My favorite "Anti-inflammatory" Drink


Okay . . . so the other day we spoke about one of my favorite "anti-inflammatory" drinks being "Turmeric and Lemon"


So, here we go . . .


Ingredients: 1 serving

1 cup of warm water

1/2 of a lemon squeezed (juice) 1 tablespoon manuka honey (no substitutes allowed) 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (make sure to get the kind with “mother”) 1/4 teaspoon organic ground turmeric


Stir well and enjoy its goodness


Okay . . . so why is this so good for the body, immune system and our "inflammation"???


Well . . . "turmeric" is known for its detoxification properties and the ability to reduce "inflammation"


"Lemons" are known for their powerful antioxidants that also contain powerful "anti-inflammatory" agents.


"Apple cider vinegar with "mother" is an excellent "anti-inflammatory" and can help to relief the pain of RA. This is due to it containing many vitamins and antioxidants that can help speed the healing process and reduce inflammation and its swelling.


NOTE: This must be ACV with "mother" . . . Why you ask???


Well . . . The "mother" refers to the combination of yeast and bacteria formed during fermentation. And why is this important?


Because the acetic acid present in the organic apple cider vinegar with "mother" can help "lower" blood sugar levels. This specific acid improves the body's ability to digest and absorb nutrients from the food we eat. And if we have "inflammation" in the body . . . as we know . . . it CANNOT absorb nutrients correctly.


"Manuka honey" protects the body against damage caused by the "bad" bacteria I'm always talking about lurking deep within us. It also has an "anti-inflammatory" action that can help ease pain and inflammation.


NOTE: No substitutes please . . . why you ask???


Well . . . Manuka honey's antibacterial properties are what sets it apart from "traditional" honey (local or store bought). Plus . . . Manuka honey has antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. And it's traditionally been used for wound healing, soothing sore throats, preventing tooth decay and improving digestive issues.


It's antibacterial and bacterial "resistant" . . . this means that bacteria can't build up a tolerance to its antibacterial effects.


And this is what we need to fight the overgrowth of "bad" bacteria in our body.


So just 1 simple detox drink in the morning on an empty stomach can set you up for a better day of picking good food choices and a healthier you.


CAUTION NOTE: If you're taking any kind of blood thinner . . . turmeric is "NOT" for you . . .

Although this spice has anti-inflammatory properties . . . it also can "magnify" the effect of a blood thinner's anti-clotting medication
