I suffer from a lot of migraine headaches.  I get on average about 12 to 15 a month.  I take a daily preventative, and I also take sumatriptan if I feel the onset of a migraine, however I do not always get enough to cover the amount of migraines I get a month.  I recently learned that ginger can help with alleviating a migraine in the same way that sumatriptan can, and this drink is a mock up of the Pure Cafe's in Texas called the "Painkiller".  Ginger and Turmeric are said to reduce inflammation, which may help with overall well being*.  The ginger also helps with digestion, and nausea associated with a migraine*.  Be sure to sip slowly! 

1 32 Oz. mason jar with lid

1 cup of ice

1 cup of orange juice

1 cup of apple juice

1/2 cup of beet juice

1 to 2 teaspoons of fresh grated ginger 

1 teaspoon of fresh grated turmeric

1 tsp of honey, maple or agave to sweeten if desired 

Pour each ingredient into the mason jar, place the lid on top and shake up.  Pour into a small glass, add some sparkling water to make it fizzy if you like, or leave as is.  This makes 4 x 78 calorie small servings or 2 x 156 calorie large servings.  

*None of these statements have been reviewed or approved by the FDA, however this does make a nice non-alcoholic cocktail if it does not give you the desired results.
