This slightly sweet, earthy tonic is a wonderful way to start your day: Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Tonic. And the best part is that you don’t need a juicer to make it!
Inflammation is our body’s response to stress- whether this comes from the foods that you eat, the lifestyle that you live, or from an injury. Inflammatory responses such as fevers or pain and swelling are your body’s way of trying to bring itself back into balance. But that is not what we are talking about today.
Causes of Inflammation
What we are talking about is the modern epidemic of low-grade inflammation in our bodies that is making us sick. We are talking about the inflammation that comes from eating a poor quality diet loaded with refined sugars, processed foods, industrial fats, gluten, and poor quality meats. Other causes of inflammation include:
- lack of sleep
- lack of exercise
- diets low on Omega 3 fatty acids and high in Omega 6 fatty acids
- chronic stress
- poor gut health
- lack of time outdoors and away from media and stimulation
- low-grade food allergies and sensitivities
- environmental toxins
This constant state of inflammation is weakening our bodies and our immune systems, making us more susceptible to illness and making us age at a faster rate.
So what are we to do?
Besides looking at the factors listed above and making lifestyle choices accordingly, there are some powerful anti-inflammatory foods that you can ingest to bring down inflammation in the body. If you reduce inflammation in your body, you’ll not only look and feel younger, but you’ll significantly lower your risk for chronic disease.
Health benefits of turmeric:
Research shows that turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, and antioxidant properties. It has also been shown to block cancer cells, to reduce the risk for diabetes, and to be good for the liver. (source)
An easy way to reduce inflammation and to give your immune system a powerful boost is to add turmeric to your diet.
I use turmeric liberally in my cooking and will often whip up a Creamy Tropical Turmeric Smoothie for a mid-afternoon snack. Lately, we have been making this delicious turmeric tonic to start the day.

What’s in the turmeric tonic?
Now sold in many health food stores, this bright orange root is powerful anti-inflammatory medicine. If you cannot find the fresh root, you can substitute dry turmeric powder.
Ginger is another wonderful anti-inflammatory. It also promotes healthy digestion and improves absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients. The fresh root is best.
Coconut water is deeply hydrating and nourishing. It is loaded with vitamins (especially the B vitamins), minerals, and trace elements (including zinc, selenium, iodine, sulfur, and manganese). It is also full of amino acids, organic acids, enzymes, antioxidants, and phytonutrients. (source)
Lemon or orange:
Citrus fruits are not only sweet and refreshing, they are also loaded with flavonoids, which have anticancer properties. Citrus flavonoids are also antioxidants that can neutralize free radicals and may protect against heart disease. Citrus fruit is also high in Vitamin C, folate, and potassium.
High levels of beta-carotene in carrots act as an antioxidant to prevent cell damage. Vitamin A in carrots is said to promote healthy skin, improve vision, and to assist the liver in flushing out the toxins from the body
Honey or Maple Syrup:
A titch of sweetener gives this tonic a nice smooth flavor. Raw honey is rich in flavanoids which are antioxidants that reduce inflammation. Maple syrup contains polyphenols, antioxidants that quell inflammation.
Adding black pepper increases the bioavailibility of the active ingredient in turmeric, meaning it helps with the assimilation of turmeric into your body.
Cayenne can be added for a bit of heat and is a powerful digestive aid. Cinnamon is a warming spice that is said to stabilize blood sugar.
Black Pepper and a lil' Healthy Fat...
NOTE: I recommend consuming this tonic with a real food meal that includes healthy fats. The active ingredient in turmeric is fat soluble and requires some fat to be properly assimilated into the body. I also added black pepper to this recipe to help with absorption. Black pepper contains the ingredient Piperine which a bioavailability (absorption) enhancer that allows substances to remain in cells for longer periods of time. One study showed that adding pepper increases the bioavailbilty of turmeric by 2000%.

Do You Know Your Body’s Most Important Weight Loss Secret?
By J. Davis III
Tags: HEALING | HEALTHY FATS | REMEDIES
Recently, Doctor of Naturopathy, weight-loss expert and best-selling Amazon author Liz Swann Miller, creator of the Red Smoothie Detox Factor, revealed 2 of the secrets to easy, steady weight loss. Secrets the big food corporations do their best to hide from us.
Secret #1: Enjoy real food. Don’t fall for the lie that you have to deprive yourself to lose weight.
Secret #2: stop eating out. You will automatically eat less without even noticing.
Then start detoxing your body with tasty, nourishing smoothies that are just as easy on your wallet as they are easy to make.
Because a single day of enjoying Liz’ smoothies demonstrated the radical power of her superfood-packed red smoothies to make me feel incredibly good.
Now prepare yourself for one of the biggest weight loss secrets there is. A secret that, when you use it properly, can transform your body and your health.
You probably know most of us eat too much processed food. What you may not know is that it’s full of toxic chemicals and substandard, dirt-cheap ingredients designed to make you eat more…and force you to gain weight.
Here’s how it works...
“That stuff is just a lot of calories your body can’t use,” Liz told me, “Some are poison. And all these foods are stripped of the anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that help your body detox. The result? Your body expends huge amounts of calories to eliminate some toxins—the rest, it stores in your fat to protect you. This is why most people are hungry all the time. They’re not getting energy they need.”
“So… what’s going on with me? Why am I losing weight but not going hungry?”
Liz paused, then dropped the bombshell.
Your body is designed to burn fat. You just have to let it.
“What? I thought we were designed to store fat?!?” We were Skyping and I was practically shouting. Then I heard Liz say…
What good is a fat reserve if you can’t burn it?
Liz continued: “You’re drinking smoothies packed with phytonutrients, anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatories that pull toxins out of you like a tractor beam. Allowing your body to burn those toxin-filled fat stores… and releasing tremendous amounts of stored energy.”
So that’s why I’m losing weight without going hungry.
