This recipe was created for someone prescribed daily turmeric for its tonic effect and numerous health benefits. Stress being a greater threat to health and longevity than alcohol, in the case of this patient, cider (or beer) was added to the recipe as a relaxant; as well as, to increase patient fidelity to his health regiment. The choice of cider or beer offers a bit of variation in this prescription that must be imbibed each day, preferably before noon.
