  2. add 1/4 c tumeric and cook slowly till paste is formed - doesn't take long
  3. remove from heat and cool
  4. put in small jar in refrigerator

At night heat a mug of milk - any dairy or nut milk - with 1/2 to 3/4 t of tumeric paste and a small spoonful of ghee.


  1. DRINK ROOM TEMPERATURE WATER or warm to hot water.  HOT WATER is Ayurveda’s  best medicine; it kindles the digestive fire (agni), removes toxins, and refreshes our entire system
  2. DO NOT JUST DRINK 8 CUPS A DAY BECAUSE YOU HAVE READ YOU SHOULD.  It can actually weaken the digestive fire and lead to water retention.  Vata types are dry and need more; Pitta types are hot and need a large amount; KAPHA types need the least as water is one of it’s elements. 


Equal Amounts of Organic Sees

Coriander  + Cumin + Fennel

Kapha Types:  Roast mixture in small pan 1-2 minutes, put in teapot,  add hot water and drink with mint

Vata and Pitta Types :  Put in teapot, add hot water , may drink with mint

Excellent for stomach aches, digestion, gas or bloating.  Drink as often and as much as you remember to ~ very good for us!
