Calcium and Mineral-Rich Vinegar

I love my bones and I love finding new ways to feed my bones.

My bones were jumping for joy having found The Healthy Bones Nutrition Plan and Cookbook – Medicine Through Food Guide by Dr. Laura Kelly and Helen Bryman Kelly.  Inside the book offers a recipe for Bone-Building Calcium-Rich Vinegar.

Bones need sleep

At the end of a long day I am bone tired. But when my head hits the pillow, my Skelly still has lots of work to do. Here’s what I mean…

Your bones have a daily cycle just like the rest of your body.

A lot of people are excited about a new “magic pill” for bones. But my Skelly is a little skeptical. I’m talking about strontium.

Most people have never heard of this mineral.   It’s named after Strontian, a village in Scotland where it was discovered in 1790. Today it’s used mostly in industry.

Even though I associated dandelions with this yearly struggle, I was still always delighted to see the bright yellow flowers pop up every spring. I give them credit for piquing my lifelong curiosity about plants.

Fast-forward 55 years and I rediscovered dandelions in Damanhur, a magical 40-year-old eco-village nestled in the foothills north of Piedmont, Italy.
