Our First Newsletter!
In the coming months East Village Acupuncture & Massage will be partnering with different neighborhood institutions to offer special promotions and give shout-outs to small businesses that we think make the East Village such a great community. Brodo has generously kicked off our promos by offering our patients a free cup of their delicious bone broth!
If you have visited us at East Village Acupuncture there is a good chance we have recommended that you try adding a daily cup of bone broth to your diet. When bones are simmered for an extended period of time, the gelatin and collagen in the connective tissue break down and are infused into the broth. This creates a soothing protein and mineral-rich drink that is not only delicious, but is also deeply healing and restorative to the body. The resulting broth is rich in calcium, magnesium, iron, silicon, phosphorus, sulphur, glycine, collagen and gelatin. Gelatin plays an important role in soothing an inflamed digestive tract, healing the mucosal lining of the intestines and aiding in the assimilation of nutrients.
At East Village Acupuncture & Massage we recommend bone broth for patients who have muscular skeletal issues, arthritis, fertility or menopausal concerns as well as digestive complaints. From a Chinese medicine perspective, bone broth is appropriate for conditions that require nourishment of Yin, Yang, Blood and Qi.
Brodo offers local, high quality bone broth served at a to-go window on 1st Avenue (corner of E12th Street). Meat free? No problem: Brodo offers a vegan broth that is a great source of nutrients for patients who don’t consume animal products.

All the best Donna, Brian, Elizabeth & Jessica
