Cure Fibromyalgia By Adding This Easy Chicken Stock To Your Diet
Easy Do-Ahead Chicken Stock to cure fibromyalgia with a delicious, nutritious food.
To ensure that you are providing yourself with a healthy diet which is the number one way you can cure yourself from fibromyalgia. Make this easy, tasty chicken stock that will not only make your food taste 5 star restaurant good, but will load your body with the nutrients it badly needs. It will add lots of minerals to your diet.
Here is an easy stock to prepare.
If you buy and roast chickens, take all the leftover bones and keep shuttling them into freezer-type storage bags until you have about three pounds of them.
On a day when you feel good, take 4 onions, and chop it up and freeze it. Do the same with 8 carrots. A bunch of celery.
Now you have all the prep for your stock!
Once you have accumulated enough chicken bones and parts, dump them all in a stock pot. (The bigger the better, up to 10 quarts!, you can purchase these at Target's and Wal-Mart’s.) If you do use the 10 quart size, double or triple all ingredients.
Now dump in the stock pot from your freezer bags
• 1 cup chopped onion
• 1/2 cup chopped carrots
• 1/2 cup chopped celery
Hardly any work to assemble since every vegetable is pre-chopped. Plus, now you won't sweat about food going bad when it’s fresh because you didn't feel well on the day you meant to cook it!
• 4 quarts cold water
• 1/4 cup vinegar, (any type, except for white, too harsh)
• 1 tsp. pepper, preferable green peppercorns, easier on the stomach.
Let stand for 1 hour. The vinegar will break down the bones so that all the minerals will get in the stock.
Are you wondering why there is no salt added? Never add salt to stock. Only when you’re preparing a recipe later should you salt. This way there is less chance of over-salting the dish and ruining the flavor.
I set a bell for this and then come back and turn on the heat to medium-high. When the stock begins to boil, lower the heat to a very, very low temperature. Cover and let simmer for up to 24 hours. The longer it cooks, the more the bones will get into the stock. If that's not possible, at least let it simmer 2 hours.
I encourage you to let it go the full 24 hours. The stock will be very rich and flavorful. Every subsequent recipe you make with it will be enhanced by the quality of this stock.
When it is finished, cool and strain. Do this by taking a very large pan or bowl and setting it in the sink and then pouring the whole thing through a strainer, carefully. This step was tedious for me till I learned how easy it is to strain it this way. Some people try to save the meat for other recipes at this point but my personal taste finds the chicken to be very tasteless after such a long cooking and that it isn't worth the effort.
I recommend you save yourself the trouble and dispose all of it.
Now you should put the stock back in the stock pot and simmer over a medium heat until it reduces by at least half. You could also keep reducing it until it becomes a very strong, thick syrup. If you do, you will have the convenience of store-bought bouillon cubes but with the homemade taste and texture that only comes from fresh stock.
Then freeze it in an ice cube tray and when solid, place cubes in a sealed freezer bag to be added to your dishes later at a moments notice! How much? This is more a matter of taste but I would estimate about 1 cube is equivalent to 1/2 to 1 cup stock with water added.
So place 4-6 cubes of this highly concentrated frozen stock in a sauce pan for this
Thai soup recipe, which is another easy way to cure with diet,

Now you have homemade rich chicken stock. You haven’t had to compromise buying nutrient-depleted ingredients that may save time but could cheat you of your best health and well-being.
You really can cure fibromyalgia with diet by making an easy stock like this.
And it doesn’t have to be complicated.
