Turmeric / Curcumin
If you love Asian or South Asian food, you’re probably familiar with this brightly-hued yellow-orange spice, one of the main ingredients in curry. (Aaaaaaand, now we’re hungry.) Turmeric is related to ginger and can add both color and flavor to your favorite foods and even your smoothies. It's also got medicinal properties, thanks to the potent chemical compound curcumin, which helps tackle inflammation. That’s why turmeric is getting a lot of attention these days—sure, there’s some hype, but there are also lots of health benefits that are backed by studies. There's really no downside to adding this warming, healing spice to your life!

Anyone have advice on supplements? Had an Urgent Care Dr suggest Ginger and Tumeric for inflammation but neither my RA Dr or PCP thought this would help. Checked online and neither would mess with my meds. I’m big on self advocate but RA is all fairly new to me and I’m still trying to figure it out-thanks for any insight!

Ceremony Wellness: Ayurved-ish with Anjali Bhargava
I’m always so excited when I get to meet new friends. Liza Killian, who was on the show a few weeks ago (episode #26, in case you missed it), told me about Anjali Bhargava when we were getting coffee in LA. She kept going on and on about the best turmeric mix she’s ever had in her life, and how sweet the creator of the company is. I did my stalking, bought some products, and lo and behold, Liza was so right. Bija Bhar’s Resilience Turmeric Elixir is so carefully sourced. It’s made from Hawaiian turmeric that is never boiled, and it’s blended with ginger, whole lemon, lemon peel, maple sugar, and black pepper - so it’s highly absorbable in your body. I love throwing it into hot water, and then into the blender, so it’s all frothy and delicious. It’s the perfect way to start the morning - or for that afternoon pick-me-up. Turmeric, in case you didn’t know, is highly anti-inflammatory, and a huge staple in my diet for internal healing. Anjali is such a beautiful soul, building this brand from the ground up, making so much of this by herself in her Brooklyn kitchen - and she does it with so much love.

The Life Stylist: East By West - Ayurveda Meets Paleo Conscious Cuisine with Jasmine Hemsley
We all go on our own journeys with food. I’ve gone through quite a few phases in my journey – from hardcore vegetarian to hardcore raw protein to, now, something more balanced and less inflammatory. Now I don’t care what you eat – you can eat a sofa if you want – but a lot of people mindlessly eat more than their fair share, a lot of the time. That doesn’t help you, and it doesn’t help the world. The key to finding the optimal diet for your body is appreciating your food, and being more conscious about when it serves you and when it doesn’t. Of course, we live in a fast-paced world. Finding and preparing the best food doesn't always feel easy – and that’s where today’s guest, Jasmine Hemsley, comes in. Jasmine is a wellbeing expert and creator of the East by West, a modern take on Ayurvedic principles & recipes for today’s busy world. Beginning with a pop up cafe in London, East by West is now a cookbook containing 140 delicious (and simple) recipes that focus on using the ancient Ayurvedic philosophy of eating to nourish, sustain, and repair. The Vedic lifestyle isn’t about strict rules or regulations, and it’s really a lot less stressful than most diets – it’s simply a philosophy for living well that emphasizes bringing balance into your lifestyle. Ready for the ultimate mind-body balance? –Luke
