You may wonder why then, the Golden Milk recipe is suggested as a good method to take turmeric in a drink. This is because the turmeric is gently simmered in the milk/water mixture first. This greatly improves the bio-availability – even when taken alone without a meal it will be beneficial. Black pepper and coconut oil (or other healthy fat) is added as well. I would suggest you prepare your tea by simmering it first, let it cool then drink it as you like it. As to how many almonds as a fat source…I haven’t an idea at all. It is thought that roughly half or less the amount of turmeric to oil is sufficient (ie 1/4 tsp. turmeric 1/8 or less of fat/oil).
Often, when the doctor orders a medication and requests that the patient receives the initial, or whole dose of the prescribed drug before leaving the office it is the responsibilty of the medical assistant to draw up, or count out the right amount and administer it to the patient, followed by charting the process into the patient's chart. Also, there are patients that come to the medical office for the sole purpose of receiving a dose of a prescribed medication, such as allergy shots, Vitamin B 12 injections, flu shots, without seeing the doctor that day. This will require a standing prescription order in the chart form the doctor, and again, is usually carried out by the medical assistant.
