Delicious Painless Turmeric Holiday Spice Balls

I’m not going to lie. This is not my recipe. Actually my herbalist Angus Towse shared this Turmeric Holiday Spice Balls recipe with me and since they are so amazingly delicious and a pain reliever…I am sharing it with you.

Turmeric Holiday Spice Balls

The main pain ingredient is Turmeric which is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial plant of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae and is native to the Indian Subcontinent and Southeast Asia. Dried turmeric is good for general health and is considered a natural anti-inflammatory. It has as been used for thousands of years by the Chinese to cure pain like nausea, arthritis, headaches, menstrual cramps and muscle soreness. Adults can take 400 to 600 mg of turmeric extract three times per day or as directed.

Turmeric Balls Benefits

These Turmeric Holiday Spice Balls are a delicious way to serve up some pain relief. Don’t worry, they don’t get you high or anything. If you don’t like them too spicy you can cut back a bit on the ginger or the pepper. I would make the recipe as stated the first time and then you can play around with it a bit to see how you want to adjust. Just don’t mess with the turmeric measurements as these are medicinal.

Note, this for this recipe you will need a scale. You need to weigh out the ingredients. If you ask Alexa or Siri how many tablespoons there are in 100 grams she won’t laugh but will inform you, weight can’t be converted. Since this is a recipe for pain relief, measuring weight is key.

Also, unless you want your hands stained yellow for a few days, I strongly urge you to wear surgical gloves while making these. Using bare hands is a rookie mistake you will only make once.

  1. This looks amazing. I’ve pinned and copied out the recipe, ready to try. A couple of questions. I’ve been plagued by headaches for the past seven years. Finally found a medication that eliminates them!
    The problem is, there is caffeine in the pills which, I suspect is what makes them work.
    And said caffeine plays havoc with my heart.
    Can I pop one or two of these when the pain starts?
    Or just pop them at the beginning of the day?
    I would SO love it if these work!
    Thank you for sharing!
