Natural Healing: Strong Bones Broth


| September/October 2002


Herbs can help pre- and postmenopausal women maintain strong bones. This healthy broth can be added to soups or stews or used instead of water to cook rice. It includes ginger (Zingiber officinale) to increase mineral assimilation and eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus) to support the adrenal glands.

  • 2 cups horsetail (Equisetum arvense)
  • 2 cups nettle leaf (Urtica dioica)
  • 1 cup dandelion (Taraxacum officinale), watercress, parsley greens, or any combination
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh gingerroot
  • 1/8 cup eleuthero
  • 8 cups water
  1. In a stainless steel pot, simmer the herbs in the water for 45 minutes.
  2. Strain the broth and press as much liquid from the herbs as possible; discard the herbs.
  3. Drink 1 cup of broth morning and evening, before meals, or use the broth in cooking. Store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
