Thanks to all of you who completed my survey. Many of you asked for more information about how to improve your health naturally, as well as clearing the program running on your personal hard-drive of “illness” with Ancestral Healing.
So today, I want to give a big shout out to Turmeric.
Turmeric is the main spice in curry and is arguably the most powerful herb on the planet at fighting and potentially reversing disease. It has so many healing properties that currently there have been thousands of articles published proving the benefits of turmeric and one of its renowned healing compounds curcumin.
This puts turmeric on top of the list as one of the most frequently mentioned medicinal herbs in all of science and the next most popular studied herbs include garlic, cinnamon, ginseng, ginger and milk thistle.
In the studies of curcumin, the most interesting finding is that when turmeric is compared to conventional medicine its benefits equal that of many pharmaceutical medications.
I have been advised to eat Turmeric Paste which provides health benefits to humans as well as animals. Turmeric, known for is anti-inflammatory properties and used medicinally for over 4,000 years, is great for arthritis, skin health, immune system, and reports say, even cancer.
I have discovered that this recipe was developed by Doug English, a veterinarian who has utilized the ancient healing spice in all manner of animals ranging from dogs to cats to the more exotic types like alpacas and even crocodiles. He tells the story of how he used his mixtures on horses, which began to thrive under his care thanks to this “miracle” spice.
Taking it daily in a paste is designed to improve absorption, an easy way to tap into its enormous benefits.
Here is the recipe……
How to make Golden Paste:
1 large dessert spoon of turmeric powder 1 cup bottled water or coconut water (+ more if necessary) 1 tsp ground black pepper 1 large dessert spoon of coconut oil
Mix water (1 cup) with turmeric powder in a pan and slowly heat it up and stir for 6-10 minutes until you get a thick paste (add the additional ½ or 1 more cup of water if it is too thick).
Add black pepper and oil and continue stirring until all the ingredients are fully mixed in together.
Allow the paste to cool. Store in the refrigerator in a jar for up to 1 week (some people successfully stored it for 2 weeks).
My philosophy is that turmeric should be part of your life and not taken as a medication.
So here are some great ways you can use your paste:
Take 1 teaspoon 2- 3 times a day.
Don’t like the taste, add some Manuka honey
Add to smoothies
Add to curries
Turmeric drink You can add turmeric paste to warm cup of water, add honey and a green tea bag if you fancy.
Soups – Add it to your soup
Hot Frothy Milk – I have also added a teaspoon into hot frothy almond/coconut milk to make a warming nutritious winter drink, sprinkled with cinnamon. Mmmmm…….
