The anti-inflammatory properties of both Ginger and Tumeric have been known and valued for centuries.

A client of ours recently shared her recipe for a natural anti-inflammatory remedy and we thought it was worth passing along to all of you. We do not have any specific research to support this particular “cocktail” but it can be a palatable way to add anti-inflammatory spices to your diet.
