The Amazing Benefits of Turmeric

The Amazing Benefits of Turmeric

As a professional businessman who faced a major heath challenge, when just at the point of retirement with an expected future of enjoying the fruits of my diligent work in a career that I truly loved and enjoyed. I would like to share my story with you and the related  experiences I had in finding the cause and a subsequently a solution, just one part of which, took me to begin using an ancient far eastern herb called turmeric, a natural yet versatile remedy for many ailments, which goes back many thousands of years.


The history of Turmeric goes way back to the Ryukyu Dynasty and was found growing in the hills of a tiny Japanese tropical island called Okinawa. At the time the Island was part of the Chinese empire, and as many of you are well aware, turmeric spread out across the continent of Asia and was used as a spice herb in many far eastern recipes. One that many of you will recognise is the famous Indian dishes of ‘masala ‘ and ‘tandori’, both of which use turmeric to not only taste great, but notable for the rich ‘orange’ appearance as well.

I’d like to explain the health benefits of curcumin, the active ingredient in the autumn turmeric plant.


Believe it or not, the curcumin from the turmeric plant, has been used for a long, long time! I mean it’s been used for over 4000 years in Asia, as the all-natural, almighty cure, medicine and relatively recently scientists in the Western world have  started to back up the incredible health benefits with over 9,000 medical research studies.

The first benefit is that it is highly anti-inflammatory, it is 100% safe and an all-natural pain relief remedy.

It relieves chronic joint pain, back pain, neck and muscle pain and even as I was to discover, invaluable for relieving the chronic and debilitating pain of arthritis.
After all it was the recommended use of turmeric, (prepared correctly) which was the turning point, in my own personal major health challenge, just 4 short years ago.

Another Benefit is that it can not only help people with Alzheimer’s by reducing the fever inside the brain, but turmeric  can even prevent Alzheimer’s , because it helps  improve the brain function memory level and everything from mood changes to the depression that occurs in patients with that condition.

Turmeric really is a powerful anti-inflammatory

Yet another major benefit, is that turmeric boosts the body’s antioxidant mechanism.
That means the ‘free radicals’ responsible for rapid aging, body decay, breakdown and damage to DNA, are effectively removed by the active ingredient curcumin from the autumn turmeric plant.

Everybody knows that heart disease is the biggest killer in the world, well turmeric (curcumin) works for heart disease, it’s known to clean up your arteries and if you have plaque in your arteries, turmeric will clean up and eventually eliminate that plaque.

Turmeric works to reduce high blood pressure and high cholesterol as well

Turmeric is also a great natural remedy for type 2 diabetes and works by balancing the blood sugar levels in the body.

There are many other benefits in turmeric, it supports detoxification, it’s an antibacterial, it will fight against colds, coughing and influenza, it’s a home remedy for asthma.

Recently several studies have shown, that turmeric can decrease cancer cells, by reducing and eliminating the damaged cells.

Many people have discovered that it also helps to break down fat cells, thereby helping you
with weight loss.

Think it sounds too good to be true?

I suggest you check out the benefits for yourself!  I did, and it has certainly helped me to maintain and improve my chronic auto-immune condition.

Thank you, and I do hope you enjoyed reading this post.
