Kitchen Spice Medicine: Turmeric Curried Onions

“Come follow along and we’ll mix up an awesome curry blend and then turn it into some even awesomer (is that a word?) medicine that has knocked out more colds than I can count.”

If you’re into making medicine with turmeric, well then creating your own curry blend is probably on the list.

This is a blend that I just made up one day and it stuck! Not all experiments are like that, but when you find a good one, the trick is remembering what you did. (Haha!)


In this video tutorial, we’re going to make a curry blend together and then I’ll share a recipe to use the curry blend in that I learned from Rosemary Gladstar let’s see… 30 years ago? Let me try and remember exactly how long… Yep just about 30 years ago!

Now I’ve played around with a lot of recipes and remedies since then, some come and gone. But not this one. This recipe has come to life in my kitchen every year for the past 30 years.

Wow, has it really been that long?


Come follow along and we’ll mix up an awesome curry blend and then turn it into some even awesomer (is that a word?) medicine that has knocked out more colds than I can count.

You’ll glean some of the healing benefits of the spices we use and learn the different ways you can eat the curried onions to chase down a cold any time of the year. Find out if this is the right remedy for you or not and see if you too want to have this be a staple medicine in your kitchen.

Hello I’m Kami, Welcome to Living Awareness!

I believe every family needs to have someone on board with a working knowledge of natural remedies if you want to take care of your family’s health for real.

When I was growing up, natural remedies was not a mainstream concept like it is now, in fact, you are going to be surprised that I never even heard the word natural remedy until I moved out of the house!

In my early 20’s I met someone by chance that told me about holistic health and herbal medicine. I wondered why nobody had talked to me about it before and had a voracious appetite to learn everything I could.

Now, 30 years later I've helped thousands of people demystify the world of herbal medicine and become empowered in using herbal self-care in their home to prevent illness, take care of common ailments and protect their health naturally.

For 20 years I've had a clinical herbal practice connecting people with plants and their wellness. I've developed and taught herbal curriculum for UCSF School of Nursing and the Integral Health Master’s Degree Program at the California Institute of Integral Studies.

Stick with me! You’ll learn awesome herbal self-care, get inspired to be more self-sufficient in your health care and nourish a deep love for the herbs and how to use them, knowing you are doing the very best you can to care for your wellness.
