So easy to include in your healing protocol.
And so valuable.
Turmeric, and it’s active ingredient curcumin, is known to alleviate systemic inflammation. That’s how it supports the reversal of autoimmune diseases and counteracts neurodegeneration, including conditions like Alzheimer’s. To find out more about the common link between these diseases, read The Origin of Illness.
It’s not surprising that most AIP bloggers include it in their recipes on a regular basis.
To spread the golden love (and help counteract the effects of all the baking that’s floating around at this time of year), I’ve gathered together 60 AIP-compliant recipes, to make it easy to include turmeric in your healing protocol.

Of course, you don’t need a recipe to up your consumption of turmeric.
Just sprinkle some in whenever you are cooking.
Our Functional Medicine Doctor puts 1/4 of a cup of it in his smoothie every morning~.
The only thing to beware of: it totally stains. If you get splattered with turmeric-infused liquid, your clothes will have yellow spots forever.
