Anti-Inflammatory and Pain Relief Turmeric Ginger Tea

Here's a sample of this soothing, yummy tea!

This recipe is 6,000 years old, and was passed down to me by a dear friend and gourmet chef. I was having some wrist inflammation (brought on by my latest holiday food choices), and was in need of some quick relief. Of course the real cure would be to stop eating cooked treats, but if one is in need of a natural remedy to relieve current issues, then this potion is for you. It's easy to make, but the chopping does take some time. It can be made a week in advance, and the ratios are exact. Do not use this if you're taking blood thinners or are pregnant, because increased bleeding can occur.


~~Makes a single serving of tea~~
(All ingredients are preferably organic)
1 cup of water
1 tablespoon of finely chopped turmeric
1 teaspoon of finely chopped ginger
2 large pinches of fresh ground black tellicherry pepper
1 pinch of fresh ground ceylon cinnamon
---
Combine above ingredients and bring to a boil
Reduce to a simmer and cover
Simmer for 12 minutes
Remove from heat and steep for 15 minutes
Strain before serving


Also, I highly recommend adding one tablespoon of any long chain fatty acid, like almond, hemp, or coconut milk. Coconut oil is the best option though. This will prevent your teeth from turning yellow, and it helps greatly with absorption. Lastly, add 1-2 tablespoons of raw honey to sweeten the brew if you desire.

Cheers, and here's to the healing power of plants.
