Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric Drink

February 10th, 2020 Drink of the Week

golden drink with ice

Mr D’s uncle gave me this recipe after it was given to him by his Osteopath to deal with pain in his hands and lower back – as a natural alternative to anti-inflammatory tablets. He says it’s worked wonders for him, so now Mr D is taking it for his sciatica pain. And I’ve been drinking it just because it’s lovely and warming and makes me feel very healthy! This recipe makes a lot of the turmeric mixture which will keep for a few weeks in the fridge.


8 cups water
4 tsps dried turmeric
8 tsps crushed ginger
2 lemons


Juice the lemons and set the juice aside
Cut up the remainder of the squeezed lemons (rind etc)
Simmer all ingredients for 20 minutes
Strain through a sieve
Add lemon juice

To make each drink mix 40% of the turmeric cordial with 60% fizzy water. Drink one large glass per day for the best anti-inflammatory results.
