Around the same time a most lovely friend of mine who is rather wise in all things good for the soul happened to post a picture on her Facebook page of a cuppa turmeric tea. It was one of those moments where I though mmmm that looks tasty I'm going to try that, little did I know that it would indeed start a cascade of changes that would completely re jig so many parts of my everyday.
You see Facebook and instagram aren't all evil......;)
So I drank a cup of yellow tea, I was hooked
(though a big spoonful of honey or in my case sweet freedom did make a difference) and in my usual way consumed many more cups of delicious tea over the next week or so. One morning I got up and thought to myself hold on my back isn't hurting...why is this so....typed away of the tin'ternet and found the amazing info that is out there regarding turmeric. So I went out and purchased it in tablet form as there was far too much almond & coconut milk being consumed...in fact could of probably kept a small army in drinks for a year to two.
So tablets morning and night...no back pain. This is fab I thought but that little cynical parrot muttered in my ear and so I stopped the turmeric to see if it was making a difference or my back had repaired itself. Ten days later my back began to ache and so straight back on the turmeric and within a week or so back to pain free...phew. I am a convert to the yellow powdery stuff and indeed it will be something I take for life.
The next chapter takes a bit of a twist....with lots of fruit and vegetables, a rather loud machine and a good old clear out...that indeed is a tale for another day.
