If you are garlic lover (which is number one 'antibiotic' vegetable) put a bunch of cleaned garlic, about half Lb. or a quarter of a kilo in a oven proof ceramic or steel small dish, pour some olive oil on top generously, sprinkle on some pepper, then put 2 tablespoons of ground turmeric. Mix all with a spoon and let it be cooked in an oven for some 30 minutes. After garlic get cooked try it with meal or with your sandwich. Garlic comes out slightly burned and colored yellow because of turmeric.

 

600 Reasons Turmeric May Be The World's Most Important Herb

 

There is a medicinal spice so timelessly interwoven with the origins of human culture and metabolism, so thoroughly supported by modern scientific inquiry, as to be unparalleled in its proven value to human health and well-being.

Indeed, turmeric turns the entire drug-based medical model on its head. Instead of causing far more side effects than therapeutic ones, as is the case for most patented pharmaceutical medications, turmeric possesses hundreds of potential side benefits, having been empirically demonstrated to positively modulate over 160 different physiological pathways in the mammalian body.

While no food or herb is right for everyone, and everything has the potential for unintended, adverse side effects, turmeric is truly unique in its exceptionally high margin of safety vis-à-vis the drugs it has been compared with, e.g. hydrocortisone, ibuprofen, chemotherapy agents. Furthermore, nothing within the modern-day pharmaceutical armamentarium comes even remotely close to turmeric's 6,000 year track record of safe use in Ayurvedic medicine.[1]

 

Despite its vast potential for alleviating human suffering, turmeric will likely never receive the FDA stamp of approval, due to its lack of exclusivity, patentability and therefore profitability. Truth be told, the FDA's "gold standard" for proving the value of a prospective medicinal substance betrays the age old aphorism: "he who owns the gold makes the rules," and unless an investor is willing to risk losing the 800+ million dollars that must be spent upfront, the FDA-required multi-phased double-blind, randomized clinical trials will not occur. For additional details on this rather seedy arrangement read our article on the topic: Why The Law Forbids The Medicinal Use of Natural Substances.

Here at GreenMedInfo.com, we have reviewed over 5,000 study abstracts from the National Library of Medicine's bibliographic database known as MEDLINE and have discovered over 600 potential health benefits of turmeric, and/or its primary polyphenol known as curcumin. These can be viewed on our turmeric research page which is dedicated to disseminating the research on the topic to a larger audience.

Some of the most amazing demonstrated properties include:

  • Reducing Unhealthy Levels of Inflammation

Again, what is so amazing is not that turmeric may have value in dozens of health conditions simultaneously, or that it may improve conditions that are completely resistant to conventional treatment, but that there are over six hundred additional health conditions it may also be valuable in preventing and/or treating. Consider also the fact that turmeric grows freely on the Earth, and you will understand why its very existence threatens billions of dollars in pharmaceutical industry revenue.

Turmeric, also known as Curcurma Longa, is related to the well-known ginger plant and also produces a rhizome that grows just beneath the ground. It’s tall and brightly colored tropical green leaves are beautiful in the garden and commonly used in landscaping, but the rhizomes are harvested as food and medicine, or re-planted seasonally.

To grow this beneficial plant this, one only needs a few rhizomes, a pot and a sunny place. Just place a small section of the rhizome an inch or two under the soil and water regularly. They prefer tropical climates and plenty of rain, but are known to grow exponentially in a single season of 4-6 months with lots of water and sun. This is a remarkably easy to grow herb for everyday consumption and for preparedness gardens.

Turmeric is delicious in many recipes, and ideas for using it in the kitchen are easy to find. In addition to eating it in it’s raw form, it’s commonly dried and ground into a powder or used in many delicious variations of curry spices. High quality organic turmeric powder is available for cooking and crafting medicines, and turmeric supplements in the form of capsules can also readily be found. Additionally, there are also many forms of tinctures, and extracts, that can be used to various beneficial ends. Bio-dynamic, organic Turmeric is also used in the production of high quality multi-vitamins.

In recent years there has been a growing body of scientific evidence indicating that Turmeric has incredible medicinal value, and here are 10 amazing health benefits of turmeric

    Turmeric can help to prevent and heal some forms of cancer.
    Turmeric can be of significant benefit in the treatment and prevention of Diabetes.

Turmeric Extract Kills Highly Lethal Pancreatic Tumors, Preclinical Study Reveals

September 16th 2013
Written By: Sayer Ji, Founder
http://www.greenmedi...-study-revealed

Considering that the conventional treatment of advanced stage pancreatic cancer can result in as little as a 1% 5-year survival rate, new preclinical research on a liposomal turmeric extract that inhibits pancreatic tumor growth by 42% is all the more amazing.

A promising new study published in the journal Anticancer Research, a peer-reviewed medical journal published by the International Institute of Anticancer Research, reveals a unique turmeric extract known as liposomal curcumin may provide an ideal chemotherapy alternative in the treatment of highly lethal pancreatic cancers.[1]

Curcumin is the primarly polyphenol in turmeric, and has been the subject of extensive research demonstrating its ability to kill cancer cells, with over 1,500 studies available to view on Greenmedinfo.com relevant to over 100 distinct cancer types, including 24 studies demonstrating its anti-pancreatic cancer properties. [View all the curcumin studies.]

