Healing Spicy Drink for Many Ailments that Cleans The Body of Toxins

Turmeric, ginger and cinnamon are powerful natural ingredients with a lot of health benefits. In this article I’ll provide you a recipe that combine these three ingredients (as well as other ingredients) to create a healing natural drink. This drink has a very strong anti inflammatory properties. The combination of all the ingredients in this natural drink could serve as a medicine for numerous diseases and it could possibly help to detox your body from toxins and kill parasites.

Here are the main ingredients in this natural drink.



Ginger root, which is available to us all year round in every supermarket or market, can work wonders when it comes to our health.

Ginger has been known for over two thousand years as a medicinal herb effective in treating digestive problems, nausea, hangover and bloating.

Ginger has anti cancer properties because of its powerful antioxidant compounds and anti-inflammatory properties. Scientific studies have found that it is effective in the treatment of vomiting, protects the gastric mucosa and improves inflammatory conditions.

For example, a comprehensive scientific review of the ginger extract 6-gingerol found that it has anticancer properties. Many studies point to experimental and clinical studies that have found that ginger has the potential to treat tumors and prevent the spread of malignant cancer cells.

You can find a lot of useful information on how to use ginger as a potent medicine in my article on how to use ginger as a medicine.


Turmeric is anti-aging, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory super spice. Curcumin is the magical substance, which gives turmeric its golden color and its many health benefits, has been well-studied over the past decades. It works as a powerful antioxidant and has anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties.

Turmeric is jam packed with healthy nutrients, vitamins and minerals and is a powerful and effective compound for treating a wide range of diseases.

The medical journal Molecules reported that the therapeutic effects of curcumin in cancer treatment have been studied for over 40 years. In laboratory trials, curcumin has shown the potential to prevent tumors and also inhibit their spread.


Studies have revealed that turmeric has low absorption and rapid metabolism that lead to relatively low bioavailability in the body. To increase its absorption in your body, make sure to consume turmeric with these ingredients.

For more information about turmeric, read my article about the 12 reasons to consume turmeric.


Cinnamon is one of my favorite spices. I use it a lot for flavoring food and I absolutely love its sweet scent.

What’s good about it is that it’s not only smells and tastes good, it’s also full of medicinal properties that can contribute a lot to your health. When you buy cinnamon, opt for Ceylon cinnamon which is the best. You can see a picture of Ceylon cinnamon in this article.

The use of cinnamon for medicinal reasons is becoming an increasingly popular natural health practice for several reasons.

Cinnamon has a wide variety of medical benefits, ten of which I’ve discussed in this article. For example cinnamon has antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties that promote good health.


Laboratory studies have found that polyphenols from cinnamon can inhibit the spread of cancer cells.

Then there is the natural and safe appeal cinnamon has to offer: it is one of the easiest and most delicious ways to incorporate natural health into your diet.

Extra Virgin Coconut oil

Coconuts are a food packed with nutritional benefits thanks to their natural medium chain saturated fatty acids, or medium chain triglycerides (MCTs)

It’s the same fats that gives extra virgin coconut oil the ability to flush out internal parasites.

You can use coconut oil to improve your skin’s appearance, treat scalp conditions, lose weight, boost your intestinal health, and get rid of fungal infections.


A scientific review of studies found that coconut oil has nutritional and functional properties. The research has found that coconut oil has many potential uses to protect against various diseases. In fact, I’ve already discussed the scientifically proven uses and benefits of coconut oil.

Many people mix coconut oil into smoothies or other beverages, but it can be used in many different recipes.

Using more coconut oil in your daily routine is also one of the 70 habits featured in my e-book 70 Powerful Habits For A Great Health.


Natural honey is an excellent raw ingredient for your health: add it to bath water, use honey as a face mask or as a relaxing drink – and you will gain its anti-bacterial properties that help treat infections, skin problems, emotional stress and will also help you to lose weight.

