Here’s what gets activated in your body when you eat just ONE teaspoon of turmeric every day


(NaturalNews) Though it may be unfamiliar to many people, those who know about turmeric are well aware of its health benefits. In fact, they know that just one teaspoon per day of this “Queen of all spices,” which has been prevalent in natural medicine for some 4,000 years, will help keep inflammation, pain, toxins and even some cancers at bay.

Turmeric has long been known for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and detoxification properties, but recent studies have indicated that this spice can also be used to effectively treat Alzheimer’s disease.

Here are seven ways that just a spoonful of turmeric a day can prove to be your secret miracle spice:

1. Battling inflammation naturally: As you may know, chronic inflammation is believed to be at the root of many modern illnesses. Turmeric’s active ingredient, curcumin, has been found by researchers to be a very effective and potent anti-inflammatory, even exceeding the performance of drugs intended to fight inflammation.[1]

2. Brain protection: Turmeric can protect against the development of cognitive disorders like dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, two conditions often associated with Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor, or BDNF, a type of growth hormone. Scientists have discovered that curcumin positively affects the BDNF levels in the brain, and may delay or even reverse a number of brain diseases or age-related degenerative conditions.[2]

3. Risk reduced for several types of cancer: In reality, turmeric could very well be one of the most potent natural anti-cancer agents there is. Not only can it prevent the growth of cancer cells, but it also blocks the development and spread of cancer and, some believe, may even hold the cure for several cancers.[3] You can read more about that here.

4. Improve your digestion: Daily consumption of turmeric can reduce gas and bloating, stimulate the gallbladder and prevent inflammation of the digestive tract. That said, turmeric should not be taken on a daily basis by people suffering from gallbladder disease, as the over-stimulating properties of turmeric can worsen that condition.[4]

5. Heart health: Curcumin can reduce LDL – or bad cholesterol – which will then prevent blood clotting, while removing arterial plaque buildup.[5]

6. Eases arthritis: Scientists admit that more research is needed in this particular use of turmeric, however, that said, many people have reported various levels of improvement in this condition when they consume a teaspoon of the queen of spices per day. The theory is that the curcumin in turmeric helps battle chronic inflammation and thereby reduces the pain associated therewith. Some even say that curcumin supplements work much better than over-the-counter or prescription medications aimed at reducing inflammation – and all without any side-effects.[6]

7. Delays aging and increases longevity: Being able to live longer and stay healthier seems to be on everyone’s mind these days. One of the secrets to achieving this may lie in magical turmeric. Free radicals and inflammation are both believed to cause premature aging, and curcumin has proven in many cases to reverse those conditions.[7]

As noted further by Amy Goodrich of

Turmeric contains phytochemicals and nutrients with several beneficial effects such as protecting body organs from damage, reducing cholesterol levels, improving blood-vessel health, controlling inflammation, combating infection, and more.

Curcumin, turmeric’s most precious component, is very effective against cancer, too. It prevents the formation of, and neutralizes free radicals, or molecules that destroy other molecules in healthy cells and tissues.

It enhances the effect of antioxidant enzymes in the body and also acts as an antioxidant itself. It stops DNA changes that lead to cancer, as well as interfere with enzymes that are needed for cancer progression.

Something to be aware of is that curcumin, turmeric’s most active and healing compound, is not well-absorbed by the body. One way to improve absorption is to add just a pinch of black pepper to your teaspoon of turmeric.

In addition, not all sources of turmeric are equally healthful. A source of pure, organic turmeric can be found here.

    June 2016 updated article: The Cancer Pioneers
    This article is dedicated to brilliant and dedicated scientists, researchers and clinicians who set about to solve the riddle of cancer. Together, they have contributed immensely to our knowledge of how to control and eradicate this disease. All of them achieved some success using different natural, low-toxicity approaches to healing the body of cancer. Sadly, they are not given nearly the recognition they deserve by the medical profession. In fact, most have been denigrated and persecuted for their pioneering efforts. That is the reason for this article. Please read Cancer And Alternative Approaches if you are researching cancer.
    Please keep this in mind when using herbs of any kind. That is, they may indeed have cancer-fighting ability, and definitely do. However, they are often toxic and the patient therefore never recovers fully, and often dies prematurely due to toxicity from the herbs. Dr. Koch Update. Near the end of his long life (he lived to over 100) Dr. Koch realized that his cancer medicines were too difficult to reproduce and that “the old standby”, as he called the pancreatic enzyme therapy, was better, overall. It works by a completely different mechanism that slowly starves the cancer for oxygen and other nutrients.

