I LOVE turmeric!!!
I have been using Golden Paste on my fur babies for about the last 3 years…..& they just enjoy it in their dinner each night. My Rotti “Jax”, had occasionally walked like she’s in a bit of pain in her back legs & I really wanted to nip it in the bud before she had real problems. So I started her on the Golden Paste daily…..along with fish oils to ease the inflammation & reduce any pain.
And I truly believe it works. Not only does it help with pain & inflammation….but turmeric also helps the immune system & supports the liver – plus is a fantastic antioxidant. Both of my pups coats are amazing….& they just keep going from strength to strength.
The Golden Paste will keep for 2 weeks, refrigerated.
Freeze a portion if you think you have too much to use within two weeks. You can find small 1/4-1/2tsp molds to use for this if you prefer.
Add it to your pet’s dinner plate or your horse feed … run wild! You can even use for Golden Milk, Smoothies, stir into Yogurt, add to your dinner plate as a condiment… it’s just as good for you too!

Looking for a tasty midweek meal this week???
This vegetarian meal can be switched to replace the tofu with chicken/turkey/prawns if you prefer….& even the noodles can be of your choice…or even brown rice or quinoa if you’d prefer. Add any veggies in the fridge to pack them in there.
Turmeric is a great spice to have in your kitchen….it protects the liver, boosts the immune system & even reduces inflammation….particularly in muscles damaged post-exercise.
Here’s an easy way to include it in your daily diet….especially during the Activate NT program where you’re extending yourself a little more with exercise!!
Quinoa is a great protein & jam packed with nutrients too….& beetroot – well…also packed with nutrients such as calcium & magnesium whilst being great for your heart. Let alone the added veggies, eggs & cheese….I’d throw in some tasty herbs too!!
Cut it up into squares for the kids lunch boxes….or yours!
As I naturopath who specialises in women’s health….I do see a lot of women for fertility concerns. Ideally I need to see both partners as it really does take two to tango!
Not only does it involve me sharing the techniques to understand your body better to get the timing right for conception….but also making sure both sperm & ova are in their optimum health. It takes 76 days for sperm to mature….& 3-4mths for ova . Today’s sperm is reflective evidence of health ~11wks ago.
So if you start a preconception protocol with me today, then both partners need at least 3 months for optimum health & to carry a healthy pregnancy to full term. That’s without any hormonal balancing that may be needed by either partner.
Lifestyle factors & diet are also a consideration which is necessary to bring back the balance. Stress really does play a large part as it can throw out your hormonal balancing. Try meditation, yoga, flower essences, moderate exercise, massage, &’time out’ for you as an individual as well.
Good food choices with healthy fats included….plus plenty of water as hydration is also the key. Extra support is needed for some key nutrients such as zinc, selenium, folate & essential fatty acids – these can be discussed & individualised at an appointment.
Changing lifestyle habits that involve alcohol, cigarettes or recreational drugs really needs to be addressed. Support for this can also be discussed at an appointment.
This may seem overwhelming at first when you are thinking about starting a family…..but these points really can improve your chances in having a happy & healthy pregnancy. Plus your child will benefit long after their time in the womb. Three months really is such a short time when you are looking at creating a new little being which is part of your life forever!