Scientific studies about honey have shown it has antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antitumor properties.

The main ingredient in honey is fructose (sugar from fruit source), which gives it long lasting durability. Compared to white sugar, fructose decomposition in the body is more slowly, resulting in a moderate increase in blood sugar levels.

Honey also contains proteins, minerals (such as iron, copper, phosphorus, potassium and sodium), enzymes and vitamins, especially B group. For more information about honey, read my post on how to use honey as a medicine for great health.

Turmeric Ginger Cinnamon Drink – A recipe for a medicine for numerous diseases

Here is a recipe for a healing tea which is a natural remedy for many diseases, it kills parasites and cleans the body of toxins:

1/2 teaspoon of ginger powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon honey
1 cup of warm water

Mix all the ingredients together.

  1. Dana says:

    Is this a daily thing and is there a better time of day to drink it?

    • Jenny says:

      For best results you can drink it everyday but there is no specific time to drink it. Any time of the day is good.

      • Alisa says:

        you definitely can’t drink that everyday! because a) coconut oil is highly allergenic and b) cinnamon can’t be consumed in big amounts because its toxic and damages liver, c ) turmeric can be contaminated with lead so you have to check your source. moderation is the key to everything
        so next time you give someone advice bother to study pros and cons, before they had serious consequences!

        • Jenny says:

          Hi Alisa, I disagree to what you say: A) for people who don’t have any food allergy, coconut oil can be consumed daily. B) 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon is not considered to be a large quantity. It is considered to be a normal food quantity. C) the same goes for turmeric. 1/2 tsp. is fine to use on a daily basis. D) You can disagree to what I say – so lets agree to disagree.

          • Kathy says:

            I agree with you Jenny. I already consume these ingredients in excess of what you are suggesting everyday. Is there a benefit to having them together as apposed to thought out the day in parts? Also if you buy organic and know your sources, ie visit the farm you are buying from at the farmers market, you run less risk of toxins.

          • Jenny says:

            Hi Kathy, you can consume each of the spices separately throughout the day. You don’t have to use them together.

          • Shirley Kirk says:

            How much do you consume daily?

          • Jenny says:

            Once or twice daily is enough.

          • Irene says:

            Hi Jenny,
            I am a German woman and not very well in English.

            My information is that doctors recommend, to use at minimum 1 teaspoon of coconut each day. You can eat it without food, you can add it in your meal, can use it to bake with or for heating in a pan.
            I use often more than 1 tablespoon.

            What I miss in your recipe is black pepper. It is known that black pepper makes to turmeric (or kurkuma) much more usable for the boddy.
            I will add this to your ingredients with 1/8 tsb or a little less. I have to try it.

            I mix these parts with green tea (the amount with two sups of water) and it taste wonderful!

          • Jenny Hills says:

            Hi Irene, if you read my article about turmeric absorption, you will see that adding fat (such as coconut oil) aids in turmeric absorption. If you add coconut oil to this drink (such as in this recipe), you don’t need to add the black pepper. You can add either coconut oil OR black pepper. You don’t need to add both, unless if you want to, but they both do the same job.

          • Tommi says:

            Actually as an Indian female we put more than a tsp of turmeric powder or paste in our daily in curries. And cinnamon sticks. As well as ginger and garlic paste a 2 tsps at least in all meat, rice, lentils and beans type of food. It is beneficial or else all of them who consume such amounts (and more) would have suffered related toxicities which hasn’t happened. Of course you cannot have anything from the ground if it is high in arsenic, lead or such content.

        • Stacie says:

          Regarding the Cinnamon, there are two kinds, one is toxic and the most popular used often in commercial foods. The other is healthy and used medicinally.

          Cassian – This one has a high amount of Coumarin which could possibly cause liver problems if taken in large doses.
          Ceylon – This is the only cinnamon to use if you wish for health benefits without the toxic effect.

