Want to alleviate or prevent arthritis, Crohn's disease, IBS, prostate tumors, cancer and even protect your liver? Instead taking anti-inflammatory agents like Hydrocortisone, Motrin, NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), save some money by using turmeric.
I make a great tea with turmeric. Just boil 2 cups of water (or any kind of milk including nut milk - they just have more calories), add a teaspoon each of turmeric and ginger powder. Let it boil for 10 minutes and add sweetener to taste. I use a special pot for this since the turmeric stains everything but the taste is wonderful and it's MY pick me up in the morning instead of coffee.
I also use the turmeric root in my smoothies. Just remember, it does stain.
