10 ways Turmeric may be able to heal you

10 ways Turmeric may be able to heal you

Turmeric grows wild in the forests of South and Southeast Asia. It's one of the key ingredients in many Pakistani, Indian, Persian and Thai dishes and has medicinal value, too.

Here are some of the benefits of using Turmeric as a spice

  1. Turmeric is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent, useful in disinfecting cuts and burns.
  2. Turmeric is a natural liver detoxifier.
  3. Turmeric may prevent and slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease by removing amyloid plaque build-up in the brain.
  4. Turmeric is a potent natural anti-inflammatory that works as well as many anti-inflammatory drugs but without the side effects.
  5. Turmeric is a natural painkiller and cox-2 inhibitor.
  6. Turmeric may aid in fat metabolism and help in weight management.
  7. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, Turmeric is a natural treatment for arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
  8. It may speed up wound healing and assist in remodelling damaged skin.
  9. Turmeric may help in the treatment of psoriasis and other inflammatory skin conditions.
  10. Epidemiologists have hypothesized that Turmeric that is part of daily curries eaten in India may help explain the low rate of Alzheimer’s disease in that country. Among people aged 70 to 79, the rate is less than one-quarter that of the United States. (Source: Dr Andrew Weil)

 

Here's how to use Turmeric

1. Spice up your food.

Add this spice to anything, besides sweets, for a new flavour and multiple health benefits. You can use Turmeric to add some zest to cooked vegetables, eggs, and meat dishes. You can also add it to boiling water you're using to make pasta, rice, soups, and more.

2. Drink it as a tea.

Bring four cups of water to a boil. Add one teaspoon of ground Turmeric and reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes. Strain the tea through a fine sieve into a cup, add honey and/or lemon to taste.

3. Take it as a supplement.

If you don’t like the idea of adding it to your food or drinking it as a tea, you can take Turmeric as a supplement.  Try Wagner Bio-Curcumin, available from your local pharmacy or your nearest Chemist Warehouse.

4. Mix it with castor oil for a skin detox.

Castor oil with Turmeric powder is a powerful toxin releaser for your skin.