          For coconut oil, if you are not allergic, this is a wonderful addition and will help fight yeasty bugs. Be sure to go for the less processed clean coconut oils such as nutiva.

          • John Trefry says:

            You are right! Ceylon. The others all have thinners, and can raise blood pressure. And most grocery store personnel have no idea what I am talking about when I ask about Ceylon. So I trust my health food store.
            AS far as toxicity… I have been eating at least 2 tbls of coconut oil a day in cooking, smoothies, in my coffee for oh, abot 5 years. Same with cinnamon (Ceylon) I’m nearing 60 and other than being overweight I’m in great health. Doc applauded all my “alternative” methods. i even taught him a few tricks. He’s now into “functional medicine” which I truly hope is the wave of the future.

        • Rebecca says:

          Wow. Must be nice to know everything and always be right. Btw, I consume coconut oil every day and the benefits are plain to see for me. You are very rude and your hubris is unnerving. It’s scary to think there are people out there like you who believe they have all the answers and everyone who disagrees is wrong. You’re kinda gross.

          • Jane says:

            Quite a rude group here. Buy organic supplements for starters. Not commercial garbage from the grocery store. I consume these foods well in excess of these tiny 1/2 tsp measurements. I get physicals from a holistic doctor who takes dozens of panels in blood work. My health is well above average with 0 ailments. If you disagree with this article that’s fine. But present yourself with dignity and be courteous.

        • fathun says:

          I totally disagree with you. We use the coconut products, like homely produced oil in the cooking , skin and hair. consume lot of its water, grated coconut and milk in our daily food for ages. We did not have any problem with it. But we started having cholesterol and other types problems after starting eating the industrialized vegetable oils. We use coconut products in all in our recipes

        • Laura says:

          Ceylon Cinnamon is not toxic, you can buy it from a whole food store and not worry about your consumption of it, it is good for you. Just the Cassia (normal) type is not good to have in large quantity – more than 0.5 teaspoons per day.

          • Andy says:

            Dont suporrt whole foods just buy it from aldi or walmart much cheaper and safer for the world. Whole foods has become currupt

        • Barry says:

          You’re correct Alisa the source is everything. You must be conscientious in choosing safe, efficacious ingredients eg. Frontier organic Ceylon Cinnamon..Nutiva raw, organic coconut oil..Omica liquid, turmeric extract.

        • Arlis says:

          Coumarin is the ingredient in cinnamon known to cause kidney, liver and lung damage. Cassia cinnamon is a very rich source of coumarin, and exceeding the upper limit is easily possible if you are consuming a lot of cassia cinnamon. In many cases, just 1-2 teaspoons could bring someone over the daily limit.

          Ceylon cinnamon, however, does not contain toxic levels of coumarin. Cassia cinnamon contains approximately 1% coumarin, while Ceylon cinnamon contains only 0.004%, or 250 times less. This is so low that it’s often undetectable. Always opt for the Ceylon variety. The cinnamon you buy in the grocery store is generally going to be Cassia. You may have to buy it online or in a specialty health store.

        • China says:

          I Agree With Jenny…
          As A Herbalist, And Medical Aesthetician (A.k.a.) Skin Specialist, since 2004…
          This is an Awesomeness! Combo…Coconut Is Amazing, from Head to toe! Cinnamon w/ Honey… Make a wonderful anti-aging facial mask…I personally drink, an Herbal combo tea of…
          Cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, honey and lemon or lime juice…And then sift the herbal remains, that will fall at the bottom, as either a facial scrub, or mix it together, for a nice detoxing facial mask…Leaving nothing to waste..

          Therefore; people, as Alisa…
          Should not tear down something, as well as, introducing fear into people, without giving statistics, or factional proof, to go, go with those claims…

          Do you have evidence?…Can you support your claims?…Unless you are an MD; or Dr. Medical Physician, and know, without a shadow of a doubt…Then, your opinions, hold no weight…

          Also Please, keep mind people, who read this…Everybody is different! Not every person can eat peanuts, because of allergies…

          Not everyone, can eat honey, because of allergic reactions, they may have to bees…But this doesn’t mean it’s bad or poisonous…
          We are all Different! PERIOD!…Just keeping it Real!

