TURMERIC

TURMERIC

Turmeric has been used for thousands of years by many cultures as a medicinal herb and a traditional food in cooking, particularly in India and the Middle East. Ayurvedic medicine, particularly, has used turmeric to treat a wide range of illnesses from heartburn and gut issues to bronchitis, lung infections, headaches, diabetes, colds and cancer. It is such a fragrant spice! And it is the most beautiful bright yellow colour. It is warming, bitter, and peppery with a mild scent reminiscent of ginger. The pure forms of turmeric powder have very high concentrations of Curcumin. Which is what we want if we are using it in a medicinal sense.

ADRENAL FATIGUE

 

Adrenal fatigue seems to be a prevalent and common issue facing many people. It’s a hidden condition though, because it seems to me that western medicine seems to attribute the root causes of adrenal fatigue to other conditions which present with a similar raft of symptoms. The main cause of adrenal fatigue is STRESS.

STRONG BONES

Bones are complex. Not only do they hold us up – imagine if you had no bones – they protect our inner organs, drape muscles over them to allow us a good range of movement and are connected to each other in a flowing symmetry. Importantly they are also the storage facility which holds the minerals we need to function well.
