tweeking the ayurvedic formula?

Hello-
Would it be acceptable to substitute almond or hemp (or any other non-dairy milk) and still maintain the ayurvedic balance of this recipe?
Thanks!

Hi Hollyah, sorry for the

Hi Hollyah, sorry for the delay. I'm told the balance would likely not be changed. These ingredients were most likely chosen for their anti-inflammatory properties rather than specifically to satisfy Auyervedic dosha balances. The anti-inflammatory benefits would stay the same, or possibly improved by the omega 3s of the hemp or nut milk. thanks!

Health benefits of turmeric

If right quantity of turmeric dosage is taken as prescribed, it would certainly start showing its healing effect within a short span of time.

Medicinal

I do a non-dairy version of it, with almond milk. The best remedy in the very beginning of a cold or sore throat. Also a comfort drink on a chilly day.
