Awesome Raw Turmeric Cocktail
Sheleana lost 45lbs, healed her body of infertility, re-balanced her energy from extreme adrenal fatigue, reversed a hormonal imbalance that was threatening her life, and restored her body to optimum health. She and Caleb now dedicate their lives to teaching others how to do the same.
This fantastic duo on their blog shares valuable information about raw beauty recipes, raw and vegan recipes, health and nutrition.
Today’s recipe, the anti-inflammatory turmeric coctail juice might not be the most delicious juice you have ever tried, but it offers you numerous benefits and is extremely powerful! Sheleana likens the version with coconut water to “drinking pickles!”
Whatever you do to alternate its flavor to taste, do not discount this magic elixir. Turmeric contains magical anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents, as well as having natural antibiotic, antiseptic, and analgesic properties. It purifies your blood, assists fat metabolism, it can improve digestion, heals stomach ulcers, lowers cholesterol, prevents gas and bloating, it can help with acne and psoriasis, arthritis and so on. It is just awesome.
Originally, Sheleana posted this juice as a remedy for sore joints and menstrual cramps, as well as a way to reduce inflammation and repair your muscles faster after a workout. Obviously, everybody is different, but we would suggest you to give it a try and avoid those toxic menstrual cramp tablets. You can use both the coconut water shots and the green juice mixture as well, since they work a treat.
Raw’s Turmeric Cocktail
- 1 inch piece of turmeric root (or 1-2 tsp of ground turmeric powder)
- 2 stalks celery
- 1 inch nob of ginger
- 1 whole cucumber
- 1 peeled lemon
- Use a juicer to process all ingredients.
- Whatever your preference, enjoy it strained or unstrained.
- Serves 1.
Alternatively, you can mix the 1 oz of juiced turmeric root with a cup of raw coconut water. This acts as a “carrier” delivering more nutrients to the cells.
Drink either version of the turmeric mixture right away and you can do this several times daily.
Extra tip: If you’re new to juicing or fresh roots, you should be aware that turmeric is very cleansing and will probably need to use the restroom frequently, but this is normal.
