Bones can be or should be used max to max 2 times, its because we boil it in very high temperature and if we use it for 3-4 times then there is of no use.

Sounds like marrow, and it sounds delicious. It doesn't get much more Ancestral than that. Make sure your not on GAPS though, they don't recommend cooking the bones down too long.

Will my bone mineral density or bone mineral content or bone size or whatever increase from eating bones? Technique to eat bones: cook as a bone broth until they're edible. Preferably mushed up in the actual broth.

Maybe. If you're coming off a SAD-style diet to a Paleo-style diet, you might well end up with denser bones, but the relationship isn't going to be linear. At some point, your bones will achieve a normal density and then stop getting denser due... (more)