        • Ramona says:

          Ceylon cinnamon does not contain coumarin, only cassia cinnamon does. Coumarin damages the liver. Nevertheless, as with everything, moderation is the answer.

      • dante says:

        Hi Jenny, is this mixtures can be consume once?

      • Romona Garlon says:

        Can you drink this tea in the evening or night

    • Christy says:

      I added fresh ginger root and Stevia Clear and blended. It so delicious. Thanks for this great recipe and I have discovered my favorite tea for the morning ritual.

  2. saba says:

    don v have to bring it to boil togther???

    • Jenny says:

      You don’t have to bring it to the boil – you can if you want to just like preparing a tea – but you can just mix it with warm water. If you boil it don’t expose it to prolonged heat as not to destroy some of the nutrients that might be heat sensitive (if you want you can boil if for a few minutes only). Also if you boil it wait until it cools a bit before adding the honey as the boiling water will damage the nutrients in the honey.

  3. Sandra Winfrey says:

    Clarification purpose, the ginger root would you be able to use powdered or ground ginger?

    • Jenny says:

      Yes, you can – use 1/2 tsp. of powdered ginger (I’ve added it to the recipe) so thank you for the question.

  4. Sharon Jackson says:

    Must try the root ginger

  5. tina says:

    does this remedy really works??

  6. Peter Biggs says:

    I also add cayenne pepper, mustard and garlic with apple cider vinegar haven’t tried it with coconut oil but will certainly try. i grow most of the ingredients my self except cinnamon and honey but waiting till my plant grows but will most likely die waiting

  7. Gis says:

    Which diseases, help this recipe?
    Thank you

    • Jenny says:

      Under each ingredient I refer to the article about the many health benefits of that certain ingredient so you can see which ailments it is good for.

  8. Suman Kumar says:

    Hi….turmeric root will be better one to add with……..I want to know, should I use coconut water in place of coconut oil

    • Jenny says:

      Coconut water and coconut oil are 2 different things. Although both come from coconuts, coconut oil is made from mature coconuts, while coconut water is obtained from immature green coconuts. Coconut water does not contain all the medium chain healthy fatty acids that coconut oil contains (although it contains other health benefits that coconut oil does not contain). They are both excellent in their own way. You can read more about coconut water here.

    • rick says:

      Organic everything is a good rule. Turmeric and Black Pepper have a symbiotic relationship. Take together and your body will be able to benefit from taking turmeric. Without the black pepper there is little benefits : )

      • Stephanie Sterner says:

        Rick, I agree with you that black pepper helps the body to assimilate more of the turmeric. Turmeric is also fat-soluble, so the coconut oil will have a similar effect. So the drink will still provide a lot of benefit – but black pepper will make it even better.

  9. Diane says:

    I take a TBS of ginger, turmeric, coconut oil, and unpasturized honey every day in my smoothie without any ill effects. I have been able to reduce my fibromyalgia pain by 80% as compared to the drugs that that gives you all kinds of toxic side effects that just barely dulls the pain.

    • Lisa says:

      Hi Dianne, I am wondering what kind of smoothies you drink everyday? I am trying to find more healthy options so I love to hear others ideas…

      • Lance from Idaho says:

        I like to make my morning smoothies with over ripe peeled frozen bananas. I add apple juice too. These are the base to my smoothies. I then add frozen or fresh fruit to this base. Put all of your choices in a blender and blend until smooth. Tip: use more apple juice if blender does not chop and liquefy your fruit. Practice makes perfect!
        I can buy what they call or mark as “Red Taped Bananas”( these are bananas they seem to think they can’t sell because they are too ripe for the general public) at my store I can buy these for like 19 cents a pound. I then let them ripen to almost black but not too soft before i peel, place into freezer bags and freeze.
        I do not like to add milk like products to my smoothies. The bananas give the smoothies a creamy like texture.
        You can even pour these mixtures into pop-cycle molds. Just make sure to do it immediately, because you don’t want your mixture to thaw out too much.
        Use a butter knife to pry the frozen bananas apart.

