Bob Fickes ~ The Healing Power of Turmeric

Turmeric is a powerful healer that is found in curry. It gives the yellow color to curry and has a very nice taste. But when taken as a supplement along with small amounts of black pepper, it becomes a useful healer for many conditions in the body and in the brain. Even just a teaspoon of turmeric can help cleanse the blood, dramatically decrease inflammation, increase anti-oxidants, and decrease cholesterol. If you have a fever, turmeric and black pepper can help reduce the fever in a few hours. For a severe fever, take a teaspoon of turmeric and a small amount of black pepper every three to four hours and you will experience a noticeable reduction in the fever.

Turmeric is also very useful for brain conditions including depression and Alzheimer’s disease. Turmeric helps the neurons in the brain to multiply and rejuvenates many brain functions particularly related to learning abilities.
Such a simple common household spice turns out to be a major contributor to better health. It has been recommended in Ayurveda for over 3000 years. When your health is failing or you feel low stamina and brain fatigue or depression, try turmeric and black pepper and see what happens. If you don’t like the taste, mix it with fruit juice such as orange juice for a more satisfying taste.
