My journey and my commitment to this sacred super food began while farming fresh organic turmeric in Hawaii with my dear friend Lindsey Wilner. The nutrient rich volcanic soil of Hawaii is the perfect place to cultivate this tropical herb and I was instantly and magnetically drawn to the turmeric rhizome*. We ate fresh turmeric right out of the ground and quickly noticed the transformational effects. My body and mind resonated deeply with the herb and my yoga practice was enlightened by the empowering nature of turmeric. Stiffness that I had experienced began to dissolve, and my energy levels increased.
When I left the farm, I made it my practice to always have fresh, living turmeric with me. For the next 10 months my relationship with turmeric evolved, and I continued to nurture and to expand my awareness of its incredible potential. I shared my passion and discoveries in the hope that others could empower themselves through turmeric.
After trying extracts and supplements, I came to realize that the best and most effective source of turmeric and curcumin was nature’s own fresh root. It was my dream to facilitate fresh enzymatic turmeric to the people and to formulate the world’s first ever fresh organic turmeric beverage.
