Health Tips with Turmeric benefits
Category : Health Tips
THATS it, look no further than your kitchen for the route to beautiful skin, hair, and that general healthy glow. The message that simple and natural is best is not new. Eastern cultures have been using the earth’s natural resources for beauty preparations and health remedies since the early civilizations. For the entire ‘natural’ hypes in today’s sophisticated world of cosmetology, why not really go back to basics. Avoid synthetics and preservatives and cook up some concoctions with humble fresh fruits, herbs, and spices. The East has turmeric creams for colds and turmeric soap for skin diseases and rashes. Turmeric is also an ancient medicine. In the olden days, traditional doctors who prescribed turmeric a drug to strengthen the stomach and promote digestion as well as a general tonic and blood purifier used the rhizomes.
Drink milk to lessen the acidity and add a teaspoon of turmeric to help digestion. You can also take a teaspoon of turmeric powder with warm milk. Do this every day for a month and you’ll find your ulcers getting better. Turmeric with it antiseptic qualities is also said to be an effective remedy for chronic and throat irritations.
Half a teaspoon of fresh turmeric powder, mixed in 30 milliliters of warm milk is very effective in helping the throat; we prepare this mixture by pouring milk into a ladle with turmeric, then boiling it o’er low heat.
Turmeric is not only useful as a medicine but as a cosmetic. The golden rhizome is traditional used by the brides in the sub-continent as a skin bleacher.
“Every Indian bride before her wedding covers her skin [both the skin and body] with turmeric past. That is turmeric powder mixed with yogurt, or paste made from gram flour and water. After about two days, the skin becomes fair and soft.”
