How To Use This Super Root To Conquer Cancer & Keep You Young

Herbology · Nutrition

There are so many healing plants on this Earth. When it comes to the “C” word, the search for nature’s medicine can lead you to many wonderful, and dare I say miraculous, herbs and flowers. When you come across certain “powerhouse” foods, ones that when ingested work with the body’s intelligence to be utilized exactly where they are needed, you sing it from the rooftops. Today I’m singing about a fabulous root full of health benefits that will blow your mind.

Turmeric!

How can turmeric enhance your life?! The possibilities are endless, and I’m going to share just 3 ways that this food can help combat Cancers.

This amazing root is not only beneficial for overall health (there are a lot of ailments that can benefit from its use), but it is also particularly helpful for preventing any type of cancer (especially skin cancers).

Here’s why turmeric absolutely needs to be part of your daily regime – whether you’re dealing with cancer or not:

 

Turmeric Both Prevents and Treats Cancer

Turmeric and its main component curcumin, has also been shown to stop tumor growth and reverse the damage done.

There’s a reason it’s called “tumor-wreck”!

In fact, when combined with certain vegetables (cabbage, watercress, broccoli, brussel sprouts, kale, cauliflower, kohlrabi, turnips, etc.), this study showed turmeric was able to prevent and treat cancer – particularly prostate cancer. The same is being shown for breast cancer, colon cancer, neuroblastoma, cancers caused by HPV (including cervical and oral cancers), melanoma, and more.

More and more research is showing what ancient medicine has known for a long time – that this health-boosting spice is more than up for the task of fighting cancer.

 

Turmeric Assists With Detox

As discussed in the opening sections of my online course The Cancer Warrior: Building Resiliency the Natural Way, a body with cancer is a body that needs to release a lot of toxins and toxic debris. Containing powerful antioxidants as well as antifungal, antiseptic, and anti-bacterial properties, turmeric is an important addition to your fight against carcinogenic toxins. Turmeric also cleanses the blood and increases circulation, allowing the body a smoother road to rid itself of toxins – an important part of overcoming this dis-ease.

 

Turmeric Reduces Pain & Inflammation

Similar to its “cousin” root ginger, turmeric has powerful analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. It can also help overcome fatigue and depression. The high amount of antioxidants that turmeric contains also fights, slows, and repairs the harmful oxidation process in the body that causes aging and other dis-ease.

With the pain and side effects that a Cancer Warrior endures, turmeric is a formidable ally in the fight back to health.

 

How To Use Turmeric

As always, fresh is best. If you can use the fresh root in your cooking and other recipes and remedies, you will get the most benefit. However, some is better than none – if ground turmeric is what is most accessible to you, then by all means use it!

Mythbuster Moment:

Do I need black pepper to “activate” the curcumin in turmeric?

The answer is – No.

This is a common health myth circulated for many years. Black pepper can irritate the stomach for some people, so there is no need to use it where it is not needed.

 

RECIPES

I love adding turmeric to my Lemon-Honey-Ginger Water recipe. It packs an extra punch of anti-inflammation and adds vibrant color! Turmeric Ginger Shots are also a powerful way to get the benefits of both ginger and turmeric.

“Golden milk” is all the rage these days – and it’s a perfect drink for fall! Here’s my favorite recipe:

This refreshing drink is extremely satisfying and nourishing. Turmeric and cinnamon are the ultimate anti-inflammatory spices, and apple is a deep detoxifier and hydrator.
