice, salt or seasoning.  Add these when you use the bone broth in other recipes.
