Turmeric is the most thoroughly researched plant today and it’s medicinal properties (primarily curcumin) have been the subject of thousands of studies and a growing number of them have concluded that it compares favorably to many conventional medicines that treat cholesterol, inflammation, depression, arthritis, arteriosclerosis, cancer, diabetes and blood coagulation.

According to my GreenMedInfo blog “Considering how strong a track record turmeric (curcumin) has, having been used as both food and medicine in a wide range of cultures, for thousands of years, a strong argument can be made for using curcumin as a drug alternative or adjuvant in cancer treatment.

Or, better yet, use certified organic (non-irradiated) turmeric in lower culinary doses on a daily basis so that heroic doses won’t be necessary later in life after a serious disease sets in. Nourishing yourself, rather than self-medicating with ‘nutraceuticals,’ should be the goal of a healthy diet”.

If ever there were a herb that puts fear into pharmaceutical companies it’s turmeric
