Turmeric is one of the world’s most revered spices. Its praises are sung from the rooftops by herbalists. Entire books have been written extolling its magnificent virtues. Revered in the orient for centuries if not millennia, it has even been called “the world’s most healing spice” and hundreds of scientific papers and other reports have been published attesting to its healing benefits for all manner of conditions including cancer, ulcers, arthritis, alzheimers, cystic fibrosis, hemorrhoids, arteriosclerosis, inflammation and liver diseases.

As you might expect, we have some pages focusing on turmeric and here are some of them: – our full page including herbal uses, history, claimed health benefits and scientific reports.
600 Reasons Turmeric May Be The World’s Most Important Herb
Top 10 Anti-Inflammatory Herbs

What’s the best way to use turmeric? Essentially, the way that is typically suggested is to simply incorporate it into the diet – using up to 4 grams per day. The taste is strange and unique – difficult to describe. It is not particularly fiery in the manner of for example cayenne or ginger, and personally I really like it, though it may take some getting used to. The best possible way to eat it – as with so many things – is fresh, raw, organic. I do this and simply chop or grate some very small pieces and sprinkle them on top of salads; or (my favorite) on top of my morning eggs on toast – along with organic avocado, heirloom tomato, olives and raw pumpkin seeds… 🙂

Fresh organic turmeric may prove to be a challenge to find (though worth the effort) and so you could resort to the powdered version (typically found in with all the other spices at the supermarket). It is also possible to obtain turmeric in capsule form, so that you can get it down you in a regulated manner without worrying about the bizarre taste or the fact that the amount of powder for optimum health benefits may be more than that which you might sprinkle on to your recipe otherwise.

Another thing to note about turmeric (powder or whole fresh) – it will stain plates, fingertips and work surfaces a bright saffron-yellow color! This will generally come out after a few washes but it’s not a good look to give guests stained plates – and so you may wish to designate specific kitchen utensils / tableware for your turmeric experiments. 😉 I would also counsel against chopping turmeric directly on a marble countertop!

Ginger-derived nanoparticles attack the roots of inflammatory bowel disease

Monday, August 22nd, 2016

Ginger-derived nanoparticles have exhibited impressive therapeutic effects in mice

Ginger has a long and rich history when it comes to improving our wellbeing. Its medical use can be traced back thousands of years as a natural remedy for things like diarrhea and upset stomachs, but still today the thick, knotted root continues to reveal some hidden talents. Researchers have taken fresh ginger and converted it into a nanoparticle that exhibits real potential to treat these kinds of symptoms in one of their more chronic forms, inflammatory bowel disease, and might even help fight cancer, too.

The discovery was the result of a collaboration between researchers at the Atlanta Veterans Affairs Medical Center and Georgia State University. Based on previous research highlighting the anti-inflammatory properties of the plant, the team set out to further explore the potential for ginger to treat conditions relating to the digestive tract.

The research began with a fresh ginger root purchased at a farmer’s market, which the team ground up in a typical kitchen blender. But the process was a little more complicated from that point, with the team using super-high-speed centrifugation and ultrasonic dispersion to break the ginger apart into tiny particles, each measuring around 230 nanometers across.

These particles were administered orally to lab mice, where they were drawn to the colon and soaked up by cells in the lining of the intestines. This is the region where inflammatory bowel disease occurs, and the researchers observed that the particles reduced both short-term and long-term inflammation, and even prevented cancer that arises as a result.

Furthermore, the researchers found that the ginger-derived nanoparticles, or GDNPs, improved intestinal repair by increasing the survival and spread of cells making up the colon lining. At the same time, they hampered the production of proteins that give rise to inflammation and boosted those that fight it.

The team believes that these therapeutic effects come from the high amounts of fatty molecules, or lipids, in the particles, which are a consequence of the natural lipids found in the ginger plant. One of these lipids is phosphatidic acid, which plays an important role in the construction of cell membranes, but the researchers say that their particles also retain other important ginger compounds called 6-gingerol and 6-shogaol, which have been shown to fight oxidation, inflammation, and cancer.

The particles appeared to be non-toxic in the mice and the researchers say that in humans they may provide a more targeted treatment of the colon than simply delivering ginger as a herb or supplement. This more precise approach means it could be delivered in lower doses and therefore avoid unnecessary or unwanted side effects.

Among the challenges in turning these GDNPs into a drug, Didier Merlin, leader of the research team explains, is the need to pinpoint the precise mechanisms by which they produce these effects.

