Here's a nice comment I just received about this entry from Steve in UK, the systems operator for this blog:
Kurma's Blog: Turmeric is not just a pretty face. In Chinese medicine, turmeric is known to stimulate circulation, resolve bruises and clots, strengthen the gall bladder, inhibit dangerous blood clotting, reduce liver toxins, act an anti-inflammatory, and help metabolise fats.
It is also revered in India’s Ayurveda as the most natural antibiotic, even surpassing echinacea, and as the most potent of all blood purifiers. It is also recommended as the best herb to regulate womens’ menstrual periods and as a powerful tonic for womens’ reproductive organs.
There has been a lot in the news lately about the amazing healing properties of turmeric, a free-radical-fighting antioxidant-rich spice that has been hailed as a defense against both cancer and Alzheimer's.
