Bone Broth! Don't be daunted - try it!

Berkhamsted Chiropractic Clinic Bone Broth

Bone broth (obviously not one for you if you are vegetarian) is really just the homemade stock of yesteryear, but one that has been cooked a little longer - the extra hours are the key to extracting all those deeply nourishing nutrients from the bones. It is delicious, extraordinarily nutritious and beats store-bought stock cubes/broth/bouillon hands down. It is incredibly healthy, inexpensive and if you aren’t already making this stuff by the bucket load, we encourage you to START TODAY!

How to give yourself a Vitamin D boost safely!

Sunshine Vitamin D Boost

Vitamin D plays a vital, key role in your immune system.  A deficiency can lead to fatigue, depression, seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and a weakened immune system.  It’s the weakened immune system that exposes you to the common cold, but also to flu and other infections.  On that note, vitamin D has been shown to decrease the severity of influenza, as well as your chances of catching it.  Vitamin D is also know to be responsible for regulating calcium absorption and, therefore, your bone density. It’s also thought to positively affect many other diseases, including: colon and breast cancer, respiratory disease and type-1 diabetes.

So, where do we get vitamin D from?
