Recently, I watched a video called Ten Keys to Conquer Crohn’s and Colitis with Jordan Rubin explaining how he healed his Crohn’s disease which doctors claim is incurable. (Remember, if drugs, surgery, or radiation don’t cure something, they call it incurable.) My mother healed her colitis after doctors gave her an incurable diagnosis too. It’s a fascinating journey he went on to finally find a cure and now, he shares it with others.
The man who edited my first book “The Power of a Transformed Wife” was cured of his prostate cancer a few years ago with the help of Jordan Rubin. He helped Jordan edit a few of his books too.
I have read two books of Jordan’s since listening to this video. In his book Restoring Your Digestive Health, he gives a recipe for a healing chicken broth. I decided to make it, and it’s wonderful! This is one of the best things to do to heal your gut along with cutting out all gluten and even most carbohydrates during the healing phase. (Watch the video for all of the details.) He’s helped people heal from IBD, IBS, Celiac, and other gut issues. This book is also written by a gastroenterologist who gives all of the side effects of the drugs given to people with gut issues, along with specifics of healing for every digestive aliment and disease.
Here is there recipe for the healing chicken broth.
3 quarts filtered water
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
4-6 tablespoons coconut oil
1 medium organic, free-range whole chicken
8 organic carrots, sliced
6 stalks of organic celery, sliced
2-4 organic zucchinis, sliced
3 medium-size organic white or yellow onions, peeled and diced
4 inches ginger, grated
5 cloves garlic, peeled and diced (omit if you have upper GI problems or severe heartburn)
2 to 4 tablespoons of sea salt
Place the filtered water in a large stainless steel pot and apple cider vinegar, and let stand for 10 minutes. Add the oil, chicken, vegetables, ginger, garlic, and sea salt; and bring to a boil over high heat. Let boil for 60 seconds, then lower the heat and simmer for 12 to 24 hours. About 30 minutes before removing soup from the heat, add the parsley. Remove the soup from the heat. Remove the chicken meat from the bones; place the chicken meat back in the soup and discard the bones. Ladle into soup bowls and serve hot. For acute situations with high inflammation, allow the soup to cool, then puree it in batches in a high-powered blender or food processor. Some people with extremely severe conditions may want to discard the chicken and vegetables and consume only the broth.
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
3 John 1:2
