DIY turmeric tonic

A wellness wonder

As spring turns to summer what better way to ring in the spring than with a delicious and refreshing healing beverage?

Today we are going to share a powerful and flavorful tonic that you can make with a superherb known as “the golden goddess” in the far east. Turmeric!

Aside from just adding incredible flavor to an otherwise
bland dish, turmeric is a tremendous anti-inflammatory that has been used for
thousands of years to prevent and treat a broad array of health conditions,
from cognitive challenges all the way to cancer.

It is jam packed with health benefits, but is also a
cherished spice that is safe enough to eat every day (as it is in many regions
of India and eastward.)

The simple tonic below is refreshing to sip and a great way
to start healing your body with food.