    • Catt says:

      Hello could u tell me what else u put into your shake? And does are u able to make it taste good? I am asking because I’m trying to get my 14 yr old son to get it down! I currently make a paste with Coconut oil, raw honey, cinnamon, with a dash of Tumeric and have added syrup to try and get my son to like it enough to take with an adverse mental reaction! Lol… :p
      But even with the syrup he can’t stand it!…

    • Kathy says:

      Diane 1 tbs of each? I make a similar recipe to this but I use either homemade almond or coconut milk with mine. Today I added cardamom and vanilla extract. Wonder if I’m adding something I shouldn’t be adding? It taste good though.

  10. yusha says:

    can i add tea or coffee to this recipe? worried about the taste, so perhaps tea or coffee could mask it

    thank you

  11. princess says:

    pls is this good for a pregnant woman?

    • Jenny says:

      In normal food quantities it’s fine for pregnant women. It is the concentrated form (like supplements) or consuming excessive amounts that are not recommended for pregnant women.

  12. Joy says:

    If I grind up ingredients and freeze them so it’s easy to work with daily will that change anything as far as the benefits in the ingredients.

  13. harriet says:

    I’m type 2 diabetic is honey good for my condition and this mixture it can also help with lowering blood sugar?

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Harriet, you can read the articles Can a Diabetic Eat Honey? as well as the article by Dr. Asquel Getaneh A Taste of Honey for more information about the subject. There is also a research about the effect of honey on blood lipids in diabetic (see here). If you have any doubts, it’s always a good idea to talk to your doctor about the right amount for your condition.

  14. Lynne says:

    Hi, I cannot use Coconut in any form, what should I use as a replacement?

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Lynne, the coconut oil has 2 purposes: 1. anti inflammatory and anti parasitic effects. 2. Increases turmeric absorption – turmeric has a low absorption in the body and it needs fat for a better absorption. If you want to replace coconut oil, you can use other cold pressed oils that have anti inflammatory effect such as hempseed oil, flaxseed oil, black seed oil or extra virgin olive oil. Another option is to omit the oil and replace it with a little bit of black pepper which also aids turmeric absorption (read more about turmeric absorption here).

    • Stephanie says:

      Instead of Coconut oil, half a tablespoon of black pepper helps with Turmeric absorption as well.

  15. Maria says:

    I, have Lupus do you recommend this for my problem? I, don’t take any meds!

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Maria, I guess that if you don’t take any medicines then there is no risk of any interaction, but since I’m not a doctor, it’s always a good idea to double check with your doctor, as you probably also need to follow certain nutritional guidelines given by your doctor as per your condition.

    • Jean says:

      Maria,I also have lupus. My body doesn’t seem to tolerate any of the meds well. I use the same ingredients listed but I put them in hot milk.I have found no need for meds once I discovered turmeric milk. I’d suggest using all the ingredients at the same time or in the same drink rather than separated throughout the day. I don’t recall this recipe adding red pepper, I add a dash of that too.

  16. Amanda says:

    Do you know if it is safe for pregnant women to drink?

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Amanda, as long as it’s in normal food quantities, it’s fine. It’s not advisable to take it in large quantities or in concentrated form (like supplements) without consulting with a doctor.

  17. Barb says:

    People in India mix these spices into dishes every day.

  18. Cristina C. Villega says:

    Is this tea good for a person with Vitiligo?

