Anti-Inflammatory Lemonade

Anti-Inflammatory Lemonade

Anti-Inflammatory Lemonade

Prep: 5 minutes
Makes: 4-6 servings

This recipe is brought to you by Dr. David Jockers DMN DC MS.
I am recommending using all organic ingredients.

1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice.
4-6 cups filtered water, or to taste.
1 Tbs. MCT oil or extra virgin coconut oil (optional)
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground or freshly grated ginger (optional)
1 tsp. ground turmeric
1/2 tsp. liquid stevia, or to taste
pinch of pink salt or Redmond’s Sea Salt

Making It:
1. Place all the ingredients in a high powered blender and blend
until fully combined.
2. Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container in the
fridge up to one week. You may need to mix well it well each time
you want to drink it if you let it sit for awhile.

Drink this lemonade regularly. People who suffer from
crippling pain have reported that their symptoms improved
significantly after they made this an everyday drink.
It has powerful liver and kidney detoxifying abilities.

Add a pinch of black pepper, as this will dramatically improve the
absorption of the turmeric curcuminoids which absorb best with
good fats and peperine, which is the main ingredient in black pepper.
*(I added this as his option in case you’re interested to try it,
although personally I didn’t use it.)
*we make 64 oz. and we finish it in a week.
