Turmeric Milk

 

Turmeric-Tea-with-Honey

 

Turmeric has been used in recipes and as Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years. It has both anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, and therefore offers many health benefits. It can be used to relieve swelling and pain due to headaches and small wounds and has been called ‘natural aspirin’ in Ayurvedic medicine.  When applied to small cuts and wounds, its anti-bacterial properties can stem blood flow by aiding with blood clotting, preventing infections and healing wounds. Combined with milk, turmeric is used as a drink, lotion or even a face mask.

Turmeric Milk is very soothing and has many potential health benefits:

  • bone health and arthritis relief, Turmeric is known to help people suffering from joint pains.
  • anti-oxidants, Turmeric milk helps fights free radicals that damage skin. In addition to drinking it, Turmeric milk face masks can improve skin’s glow and elasticity.
  • relieves cough, sore throat and cold. (I find turmeric milk tastes better than any other medication for this, and I have noticed that the recurrence of cold & cough has decreased.) Use almond or other types of milk when treating cough or cold, as regular milk can increase mucus in the body.)
  • treats diarrhea and indigestion. Use low-fat milk for this, because high fat milk can aggravate diarrhea.
  •  makes a soothing mask or lotion to reduce redness of skin or patches.
  • works as a great general body detox. Taking it daily can help in blood purification and liver detox. A healthy liver is so important to avoid sever health problems.
  • is said to slow progress of Alzheimer’s disease and lower risk of various types of cancer

Turmeric Milk does so much good and is very easy to make:

First, you can easily substitute regular milk for almond milk, or any other type of your choice. (I regularly use almond or soy milk. Lactose intolerance need not stand in your way of enjoying the goodness of Turmeric Milk.)

Heat 8 oz of milk to almost boiling (do not boil the milk). Add 1 teaspoon of powdered turmeric, stir, let it cool a little, and enjoy. I always add a spoonful of honey for my sweet-tooth. So good.

If you prefer to use turmeric root instead of powder: heat a 1/2 to 1 inch piece of turmeric in 8 oz of milk for about 15 minutes to almost boiling. Strain out the turmeric, let it cool a little, and enjoy.

To change things up, few peppercorns can be added along with ginger, especially when treating cold. Peppercorns are said to improve absorption of turmeric by the body.

For Turmeric Face Mask or Wash:  take ¼ cup of whole milk and add  ½ teaspoon ground turmeric. Soak a clean wash-cloth in the mixture and apply to affected skin. Leave on for 10 minutes before washing off.

 

Pregnant women should not to use turmeric unless cleared by their physician. Normally turmeric in food is safe. It is, however, like ginger, a natural blood thinner, those who require surgery must stop taking any form of turmeric – food or supplements a couple of weeks before surgery. Also, it can react with diabetic medication and medication taken to reduce stomach acid. Please speak to your physician.

Rosemary

Rosemary_2(1)

Rosemary is a popular Mediterranean herb used to flavor many soups, sauces, and meat dishes. For centuries, Rosemary has also been used as a remedy for a variety of ailments.

Use:

  • Cancer Prevention – studies of its efficacy against breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, leukemia, and skin cancer show promising results.
  • Improved Memory – research found that rosemary contains carnosic acid that has neuroprotective properties believed to protect against Alzheimer’s disease and normal memory loss that happens with aging. In tests, even the smell of rosemary has been found to improve memory.
  • Improved Mood – the same study that found that smelling rosemary improved the memory of test subjects also found that their mood was significantly improved.
  •  Pain Relief – a popular natural migraine remedy for centuries:  boil rosemary in a large pot of water and pour into a bowl, place a towel over your head and lean over the pot to inhale the steam for about 10 minutes.  Essential oil of rosemary can be applied topically as a treatment for arthritis, sore muscles, and other joint and muscle pains.
  • Anti-Inflammatory – Rosemary contains two potent anti-inflammatories, carnosic acid and carnosol.  Studies found that they inhibit an enzyme that causes pain and inflammation in the body, as well as the production of excess nitric oxide, which also plays a role in the inflammatory process.
  • Immune Boost – thanks to antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic properties Rosemary can boost not only the immune system but the overall health of the body, and heal in so many ways.
  • Antibacterial – studies show Rosemary’s powerful antibacterial properties effective against bacteria that cause stomach ulcers and Staph infections.
  • Improve Digestive Health – often used to help treat digestive problems like upset stomach, constipation, indigestion, and much more.  Also helps prevent food-borne illnesses when ingested with foods such as meat or eggs.
  • Healthy Scalp and Hair– use as hair oil or rinse to stimulate hair growth, improve shine, and get rid of flakes.
  • Freshens Breath – can be used as a natural mouthwash: steep fresh rosemary in a pint of heated water, strain and use as a mouth rinse as often as you like. Keep in the fridge, covered.
  • Diuretic – can help get rid of bloating and water retention. When  used regularly, it may help increase urine flow, kidneys function at optimal levels to get rid of excess water in the body.
  • Respiratory Health – the scent of the essential oil may help with congestion due to colds, allergies, respiratory infections, and the flu.  Boil fresh rosemary in a pot of water, place it in a bowl, and breathe in the steam to help clear the lungs and throat, relieve sinus or head pain associated with respiratory conditions.
  • Detox the Liver – used to treat liver problems for hundreds of years, studies found that rosemary extract reduces cirrhosis, a compound that is toxic to the liver.
  • Anti-Aging – a popular ingredient in anti-aging skin creams because it helps reduce puffiness, stimulates cell regeneration, increases firmness, and improves overall skin tone.  Rosemary is a natural anti-inflammatory and increases blood flow to the skin.

Precautions:  Rosemary is considered safe with no side effects.  However, pregnant women should avoid consuming large amounts because it may lead to uterine contractions and miscarriage. Since it may raise blood pressure, people with high blood pressure should not take rosemary.

Liver Cleansing Recipes

The liver is very important to our physical wellness. It is known as the “filter” of the body. Its main function is to remove toxins and wastes from the system. However, due to poor diet and overindulgence of unhealthy foods the liver can easily become congested.

If the liver is not capable of removing all harmful wastes and toxins, they will build up in the tissues. This will eventually lead to different health issues, like cholesterol-related problems, digestive problems, constipation, allergies and other such illnesses. Even body pain and chronic fatigue are symptoms of an unhealthy liver.

A occational herbal detox is a safe and effective way to improve bile production for building liver tissues,  help the liver in detoxifying the body, and can keep our liver healthy and undamaged.

Most herbal liver detox recipes contain herbs, fruits and vegetables for ingredients. Herbs, fruits and vegetables high in fiber are proven to be very effective in flushing away toxins that are stored in our liver.

Herbal Liver Detox Recipe #1
Combine half cup of water, 2 tablespoons of pure lemon extract, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of molasses (black-strap) and a dash of cayenne pepper.
Drink this blend of herbs and fruits every morning with an empty stomach for 10 days.
Herbal Liver Detox Recipe #2
Use 1 carrot, a beetroot, 1 cucumber and celery, wash all of the ingredients and peel the carrot and beetroot. Dice and juice all, then drink the juice within 30 minutes. The juice drink is good for breakfast and one of the most effective herbal liver detox recipes.
Remember that having a normal and healthy liver is the key to physical wellness. Always consult your physician if you are taking prescription medications.
