How to Use Turmeric to Reduce Inflammation

www.turmericforhealth.com
Inflammation is swelling. It's the body's reaction to injury or infection. Arthritis, meningitis, sinusitis and the like (ailments with the suffix itis in them) are caused by inflammation and needs attention before worse infection sets in.

Here's where turmeric comes in as a practical home remedy. While seeing your medical doctor for consultation, try turmeric or "luyang dilaw" in Tagalog. It's active antioxidant---curcumin---is known to be powerfully anti-inflammatory.

Aside from being a good first aid remedy against arthritis, muscle sprains, pains and injuries, it can also prevent or slow down cancer. About 70 percent of cancers are due to inflammation. It helps prevents liver disease and digestive problems like irritable bowel syndrome or IBS.

How do you use turmeric to reduce inflammation?

The simplest way is making tea. Just peel off turmeric roots (peel off thinly), wash thoroughly, and boil until the brew turns dark. Then take it warm as tea.

A lot of delicious Filipino food dishes use turmeric for coloring, but making tea of it is the best and simplest for me. Some put sugar in the tea, but I prefer pure turmeric tea. What I recommend is squeezing fresh lemon or kalamansi juice into warm turmeric tea.

Though turmeric is all-natural, consult with your medical doctor first before taking it, especially if you are under medication.

Here are top 10 health benefits:

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:

Apple Stem Cell Health Benefits and Why You Need Them

We all know how advanced aging damages skin quality. But plant stem cells, especially from apples, were found to powerfully delay aging and its toll on the skin. This was discovered in many plant stem cell researches.  Stem cells are plant cells extracted from plant stems. As simple as that. So they're all-natural. And they divide and renew themselves continually as long as they're alive. Imagine if your cells are like that. Swiss Malus Domestica Apple plant stem cell (malus domestica) grown and enhanced in Switzerland since the 18th century is most apt for stimulating aging human skin stem cell, lessening unsightly skin wrinkles. It prolongs or extends the life of skin cells so you get a more youthful and radiant look.  When you age your skin cells' ability to divide slows down, unable to create enough new skin cells. So you get lots more of old or dying cells than new cells. These skin cells in your body must be replaced---and here is where the Swiss apple stem cells ent…
