Re: Trying to get the best price

For sure Bone Broth is a great medicine for all sorts of ailments as well as proactively healthy. I'm not sure it matters much about mirroring consuming the part of an animal or making bone broth from the part of the animal that you have an ailment with, but it's not like it can really not work when...