“To find the natural components that are responsible for the anti-inflammatory effects of GDNPs, this will be an important step to develop GDNPs into a drug,” he tells New Atlas.

The research was published in the journal Biomaterials.

Home Remedies for Psoriasis

Saturday, January 16th, 2016

1…Lay It on Thick


Looking for a way to ditch the itch? A heavy cream can be the answer. Try petroleum jelly or another thick moisturizer. It locks water into your skin to help it heal and reduce the redness.

red pill line

2…Apple Cider Vinegar for Your Scalp >>


It’s more than just a salad dressing. Put some on your head a few times a week — either full strength or mixed with water. It’s a recipe for relief when your scalp calls out “scratch me.”Rinse it off after it dries so you won’t get an irritation. And don’t use this stuff if your scalp is bleeding or cracked. The vinegar will make it feel like it’s burning.

red pill line

3…Get a Little Sun


Spend some time in the great outdoors. The sun’s ultraviolet B rays can help fight your psoriasis.

But don’t overdo it! Stick to 5 or 10 minutes a day and use sunscreen on spots without psoriasis. Too much sun can raise your risk of skin cancer.

red pill line

4…”Season” Your Bath


Want to shed some scales and soothe your skin? Put Dead Sea or Epsom salts into a tub with warm water. Soak for about 15 minutes, and use a moisturizer when you’re done to seal the water in.

red pill line

4…Capsaicin  >>


It’s the ingredient that makes chili peppers hot, and it’s got a place in your bag of tricks.  Researchers say it can cut pain, inflammation, and redness. You’ll find it in over-the-counter creams.

But a note of caution: Some people say it gives them a burning feeling when they put it on their skin.

red pill line



You might know it as the yellow herb that shows up in foods with a curry sauce. Studies show it may cut down your psoriasis flare-ups. You can try it as an ingredient in your meals or as a supplement.

red pill line

6…Tea Tree Oil


It comes from a plant that’s native to Australia, but you don’t have to go that far to get relief. Shampoos made with this oil may help with psoriasis on your scalp, though more research is needed.

red pill line

7…Soak in Oats


It’s a natural way to soothe your skin. Put some ground-up oats in your bath, sit back, and relax. Just make sure the water is warm, not hot, so you don’t irritate your skin.

red pill line

8…Meditation and Yoga


Cut down your stress to shake off your symptoms. Meditation can help you take your psoriasis in stride.

Yoga is especially helpful if you have psoriatic arthritis, because it eases joint pain and increases your range of motion.

red pill line

9…Wrap It Up! >>


Put cream on your skin at bedtime and cover the area with plastic wrap. Then add a layer of tight clothing — like gloves or socks.The idea is to seal the moisturizer in overnight and let your skin absorb it.

red pill line

10…Omega-3 Fatty Acids  >>


They fight inflammation, and you can find them in fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, tuna, and sardines. You can also buy fish oil supplements

But just how much they help with psoriasis isn’t so clear. Studies have mixed results, so get your doctor’s advice.

red pill line

11…Oregon Grape >>


The name’s a little misleading. It’s an evergreen plant, not really a grape. It’s shown some promise in studies.

The plant’s formal name is Mahonia aquifolium. Look for creams in which it’s 10% of the ingredients.

red pill line

12…Mediterranean Diet  >>


This eating plan puts the focus on fish, fruits and veggies, and whole grains. A small study shows it might make your symptoms less severe.

red pill line

13…Aloe Vera  >>

aloe_vera_and_skin_cream_image www.newcures.infp

Studies suggest this plant can improve psoriasis. Get gel or cream with 0.5% aloe vera in it and put it on your skin.

But steer clear of tablets. There’s no evidence that they help.

Healthy 8 Reasons to Add More Cinnamon to the food you eat

Monday, January 19th, 2015


Cinnamon is a popular spice that most of us sometimes add to an apple pie, coffee or hot chocolate. However, there are a few health reasons to use cinnamon more often. I’m not telling you to add it to every meal you eat, but incorporating cinnamon into your diet can help improve your overall health. Plus, it will add a fantastic flavor to your bland meal. While you probably won’t use this spice in your hearty soups, you might want to use it in your desserts and beverages. Cinnamon is plentiful in calcium, fiber, iron, flavanols, manganese, and some potent antioxidants. Read on to discover 8 health reasons to add more cinnamon to your meals.

