Gold Milk with a spin

From WebMD: Turmeric is used for arthritis, heartburn (dyspepsia), stomach pain, diarrhea, intestinal gas, stomach bloating, loss of appetite, jaundice, liver problems and gallbladder disorders. It is also used for headaches, bronchitis, colds, lung infections, fibromyalgia, leprosy, fever, menstrual problems, and cancer. Other uses include depression, Alzheimer’s disease, water retention, worms, and kidney problems. Some people apply turmeric to the skin for pain, ringworm, bruising, leech bites, eye infections, inflammatory skin conditions, soreness inside of the mouth, and infected wounds. 

Important For Women Seeking Pregnancy:

Turmeric should be taken in moderation or used in foods. Some medicinal history info suggests that it was used in ancient times as a birth control and it should not be taken by women who are pregnant or trying to become pregnant (though using it in cooking is fine). As with any herb or supplement, consult your doctor before using. When used externally, it will give the skin a light yellow hue for a little while after use and this can easily be washed off. This is not harmful just a temporary stain. #MyHerbalStudies”
