Open the gate to your soul and flood your body with good health for healthy living, it’s where you live.
I love Turmeric
There are so many diseases now days that the majority of us are starting to take notice and apply some simple solutions to our everyday living. I personally started my quest of healthy living by adding turmeric to my diet, well it wasn’t just turmeric I actually did a lot of research and came up with my own recipe for what I call turmeric tea. Actually you can call it what you want, I just personally want you to explore some healthy benefits of using herbs and spices.
I’m not one for measuring ingredients since I basically tailor my tea for my own taste buds. All of my ingredients are organic and here is my receipt.
Powdered turmeric- slows or reduces blood clogs, it's a great antidepressant and recent studies have shown that it may be key factor in reducing the risk of Alzheimer's.
Ginger root -control blood pressure, as it has been shown to improve blood circulation and relax the muscles surrounding blood vessels.
Lemon juice- a good source of vitamin C, aids in digestion, and helps prevent kidney stones.
Manuka honey-anti bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties.
Cinnamon-Cinnamon not only prevents heart disease, it can help treat diabetes.
Cayenne pepper- raises body temperature and boosts circulation.
1 quart of water- Hydration, helps prevent headaches and effects your energy level and brain function.
I add all the ingredients in a pot and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Once done I pour the delicious liquid into my mason jar and place in the refrigerator. My tea usually last about one week.
I like mine slightly warm but you can try it cold if you prefer and I usually drink a cup just before bed.
When you ingest turmeric with black peppercorns, you are increasing the amount of the turmeric your can absorb while protecting healthy cells from free radicals which can cause damage
I can’t promise that this will work for you but my blood pressure, leaky gut and cholesterol levels have returned to normal over the past 12 months. so as the old saying goes, "you do the math," and I say count up the cost and see what works for you. You can do nothing and get the same results. or you can try something. Nothing beats a failure but a try.
Some of the benefits of turmeric:
Lower risk of Alzheimer's disease
Indigestion and heartburn aid
Turmeric is fast emerging as a leader in the superfood arena
It’s inexpensive, it has a mild taste and it benefits the entire body. I’m really hoping that you do some research and find out for yourself how you can begin to take charge of your body and live a long healthy life.

1 large Collard leaf
½ Carrot sliced thinly
½ tomato sliced thinly
½ cucumber sliced thinly
¼ red onion sliced thinly
Red cabbage sliced thinly
Small yellow bell pepper sliced thinly
Small amount of bean sprouts
I personally like to smash an avocado and use it as my spread on the bottom but for those of you that like beets and horse radish go right ahead. Both are good.
Once I place all the ingredients on my collard leaf, I fold the ends in-ward getting a good grip, I then roll it until all sides are closed and place a tooth pick in it to keep it closed while I cut it.
The best part is when I take my 1st big bite, ummm soooo Goood.
