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.
- 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.
