Turmeric As Effective As 14 Drugs, Now Confirmed by Science

By Madalina Petrusel
Nutritional Therapist, SAM Daily Times

Smiles all around on the faces of Natural Therapists As science has now proven that Turmeric is just as effective and in some cases more ,that 14 very commonly used drugs .

The Good news is Unlike these drugs , Turmeric does not have adverse reactions , does not come with the side effects , and does not put pressure on your liver, kidneys and other organs specific to the drugs . Many people build up tolerances to drugs , especially painkillers , building up tolerance to natural compounds such as turmeric is very rare , therefore Turmeric is most lightly to not only he healthier for your body but be effective for much longer than synthetically manufactured drugs .

Turmeric is a potent root from the gingers family , yellow aromatic powder can be obtained from the rhizome of a plant for convenience of use . Used for flavouring and colouring in Asian cookery and formerly . It has been found that in the popular areas where turmeric is used the number of people that get terminal illnesses such as cancer and many inflammatory diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis , Goat and many more is in the least 80% less than In the Uk , USA and other pharmaceutically dominant societies .

Although this is an interesting fact to consider i am not saying that turmeric is responsible for this alone . From a logical point of view , Drugs = Toxins in the body .What science states as fact , Toxics are directly and indirectly the main sources of deceases depending on the decease but the all originate from this imbalance of toxins and acidity in the body . Surely this makes more sense of why we are more suceptible to decease ! Not to mention we are eating foods that are depleting our bodies rather than providing us with the nutrients we require to flush out toxins and build healthy stable cells ,flora ( good bacteria) and immunity .     

"LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE " -Hippocrates, Father of Medicine .

Not just because its cheeper , but some would take a basic point of view and consider that we are human . Humans wether we see it or not these says or not are still part of nature . Whatever beliefs or gods you resonate with all teachings can agree that man is part of nature . So if man is part of nature surely that is where his cures , food , medicine lie ? . I haven t yet come across many …or any Health professionals for that matter that disagree with this statement . Sure , I agree in extreeme circumstances where real fast help is needed modern medicine is a blessing . But using it as an everyday plan or as an escape from pain that inevitably we are going to bump into in life It can be unnecessary ,and not to mention extremely taxing on the body! Easy natural not to mention stable in the body herbs and roots plants and even vegetables can be found to substitute and many times do what drugs just can't . Here are the 14 drugs Turmeric could happily replace , and just for fun I have also added some lovely side effects . Most of you will not need to read them all to get the Big picture .

1. Lipitor/Atorvastatin(cholesterol medication)

"Lipitor (atorvastatin) belongs to a class of drugs referred to as statins. Lipitor is used for the treatment of elevated total cholesterol, LDL, triglycerides, and to elevate HDL cholesterol. Side effects of Lipitor include constipation, diarrhea, fatigue, gas, heartburn, headache, myalgia, and rhabdomyolysis….
  • Unexplained muscle pain, tenderness, or weakness;
  • Fever, unusual tiredness, and dark colored urine;
  • Swelling, weight gain, urinating less than usual or not at all; or
  • Nausea, upper stomach pain, itching, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes)..'

2. Corticosteroids (steroid medications)

• stomach irritation, such as indigestion, rapid heartbeat (tachycardia) , nausea ,insomnia , a metallic taste in the mouth.

3. Prozac/Fluoxetine & Imipramine (antidepressants)

dysthymia, anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, eating disorders, chronic pain, neuropathic pain and, in some cases,dysmenorrhoea, snoring, migraines, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), substance abuse and sleep disorders.

4. Aspirin (blood thinner)

  • Upset stomach and heartburn may occur. If either of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

  • Urine, persistent or severe nausea/vomiting, unexplained tiredness, dizziness, dark urine, yellowing eyes/skin.

  • Stomach/abdominal pain, vomit that looks like coffee grounds, slurred speech, weakness on one side of the body, sudden vision changes or severe headache.

  • A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, seek immediate medical attention if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.

5. Oxaliplatin (chemotherapy drug)

Peripheral neuropathy - Numbness and tingling and cramping of the hands or feet often triggered by cold. This symptom will generally lessen or go away between treatments, however as the number of treatments increase the numbness and tingling will take longer to lessen or go away. Your health care professional will monitor this symptom with you and adjust your dose accordingly.
Nausea and vomiting
Mouth sores
Low blood counts - Your white and red blood cells and platelets may temporarily decrease. This can put you at increased risk for infection, anemia and/or bleeding.
Loss of appetite

I would list the side effect of the rest of these drugs but I am pretty sure you wold have all gotten a good idea and probably switched off by this point .In Addition the symptoms are pretty similar and easy to find if you google the drug.

6. Metformin ,(diabetes drug)

Anti-inflammatory Drugs aspirin, ibuprofen, sulindac, phenylbutazone, naproxen, indomethacin, diclofenac, dexamethasone, celecoxib, and tamoxifen

Im sure many of you might be wondering what are these symptoms a sigh of internally and what is producing this side effects inside ? I am more than happy to discuss the pathology on how these things are effecting the body specifically , I am considering writing a few papers on these if you would be interested please put a request in or or any other things you would like to see a paper on .

Though you might think that these side effects are not so bad , not me personally but some of you might , I would like you to consider that symptoms are always a side effect of an internal pathology , these symptoms are predicted by the damage done to specific organs and they are given as to of what the symptom of the organ is. The consideration of wether or not you get the symptoms AKA the damage is calculated on the strength of your organs .Even the strongest of kidneys on long term medications life these they would not get the chances to recover , unavoidably sure but surely years down the lie it is the same fatal store. Now lets consider todays poor nutrition , bad habits and hereditary , the damage is unavoidable unless you are very clue up about your health .Changes are if you are reading this you are taking a step into the right direction ! Perhaps not all the herbs and remedies we have on a natural scale are proven by science just yet , but like Turmeric a lot of them are and increasingly being more and more studied every day , So if you could use a Healthy alternative that is kind to your Kidneys why wouldn't you ?

On a Humarous note a song was released in June 2002 by a well known Singer that goes by the name of P!nk the lyrics quote " Just like a pill , instead of making me better you keep making me ill " I found that quite amusing . If like me you are finding this Ironic and you would like to know more and get more clued up about heath , There is a well constructed Documentery/ Film you can watch online for free now Called Food matters i will post the link below.This Documentary is more than a great start.

If you Find of my Information does not resonate with you It is a free world , investigate it yourself and then feel free to address the issue with me , I am more than happy to converse and expand ideas with those who wish to learn.