    It is somewhat crude and simple, but elegant and safe. In contrast, his remedies produced very powerful healing reactions and the patients needed almost constant monitoring and “boosters” to keep them moving along well. Dr. Koch also realized, like Drs. Kelley and Gerson, that a vegetarian diet for his cancer patients was fine for a short time, but that it is not an adequate diet today. Many have adopted his vegetarian diet to prevent cancer, only to be sorely disappointed today. He never advocated a raw food diet.
    Coffee enema therapy. We owe Dr. Gerson a particular debt of gratitude for the use of the coffee enema. Dr. Gerson said he learned about it from a house maid, who said her family used it whenever anyone got sick. She also told him several family members used it daily and lived to over 120 years of age, in all cases. This peaked Dr. Gerson’s curiosity and he decided to try it on his early tuberculosis cases. He was astounded at the results.

    Gerson Therapy Update. The Gerson cancer therapy is still offered today in Mexico by Dr. Gerson’s daughter, Charlotte Gerson Strauss, and perhaps at other hospitals and clinics mainly in Mexico. However, the Gerson therapy, as reported to me by several unbiased observers, is not working well today, and nowhere near as well as it did 60 or 70 years ago. I will suggest the following reasons for this:…..

    Essiac Update. This simple herbal tea is still available in health food stores and via the internet, and continues to help some people with cancer. It has been copied by many companies, and some have tried to improve upon it as well, so it is hard to know which brand of Essiac tea is best. If you wish to try it, I am told to observe the following cautions:
    1. Buy only the original formula of four herbs only. Check carefully for this.
    2. Exercise care about combining it with other therapies, as they can ruin its effectiveness. Coffee enemas and near infrared lamp sauna therapy should be okay, however.
    3. Some recommend an excellent diet with it, and this should not interfere at all. I would suggest only whole foods, many cooked vegetables, not raw ones, no fruit, and be sure to have some animal protein daily, but not a lot, and do not eat red meat or eggs until the cancer is in remission
    The terrain is all important. Dr. Rife found that the proper terrain or cellular environment (which is what we alter with nutritional balancing science ) in the cells contains inhibitors that keep the somatids in the healthy symbiotic microcycle. As health declines, these inhibitors are lost and the somatids, turn into opportunistic parasites. The somatid pattern can function as an indicator of serious disease. The somatid pattern associated with cancer, for instance, is usually observed in the blood up to two years before the manifestation of the disease.
    Update on Dr. Rife. Today many companies offer for sale what are called “Rife machines”. These are frequency generators that transmit frequencies into a person. Some are genuine, while others are less helpful. Most are overpriced. Some people find them helpful. However, as with Dr. Gerson’s work, today the bodies are much more yin, and frequency generators are a yin healing method that is therefore less effective today than it was almost 80 years ago.

      How to make Turmeric Garlic Tarka Dhal, using different types of spice to create this mouth watering Bengali style tarka dhal spicy hot and tasty

      The Kolkata twist to this dal recipe is a generous flavouring using the traditional panch phoron – a mix of five spices, used in Bengali cooking. The panch phoron consists of black mustard seeds (rai), cumin seeds (jeera), fennel seeds (saunf), nigella seeds (kalonji) and fenugreek seeds (methi). In some recipes, radhuni (celery seeds) are used instead of mustard seeds. I’ve added it both in the sauteeing of masalas and in the final tadka. To give it a more Bengali flavour, you can use mustard oil for the tempering. Traditionally, liberal doses of ghee is used in the making of this Rajasthani Dal.

    Curcumin HelpsOffset Stress, Boosting Adrenalsand Memory

    Too much stress sets in motion a chain reaction of wear and tear, typically building upon itself and causing multiple health problems. Being able to tolerate stress and have your body return to a baseline of calm following stress is an ability. An interesting animal study shows that curcumin can help you out.

    Curcumin has gained widespread attention this year for its ability to stabilize your genome, helping genes work better and preventing adverse epigenetic changes, including changes that lead to cancer. High stress levels are one factor that induce adverse epigenetic changes or enable gene weak spots to manifest as health problems.

    In the current experiment animals were exposed to various forms of significant stress. As expected, the stress caused excessive adrenal activity leading to adrenal burnout, increased free radical damage, and memory problems. Treatment with curcumin reduced the adverse effects of stress, helping the adrenal glands cope better, reducing the memory problems, and lowering the free radical damage.

    This study shows that curcumin possesses adaptogenic properties that may be able to help you better tolerate the demands and pressures in your life.
