Golden Milk, or turmeric milk, has become quite popular lately. And for good reasons.
Turmeric has been used as a spice in Indian recipes and as an Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. It offers many health benefits since it has both anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties.
Turmeric is also used to relieve swelling and pain due to headaches and wounds and is called ‘natural aspirin’ in Ayurvedic medicine.
When combined with other healing ingredients in this Golden Milk, it helps you to sleep well at night, it balances your hormones, and it’s warming, soothing and delicious.
As a bonus, I’ve found that Golden Milk helps to relieve menstrual cramps.
It’s also incredibly easy to make! Here’s my favorite recipe.
First, cook a Golden Paste by blending 5 tablespoons virgin coconut oil, 1/2 cup organic turmeric powder, 1 cup water, and 1.5 teaspoons black pepper in a pot and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Cool and keep it in the refrigerator in a jar. It’ll keep for about two weeks.
To make the Golden Milk, warm 2 cups of almond milk (or rice milk, coconut milk or your personal favorite milk) and 1 teaspoon of Golden Paste in a pot. Whisk until fully mixed. Add cinnamon to taste.
Irina emits a healing energy that just feels good to be with. Each time we've met, I've relaxed into her presence, openness, authenticity and ability to offer support. She has helped me gain the perspective I needed to be more compassionate and gentle with myself. If you're ready to do the hard work of personal growth, I'd highly recommend partnering with Irina.
For me, it was a very magical experience to see how Irina could feel where my body's energy was 'stuck' and how she could guide me through unblocking it. In the end, I just felt the energy flowing through my body in a part where I don't think I ever felt it flowing like that before, or at least not for the last years that I can remember. I literally felt like my body was saying, "hello, there you are!".
I went into our first session feeling disconnected from my femininity, having had a long history of feeling stressed and anxious and not caring for myself enough. After putting Irina's advice into practice between sessions, I feel so much more connected to myself, aware of my cycle, and much more of a woman than ever.
