Turmeric Scoop

A few weeks ago I posted about  Maya Kaimal Simmer sauce. This simmer sauce is curry based, and curry is derived from the Turmeric Root. Think about how foods affect the way you feel immediately after eating and the very next day. When you are eating the right foods it can energize your spirit and heal you, the wrong foods and your cranky, bloated and not feeling so great. Here’s a little encouraging turmeric story! This morning I called my mom on the phone to check in and see what she was up to. Our regular chit-chat of the morning took a very uplifting turn. Let me background this story by stating that my mom is pretty on top of her health and definitely errs on the side of “conscience food curious”.  In recent years she has definitely become a bit of a foodie curious health researcher. ( Hmm, wonder where I get my passionate interest from..) “Diana, it’s a miracle!”she tells me.  My mom developed some arthritis in the past few years and the inflammatory effects have been pretty painful for her in the mornings when she wakes up. About six weeks ago she started taking high quality turmeric pills that were suggested to her by her physician.( A particularly forward thinking doctor who adds functional medical therapies to her practice) One day last week she woke up with no pain at all which she shared with me today! Mom went from severe stiffness to a dramatically manageable level of pain. She believes it’s the turmeric that made the difference, with no medicine at all. Now, whether it’s the turmeric pills or not, doesn’t matter, because BELIEF is the power of success! So, YAY for recovering and feeling good! Take charge of your health and wellness and share the message to all your loved ones out there!

Science Scoop: Turmeric is scientifically proven to decrease inflammation in the body. Inflammation is proven to be the source of a litany of ailments. Mom has taken up Restorative Yoga and learned some card games the past few months as well. This is bringing health into her life on a deeply nutritional level by relieving stress and adding to her healing. Yoga (or any meditative practice ) is proven to lower cortisol levels. Cortisol levels control inflammation, and inflammation flares up your body and causes illness. So add some mindful meditative healing to your life and chill out those stress levels!

Give things a chance, give it time, it may take a few months to see results, but nothing easy comes fast.
