Turmeric tea is pretty simple to make. Most recipes call for about 4 cups of water for every tablespoon of turmeric. Make sure your water is purified.

You can mix in some lemon and honey to give it the taste you prefer. Or perhaps there’s some other flavor you’d like to add. We’re certainly not the only ones who know how to make turmeric tea. Add in whatever you like. In addition to tea, there are several other turmeric uses that we’ll cover in this post so that you can take full advantage of all turmeric benefits.

Turmeric Benefits

As always, consult with your doctor before implementing any homeopathic remedies. Also, keep in mind that high doses of turmeric could cause gastrointestinal issues. Anyhow, just like everything else in life, simply use turmeric in moderation.

Turmeric is a member of the ginger family. It grows in very wet climates of India and Southeast Asia. Curcumin is the active ingredient found in turmeric which offers a variety of remedies. Turmeric has benefits for those with cancer, arthritis, high blood sugar, bowel disease and Alheimer’s disease…just to name a few.1

Topical Application

Adding turmeric powder to warm water will produce a creamy paste. If you don’t mind getting messy, you can apply this paste to wounds, swollen joints and inflamed muscles. However, if the idea of rubbing the yellow paste all over your body is unappealing to you, you could also take turmeric in capsules. Dr. Minerva Santos of Northern Westchester Hospital in New York recommends taking 1,000 milligrams of turmeric on a daily basis for those suffering from joint inflammation.2
