I have known for awhile. I have been putting it off sharing…only to finally submit. You see I have been ill. I have been ill with fatigue and thyroid issues for over 16 years. Though basically functional, it has been challenging.
I have been to Doctors and every type out there. And yet…still ill. But never giving up hope for what God has in store for me.
I have tried go eat healthy, and removing sugars and grains, and even went vegan for awhile but nothing seemed to help with a marrage of symptoms.
Turning to Gods word I found there are many verses on how to eat. But I found this especially interesting.
“When Elisha returned to Gilgal, there was a famine in the land. The sons of the prophets were sitting at his feet. He said to his attendant, “Put on the large pot and make stew for the sons of the prophets.”” (2 Kings 4:38 HCSB)
Proving that soup from bones can give people the nourishment they need. Especially when dificent.
In December of last year God took me away of going to see any Dr for a time. And it’s been evident I was getting worse.
So when I saw the GAPS diet again on my Pinterest feed I knew it was time to delve in. Restrictive …yes. But when I saw the list of what one needs to eat to heal it was a no brainier as that’s all I can eat right now anyway. (I went ahead and made my own board on Pinterest to give me a goal for me for more fun food. I call it Gaps a go-go!)
It’s funny how one day you can’t do something, and the next day you know it’s the right thing to do. That can only be God!
So I made a pot of bone broth. I drank a cup and my usual nightly stomach pain went away. Sleep came within minutes of my head hitting the pillow that night, and when I awoke I knew I needed more bone broth.
Yes it’s a commitment. But the good news is I won’t have to stay on it forever. As it will repair my body.
Some of the benefits of bone broth.
- Repairs the lining of the intestinal tract.
- Kills pathogens.
- Supplies collagen to the body which will help with cellulite. (Yea!)
- Supplies our bodies with much needed minerals we are all deficient in.
- Detoxes the body gently.
- Can be used in protocols to help heal anything.
- And it just tastes like a cup of love!

So as I sit here and sip on chicken soup, I am thankful God has brought me a great tool that He himself invented.
It really is His penicillin!
One cup of chicken…or beef…or lamb, or duck…soup at a time!
