Three of these herbs are considered panaceas and may beneficially support all body functions/processes and thus overall health. Sold as 15-day (2.4 oz), 30-day (4.8 oz.), and 60-day (9.6 oz.) sizes. Our subscription version is available only in the 60-day (9.6 oz.) size and is shipped every two months with FREE SHIPPING to ensure your uninterrupted and timely supply.
A daily amount of 1-1/2 tsp is suggested, and most customers simply sprinkle into coffee, tea, smoothies, oatmeal, granola cereal, etc. We like it on our scrambled eggs in the morning. To optimize efficacy, it is believed that the best way to take InflammaCure is as a Golden Milk. This is a traditional Ayurvedic drink called Haldo doodh (Hindi). We suggest taking 20 minutes before bed to optimize uptake and help with sleep, although taking InflammaCure any time during the day is acceptable. Here’s the recipe:
Golden Milk Recipe: To ~8oz. of dairy (or non-dairy milk) add 1-1/2 tsp of the InflammaCure powder and up to 1 Tbsp of coconut oil. Add raw organic honey** to sweeten. Warm this for at least 10 minutes on the stove. We do not recommend using a microwave. Do not allow it to simmer. That’s too hot! Just warm it. Stir occasionally. Then strain (only if preferred) into your favorite mug, add ¼ tsp of organic vanilla extract if desired. Enjoy! Feel free to modify this recipe to your preferences. We think it’s really important to find a way to take InflammaCure daily in a way that you love. Some people report it takes some getting use to the flavor but find it rather addicting over time. We’re often asked about the reason for adding the coconut oil. Coconut oil is a lipid and healthy fat. It acts to break down the tough fat-soluble components, particularly the turmeric and ginger root. The use of other fatty oils in place of the coconut oil is acceptable, but we suggest butter or olive oil to avoid the destructive and inflammatory linoleic acid (Omega 6) that’s more abundant in other oils.
**For those who use a sweetener in their Golden Milk, we suggest using our organic medicinal grade herb infused honeys. Most popular is our clove infused honey, but many customers prefer our turmeric, sweet cinnamon, or ginger wonderfully complement the golden milk herbs. Honey is best added during the warming. We suggest minimizing the use of all sweeteners (including imitation sweeteners) which act as inflammatory agents in our bodies. (More on that below).
Other Thoughts on Making: Some folks prefer making the Golden Milk in plain water, and that’s fine. Most of our customers make the golden-milk in almond milk. For customers that wish to mask the flavor, you might try chocolate-flavored almond milk, which when made tastes much like a Christmas-time hot cocoa. Many of our customers take it in their coffee at breakfast, add it to their smoothies, or sprinkle it onto their granola cereal, pancakes, or oatmeal. Some customers batch make the golden-milk and store it in the refrigerator in a glass jar. They’ll then drink it cold, hot, or use it as their coffee creamer. If you find the taste too strong, try adding more milk. The powder will not completely dissolve. If you can drink it without straining, this is definitely preferred! We like to suggest getting all of it into your body.
NOTE: turmeric, like paprika and saffron, will stain white clothing, countertops, dishcloths, etc. Be careful!
Many customers who regularly use InflammaCure report huge benefits and love the convenience compared to making their own blend. Many physicians, herbalists and Naturopaths have told us that they believe we have a superior herb mix compared to any other products they’ve seen. By employing a blend of medicinal grade organic herbs, we avoid the potential of building a tolerance through high dosing with a single constituent as is employed in other anti-inflammatory products.
Turmeric Benefits: Turmeric has been shown to reduce inflammation, lower blood sugar levels, help the liver to detoxify, boosts the immune system and eases the digestive system, all of which help to get to sleep faster and to wake up feeling refreshed. Turmeric is considered a panacea and is believed to provide supportive benefit to every body systems/process.
Ceylon Sweet Cinnamon: Cinnamon is a popular spice. It’s high in cinnamaldehyde, which is thought to be responsible for most of cinnamon’s medicinal health benefits. Cinnamon is loaded with anti-oxidants including powerful polyphenols. The antioxidants in cinnamon have anti-inflammatory effects, which may help lower your risk of disease. Cinnamon may have protective effects against cancer and may improve some key risk factors for heart disease, including cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure. Cinnamon has been shown to significantly increase sensitivity to the hormone insulin, which may improve blood sugar control. Cinnamon has been shown to reduce fasting blood sugar levels and has been shown to lead to various improvements for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease in animal studies. Cinnamon has anti fungal and antibacterial properties and may be anti-viral helping to protecti against influenza, Dengue, and HIV-1. Sweet Cinnamon is considered a panacea and is believed to provide supportive benefit to every body systems/process. Note: Common cooking cinnamon (aka Cassia) contains significant amounts of a compound called coumarin, which is believed to be harmful and should be avoided, hence the reason to only use Ceylon Sweet Cinnamon for medicinal purposes.
