Today, I’m recording the news on WXYZ ABC, Detroit. We’re talking about the benefits of turmeric. Turmeric is incredibly beneficial. My family and I use it with our foods almost every single day; to us, it makes the food healthier – it doesn’t change the taste very much.
I’ve just talked on the news about the fact that turmeric contains curcumin, which is one of the most potent anti-inflammatory products on this planet. Unlike so many other medicines, it has very few side effects, and it’s covered by all the insurance plans. You can get this in most supermarkets; you don’t need a prescription.
We know most diseases you might have started with inflammation. If you can decrease inflammation, whether it be heart disease, or it is an autoimmune disease like Crohn’s disease, you can fight it.
For me, the best tip is to use turmeric in your foods. – Tweet this!
Use it naturally in some of the foods that you eat. We use it with chicken, fish, and curry dishes, even with vegetables. You can put it in your food instead of salt, or even spice up some of your drinks. The key is that you can use something that’s part of your diet to fight inflammation, fight disease. Talk to your doctor first because some of the additives that are in turmeric you can find in health food stores, or even at supermarkets, sometimes contains piperine. Piperine can interact with some medications people take, so check with your doctor.
The bottom-line is that we can do a lot of good and change a lot the status of disease if we can start using turmeric regularly. We have done this for our family, and I think it’s going to pay dividends for our kids and us.
Make healthy living a part of every day.
The light in me honors the light in you.
