– I do a lot of sport’s medicine in my practice, a lot of injection therapy using Prolotherapy or Platelet Rich Plasma, and people always ask, “What is it that I can do at home to help with this process?” And one of the things that I recommend is actually bone broth. And the reason that I recommend bone broth is that it supports collagen repair. Right, so we look at the components of bone broth. Not only does it have the glutamic, the Glutamine, but it also contains collagen and it contains amino acids, and it contains minerals. And so when I’m looking to compliment the therapies that I utilize, bone broth is one of those things that is easy to recommend.
– It seems like bone broth is really fantastic for bone and joint health. So if people have joint issues, and I would imagine with the Prolotherapy a lot of times you’re probably addressing some joint issues there.
– From those that might be weekend warriors or people who just have some bad joints.
– Or history of you know being, I have people that come in and say I used to be a dancer, or I’m down hill skier, or I do a lot of hiking. And my joints just start holding up and they’ve taken so much abuse over time. There’s a couple of things going on there. One is that the joints are probably deteriorating. But a lot of us just have horrible diets and horrible guts. And if you have a horrible gut, leaky gut or valve, or permeable valve, then you probably have an immune response, which is leading to inflamation of the body.
