Sometimes called Indian saffron, turmeric is an ancient ayurvedic medicine that has been used for centuries throughout Indonesia and Southeast Asia. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant with a long history of use both medicinally and in cuisine. A perennial plant native to South Asia, turmeric is a member of the ginger family. Some regions use the leaves or eat the root raw, but usually the root is harvested, boiled, then dried in hot ovens and ground into powder. The yellow-orange colored powder is used as a spice, a food additive for coloring, and as a dye. It is the main ingredient in curry powder, an earthy, peppery spice used prevalently in many types of cuisine, from Thai to Indian.
The Health-Care Survivor
This morning, I was invited to joinradio show, with Joyce Riley. Our discussion was wide-ranging, including:
- Allopathic physician’s fear of natural health
- My Serrapeptase Adventure
- Naturally sustainable good health
- The development of ‘ObamaCare’
- The UK’s National Health Service
Thanks to Joyce Riley and Read More “The Power Hour: My Serrapeptase Adventure And The NHS”.
Curcumin adds a distinctive yellow colour to Indian curry and yellow mustard, but it is much more than a food ingredient. For centuries, people in India have used Curcumin to treat the symptoms of diabetes, bronchitis, and laryngitis. Medical practitioners are even starting to understand how beneficial Curcumin can be when used to relieve swelling and ease the symptoms of chronic diseases. Several research studies have confirmed the benefits of Curcumin for reducing inflammation, especially the inflammation associated with inflammatory bowel disease.
One of Curcumin’s most well-known uses is treating inflammation and swelling.
For people suffering from chronic inflammation, over-the-counter and prescription drugs offer some relief, but they also increase the risk for gastrointestinal bleeding, stroke, heart attack, and other serious adverse events. Medical practitioners in Asia and Europe have turned to safer treatments for chronic inflammation, one of which is Serrapeptase. Serrapeptase is an enzyme that breaks down proteins, leading to reduced inflammation. Scientific research has validated the use of Serrapeptase as an anti-inflammatory for the treatment of inflammation, post-surgical pain, and several chronic medical conditions.
People who either have cerebral palsy, or have studied it, realise it is a lifelong condition. This does not mean that some of the symptoms cannot be managed, perhaps even without prescription drugs that feature potentially dangerous side effects. In fact, recent studies have shown cerebral palsy has an inflammatory component, which may indicate that prescription drugs are not the only, or even the best options to treat symptoms. In addition, the findings of various studies offer hope that cerebral palsy, and other conditions, can be managed or prevented by reducing or eliminating inflammation.
