  1. Hello. Thank you for your in depth answers to the many questions you get about bone broth! I have an add on question. I am trying to heal my leaky gut with bone broth, as well as other things, so I want to embrace the goodness of bone broth for the rest of my life. However, I do get herpes outbreaks ( oh the anguish and embarrassment), and since starting my bone broth adventure, I have had a very dramatic increase in occurrences. Help!!!!!! Please tell me specific amounts of WHAT (I am guessing here, but could adding 1 cup of cooked chicken, or add 1/2 cup of greens, or 2 teaspoon of turmeric…..) to add to my already cooked broth to balance the arginine!! In addition, could increasing the amount of L-lysine that I take on a daily basis (that in the past has been enough to minimize outbreaks) be an additional thing to do? Is there a “toxic” level of either arginine or lysine, or is the ratio the primary factor? Please reply to

    • Hi Melussa, If you are including some chicken (as in a cup to a big bowl of soup), you are probably balancing the ratios out pretty well. If you are still having the outbreaks, could consider more meat with your broth. In terms of dose, it varies from person to person. Are you working with a health care practitioner? If so,you might want to consider amino acid testing. The dose of lysine needed to stop an outbreak is 3000 mg. If you take that at the first tingling, it can kick it back. But that’s a very high daily dose. Among other possibilities, you may also be deficient in Vitamin C. Wish I could give you an exact answer but we’re all different. Kaayla

  2. I just made bone broth with chicken bones for the first time, as I’ve been hearing about a lot of great benefits. Incidentally my mood has been way off today and sometimes I suffer from mild depression and anxiety. I had a cup of my bone broth today and I was surprised that instantly my mood brightened. I honestly couldn’t believe the fast reaction, so I went looking online for anything related to bone broth and mood. I had to post here to share my experience. I don’t take any medications for mood, but this acted like a drug. I am amazed!
