It is one of my favorite all-time, multi-talented remedies for many different ailments. It can be used as an anti-inflammatory for people suffering from arthritis, joint pain, and muscle pain. It also aids in digestion, works as an anti-parasitic, and anti-bacterial.
Get High Quality Turmeric
View the full blog post – ..
When I’ve had a hard work-out and am feeling pain in joints and muscles, I take a couple of capsules of turmeric or make some ‘Golden Milk’ and take a few tablets of Calcium with Magnesium. Invariably, I wake up the next morning pain-free. I love being able to give this to my patients because it’s highly effective and cheap.
Take 1/4 cup turmeric powder, mix with 1/2 cup pure water and simmer over medium-high heat for at least 7 minutes, stirring constantly. You will notice a thick paste form. If it get’s too dry while cooking you can add additional water. Once cooled, put into a glass jar and put in fridge. This is good for up to one month.
Add 1 tsp. to 1 cup. hot milk (cow, goat, soy, rice, almond, or any combination), maple syrup or honey to taste and 1/2 tsp. of almond or sesame oil. Gently heat and stir.
My family loves this just before going to bed.

You should add a bit of black pepper to make the absorption much much higher.

If you use animal-based milk for this, you’re taking 2 steps forward, and one step back. Dairy causes inflammation, mucous, and many other health issues. Not to mention it promotes exploitation and abuse of animals.

I bet every single one of those articles were written after the automation of milking cows. When it had to be pasteurized for resale and they were fed some hay and grain rather than raised on large farms where there was an abundance of grass year round, and a year round spring for water that never froze except at the edges. None of my family was hardly ever sick until we moved off the farm. My mom died at 90, dad at 85, maternal grandma at 96 all heavy raw milk drinkers.

According to Ayurveda, milk drunk cold is mucous forming – not when heated. Milk from biodynamic farms does not exploit animals

Unless you use the right formulation, turmeric will not reach the required levels in your blood stream that would be beneficial for inflammatory conditions.Get This free report to learn more ->https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/591026868/Turmeric2/Turmericreport2.html

For cancer warriors: I’m a five year breast cancer survivor….any BC survivor needs to stay away from any unfermented soy. No soy milk, ladies! Also dairy, as casein is not good. I eat almonds, use almond milk, and anything coconut. Turmeric is way better absorbed with a little bit of black pepper (piperine). Just an extra fyi: adopt Ghee for cooking!… Trader Joes has it pretty cheap and it’s sooooooo yummy! Also, plenty of full color veggies, greens and tiny amounts of sugar (including all white starches, sorry!…sprouted organic grains are good)….just some lower sugar fruits and berries. Theres my 2 cents! Have a beautiful day!!!

Hemp products may help with cancer issues too. I have lyme disease, and I actually started using cdb oil (all I can get here in my state), and that seemed to really help with my issues, and then I even just tried regular hemp oil, and that helped. I make my golden milk more chai with cinnamon, cloves, cardamon, nutmeg, stevia – almost all of those have direct health benefits against lyme disease, too.

Is there a benefit to making it a paste rather than just using the powdered turmeric into a drink at the time you are ready to have it?
Wellness Nutritionista3 months ago
Yes, i think it’s better absorbed when cooked, that’s why the ancient ayurvedic doctors cook the turmeric before using it in daily drinks. this way you don’t need to cook your milk, which will destroy some of the vitamins and cause the protein to coagulate a bit.

I am not listening to anyone who thinks cow’s milk helps human bones. This lady needs to educate herself. There have been several studies that prove the calcium in cow’s milk is not usable by the human body and worse, fools the human body onto thinking it has enough. The net effect of consuming cow’s milk on the human skeleton is a massive decrease in calcium and density not to mention dozens of other detrimental effects.

I am Indian having lived almost my whole life in a western country. And having used turmeric (haldi) my whole life. And being laughed at because of this. Now you discovered this thing and found out about it’s benefits. So – commercializing everything – will drive up the price of turmeric to crazy levels.

How exactly is using Turmeric a reason to laugh at someone? Just trying to imagine a person who does that, and why… How about laughing at someone for using Basil, or Mustard, makes no sense.

I bought a kilo of tumeric for 8 dollars recently which is not very expensive. It will take me a long time to use it up. I take about a level teaspoon once or twice a day. By the way, I heard on you tube that mixing it with pepper activates the curcumin to be more efficacious for the various benefits to the body mainly as an anti-cancer agent. I make lemon juice with red pepper, turmeric, black pepper, mustard powder, and horseradish powder and drink it first thing in the morning. It’s a great way to start the day. I eat my garlic and ginger raw.

The latest about turmeric , in particular curcumin is that black pepper and healthy oils are needed to go with it, otherwise our body will have not very much benefits out of it.Also turmeric have to heat up together with black pepper and healthy oil. I make my golden milk often and I like it very much, it taste better with cinnamon.

The best way to injest tumeric is make a paste with any oil ( olive, seseame,udo’s) and black pepper. Amazing way to take it!! The ayurvedic practice shes reffering to with putting tumeric in milk was done in india back when there were no antibiotics and nasty stuff in milk. The reason tumeric was put in milk is because tumeric requires to be bonded in a fat molecule for absorption into the blood stream. Hence a great alternative is mixing in a oil.Also heat destroys the powerful antioxidants in tumeric. So do not heat!

Prepare one teaspoon of tumeric into a tablespoon add some black pepper and olive oil. Then wait for about ten minutes before taking it on preferable an empty stomach. I do this daily and its very easy. I certainly would not cook it.
