Today, turmeric is one of the most popular spices and with good reason. Turmeric has many miraculous ingredients that have medicinal properties. This isn’t the first time that people are hearing this, in fact, turmeric has been used for centuries. With over 7000 studies having been conducted on the health benefits of turmeric, you’re sure to appreciate learning more about this miraculous spice.

According to Biblical theologians, turmeric is amongst the precious spices that were given to the baby Jesus when the 3 Wisemen came to visit. They also brought along myrrh, gold, and frankincense. Many theologians believe that the gold was actually turmeric and that they referred to it as gold due to the lovely golden shade that this spice boosts.

In spite of its being referred to in the Bible, it’s also used widely in Ayurveda and in Chinese medicines. In fact, it’s used in many homeopathic medicines and it’s been in use for well over 2 millennia.

As a potent blood cleanser, it’s long been touted as a spice that has medicinal properties. Many doctors have utilized it to assist kings when they were poisoned. However, in Western medicine, it still required more information before they would incorporate the spice into their medicines.

In the United States, it’s long been used and according to the over 7000 studies, it has many incredible medicinal uses.

Within the past 30 years alone, Americans have begun to capture the benefits of this amazing medicinal spice.

Today, more than ever before, we’re living in a world that is full of toxins and many of these are harmful to our health. They not only endanger our well-being, they endanger our world. With over 42,000 toxic components in the environment today, you never know which one you’re going to encounter. Toxins are present in the air that we breathe, in the water that we drink and wash with and in our foods. They are present in just about every product that we use including our cleaning products and our cosmetics.

Many of these toxins have a negative effect on our health. They disrupt our endocrine systems and they release hormones into our blood streams. Worse, they are creating damage to our heart, liver, and kidneys, all while we’re using them.

Exposure to such chemicals and substances is very harmful to our health. Sadly, we can’t eliminate all of them from our life. Thus, we have to do what we can to avoid them and remove them from our products. By choosing to use natural products and save our health we are taking the important first step to ridding our world of these nasty toxins.

In spite of the many innovations and discoveries in the world that we live in, many are still using all of these products and more without any thought to how they will impact our environment and our lives. Thanks to this poor decision, many of us are suffering from health issues. Turmeric is a spice that can change all of this and more.

In David Frawley and Prashanti De Heger’s book, “The Ayurvedic Spice Of Life”, there are many benefits of turmeric listed and they confirm that turmeric has many great benefits:

  • Bactericide
  • antiviral
  • fungicide
  • cancer preventative
  • antiulcer
  • antiallergenic
  • herbicide
  • insectifuge
  • antiseptic
  • antibacterial
  • antispasmodic
  • anti-tumor
  • anti-inflammatory
  • etc.

Have you ever stopped and wondered, why doctors aren’t prescribing turmeric as a medicine? If so, you’re not the only one that has wondered this.

Using turmeric on a regular basis can offer you a variety of medicinal benefits.

Supports Gut Health

The gut processes the foods that we eat. Therefore, it’s very important and will help to boost the proper hormones and the right conditions to properly process the foods that are eaten. In addition, turmeric can also alleviate many mood swings and other conditions.

Calms Inflammation

Anyone who works a lot is likely prone to inflammation somewhere in their body. Turmeric helps to relieve and reduce inflammation and prevent illness. With a potent anti-inflammatory property, it may help to prevent chronic illnesses.

A quote from Dr. Mercola:

“Turmeric has been used as a powerful anti-inflammatory in Chinese and Indian medicine for millennia. Curcumin, the primary pharmacological agent in this spice, contains proven effects in this area that are comparable to over-the-counter anti-inflammatory agents as well as some prescription medications.

But curcumin doesn’t produce the toxic effect that synthetic drugs sometimes do, such as ulcer formation, internal bleeding, and even a lowered white blood cell count.”


Promotes Mental Health

Turmeric has long been touted as a way to help improve mental health. It contains many neuro properties and can help to improve clarity and mental focus. According to experts, it may also treat other conditions such as depression and epilepsy. Even Alzheimer’s and tardive dyskinesia and other neurodegenerative disorders can be relieved to a degree by simply adding turmeric to the diet.
