These easy to make powerful antioxidant supplements are modeled on Burmese medicine pills. Turmeric in particular. In Myanmar there are several grades of turmeric, some are especially medicinal and used for specific purposes. One of the things the Burmese use turmeric for is purifying the blood...especially after childbirth. It is mixed with wild forest honey and made into pills which are taken by the woman for at least two weeks after giving birth.
In helping my mother with pancreatic cancer I have come across a lot of information on various cancer-preventatives. One of them is an interesting so-called poor-man's cancer cure -- the molasses (or maple syrup) and baking soda mixture. Molasses is particularly high in minerals and B vitamins which are severely lacking in cancer patients. Cancer cells also love sugar-- but, the baking soda, once inside a cancer cell, breaks it down. The theory is the reason this cure is successful is because when the cancer cells uptake sugar they also uptake whatever is mixed with it
These homemade supplements are based on this theory that our cells love to metabolize sugars. Adding powerful antioxidants to honey is a fast way for our body's cells to uptake the antioxidants. This is a very simple recipe using some of the most powerful antioxidant spices.
Step 1: Mix Your Spices
In this recipe I used approximately:
- 1/2 c turmeric
- 1/4 c cinnamon
- 1/4 c clove
To this is added a pinch of black pepper and chili powder as these spices help the body to absorb the antioxidants even more efficiently.
If you don't have all of these spices just use whichever one you have, if you have some other powerful antioxidant herbs or spices you may want to experiment with adding them as well. The amounts don't really matter.
