How To Make Golden Paste

Australian veterinarian Dr Doug English has seen great results with a turmeric recipe he developed called Golden Paste. Here is his recipe:

½ cup organic turmeric powder (Make sure it’s organic turmeric powder to be sure it contains lots of curcumin)

1  to 1 ½ cups filtered water

1 ½ teaspoons freshly ground black pepper (Grind organic black peppercorns in a coffee grinder or magic bullet)

¼ cup organic cold pressed virgin olive or coconut oil (Coconut oil is a great choice because it also has great health benefits)

Mix the turmeric with the water in a pan, starting with 1 cup water and adding more only if needed. Stir the liquid on medium/low heat and in about 7 to 10 minutes, it should form a thick paste. If your paste looks watery, just add a bit more turmeric and heat it for another couple of minutes.

Once you’ve got a paste, add the pepper and oil, then stir it very well.

Allow the mixture to cool, then place it in a jar with a lid and store it in your fridge. Ideally, you should store the paste for no more than two weeks … after that, you’ll want to make a fresh batch.

Giving Turmeric Golden Paste To Your Dog

You can add the Golden Paste directly to your dog’s meals by mixing it with some water or kefir. Most dogs don’t mind the taste at all!

Start with about ¼ to ½ tsp, depending on the size of your dog. You can increase the amount from there, up to about a Tbsp for larger dogs.

TIP: Turmeric leaves the body quickly, so it’s best to feed smaller amounts a few times a day.
