We are holding our Pain and Inflammation workshop in Maleny on Sunday November 13th. This small group session with me involves education and practical applications for pain and inflammation relief from my extensive tool box of wellness tools.
The day starts at 10am with some Golden milk and a Kundalini Yoga and therapy session on pain and inflammation relief strategies.
This is followed by a workshop on wellness foods, medicines and techniques you can apply daily to help you reduce risk factors and develop your wellness.
We make some great foods that are easy to incorporate in your diet, have lunch and then we summarise the session and you take away a whole lot of my knowledge on how to help yourself. We finish at 2pm.
Better than any therapy session this workshop will give you the practical ” How too” information t make your life more comfortable with pain and inflammation care.
Please book online here
Here is my recipe for Golden milk for you to enjoy
We will have this delicious drink ready to welcome you to our workshop… Its so good and its just the start of the amazing information we will share with you at this workshop.
This is the drink for bones and joints. Golden Milk is perfect for anyone who has pain, arthritis, joint pain and for those who do a lot of exercise. Its perfect for yoga, sports people and make this drink for Pregnant ladies, elderly people who have pain and children going through growth spurts, This a beautiful recovery drink when you have a low appetite and need some good bone food. Also Just to add another benefit of Golden Milk, it is perfect on hot summer days, and cold winter days when there is either joint pain, inflammation or a feeling of too much fluid in the body. This is Magical Food as Medicine.
Almonds are very high in calcium and using Almond milk in this recipe is certainly the fastest way to good bone nutrition. You can use other milks such as fresh organic cows milk which had a very creamy and rich texture. You can GMO free Soy, Rice, Oat or Goats milk depending on your local tastes and preferences.
So much goodness for your body with Turmeric and Ginger These are both evidence based as anti inflamatory herbs, arthritis relief, they also help with cholesterol levels reducing Low density lipo proteins ( fast) in the blood. Turmeric also works to remove excess estrogen from the body and is known as a liver herb, tumor marker and cancer preventative antioxidant. Ginger is a circulation stimulant, liver herb, anti arthritis herb and also really helps with cholesterol levels and cardiovascular protection through the circulatory system. I understand that the traditional recipe contains only turmeric. However I added Ginger and love that Ginger twist to the drink. You can add other herbs too if you want to add in some extra qualities. However remember this is Golden Milk, so keep the herbs golden. Ideas include Calendula Flowers, Golden Seal root and Chamomile flowers. Honey is full of nutrients and is our preferred flavour for all sweet drinks. In my book The Magic of Food as Medicine we show you the latest clinical trials, evidence base and information about all of the herbal ingredients in this recipe
Golden Milk is a recipe for everyone. Its made with fresh Turmeric root and works well for you when you want a natural and nutritious anti inflammatory drink. I have added some ginger root into this recipe. But, do as you want. We also added almond milk to this recipe, However you can use cows, rice, oat or goats as you prefer. You can also use dried root instead of fresh. I always use 1/3 dry to what I would use fresh in weight. So, you will need to experiment with quantities yourself and add more or less of any of the herbs, salt and honey to your taste. Remember the stronger it is with the herbs the more medicinal it becomes.
This recipe makes about 1.2 litres and you can drink it warm. or pop in fridge for a cool summer treat.
What you need
2 big knobs of Turmeric root
Ginger root. to taste
1 pinch sea salt
1 big blob honey ( to taste)
1 litre Almond milk
How to make it
1. Cut the turmeric and ginger into small pieces
2. Add the turmeric root, ginger, salt, water and honey into a sauce pan and pop on the stove top and bring to the boil. Let it reduce the liquid by half so that you end up with 200ml of very yellow herby liquid.
3. Now, Pour in the almond milk and stir well. Let it get really hot, but not boil. Then strain the liquid away from the herbs then serve.
I hope you enjoyed my blog and my version of Golden Milk.
