Most Doctors in India consider turmeric to be the best all-around herb  of the Ayurvedic and Yogic tradition. Suitable for all constitutions,  its warming pungency balances Vata and Kapha and its bitter and sweet  tastes balance Pitta. Western science confirms this with hundreds of scientific articles that reinforce thousands of years of empirical evidence  accrued in India, where turmeric is used as a medicine, beauty aid,  cooking spice, talisman amulet and a dye. Turmeric purifies and  nourishes the blood and skin and so is useful for a wide array of  indications ranging from acne to wounds to skin cancer. Turmeric  cleanses, builds and moves blood like few other herbs, making it an  especially valuable herb to support the skin, liver and female  reproductive system. Turmeric protects the liver from toxins and pathogens  as well as helping to restore it; this makes turmeric an especially useful herb for travel, detoxification and for treating drug and alcohol habits.  Turmeric also removes cholesterol from the liver and inhibits  its assimilation, giving the cardiovascular system double protection  from excesses of cholesterol. Support of the respiratory system is a  primary traditional use of turmeric; as an anti-oxidant it protects  
the lungs from pollution and toxins, and helps oxygen  transfer from the lungs to the blood. When it comes to first-aid, it  serves in accidents ranging from cuts to concussions.  For any trauma  this rhizome accelerates healing and minimizes the damage. Turmeric is  hemostatic, vulnerary, a great healer of tissue, and it is analgesic,  anti-inflammatory and anti-biotic.  Turmeric has a triple action  against cancer: it neutralizes those substances and conditions which  can cause cancer; it directly helps a cell retain its integrity if  
threatened by carcinogens; and if a tumor does grow, it can often  eradicate it.

The litany of turmeric’s uses is so long that without doubt it ranks as  one of the most useful herbs to use daily. Join us to learn how to  optimize turmeric’s power for the well-being of yourself, your family,  friends and clients.
