anti-inflammatory-ginger-ale-2png-1

There's two variations here.

Ginger Ale. For adults.

And Anti-inflammatory Ginger Ale. For everybody.

Ginger is a natural digestive tonic and an effective treatment for nausea. Matthew has been experiencing nausea for 21 months straight.

Nothing really helps. Except drinking Ginger Tea. He drinks it daily.

But in summer that can get hot.

So I made up this Ginger Ale. It's sort of like a party!

It took awhile for me to get the strength right. The Ginger infusion needs to be wicked strong, so the ginger taste still bites you, even when it hits the ice & gets diluted with mineral water.

The anti-inflammatory version includes Ginger & Turmeric.

Because turmeric is everything awesome for your healing protocol.

Take the Assessment

Here's why:

  • Turmeric can alleviate intestinal inflammation, which we now know is the origin of illness;
  • It can counteract neurodegeneration, including conditions like Alzheimer's (perhaps because it improves intestinal health and thereby reduces systemic inflammation);
  • Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, can suppress cancer;
  • It has cardioprotective properties;
  • It improves arthritis symptoms;
  • Some scientists think it might be able to alleviate hyperglycemia and other effects of diabetes (because it can in mice);
  • Animal studies also suggest that curcumin can ameliorate chronic fatigue syndrome.

Of course, turmeric has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine.

As has Ginger.

So drink up...

Ginger Ale (for Adults)

 from Biohack U 

  • 6 thumbs of fresh Ginger Rhizome
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 750ml bottle of Mineral Water
  • Ice
  • 1 orange (optional)

Peel & chop the Ginger.

Add the chopped Ginger to the 4 cups of water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer and cook for 1 hour.

Pour the Ginger infusion, including the Ginger pieces into a glass container (a mason jar works well) and refrigerate until cold. If you will be refrigerating the infusion for more than a few hours you might decide not to include the Ginger pieces, unless you like your ale with extra bite~.

To serve, fill a tall glass with ice and squeeze in 1/4 of a orange (if using). Fill glass a little over half full withe the Ginger infusion and top with sparkling mineral water.

Anti-inflammatory Ginger Ale

from Biohack U

  • 5 thumbs of fresh Ginger Rhizome
  • 5 fingers fresh Turmeric Rhizome
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 750ml bottle of Mineral Water
  • Ice

Peel & chop the Ginger & Turmeric.

Add the chopped Ginger & Turmeric to the 4 cups of water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer and cook for 1 hour.

Pour the Ginger~Turmeric infusion, including the Rhizome pieces into a glass container (a mason jar works well) and refrigerate until cold. If you will be refrigerating the infusion for more than a few hours you might decide not to include the Rhizome pieces, unless you like your ale strong~.

To serve, fill a tall glass with ice. Fill glass a little over half full with the Ginger~Turmeric infusion and top with sparkling mineral water.

Note: Black Pepper increases the bio-availability of Turmeric, but is not part of the elimination phase of the Autoimmune Protocol. If it was on our list, I'd be tempted to put a pinch in the saucepan with the Rhizomes~.

Ginger Ale Picnic: Fill a Mason Jar with Ice, bring your Cold Ginger Infusion in a 2nd Mason Jar, a bottle of Mineral Water & if you're adding an Orange, don't forget a knife.

If you're adroit, you can get half the ice & half the Ginger infusion in each jar.
