There is one medicinal spice that emerged in the early years of human culture and is today very supported by modern science because its benefits for human health are proved.
Turmeric, instead of causing more side effects than therapeutic ones, like many patented pharmaceutical medications, it causes side benefits. It has been empirically demonstrated that it modulates positively more than 160 psychological pathways in the mammalian body.
It is known that no food or herb is good for everyone, and everything can cause unwanted side effects, but turmeric does not belong to this category. It has been compared to hydrocortisone, ibuprofen, chemotherapy agents, etc. Turmeric has been used for over 6000 years in Ayurvedic medicine and no other modern medicine is close to its safe use. Although it relieves human suffering, turmeric will never get the FDA approval because it lacks exclusivity, patentability and thus profitability. FDA has a “gold standard” for determining the value of a prospective medicine which disloyal to the old saying “he who owns the gold makes the rules”. If there’s no investor willing to pay in advance and possibly lose more than 800 million dollars, the FDA clinical trials won’t happen.
By analyzing over 5000 study summaries form the National Library of Medicine’s bibliography (MEDLINE) we found more than 600 possible health benefits turmeric and /or its basic polyphenol (curcumin) can offer.
Some of the most beneficial characteristics are the following:
Killing cancer resistant to many other drugs
Killing cancer stem cells, which are the root of all cancers
Preventing radiation caused damage
Preventing heavy metal toxicity
Prevents and cancels pathologies connected with Alzheimer’s disease.
Turmeric does not only cure various diseases at the same time, and does not only improve health problems that don’t react to conventional treatments, but there are 600 more health issues that can be prevented or cured with turmeric. There is also the fact that turmeric grows independently on Earth which threatens billions of dollars in the pharmaceutical industry’s profit.