    • Jenny says:

      I don’t really know. I’ve seen several references about a topical application of turmeric and mustard oil for vitiligo, but I don’t know how effective it is.

  19. Ruth says:

    does this recipe work with weight loss too? Along with exercise of course.

  20. Terry says:

    Hi Jenny,
    I go to the movies at least once a week – sometimes twice & always get a large popcorn. But instead of letting them put their butter on it – and instead of topping it with their “fake” butter, I take in my own container of Roasted Garlic Olive Oil to drizzle over the popcorn before sprinkling with Dill popcorn seasoning.
    The label on the bottle lists this: Per two tsp: Fat 9g; Saturates 1.5g; Trans 0g; Polyunsaturates 1g; Omega6 0.9g; Omega3 0.1g; Monounsaturates 6g.
    My question is – is this healthy to put on popcorn (fat-wise)?? I’m on meds for cholesterol so don’t want to raise my cholesterol levels.
    Would it be healthier to use coconut oil for this?
    Thanks in advance for your info.

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Terry, most of the fat in the roasted garlic olive oil is monounsaturated fat. According to the American Heart Association, monounsaturated fats can have a beneficial effect on your heart when eaten in moderation and when used to replace saturated fat and trans fat in your diet. Virgin coconut oil is also a good option if consumed in moderation but since it’s solid under 25 degrees Celsius, it’s less convenient to drizzle it, so extra virgin olive oil is easier option.

      • Sandy says:

        We just use Organic Virgin Coconut Oil… & sometimes a LITTLE sprinkle of Steak seasoning… I do not miss the butter or the salt.

  21. Kay says:

    Could you have detox symptoms after beginning to drink this tea?

  22. Magda says:

    Hi Jenny, Is it ok to drink it few times a day? I had my first one today (was waiting for coconut oil to arrive) and absolutely love it!

    • Jenny says:

      I’ve seen references advising that you can get up to about one teaspoon a day of each of the spices in the drink if you are ingesting it in powdered form, so it’s best not to over-consume it and probably limit it to about twice a day.

      • Magda says:

        Thank you for that will be my night drink then and perhaps a mid morning as well. Will probably start with one a day and see what happens. This website is so good – thanks!

  23. Conrad says:

    I’m approaching 70 and my morning drink has been a great cup of tea consisting of PG Tips black tea pyramid bag steeped for about 12 minutes, 2 teaspoons of organic honey, organic half & half and 1/2 a teaspoon of cinnamon, turmeric, and ginger. (A little heavier on the ginger). This is truly medicinal and delicious.I have allergic asthma and this seems to help tremendously. I can go for long periods without using albuterol. It also gives a general feeling of well being. Would not go a day without it!

  24. Fran says:

    Don’t forget some black pepper. It enhances the healing effects of the turmeric.

    • Jenny says:

      In this recipe there is no need for black pepper because there is coconut oil. Piperine in black pepper indeed helps turmeric absorption and bio-availability, but so does oil – see more about it in my article How to Optimize Turmeric Absorption for Super Boosted Benefits. Either oil or black pepper will do the job.

      • Rocky says:

        Hi Jenny,

        I read somewhere, I can’t remember where and I wish I could, that black pepper, specifically piperine (spelling?)is bad for the liver if consumed for long periods of time. I use coconut milk and ghee in my Golden Milk, and that should be enough fat to aid in the absorption of the curcumin IMHO. The ghee adds great flavor.

        • Jenny Hills says:

          Hi Rocky, adding fat to turmeric also aids in turmeric absorption (as turmeric is fat soluble), so in this case you don’t have to add black pepper (piperine). As for consuming piperine for extended periods of time – As per Dr. Weil, you would have to use a lot of pepper for a long time to get into trouble. He also says that black pepper can be an irritant of the GI tract, urinary tract, and prostate, and he doesn’t think it should be consumed frequently in quantity. I think that you need to remember that we are talking about a tiny amount of black pepper (a pinch), so it’s really up to you. As I’ve said in my article about turmeric absorption, you can use either black pepper or fat.

