5 Herbs for Healing: Turmeric

Up next of our 5 Herbs for Healing series is all about turmeric! This ancient root is hardly new to us here in the west. For a long while now we have become more and more awakened to the powerful healing nature of turmeric. In fact, I might go so far as to say that we can attribute a lot of what we are rediscovering here in the west to ancient health remedies and teachings coming back into focus in today's wellness trends.

5 Herbs for Healing: Turmeric
The turmeric we know and love is generally made by heating the root and cooking with black pepper to make it more readily digestible. It is then ground into the fine yellow powder we are all familiar with. In Ayurveda, we believe that turmeric is better cooked and ground in this way because it makes it component curcuminoids more easily digested for the body to absorb.

What’s so good about turmeric?

🌾 Works against acidity in the body.

🌾 Anti-inflammatory.

🌾 Antibacterial, both externally and internally.

🌾 Very good for diabetes.

🌾 Excellent for postpartum mums as it purifies the uterus.

🌾 Blood purifier.

🌾 Skin cleanser.

 

 


 

Cough: Take equal parts of powdered turmeric, fenugreek and ginger powder and mix with a little raw honey to make a paste. Take 1 teaspoon every morning and evening until the cough subsides.

Cleaning of uterus post-delivery: Fry equal parts turmeric and fenugreek powder in ghee, add sweetener to taste (raw honey, pure maple or rice malt syrup) and make into a paste. Take 1 teaspoon morning and evening for 90 days.

Bandaid/wound healing: Mix turmeric in a little filtered water or milk of choice to form a paste. Spread over the wound. Make sure you keep the area dry and make sure you keep any clothing away from the area so it won’t stain your clothing! This will seal any wound and stop bleeding immediately. Is also highly disinfectant and will counteract pus and infections.

Face cleanser: Mix chickpea flour, milk of choice, (plant-based or other), and turmeric powder to make a paste. Apply to your face, rubbing gently in a circular manner to remove all the dirt and grime from your skin. Rinse clean and moisturise with your regular moisturiser. Make sure you don’t go out into direct sunlight straight after using or else you might go a bit yellow!
