Bone broth is a nourishing medicinal soup used in Traditional Chinese Medicine

Bone Broth takes about a half day (or overnight) to fully prepare but is well worth the benefits you’ll reap. Consider all the benefits of bone broth:


  • Prevents disorders of the bones, cartilage, and connective tissues
  • Boosts immunity during sickness and healing and provides a non-dairy source of calcium and phosphorus.
  • Provides a non-dairy source of calcium and phosphorus
  • Offers an easily digestible source of collagen, chondroitin sulfate, and the essential amino acid building blocks glycine and proline

Bone broth is a delicious accompaniment to any meal. Sip throughout the day, even in your coffee cup, to keep hunger pangs at bay. It is especially helpful for addressing:


  • Osteoporosis, joint stiffness, and arthritis
  • Digestive disorders like inflammatory bowel disease
  • Allergic conditions due to compromised immune function
  • Kidney dysfunction
  • Infertility issues in both men and women
  • Overall health of mother and child during pregnancy


  • 3 pieces of pork bone, approximately 3-4” long (pork bones can be purchased at an Asian supermarket; ask the butcher to cut the bones for you. Three leg bones yield about 18 pieces)
  • 3 quarter-sized pieces of ginger
  • 3 stalks of green onions


  • Large stock pot with lid
  • Baking pan
  • Heavy duty aluminum foil


Step 1

  • Place bones in stock pot
  • Add water until bones are covered
  • Simmer at lowest temperature for about 60 to 90 minutes
  • After about an hour, all the blood and lymph will be released into the water

Step 2

  • Remove the bones and discard the water
  • Place bones on a baking sheet lined with foil
  • Preheat oven to 385°
  • Bake the bones in the oven for 30 minutes

Step 3

  • While the bones are baking:
    1. Clean the stock pot and refill about 2/3 full with water
    2. Rinse and trim the green onion stalks and smash the ginger into small pieces
    3. Place both in the stock pot

Step 4

  • After the bones have baked for 30 minutes:
    1. Rinse them under running water
    2. Place three pieces in the pot with the ginger and onions
  • Bring pot to boil for 15 minutes
  • Then simmer for 4 to 6 hours


Drink up to 2 cups (16 oz.) daily. When it’s time to enjoy, you can add in veggies, like carrots, potatoes, and celery to make it a true meal or just sip the broth. Store the soup in the refrigerator for up to 5 days; you can keep it in the pot or pour into mason jars.
