Broths are a traditional source of comfort, nourishment and healing throughout the world. Slow cooked bone broths, using ingredients from grassfed and pasture-raised animals, are famously calming to the digestive system, rich in gelatin and bioavailable nutrients, and aid in the body’s natural detoxification abilities. Infused bone broths and vegetable broths are a great way to incorporate additional nourishing and healing ingredients, such as turmeric and ginger, phytonutrients from greens, and the mineral riches of root vegetables.

The Benefits of Broth

Slow-cooked bone broths improve gut health and support digestion, support the body’s natural detoxification abilities, improve the health of your skin and joints and boost your immune system. Unlike many other types of cleanses and fasts, this fast actually replenishes the body while giving organs a break from their daily workload. The electrolytes and minerals in both the broths and beverages will help prevent dehydration as you go about your day.

Bone broth provides highly-bioavailable amino acids and protein, particularly collagen and gelatin. You won’t lose muscle during this Detox, and you will likely lose some fat.

Bone broth is especially high in the following amino acids:

  • Proline--main amino acid that tightens and tones our skin and tissues—including our gut wall and intestinal linings

  • Glycine--supports detoxification and blood sugar regulation by the liver, improves oxygen flow through the blood, especially during exercise, and helps reduce homocysteine levels

  • Glutamine--supports gut repair and provides energy to the immune system

  • Arginine--supports circulation and hormone cleansing

 Properly made bone broth (slow-cooked with some vinegar added to acidify the water) is rich in potassium, which helps flush waste and toxins out of the cells, as well as calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus and zinc.

Broth is high in glucosamine and chondroitin, which support joint health, as well as glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) complex carbohydrates involved in many biological processes, especially in strenghtening joints and maintaining the lubricating synovial fluid around them.

The vegetarian broth included in the Detox was specifically formulated to support ease of digestion and to provide a range of nutrients, particularly the bioavailable minerals in root vegetables.

Both the Ginger-Turmeric Broth and the Turmeric-Ginger Cabbage tonic feature the potent anti-inflammatory and immune-supporting combination of ginger and turmeric, along with ginger’s reknowned abilities to support healthy digestion.

For more details about the benefits of broth see this article by Dr. Chris Kresser, and this article in Mark’s Daily Apple.

A Nutritional Therapist is not a substitute for your family physician or other appropriate healthcare provider. A Nutritional Therapist is not trained nor licensed to diagnose or treat pathological conditions, illnesses, injuries, or disease. If you are under the care of a healthcare provider, it is important that you to inform them of any dietary changes you make. Nutritional therapy may alter your need for medication.

It is not possible to determine in advance how your system will react to dietary changes. It is your responsibility to use the nutrition guidelines outlined in this gentle detox to take care of your own body's needs.

Eating local seaweed is about a lot more than minerals!

Also covered will be nutritional information, culinary suggestions and best storage practices. Dried seaweed will be available to purchase during each class along with free recipes to take home. The series includes an optional one-day field trip to the Sonoma Coast to identify and harvest seaweeds along the shore and learn how some varieties are sustainably cut. 

Class 1: Nutritional benefits: Sample a variety of local sea vegetables and learn about their nutrient contents. The variety you like the most is probably the one you need the most! Learn how the sea vegetables are hand-harvested and sun-dried today using ancient techniques.

Class 2: Seaweed for the Season: Discuss culinary and herbal techniques for using sea vegetables in Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall. For example, uses in soups, teas, and congees.

Class 3: Benefits of locally harvested seaweed for the ecosystem, ocean health and the local community. Learn how quickly our ocean ecology is changing.   

Seaweed Harvesting Field Trip (optional): Join us for an early-morning trip to the beautiful Sonoma Coast. Date TBA. Discover and explore the natural environment where the sea vegetables live and learn how to harvest in a sustainable way. Drive your own car or carpool with someone from the class.

Cost is $165 for three classes, including the optional Seaweed Harvesting Field Trip (date TBD).

 

Julie Drucker has been harvesting seaweed from the Mendocino Coast since 2003.  Since 2008 she has run Yemaya Seaweeds. She teaches foraging and nutrition classes at the Ohlone Herbal College in Berkeley.
