Golden Detox Tonic

My joints have been bothering me so maybe a little turmeric tonic will do the trick!

2 cups hot water
1/2 t. powdered turmeric
1/2 t. powdered ginger
Juice from 1/2 lemon
1/2 t. coconut oil
Pinch or more of cayenne
Pinch black pepper
Honey to taste
Can also add a little nut milk

Heat water in small saucepan then stir in the rest of the ingredients. This is warm lemon water jacked up with other health enhancing nutrients.

I take tumeric by capsule every day. I take it in rx strength so I won't tell you the amount. I have to take it for several weeks and then go off of it, on again, off again. Then, in between, I juice fresh tumeric and add to my juices, or teas, or just by itself. I order fresh tumeric from my local Whole Foods.

You are a good testament for turmeric, HippyDaisyChick! What form do you take... capsules, powder or the real root?

Tumeric is so good. I started taking tumeric for pain relief over a year ago, and it helps me so much! I had a back injury from a car wreck I was in, and it helped me so much with inflammation and pain....I highly recommend tumeric to anyone in need of anti-inflammation and pain. It worked better for me than anything else! And, it is tasty!

There are probably other sources on line, but I buy turmeric from this link:

When I first saw the pic, I thought, that has to have tumeric in it! Yep, I was right. Can you give some good sources of finding tumeric. Getting the ground tumeric in the spice section at the grocery store is too expensive. Does anyone know a good bulk source? Thanks!

Penni, you are right...this is one of the best natural medicines around for prevention. I should have this at least a couple times a week!

This recipe is a keeper - I drank something very similar when I lost my voice & had asthma-like symptoms with a horrible virus. It turned things around quickly! Thanks for sharing!
