Turmeric has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years to cure liver ailments, stomach problems and skin problems. Turmeric has been shown to be effective in treating inflammatory illnesses also. I think now that there are clinical trials being done to see if it is effective in treating cancer.
I am even more convinced that food is medicine and can be used to treat our ailments. Food can also be a preventative measure if we take the time to eat the right way to heal our bodies.
