7 Amazing Benefits of Turmeric

by June Fuentes on February 2, 2017 in Dinner Table, Food


Last year my son was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. This is the first time we have ever had to deal with something like that with our children and was surprised when his specialist advised us to give him turmeric along with the medicine he prescribed.

I looked into it some more and found that it has many benefits including:

1. It is an anti-inflammatory.

2. It is an antioxidant and helps with pain.

3. Prevents blood clotting.

4. It is an anti-depressant.

5. Helps arthritis.

6. Helps with stomach problems.

7. Helps to treat cancer.

So now he has been taking it for nearly a year with great results. Our doctor says his condition is doing much better and that is a huge relief to us. We are grateful for natural options to help with healing when we can. He currently takes it in pill form with liquids but you can also buy it fresh (and organic) from the store and make tea or use it in recipes that you cook. You can also get the powdered kind, they have many varieties now, I have even seen it included in bone broth.




Have you tried turmeric?

If so, what kind do you use?

Both my daughter and I have become intolerant to many foods in the last 2 years: all dairy food, spicy, sausages, pork, ham, etc. I did start to add turmeric to our food, found in the grocery store in the seasoning aisle. But what has helped us the most has been taking enzymes and probiotics from Isotonix and a specific probiotics, the one from DoTerra. My daughter only takes the latter and I believe it has been very, very helpful to us. Just thought I’d share that!
