The Benefits of Turmeric Tea

Many people know about the healing benefits of turmeric: with the active ingredient curcumin, it is a potent anti-inflammatory, a digestive aid, a powerful anti-oxidant and may help to prevent cancer and other diseases. Turmeric is available loose as a spice, in pill form and as an extract. But did you know that one of the most effective ways to take turmeric is as a tea?

If you don’t feel like taking turmeric as a pill, or using it in a curry, the tea may be a more accessible way to incorporate it into your diet. Served hot or cold, turmeric tea is a refreshing addition to your daily routine. It’s delicious all by itself, but some people like to add ginger, honey or lemon for flavor. You can brew it in water or almond milk, whatever beverage you prefer.

Dr. Mercola has great things to say about turmeric (video), and Dr. Andrew Weill has covered the benefits of turmeric in numerous articles – including treating Alzheimer’s, cancer, and arthritis. Watch his brief, informative video on how to make turmeric tea.

Avoid Chronic Inflammation With The Right Diet

| by Merlian News

There’s been a lot of news the last few years about chronic inflammation and its debilitating effects on the body, but researchers are still unclear about the causes. Under normal circumstances, the body is supposed to “inflame” a little to mount an immune response and counteract infection — it’s when the body stays in that state that problems occur. As reported at www.easyhealthoptions.com : “ Like every system in the body, the key is balance – because inflammation does have a serious downside. It’s a slippery slope: A normal healing response can progress to an ongoing inflammatory process that spreads throughout the body under the right (or rather, wrong) conditions…”

| by Susun Weed

There are good reasons to use antibiotic drugs. That said, most physicians and healthcare professionals agree that they are often overused. The overuse of antibiotics has created “superbugs” that are immune to the most common antibiotics. But on a more personal level, antibiotics can wreak havoc on your own immune system and gastrointestinal tract. The good news is that there is an all-natural alternative to antibiotics that I’ve found to be very effective.

Dr Mercola: Using Aloe Juice to Treat Heartburn

| by Merlian News

In a recent article, Dr. Mercola writes, “An estimated 15 to 20 million Americans use acid inhibiting drugs to treat heartburn. Indeed, PPIs are among the most widely prescribed drugs today, with annual sales of about $14 billion. This despite the fact that they were never intended to treat heartburn in the first place. Research clearly shows that proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are severely overprescribed and misused, and do far more harm than good in the long run.”

How to Block Nearly All the Mercury in Your Diet by Mike Adams

| by Mike Adams

How to block nearly all the mercury in your diet using common, everyday foods: from www.naturalnews.com, Mike Adams writes: As part of my ongoing scientific research into heavy metals, elemental retention and metals capturing ( see explanatory videos here), I have identified and documented anti-heavy-metals substances which have a remarkable natural affinity for binding with and “capturing” heavy metals. Why is this important? Because much of the “scientific” community today is actually corporate-driven junk science that’s trying to poison you with mercury in vaccines, mercury in dental fillings, heavy metals in fluoride, GMOs, pesticides and more.
