If I had only a single herb to depend upon for all possible health and dietary needs, I would without much hesitation choose the Indian spice Turmeric. Turmeric is beneficial for long term and daily usage. Turmeric gently stimulates the digestive fire and makes the food easier to digest and absorb. It also helps detoxify the food, killing bacteria and even parasites that may be found within it. In addition, it improves the quality of food, adding nutritive and blood building properties to the oils in which it combines, particularly ghee.
In addition Turmeric is a great women’s herb and is helpful for many gynecological problems. It mildly promotes menstruation, relieves menstrual pain and cramping, is great for countering PMS, and helps build the blood. It helps guard against and even removes cysts in the breast and uterus, and is a good guard against breast cancer. It helps strengthen the reproductive organs and aids in the proper formation in young women, while helping soothing and harmonizing the body during menopause.
In addition it helps beautify the skin and improve the complexion, promoting circulation and nutrition to the surface of the body. Turmeric is an important herb for the heart and liver. It strengthens the heart, helping lower cholesterol and preventing heart disease, strokes and heart attacks. It is a mild blood thinner that has no side effects and does not cause anemia. It cleanses the liver and gently promotes the flow of bile, relieving emotional tension and depression, and clearing out toxins, including pollutants (fluoride) and chemicals of various types from deep within the body.
Tumeric helps counter addiction to alcohol and sugar. It is especially good for diabetes and can prevent or control adult on-set diabetes if taken on a regular basis with meals. Perhaps most importantly today, in the age of immune system disorder, Turmeric is an excellent adaptogen and tonic. It promotes healing on all levels of the body.
