A Cure to Arthritis?

By: Millard Hiner

Turmeric may be a cure for arthritis and so much more. Turmeric is one of the great gifts that is a true multitasking miracle for the aging body. I venture to say that most Americans would not be able to tell you what turmeric is other than that they think it is found in the spice isle. Not something that most of us would think of as a must have in the kitchen, but if you care to look at the ingredients on the side of any bottle of mustard you might have in your kitchen you will see that is not the humble mustard seed that alone gives mustard its distinctive taste; it is in fact turmeric as well.

Turmeric is a popular ingredient in Indian and Asian cuisine. It has also been used as a natural dye though out history. http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=78 the most note worthy attribute of this spice is that it is a very powerful anti-inflammatory. Turmeric behaves in your body like many of the non steroidal anti-inflammatory we are familiar with like aspirin, Tylenol and Celebrex.

Turmeric has been enjoyed since ancient times, which is rather reassuring in this modern day and age of recalls and drug company law suits. It has stood the test of time and now its amazing healing powers are coming to light. All of us have seen the articles on why people in Japan live longer, why people in France are skinnier, etc. Many of us have even tried the Mediterranean diet.

With all the interest about why people in different parts of the world live longer than others and why some nations have more of certain diseases than others, studies have been under way to determine what makes some nations not have high rates of diseases like arthritis, cancer, and even Alzheimer’s. It was found that the people in India have a much lower rate of anti-inflammatory diseases and the key seems to be the use of turmeric.

Anyone who has seen Dr. Daniel Amen on PBS or read his many books knows how excited this leader in the cutting edge brain imagining is about turmeric. http://www.amenclinics.com/. The best part about this “medicine” is that it is so easy to add to your daily routine. Adding this to your diet is as easy as saying extra mustard when you order a sandwich and choosing the mustard based potatoes salad when you make your 4th of July side dishes. Why not eat something that is good for your brain as well as your body? http://news.newamericamedia.org/news/view_article.html?article_id=84535565db844abb14cc8f9810d27977

Of course it is known to be great for arthritis, but we are finding it is also showing promise against everything from heart disease to cancer. The real selling point of this amazing spice is its versatility and overall healing properties. This is something that is good for your whole body. It helps your heart, your mind, your joints and even your digestive track. http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/65950/turmeric_for_arthritis_pain_relief.html http://medheadlines.com/2008/02/26/turmeric-may-prevent-heart-failure/
