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.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…
