Congratulations Teresa Gimpayan from Manila for winning our Honey-ber-saya contest. She shared her morning “golden turmeric drink” as an entry.
Turmeric Milk Recipe ala Teresa
- 2 pcs fresh turmeric root (about an inch per piece)
- Oat milk (She makes her own milk)
- 2 tbsp of raw honey @mutyarawhoney
- 1 tbsp coconut oil (for better absorption of curcumin)
- A pinch of black pepper
- Put everything in a blender and drink
Teresa shared she has been struggling with an autoimmune disease (hyperthyroidism) for almost a month now, her thyroid has been over acting and produces an excessive amount of iodine, that cause palpitation, weight loss and exhaustion every day, even a simple movement makes her real tired. She thought that every disease has something to do with inflammation inside the body, and ‘curcumin’ an active ingredient of turmeric, has a powerful anti-inflammatory effect. She then decided to change her morning routine and included a blended golden drink every day.
Teresa makes it with fresh turmeric, raw honey, oat milk, virgin coconut oil and a pinch of black pepper. She’s been doing this routine for almost a month and really glad it works well. It helped to eliminate palpitation and prevented energy loss. She started working out again.
