ROOT MEDICINE: Turmeric Root and a Healing Brew Recipe

Nature is brilliant. Such a diverse and impressive Farmacy.
Earth’s Medicine Cabinet really shines. Roots, herbs, medicine foods, essences….

I work with Turmeric/Curcumin on a daily basis. I take it to relieve chronic back pain and inflammation from a cycling accident. It’s also one of the top root medicines I suggest because it is just gets to the point. The healing effects are palpable. Infinite benefits (kind of how I feel about Coconut Oil and Lemon).

Curcumin, the main active ingredient in turmeric, has VERY STRONG anti-inflammatory effects and is a powerful antioxidant. The benefits of Turmeric have been known to surpass anti-inflammatories, anti-depressants, chemo, pain killers, arthritis meds, IBD meds and so much more.

Turmeric is a true wonder root. So grateful for these little nobules of awesome.
 Turmeric Milk


  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 cup almond or hemp milk
  • ½ cup water
  • 2-3 black peppercorns
  • tsp honey
  • sprinkle of cinnamon

Warm milk and water over low heat and stir in the turmeric powder. Bring to a boil and allow to simmer for 10 minutes. This will reduce the milk to one cup. Turn off the heat and add crushed black pepper. Adding #blackpepper to the brew will make the Turmeric more #bioavailable. Drink the milk hot or warm. Add a drop of honey and sprinkle with cinnamon for some extra mojo.
