Making Jamu with mom

Jamu is a traditional medicinal drink from Indonesia that includes a variety of healing herbs. In this version, mom and I include: turmeric, tamarind, honey, and bee pollen. This drink is significant to us because mom is currently suffering from Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and has undergone chemo (Sept-Feb 2013-4) and plans on going through a targeted radiation treatment (Sept 2014) as well. Eating a nutritious diet has been important for mom in order to regain her health and immune system functions.