Ginger: Ginger contains substances known as gingerols that quash inflammation and turn off pain-causing compounds in the body. Ginger is loaded with antioxidants that are believed to help protect the body from cancer. It helps with digestion and staves off bloating, gas, and nausea. Ginger can help lower LDL cholesterol levels, reducing your risk of heart disease. Ginger’s blood-thinning properties may help prevent the formation of blood clots, reducing your risk of heart failure and stroke. Ginger has antimicrobial and anti fungal properties to help fight infections and boost your immunity. Ginger is considered a panacea and is believed to provide supportive benefit to every body systems/process.

Other Ways that May Help to Reduce Inflammation and improve gut health.aka: “The foundational pillars to good health”: We often inform our customers that InflammaCure is not a “magic pill”, there’s no such thing. The organic ingredients we use in InflammaCure have been shown to help, over time, every single body system, and our ingredient blend is designed to specifically target inflammation and the associated body processes. There are however many other things we can do to further reduce inflammation in our bodies. Here are some ideas that we share for informational purposes only. By coupling the daily use of InflammaCure with some or all of the ideas we suggest below, we’re confident you will feel less pain and inflammation within a few days, weeks or perhaps months for certain situations. Healing the body naturally takes time and each person will experience a unique set of measures that works best for them. There’s no magic pill or single prescriptive procedure that simply works for everyone. So here are the basic pillars to good health, less inflammation, and a healthy gut!
- Intermittent Fasting: Here we’re talking about eating within an eight hour (or less) window each day. Many people report significant health benefits by eating only between the hours of let’s say 10 am to 6 pm. The exact hours are not important. What is important is to strive toward only eating within an 8-10 hour window each day and to leave your digestive system at rest for more hours. So, why is this relevant to inflammation? Well, 90% of our body’s immune system is located in our gut. When we eat, our food is broken down through chewing and by digestive fluids to become very small nutrient particles. These minute particles are able to diffuse through the very thin semi-permeable walls of our intestines where blood cells pick them up and carry them off to feed the cells of our body. Intermixed with the nutrient particles are pathogens and undesirable materials that may be harmful to our body. These materials need to be kept out of our bloodstream to the greatest extent possible. We have a simple name for this material, it’s called ‘poop’. Each time we eat, our immune system goes on high alert. It acts to neutralize or destroy these invaders that are working thier way through the intestinal wall. One of the mechanisms used by the immune system that protects the cells of our body is the normal process of inflammation. Inflammation is a good and necessary process that helps the body fight infection and repair tissue damage. Chronic inflammation is not good or normal, especially when it’s directed toward our bodies healthy tissues! If we consider the idea of consuming food stuffs over most hours each day (like 15-20 hrs for example), our digestive tract is always “on” and so is our immune system….and so is the normal inflammatory processes implemented by the immune system. The problem in this case is, the inflammatory process in our body never shuts off because the immune system never gets a rest. Thus normal inflammation essentially becomes chronic inflammation. Intermittent fasting provides a big window of hours where our immune system can come off of high-alert and rest. Thus causing a reduced inflammatory response in our body. Some research has shown that intermittent fasting may be more beneficial than other diets for reducing inflammation and may therefore have beneficial effect on inflammatory related diseases such as: alzheimer’s, arthritis, asthma, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, IBS, parkinsons, and stroke. Intermittent fasting has also been shown to help lower your risk of diabetes, sleep apnea, and some types of cancer. It may take several weeks to a month for your body to adjust to intermittent fasting eating patterns and in that time you may experience hunger, fatigue, insomnia, headaches, anxiety, or nausea. There are many ways to actually intermittent fast. We’ve presented just one way here that’s referred to as “daily time-restricted fasting”, or 8:16 fasting. Intermittent fasting is considered safe for most people, but should be avoided if you’re under age 18, pregnant, breast-feeding, have kidney stones, GERD, type I diabetes, have a history of eating disorders, or have other medical problems. It’s always advisable to confer with your healthcare practitioner before making changes to your diet or eating patterns. There are many articles online that discusses intermittent fasting and we invite you to investigate this idea further.