1. Cinnamon boosts your brain function

It has been proven that smelling cinnamon boosts cognitive processing, however eating it regularly improves your brain function. Cinnamon helps increase memory, focus and attention, and reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s. Consuming a little bit of cinnamon every day helps fight irritability and depression, and prevent headaches. Add a little bit of cinnamon (don’t overdo it!) to your morning coffee or smoothie and reap all its health benefits.

2. It’s good for your heart

When it comes to my heart health, I always try to consume more foods and spices that are good for my heart. I did a small research and found out a study from Penn State that claims that adding spices, such as cinnamon and turmeric, to a diet helps reduce the negative effects of consuming fatty meals. Although it’s better to avoid high-fat foods since they increase your risk of heart disease, adding cinnamon or turmeric to them can be a good solution.

3. It helps lose weight

When combined with a healthy diet and regular workouts, cinnamon can also help you drop weight. The things is, cinnamon helps increase metabolism and regulate blood sugar levels, which plays a crucial role in weight loss. Add a dash of cinnamon to your oatmeal, or yogurt, or any diet-friendly meal to improve your weight loss results. Sure, you won’t see those results instantly, but a little bit goes a long way, you know.

4. It improves your gut health

Cinnamon is good for your gut health as well. It helps prevent indigestion, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, acid reflux, diarrhea, and even chronic pain like arthritis have all shown the potential to be alleviated through cinnamon consumption. Probably you don’t use cinnamon in your soups, but I recommend you to add the spice to your favorite soups, especially a vegetable soup, a lentil soup, and a black bean soup.

5. It helps prevent cancer

Consuming cinnamon helps prevent the growth and spread of cancer cells. Cancer cells take up glucose and ignore metabolic signals, which is why it’s important to control your sugar levels and reestablish a healthy metabolism, if needed. Adding cinnamon to your everyday meals can help you. Add a half teaspoon of cinnamon powder to your oatmeal or glass of milk to enjoy all its cancer fighting properties.

6. It helps control mood swings during PMS

Cinnamon is a good source of manganese that helps control mood swings and prevent cramps during PMS. Moreover, cinnamon contains cinnamaldehyde that helps balance hormones. Consume a little bit of cinnamon with foods that help fight PMS, such as bananas, dark chocolate, nuts, avocado, almond milk, and yogurt, to make those days easier and happier.

7. It’s good for your gum health

Cinnamon is one of the most popular ingredients in most mouthwashes and chewing gums, and it’s no wonder why. The thing is, cinnamon boasts antibacterial properties and it helps protect gums and teeth from damages. It can also improve your breath. I think it’s one of the most undeniable reasons to add more cinnamon to your meals.

8. It’s good for your skin

Due to its antibacterial properties cinnamon helps relieve itching of the skin and skin redness. Cinnamon can also help fight acne. Due to its natural heat production, cinnamon is also good for massages, and it helps relieve muscle and joint pain. Do you need any other reasons to add cinnamon to your eating plan? I think, it’s already a good reason to have a cup of cinnamon tea or coffee right now.

THE ROOT HERB He Shou wu-zhi heshouwu-sheng shouwu-Polygonum multiflorum

Wonder cure Polygonum multiflorum He Shou Wu

There is not much this root herb is not able to achieve in disease cures or treatments

It is widely used in chinese herbal medicine as a tonic to prevent premature aging by tonifying the Kidney and Liver functions.

It also is known to bring up Jing (vital essence), nourishing the blood, and fortifying the muscles, tendons and bones. It strengthens and stabilizes the lower back and knees. He Shou Wu is also used to enhance sexual drive and fertility in men and women. It can increase sperm count in men and help build more semen even in old age. It helps build ova in women as well.

It is also widely used in Asia to maintain the youthful condition and color of the hair. This is, for some reason, its most popular attribute but it does so much more than this! There are countless legends of people that have lived well past the century mark taking this herb.

He Shou Wu (Called “Foti” by some) is the “Prepared” root of Polygonum multiform – a large vining plant. It is prepared by slicing the root shortly after harvesting. He Shou Wu is a tonic to the endocrine glands; it improves health, stamina and resistance to disease. It is used to reduce cholesterol due in part to its lecithin content.

It is used for angina pectoris, bloody stools, hypoglycemia, diabetes, night sweating and has been found to be helpful in schizophrenia.

