My Turmeric Tonic will keep the flu away!

So I woke up this morning with the snifflesno time for that business! With my crazy schedule I cannot afford to get sick. So I came up with this incredibly delicious, anti-inflammatory, detoxifying tonic to sip through the day. I use room temperature water and warm up each cup in the microwave. It’s soothing and lovely a bit warm. Here is my recipe for a gallon size glass container…

~ Juice of 3 limes

~ 3 Teaspoons of Turmeric powder

~ 1/4 cup of grated ginger

~ teaspoon of Cayenne pepper

~ 4 stalks of mint chopped finely

~ one whole grapefruit sliced thinly

~ add purified water…..and Enjoy!!!

Please consult with your doctor that it is safe for you to have Turmeric or any of these ingredients. If so, enjoy!

Turmeric…The wonder spice!

What herb keeps you healthy and puts a smile on your face??? TURMERIC…

Curcumin, found in the yellow Indian spice turmeric, has amazing health benefits, including elevating mood and combating depressive symptoms as effectively as the prescription drug Prozac! Wow!

Used as an herbal medicine and food for nearly 4,000 years, turmeric is a well-documented treatment for a wide range of disorders, inspiring researchers to dub it “the golden spice of life”.

I personally take a 1/2 of a teaspoon of Turmeric every morning in warm water, lemon and honey. It is extremely anti inflammatory and will boost your mood!  When the body is inflamed ( from excessive alcohol, over eating animal flesh, smoking, eating processed foods to name a few) it is a breeding ground for disease. Anti inflammatory spices and herbs, like Turmeric, are amazing at reducing puffiness, joint pain, asthma, arthritis, it even speeds metabolism…it is a wonder spice!
