Serves 4

Raw - Vegan - Alkaline - Gluten Free - Paleo - Sugar Free

Aids to flush out the lymphatic system and reduce swelling


  • 6 cups of water divided
  • 2 in knob of ginger
  • 2 tsp tumeric powder
  • pinch of cayenne or 4-6 drops cayenne extract 
  • juice of 4 lemons


  • Raw Honey or Maple Syrup to taste


  1. Blend the water and ginger in a high power blend and then strain the mixture.
  2. Press the solids with the back of a spoon or spatula to pull as much juice out as possible.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the ginger water and blend for 30 seconds or shake in a jar.
  4. Keeps for 3-5 days in the fridge but best if consumed immediately. Shake well before drinking. 


  1. Add as much or as little heat as you like. If you don't have cayenne pepper you can blend a 1/2'' piece of your favorite pepper just make sure you are familiar with the heat of the pepper you are using so you don't blow your head off. I prefer Serrano or Fresno peppers in this blend. If you can find turmeric (use a 2'' knob) in its root form and have a juicer I would recommend juicing both the ginger and turmeric, but powdered turmeric is a perfectly acceptable substitute.
