Bone Broth For Lupus – Where is the Evidence?

Previous Article Next Article

There a lot of articles on the benefits of bone broth for lupus, but where is the evidence?

Lupus is a disease that modern science is still trying to figure out. In fact, it can seem like there are more questions than answers. Why doesn’t this medication work for me, if it works for others? Why are some days worse than others? What can I do to feel better? With a seeming lack of answers from modern medicine and doctors, it is no surprise so many lupus warriors look for holistic and natural remedies for lupus.

The internet offers no shortage of diets and supplements claiming benefits for people battling lupus.  One natural remedy that has been trending recently is bone broth. As you can see in the chart below, interest in bone broth has been on the rise. Driving this trend are functional and holistic doctors that have been promoting bone broth as a treatment for conditions like lupus to a critical component of general health.

The challenge for lupus warriors is determining if internet claims, like the value of bone broth, are valid or just talk. What makes it even harder is the lack of research on holistic and natural remedies. While proponents of bone broth will point to research that shows value in the components of bone broth like collagen, there are no scientific studies on the impact of a bone broth diet on lupus.

There are many root causes for the limited research on holistic and natural remedies from a lack of funding to a lack of a standard practices. How can you do a study of bone broth if there are so many recipes and some many different ways to take it? While solving this problem won’t be simple, it’s clear that more research has to be done on natural remedies in order to help people make the right health decisions.
