I’ve been experimenting with adding a variety of spices and coconut cream to my warm drink in the morning. Cinnamon, tumeric, black pepper, ginger and cloves all have wonderful medicinal properties and taste wonderful. My mom would always cook with all of these and tell us how nutritious they were. Gratitude to mom and to my teacher Dr. Mike Smith who wrote the article below. Niko is the herbalist at my clinic who originally inspired me along this route…great minds think alike!
