Tumeric Tea

For about a decade now, I have read about the numerous benefits of Tumeric. My momma gave it to my pops early in his Alzheimer’s disease process and I believe it slowed the progression of his disease.  Another study, showed cervical cancer cells lyse after exposing them to Tumeric in a petrie dish. Multiple studies have shown that curcumin can reduce the growth of cancerous cells in the laboratory and inhibit the growth of tumours in test animals (1).

Now, just like everything else, this is not a magic bullet, but a supplement to help with certain diseases, discomforts, signs and symptoms. Some of the benefits of Tumeric include:

anti-inflammatory

antioxidant

boost of brain function

lowers risk of brain disease

helps with heart disease

prevent certain cancers

help in treatment of cancer

helps in depression

joint pain like arthritis

anti-aging

I received this tea recipe from a wise Kundalini dude. I’ve had clients try the tea and feel joint relief instantly. Thank you to CSK and 101 cookbooks!

Turmeric tends to stain anything it comes into contact with, so be careful.

1/3 cup / 80 ml good, raw honey
2 1/2 teaspoons dried turmeric
lemon
lots of freshly ground black pepper

Work the turmeric into the honey until it forms a paste. You can keep this on hand, in a jar, for whenever you’d like a cup.

For each cup of tea, place a heaping teaspoon of the turmeric paste in the bottom of a mug. Pour hot (but not boiling water) into the mug, and stir well to dissolve the turmeric paste. Add a big squeeze of juice from a lemon, and a good amount of black pepper. Enjoy! Stir now and then as you drink so all the good stuff doesn’t settle to the bottom, or top off with more hot water as you drink it.

    I take turmeric everyday. I found that it has decreased my headaches considerably which is wonderful because I used to get them all the time. Now it is rare and if I get one, it is mild.
