I've said it before and I'll say it again: Turmeric should be in everyone's diet! I'm no doctor, but I have learned one simple, irrefutable fact in my years studying yoga, nutrition and healthy living -- our typical Western diets cause massive inflammation in the body, which can cause illness and disease. Remember learning about pH balance in high school chemistry? One too many droplets in the beaker and explosion central! Our bodies are just as delicate.
A simple formula to remember is you need to be slighlty alkaline for your body to be functioning at its highest potential. In order to do that, you need to cut back on highly acidic foods like: fatty red meats, processed/canned foods, refined carbohydrates, cow's milk, high sugar juices, etc. Introduce more alkaline-based foods into your diet like: leafy greens, whole grains, seeds, nuts, vegetables, raw manuka honey, ginger and turmeric. Affectionately referred to at the "Queen of Spices", turmeric is a natural, powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. It's most famous for treating digestion issues, arthritis, muscles aches, and reducing inflammation in the body. It's even been used for the treatment of cancers and severe rheumatoid arthritis.
This month, I am so proud to partner with Temple Turmeric, a conscious company that creates delicious turmeric-based nourishing beverages called elixirs using only non-GMO ingredients. The turmeric they source is grown in Hawaii and is of the highest quality on the market today.
