The Wonder Spice

Turmeric is a versatile spice that has many medical values in it. “If I had only a single herb to depend upon for all possible health and dietary needs, I would without much hesitation choose the Indian spice turmeric” says David Frawley (founder and director of the American Institute of Vedic Studies) “There is little that it cannot do in the realm of healing and much that no other herb is able to accomplish”.

Turmeric is composed of hundreds of molecules with varied biological properties. One particular database can trace 326 biological activities of turmeric. There are at least 20 molecules that are anti-biotic, anti-oxidants – 10, anti-tumor – 12, cancer preventives – 14 molecules, anti-inflammatory – 12 and the list goes on. It has a name “kanchani” which means “the golden goddess”. It is also considered an outstanding herb in Ayurvedic texts.

The properties of turmeric would be startling to list out-

alternative – tends to cure or restore good health

digestive – promoting proper digestion

stimulant – quickening healing process

appetizer – stimulating appetite

antispasmodic- relieve muscular contractions

antibacterial – inhibits bacterial growth

analgesic- relieves pain

anti-inflammatory- reduces inflammation

carminative – relieves gas in alimentary tract

diuretic – helps to increased urine output promoting body get rid of excess water

antitumor – treats cancer

antioxidant – stops reactions of oxidation

anti-allergic – prevents the allergic reactions

antiseptic – makes body free of disease-causing organisms

astringent – constricts organic tissues

cardiovascular – helps in healthy blood vessels

vulnerary – heals wounds

cholagogue – stimulates gallbladder contraction to promote bile flow

hemostatic – stops bleeding

Turmeric also has an effect on healing fevers, poison, cough, insanity, diarrhea, urinary tract infections, cough and external wounds. This single herb balances all three doshas – Kapha, Vata and Pitta.

It is used in first aid due to its antiseptic, vulnerary and antibiotic properties. It helps to stop bleeding and heals the wounds quickly. Current cancer research suggests that including turmeric in diet regularly can suppress the “initiation or post-initiation stages” of cancer cells. Ayurveda uses the alternative property of turmeric in purifying and moving blood. It protects the liver and heart from invading pathogens and help to rebuild new cells.

Turmeric has a regulative effect on menstrual cycles in women and aids in childbirth too. The antioxidant effect of turmeric helps in protecting the lungs from pollution. It increases your metabolic health, brain health, boosts immunity, protects the cardiovascular system. It is used for skin health and its property of neutralizing the free radicals helps in relieving the joint pain and decreases joint damage. In India turmeric is a part of the routine diet and takes a special place in the tradition too.

It is indeed a wonder herb to be taken for a promising good health and glowing skin.
