Have you seen our Wall Menu with the “Alchemical Healthy Shots” listed?
It’s loaded with blends of plant roots, the kind your great-great grandmother concocted to help the body heal. You may think it’s old fashioned, but honestly it’s too bad that later generations didn’t follow great-great grandmother’s footsteps and incorporate the art of infusing herbs and roots as viable family home remedies.
At Courtyard Cafe we have gathered a wide variety of elixir combination to help you heal any recent malady. More importantly our elixirs may even prevent and protect you from incoming illnesses. This becomes very important by the time the cold and flu season begins to show itself, since no one takes the flu shot anymore, right!
Many of the ingredients in our “Healthy Shots” comes from all over the World, especially in the Far Eastern countries including the Himalayas. You will find these ingredients to have very unusual names that are hard to pronounce, which is a clear indicator that they have not been harvested in America.
A simple glance at our Wall Menu will transport you to exotic locations around the World where you may never have traveled, especially if you sit for a few minutes and look up some of the ingredients on your cell phone.
That being said, one thing you can count on with a mixture of these exotic herbs is: NONE of these extracts taste particularly good. They are, after all, very rooty-tasting. But, we can help you with that! Just pick one of our cold-pressed juices and we can add the Shot of your choice to it. Very much like creating your own concoction.
So, let’s get you started.
If you have never tried an herbal remedy before, you may want to start with Turmeric.
Although you may not know it, you most likely had some in any Asian or Curry dish you might have tried. You may also know it as Curcumin.
Here’s a list of health benefits that may encourage you to try it. Turmeric helps with:
- Arthritis, Joint Pain
- Digestion, Stomach Pain, Crohn’s disease, Intestinal Gas, Bloating, Diarrhea
- Inflammation, Itchy Skin
- Colds, Headaches, Bronchitis, Allergies
- Kidneys, Urinary Concerns, Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Sprains, Bruising, Swelling, Cuts, Burns…
Records show that Turmeric has been around for over 4,000 years as a spice and we have been using it since we opened Courtyard Cafe both as a spice and for it’s obvious healing properties.
We encourage our Cafe guests to make a special effort to experience a “Wellness Shot” especially throughout the Winter months or when they feel a cold or flu coming on.
Come on in for our 2/$6 “Alchemical Healthy Shot” Fall Special every Saturday!
See you soon!
