Description

Turmeric has been a vital part of life in India for thousands of years. This simple herb is a gold mine that can prevent and cure both everyday and rare diseases, from a cut to Cancer. Aptly called the ‘Indian solid gold,’ its magical properties have made it indispensable to Ayurveda, everyday cooking, cosmetology, ceremonies and more.

This book talks about the tremendous benefits of Turmeric and how it is beneficial in preventing and curing a large number of diseases. It will tell you how Turmeric can help you keep your heart healthy or get rid of a common cold or acne in surprisingly simple ways.

Prashanti de Jager studies and practices Ayurveda, Advaita and Yoga. A pioneer of Organics and Biodynamics in India, he also teaches numerous courses in Ayurveda and Yoga across the world.

With a Foreword by Dr. David Frawley, world’s leading expert and practitioner of Ayurveda.

Turmeric is best known as an excellent spice for East Indian cooking. It is the basis of most Indian curries, which traditionally are composed of at least half of it, giving them their characteristic yellow color. The herb itself has a mild spicy yet slightly bitter taste that deepens the natural taste of food and is not too hot for those sensitive to chillis or other strongly aromatic spices. Turmeric helps balance the effects of other spices, blending their tastes and properties in a synergistic manner, giving them a better flavor.

Turmeric gently stimulates the digestive fire and makes the food easier to digest and absorb. It also helps detoxify the food, killing bacteria and even parasites that may be found within it. In addition it improves the quality of food, adding nutritive and blood building properties to the oils with which it combines, particularly ghee (clarified butter), with which it has an important affinity. It is essential to Ayurvedic diets and a helpful aid to any gourmet cooking.

Turmeric is a great woman’s herb, helpful for many gynecological problems. It mildly promotes menstruation, relieves menstrual pain and cramping, is great for countering PMS, and helps build the blood. It helps guard against or even remove cysts in the breast or uterus, and is a good guard against breast cancer. It helps strengthen the female reproductive organs and aid in their proper formation in young women, while helping, soothing and harmonizing the body during menopause. In addition, it helps beautify the skin and improve the complexion, promoting circulation and nutrition to the surface of the body.

Turmeric is an important herb for the heart and the liver. It strengthens the heart, lowering cholesterol and preventing heart disease, strokes and heart attacks. It is a mind blood thinner that has no side effects and does not cause anemia.