- Green Leafy Vegetables: Eating an abundance of green leafy vegetables every day has been shown to decrease inflammation and prevent a myriad of diseases. Broccoli, spinach, Swiss chard, kale, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, arugula, etc. These green vegetables are loaded with Vitamin E and powerful antioxidants that have been shown to reduce inflammation in the body. Plants have no mobile immune system. To protect their cells from microbial attack, plants produce phyto-chemicals. When we eat plants we temporarily adopt their phytochemical protection system in our digestive tract . This slightly reduces our bodies immune response while digesting and thus reduces the associated inflammatory response. It’s important to consume a broad variety of vegetables, especially green leafy versions. Eating the same old romaine lettuce day after day will not be as beneficial as say eating 50 different varieties of greens throughout the year. Eating just one type of vegetable in over abundance day after day may also induce toxic or allergic reactions. So variety is important. Another point to make here is about dressings. Most dressings you purchase in the store are loaded with excessive sugars, salts, and chemicals and are not at all healthy. A bare minimum of olive oil with some lemon juice on your leaves, or similar dressing solutions will prove much healthier. Take a look at our Salad Dressing Mixes if you want a healthier alternative. A light steaming of vegetables with a little bit of butter and seasoning sounds healthy too. As far as quantity, bring out the big bowels and fill ’em up. We Americans are in the habit of eating little tiny vegetable portions. I’d suggest eating “boat loads” of a broad variety of greens at nearly every meal. Adjust your diet over time to make leafy greens the main portion at most of your meals. Add salt free and raw nuts, fruits, berries, seeds and other healthy vegetable additions to your mega salads to make them awesome. This is one of the easiest ways to reduce inflammation in the body. Some people find taking organic Spirulina/Chlorella (broken cell wall) tablets very convenient. Chlorella and spirulina are forms of algae that are highly nutritious and safe to eat for most people. They don’t taste the greatest, but in tablet form they’re easily swallowed rapidly. Its aways better to eat fresh organic whole vegetable foods that are also rich in fiber, but spirulina/chlorella might be worth also considering in your diet. Of course, you should always check with your healthcare practitioner before making significant changes to your diet.
- Adopt a Chemical Free Diet and Eliminate Processed Foods: (which really means focusing on organic chemical free foods and reducing Omega 6 Linoleic acid in our diet) and how this reduces inflammation. I’ll write on this soon! BTW: This is a good reason to buy foods like ours.
- Reduction (or elimination) of sugars: I’ll write more on this soon too and include why it’s important to also not use imitation sugars (including stevia) and how this acts to reduce inflammation.
- Meaningful daily Exercise and physical activity and how that aids to reduce inflammation
- Other Supplements: Squid derived Omega-3 , zinc (8 mg/day for women, 11 mg/day for men), green tea (3-4 cups daily), Cat’s Claw 20-60 mg in capsule powder form daily, non-bone broth (vegan version), and let’s not forget Mountain Momma Organics’s InflammaCure described above. I’ll elaborate on this section later.
- Proper sleep: I’ll also discuss this here later!
- Remove the Chemicals from your world: Get the chemicals out of your environment, especially in your house. That includes all the commercial cleaners, cosmetics, fresheners, toothpaste, disinfectants, bug sprays, cooking aides, etc. We suggest starting by throwing away all the commercial chemical substance under your kitchen sink, bathroom sink, laundry room, pantry and bedroom. Start learning about healthy natural soaps, cleaners, laundry detergents, cosmetics, deodorants, etc. Perhaps consider making your own. Recipes are easy to find online, and frankly you’ll find they’re often much less expensive to make yourself, work better, and won’t damage your body and create serious health issues. Then go after the cleaners you use in your car and all those vinyl leather enhancers, window cleaners, etc. You can try to do the same chemical elimination in your work space at work (although this could be a difficult goal for many people). Later I’ll write about the impact on the bodies immuno-inflammatory-allergic response to these synthetic chemical substances and the serious health risk they may pose. Especially when we’re exposed to hundreds of chemical substances daily. I can’t tell you how many people we know with chronic inflammatory pain, allergies, and related health issues that suddenly disappear with the removal of chemicals from the home, car, office, etc. I’ll also talk about mildew, molds, and fungi around your home environment and the impact on your immune system and associated inflammatory response.
- Attention to our mental/emotional and spiritual health: I’ll write more on this later.
This list of inflammation reducing measures is not exhaustive . It is intended to provide an introduction into the myriad of healthy natural techniques we can employ to help reduce inflammation and perhaps help to prevent and/or slow the progress of related chronic disease in our bodies. Frankly, there’s nothing in the list above that isn’t part of a natural healthy lifestyle regimen. These are all foundational pillars to good health. We always tell people, “You have to enjoy your life”. There’s no need to keep to a strict 100% pure regimen in all things everyday. The point is to start implementing some of these ideas discussed above into your daily life and using them each day more and more. In this way you will build health resiliency, you will have a better balanced gut/immune system, you will likely achieve a significant reduction of chronic painful inflammation, and you’ll likely enjoy the pain free future days of your life a whole lot more.
