Holli Thompson, author of Discover Your Nutritional Style (Sunrise River Press, 2014), suffered from years of migraines, allergies, rheumatoid arthritis, weight gain and more before turning to holistic nutrition. Now an advocate of eating for health and wellness, Holli gives us a non-traditional look into personalized nutrition. The following excerpt is from chapter 1, “Your Nutritional Style.”

You can buy this book from the Mother Earth Living store: Discover Your Nutritional Style.

Turmeric, the spice that gives curry powder its yellow color, has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger has both anti-inflammatory and antibiotic properties. Together they make a potent healing combination. Try it when you’re down with a winter cold—the zingy flavor will help you feel better.

Healing Tea with Turmeric and Ginger


• 2 cups water
• 1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger
• 1/2 tsp turmeric
• 1 tbsp raw, local honey
• 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice


Heat the water in a small saucepan until it is nearly boiling. Add the ginger and turmeric. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Strain the liquid into a mug and stir in the honey and lemon juice. Drink while still hot.
