I tried the recipe for turmeric tea with ginger and my sciatic pain subsided within a few minutes, not kidding! I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I had powdered turmeric but didn't have the powdered ginger so I used fresh ginger and no lemon. I microwaved the water in a Pyrex measuring cup along with the sliced ginger pieces, then added the turmeric and maple syrup, strained and drank. I didn't make it per cup as the recipe, but it worked. I will drink this every morning, as it is very difficult to get out of bed. I am so jazzed about this, woo hoo!
