Turmeric prevents the release of histamine in the stomach, quelling nervous stomach and counteracting food allergies and it fights gum inflammation by halting the action of a gene that creates irritant chemicals. Without the irritation, bacteria cannot find a place to grow, and the absence of bacteria reduces both bad breath and gingivitis.

– 1/2 cup of clean water
– 1/4 cup of turmeric powder
– 1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper (mixing turmeric and black pepper together, you increase your body’s absorption of the turmeric by 2000%)
– 1/4 teaspoon (or more if you can tolerate the taste) of turmeric paste
– 1 cup almond milk (you can also use organic cow’s milk or other milk substitutes such as hemp milk, coconut milk, rice milk or oat milk)
– 1 teaspoon of coconut oil (you can also use sesame oil or sweet almond oil)
– Some honey (or use another natural sweetener such as maple syrup, stevia)
Put milk and turmeric paste in a pot and cook on medium heat. Stir constantly and bring to a boil. Remove from heat. When the drink cools down, add honey and oil. The oil supplies you with healthy fats and further increases turmeric absorption.
Note that you can prepare larger quantities of paste as it keeps in the refrigerator for up to 40 days.
