I have been reading about the wonderful benefits of turmeric for a while now. Indians cook almost all their meals with turmeric. In my case, as I have increasingly reduced cooked foods and started relying on salads, steamed foods, fruits, yogurt etc. I found it increasingly difficult to add turmeric to my food. If your cuisine is from outside India it may be even harder to add turmeric to your diet. Turmeric contains curcumin which has been established clinically as containing wonderful medicinal properties for a wide variety of medical issues.
I then discovered this recipe for preparing Turmeric tea which seems to contain key ingredients that address a host of issues.
1 Cup Coconut or Almond Milk
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
Raw Honey to balance the taste
Slow boil it and then drink it
It has been established the combining turmeric with pepper significantly improves the effectiveness of both ingredients in healing your body. Cinnamon has been known as a wonderful anti-inflammatory, helps reduce blood sugar, helps with neurodegenarative diseases and cancer. The ingredients in this tea make for a very powerful mix of naturally available solutions. Combined, you are addressing medical issues ranging from cancer caused by free radicals, blood sugar and diabetes, inflammation, bacterial and fungal infection, Alzheimers and Parkinson’s. It also acts like an antiseptic and also detoxifies the liver. I have been looking for alternatives to kick my evening coffee habit. Here is to turmeric tea!
Note: variations of this recipe include adding lemon and ginger and you can pick what suits you.