Liposomal curcumin utilizes a successful lipid-based drug delivery system, with some liposomal formulations having already received FDA approval.  Owing to curcumin's low water solubility and subsequent low systemic bioavailability, its encapsulation into liposomes (artificially-prepared vesicle composed of a lipid bilayer) greatly improves its ability to gain entry into the body by passing through the 'glucoronidation barrier' in the liver.

Exocrine pancreatic cancer is notorious for responding poorly to conventional treatment, with American Cancer Society statistics promising only a 14% 5-year survival rate in Stage IA cancers, spiraling down to only 1% for Stage IV types.[2]  Moreover, even when chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy results in the successful debulking of the tumor, and the patient manages to survive past 5 years, recurrence is still common; this often occurs as a direct result of conventional treatment, which damages the immune system and enriches the treatment-resistance tumorigenic cancer stem cell population within the post-treatment cancer survivor's body.

The new study was performed by researchers at the Department of Molecular Biology and Immunology, and Institute for Cancer Research, University of North Texas Health Science Center, Fort Worth, Texas. They determined the antitumor effects of a liposomal curcumin formulation against human pancreatic cancer cells through in vitro and xenograft studies, where the cells were implanted into mice to form tumors

The liposomal curcumin formulation was found to inhibit pancreatic cancer cell proliferation in vitro, and when administered to the animals intraperitoneally at a dose of 20 mg/kg, three-times a week for four weeks, a 42% suppression of tumor growth was observed compared to untreated controls.  This would be the equivalent of 1,360 mg for a 150 lb adult.  Note, the 20 mg/kg dose given to the test animals is 100 times lower than the LD50 for mice (i.e. the dose that would take to kill 50% of a test group).

Additionally, researchers observed "A potent antiangiogenic effect," characterized by a reduced number blood vessels and other pro-angiogenic factors associated with the growth of the tumor's blood supply.  

The researchers concluded, "These data clearly establish the efficacy of liposomal curcumin in reducing human pancreatic cancer growth in the examined model. The therapeutic curcumin-based effects, with no limiting side-effects, suggest that liposomal curcumin may be beneficial in patients with pancreatic cancer."

Considering the relatively high safety margin, affordability, accessibility and effectiveness (as demonstrated by pre-clinical research and a vast body of anecdotes) of turmeric extracts in fighting highly lethal cancers, we can only hope the medical establishment begins to incorporate these medicinal spices into their treatment protocols.  Considering how potent are the chemosensitizing effects of curcumin, it could be argued that it is unethical for them not to provide their patients the option of using these agents, or at the very least as adjuvants in integrative cancer care.

Wow it's good  for Gout :)

Turmeric for Gout

 

Gout is a form of arthritis characterized by the formation of uric acid crystals in the joints. It usually affects the big toe joint, causing severe pain and inflammation. It is more common in men than women and is more likely to occur over age 40. Eating purine-rich foods such as shellfish and consuming alcohol increase the risk of developing gout, although some people are genetically predisposed to it. If you suffer from gout, your doctor may prescribe anti-inflammatory drugs to help reduce symptoms. Turmeric may also help to alleviate gout symptoms, although evidence to prove this is lacking. Get medical advice before taking turmeric.

Properties

Tumeric is a commonly used cooking flavor and is also used to color fabrics. According to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, it contains a plethora of active compounds, including curcumin, which may have anti-inflammatory effects. It may also have anti-cancer effects. It is sometimes used as an alternative medicine for conditions characterized by inflammation and cancer. The University of Maryland Medical Center notes that it may help to alleviate symptoms of gout.

Administration

Turmeric may be taken as a powder or in capsules or tablets. The University of Maryland Medical Center suggests taking 300 mg of a standardized extract of turmeric three times daily to reduce gout-associated inflammation. This is only a guideline -- you may need to adjust the dose according to your age, general health and other medicines you may be taking. Tell your doctor if you take any herbal remedies, because they could interact with other medicines.

Effectiveness

Studies examining the role of turmeric in the treatment of gout are lacking. However, findings from a number of studies show that turmeric may help to alleviate pain and inflammation associated with arthritic conditions. For example, results of a randomized controlled study published in the "Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine" show that curcumin, turmeric's active ingredient, is as helpful as the anti-inflammatory drug ibuprofen in the treatment of osteoarthritis.

Safety Considerations

Turmeric is likely safe for most people, according to RxList, although it may cause nausea or diarrhea. It may reduce your blood's ability to clot, so don't take it if you are scheduled for a surgical procedure within the next few weeks as it may increase the risk of bleeding. Avoid turmeric if you are taking anti-coagulants such as warfarin or aspirin. Don't take turmeric if you have gallbladder disease or during pregnancy or while breast-feeding.

How does it taste like? The taste is not tasty. However I use it with yogurt, I put a spoonful of ground turmeric in a cup of yogurt, mix it and it tastes great. I buy the organic ground turmeric from a spices section of supermarket.

There is also the supplement kind on sale in Vitamin-shops or catalogs, but did not try those yet.
