I read this article a couple of months ago, and just re-read it. It is amazing health information on gelatin. A little of what it covers are diabetes, aging, adrenals, thyroid, hormones, anxiety, sleep, cancer, fragile capillaries (easy bruising), epilepsy, the antiinflammatory amino acids in gelatin, and more.
The GAPS diet uses soup broths using fish heads, chicken feet and bones for it’s healing properties. It’s great for healing the intestines. I’m going to try to incorporate more into my diet and try it for sleep, as mentioned in the article. Fortunately, it is low in the sulfur based amino acids, so should be able to be used in a low sulfur diet as well.
wellnessmama.com is also a great resource for the benefits and how to use gelatin-it is also just a fantastic website! Great Lakes brand gelatin KOSHER is from grass-fed animals (make sure you order the kosher only). This can be ordered off amazon. thecoconutmama.com also has some recipes for gelatin.
If you mix 1 T. of gelatin with 1/3 cup cold water, let gel then fill the rest of the cup with hot tea it is very easy to drink. Good to drink at bedtime. Somewhere I read that gelatin should never be put in the microwave because it changes the chemical structure and makes it dangerous-I can’t remember the exact explanation.
Unfortunatly, I just found out the gelatin is very high in sulfur, so not as good for CBS snps. Be careful if you also have CBS, and watch your other sulfur intake if you use gelatin. The longer you cook you soup with meat and bones, the higher in sulfur it will be. I don’t know that I would totally avoid it, just keep in mind balance.
My story is long and can get pretty involved so I am going to skip many details and get straight to significant life events. I feel once you understand who I am as an individual based on my experiences, you and I will resonate on a deeper level. After all, DrBenLynch.com is not about me - it is about how I can help you.
Life experiences change a person. Or do life experiences create a person?
Bottom line: I am not your typical guy nor am I your typical doctor....
