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.