  25. Alyssa Fullmer says:

    Hi! I am a healthy person as far as I am aware and I would like to know how this drink may affect me. Will it help me have more energy during the day? Or are the effects of its healthy properties limited to healing certain diseases and killing parasites?

    • Jenny says:

      You don’t need to be sick or feel unwell to enjoy the benefits of consuming food that is good for your body. These spices are good for digestion, have antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties and much more, and I’ve discussed their benefits in specific articles (links in the article itself). They are good for a general maintenance of a healthy body too.

  26. Geoff says:

    Is this good for cleansing and removing acid from the kidneys?

  27. Theresa says:

    Can I make a large batch then take out for each serving?

    • Jenny says:

      Yes, you can.

      • Sharon Taylor-Hamilton says:

        Would you give me a recipe for a large batch using cinnamon and ginger powders?

        • Jenny Hills, Medical Writer and Researcher says:

          It’s very easy – if for example you want it for 1 liter (which is around 4 cups) – you just multiple all the quantities in the recipe in 4 (as the recipe is for 1 cup). so 1/2 tsp. becomes 2 tsp. and 1 tsp. becomes 4 tsp. And so on – for 2 liters of drink (about 8 cups) – you multiple the quantities in the base recipe in 8.

  28. Charlotte says:

    Hi – I just found this recipe while searching for natural cures for parasites and I am going to try it but with Manuka honey instead of regular honey as I read that manuka honey is also good for getting rid of h pylori naturally. Is this a good idea?

    • Jenny says:

      Yes, it is. Manuka honey is known to have a much higher concentration of a natural antibacterial compound called methylglyoxal (MGO) compared to regular honey. Manuka honey is also mentioned in my article about how to treat H. Pylori (Helicobacter Pylori) Naturally. When you buy Manuka honey, make sure it has high MGO value – the higher the MGO rating in Manuka honey the higher the level of anti-bacterial activity in the honey.

  29. Mmyama Blank says:

    I consume tumeric, ginger and coconut oil everyday in my smoothies along with spirulina…

  30. Osbert says:

    Having mixed all the ingredients – do you now strain them to remove the solids or simply drink the mixture as is??/

    • Jenny Hills says:

      You don’t need to strain it. When you use the spices in their powdered form, you will have them as a sediment that eventually sinks at the bottom of the cup, so while drinking it you can occasionally gently stir it, or what I do is just slightly shake/swirl the liquid in the cup with my holding hand when it’s not full and while drinking it so the sediment is evenly spread in the drink rather than sinking at the bottom. In this case you don’t end up with a last sip full of grittiness.

      I strain mine and also use peppermint tea. This was the recipe I found. It also suggested adding lemon juice which I did and a few drops was very good also.

  31. Jay says:

    Can this be combined with a probiotic or would you not recommend this?

    • Jenny Hills says:

      Hi Jay, I’m not sure if you refer to probiotic supplement or probiotic food but in any case your question raises the issue as to what is the best time to consume probiotics – before, with or after meals. I have talked about this issue in my article about 9 Reasons To Take Probiotics And Why It’s So Good For You, and I’ve included some references there – see under the title “When to Take Probiotics – Before, With or After Meals?” in the beginning of the article.

    Hi Jenny,
    What a great article. Thanks for taking the time to write it and put yourself out there. I applaud your decorum in dealing with the haters. You definitely came out on top! I love the information I’ve found here.

    Going to start this tonight for relief from rheumatoid arthritis. Thanks for the info

  34. Roseanne says:

    Jenny, is this drink safe and beneficial for someone with breast cancer? Thank you.

    • Jenny Hills says:

      Hi Roseanne, usually consuming these spices in a normal food quantity is fine, but since I’m not a doctor, and since you have a special condition, I believe the safest way would be to discuss it with your doctor to make sure that there is no interactions between one or more of the ingredients and the medications that you currently take. It’s best to be on the safe side of things and get a “green light” from your doctor first.

