Bone Broth Works Wonders for Former SU Athlete

Sue Ludwig, a former Syracuse University athlete, had experienced challenging health issues over the past couple years, and was looking for some help with recovery…

As a former college athlete at Syracuse University, I’ve always considered myself a fit and healthy person. While I’ve always incorporated what most would consider healthy foods into my diet (ex. salads, veggies, fruits, and fish/lean meats), I also feasted on plenty of American favorites (pizza, burgers, fries, sweets, etc). I always rationalized that those were fine for me to eat because of my good health, daily activity, and exercise levels. 

However, two years ago, I began experiencing significant health and digestive issues. sue-ludwig-3

Physical Problems

  • Gross motor coordination difficulties
  • Lack of balance
  • Blurred vision
  • Fatigue

Neurological Issues 

  • Brain fog
  • Lack of mental clarity
  • Difficulties concentrating
  • Headaches

These all significantly impacted my job and all facets of my life. After an MRI, blood tests, a colonoscopy, and a host of other medical tests revealed nothing, I decided that I needed to take matters into my own hands. Through my research – which included seeking out holistic practitioners and a nutritionist – I was quick to learn that these issues didn’t start overnight. They were a systemic problem that began many years ago, fueled by frequent antibiotic use for sinus infections, and the foods I was eating.  

The more I learned, the more I realized just how bad the typical American diet is! I learned how it was breaking down my body. My diet was loaded with plenty of GMO foods, high sugar content, and synthetic sweeteners. The meats and fish I consumed contained antibiotics, pesticides, and synthetic chemicals. One of the most profound things that I recently read was that “all disease starts in the gut!”

With this knowledge, I began my crusade of a healthy lifestyle eating change…

Enter: Core Greens, Grains & Bone Broth! 

The timing of Core’s opening (May 2015) lined up perfectly with my much-needed lifestyle change. It couldn’t have come at a better time and was such good fortune. They offer sue-ludwig-2countless options for lunch and dinner, along with gluten-free options. The low-sugar drinks are also an added plus for me.  

But what has really made a significant impact? Bone broth! This broth is the most healing stuff on the planet: from healing injuries to your digestive tract, providing huge immune benefits and for overall general health. While I was paying a fortune to get quality bone broth online, you can get it for a buck per cup at Core! As a frequent flyer to Core, I drink 4 cups a day, and make all of my soups from it.

While my journey continues and isn’t always easy, there’s no doubt that Core has made a substantial difference in the way I feel. The wholesome food continues to heal my body and mind. Try it once, you’ll be hooked!
