Tumeric is from the root of the southern Asian shrub Curcuma long and is used extensively for color and flavor in curry cuisines. Many studies have shown it to be a useful anti-inflammatory, but there are so many other uses.
Tumeric is also an anti-cancer medicinal.
I just read another important article regarding research and useful supplements to help cancer patients.
That having been said, I attended a seminar with Nalini Chilkov, L.Ac. O.M.D., where I obtained the diagram below. You don’t really need to understand it. Just know that every little circle is a cancer causing gene that tumeric can affect negatively.
From “Integrative Cancer Answers” by Nalini Chilkov, L.Ac. O.M.D.
There are plenty of great supplements, which I recommend, but there are also many useful and delicious dietary recipes. Here’s one I love.