    Hi jenny , just one question can you consume this drink while breastfeeding .

  36. SUNI says:

    I hv started taking this drink twice a day…. Early morning and bed time …. Jst wanted to knw if it helps clear melasma… Pigmentation of the skin….


    • Jenny Hills says:

      No, it doesn’t help for melasma. Melasma is very difficult to get rid of. You can try this turmeric face mask or diluted ACV or even pure aloe vera to lighten pigmentation. It can take quite a long time until you notice improvement, and results vary between different people.

  37. samuel says:

    Now for those of us who can’t get the turmeric here in Nigeria west Africa , what can we use to substitute it? Can this combination cure prostate cancer, fibroid and arthritis?

    • Olusola says:

      Of course you can get turmeric in Nigeria, especially in the southwest. It is called ajo in Ondo state and looks like a cross between ginger and carrots with a deep orange colour when cut. It is actually in season now.

    • Oluwapraise says:

      You can get it anywhere in Nigeria
      It is even quite cheap. Just ask in the local market. You can even get the powdered form too.

  38. GINA STEVENS says:

    Should you strain this before drinking? And, should you steep the spices in the water for a few minutes before drinking?

    • Jenny Hills says:

      Hi Gina, there are various methods of making drinks such as tea (or herbal infusion in this case) in which you steep the herbs for a few minutes and then strain them if you want. Another way is just adding them to smoothies or water and honey and then you don’t strain them and just consume them as part of the drink, such as in this case. There is no right or wrong and it up to your own preference. Many people think that steeping herbs makes them to lose their potency due to the heat that destroys nutrients, whereas consuming them fresh has more health benefits, but as I previously wrote in the case of ginger and turmeric, this is not necessarily the case, so whatever method you choose if fine.

  39. Still Water says:

    Drink it every day, esp. in the morning and make sure to add black pepper and cayenne to help the absorption of turmeric. I also add black seed oil and flax seed oil.

  40. Jemmy says:

    Hi, Jenny
    Alis said “cinnamon can’t be consumed in big amounts because its toxic and damages liver”,so for how long will we take so that it will not damages our liver?

    • Jenny Hills says:

      It depends which type of cinnamon you refer to. There are different types of cinnamon, Cassia and Ceylon cinnamon. The advantage to Ceylon cinnamon is that it has very low coumarin levels. Coumarin is a naturally occurring toxin which has the potential to damage the liver in high doses, and cassia cinnamon is a main source of coumarin. So for people who are cinnamon lovers and consume large amounts of cinnamon, Ceylon Cinnamon is the best choice. See how to distinguish between the two types of cinnamon in my article.

  41. lornah says:

    Thank you Jenny for this great information. Here in Kenya we have plenty of these ingredients. Can we give this drink to children and age please? I will surely share to my great institution. Keep educating us dear.

    • Jenny Hills says:

      Don’t give your child any honey before he or she is 1 year old. This is because occasionally honey can contain bacteria that can cause food poisoning (botulism) in babies.

  42. Gregory says:

    Hi Jenny. I have had Lyme for three years and now retested for chronic lyme. Will this help that or do you have another suggestion. Thank you

    • Jenny Hills says:

      Hi Gregory, chronic Lyme disease can cause some people to develop serious symptoms that are hard to resolve, such as problems in the nervous system, muscles and joints, heart, digestion and more. I haven’t researched this subject and I’m not a doctor, so I don’t know much knowledge about it. I believe that such a case requires professional medical treatment or consulting with a specialist. You may also want to have a look at the suggestions in WebMD website and CDC website.

      Just one comment – don’t add the honey to the boiling tea as it will destroy the nutrients in the honey. Wait until the tea has been cooled down a bit so it is warm but not boiling hot and then add the honey.
