Health Beat: To the Tune of Turmeric!
I began a regimen of turmeric as a dietary supplement about 4 months ago to aid with my digestive issues and get relief from the damage that acid can cause. I wanted something natural versus the medicine that was prescribed for me. After some research, I decided to go with turmeric as it is closely related to ginger, which I love, and for it's healing properties! You should make it a part of your daily diet too; try it as a tea as well, it's amazingly good!
Turmeric derives from the curcuma root of the longa plant. It is a powerful anti-inflammatory in both Chinese and Indian systems of holistic health. It was traditionally named "Indian saffron" for it's color and has been used throughout history as a healing remedy.