Polygonum multiflorum He Shou Wu root image

Science treats He Shou Wu with respect
Studies show that He Shou Wu extract improves the cardiovascular system, enhances immune functions, slows the degeneration of glands, increases antioxidant activity, and reduces the accumulation of lipid peroxidation. Such findings suggest that ho-shou-wu is helpful in combating some of the processes that lead to conditions characteristic of old age, thereby also reducing the risk of fatal diseases (e.g., cancer) and incidents (e.g., heart attack, stroke). He Shou Wu was shown to have effects on the antioxidant system superoxide dismutase (SOD), accumulation of lipid peroxidase, and enhancement of cell-mediated immune responses.
KinwaNatura, the New Herbal Generation

Pharmacological studies have shown that prepared He Shou Wu root extract can prolong the life cycle of somatic cells. Laboratory studies have shown that He Shou Wu can promote strong development and prolonged growing cycle in mammalian cells compared to cells in the control group, which demonstrated aging and degeneration.
He Shou Wu’s effect on protecting the liver:
In experiments on mice, prepared He Shou Wu reduces buildup of hepatic (liver) fat. He Shou Wu also lessens the enlargement of the liver caused by carbon tetrachloride poisoning.
He Shou Wu can significantly counter the liver damage in rats caused by peroxidized (spoiled) corn oil. The damage includes fatty liver, liver function damage and elevated levels of peroxidized lipids in the liver.
At a fundamental level in the liver’s cells, in vitro studies have demonstrated He Shou Wu`s ability to inhibit the lipid peroxidation of rat liver microsomes induced by ADP and NADPH.
These studies show that He Shou Wu’s liver protection mechanism relies largely in its ability to inhibit lipid peroxidation (LPO) and its damage to the liver cells.

Herbal Ignite - Cure Erectile Dysfunction

Whether you plan on living to 200 years or you just want to preserve your vital essence and Qi to have the energy of a young person for the rest of your life, He Shou Wu should be tried by anyone. At least for the first 100 years of your life!
During the Tang Dynasty, Lin Daoren wrote the book The Secret Recipes of the Immortals for Treating Wounds and Fractures (Xian Shou Li Shang Xu Duan Mi Fang, 846 A.D.). In that book, he described the processing of He Shou Wu to enhance its tonic properties (processed He Shou wu is sometimes called zhi heshouwu to distinguish it from the unprocessed form, which may be designated sheng shouwu). The processing method is to stew or steam the He Shou wu in black soybean (heidou) juice for several hours (up to three days, depending on the devotion of the processor to this method) and then dry the roots. This is a technique that is still used today.

The black soy bean juice is prepared by boiling black soybeans in water for about 4 hours; the liquid that is left after the cooking is poured off and the beans are cooked again with less water for 3 hours; the resulting extract is combined with the former extract to make the juice. About 10 kg of black beans are used to process 100 kg of ho-shou-wu roots. Black beans are traditionally attributed with the property of supplementing blood and essence, and prolonged cooking or steaming of the herb is associated with enhancing its enriching and warming nature.

The alchemical version of this processing, which is similar to the recommended method for making processed rehmannia, is to repeat the stewing or steaming 9 times. Thus, after preparing with the black soybean (overnight) and drying, it is again prepared with black soybean on the next day, and so on, until nine cycles have been completed.

KinwaNatura, the New Herbal Generation

This repetition of processing was questioned by Chen Shiduo in his book New Compilation of herbs (Qing Dynasty), in which he felt that the repeated processing would destroy the quality of the herb. Today, the single processing is relied upon.

Ginseng can fight cancer fatigue

I don’t know what’s worse — cancer, or the treatments.
Natures Brands Natural Health & Beauty Products

The disease itself is enough to leave you feeling drained. But throw in invasive surgeries, toxic drugs, radiation, and chemo and it’s no wonder cancer patients look and feel like death most of the time.

So OF COURSE they’re fatigued. Can you blame them? But a new study finds ginseng root can help bring a little of that energy back.

The only “catch” is that it takes a few weeks.

Researchers gave 360 patients receiving cancer treatments — including more than 200 breast cancer patients — either 2,000 mg of ground ginseng root or a placebo for eight weeks.

After four weeks, there were no differences between the two groups. After eight, bingo — 90 percent of the women on ginseng reported improvements. On average, the women started out at a 55 on a 100-point fatigue “scale,” but after eight weeks they dropped 20 points to a much more manageable 35.
Natures Brands Natural Health & Beauty Products

Those who got the placebo only had half that improvement.

The women who took the ginseng said they felt less “sluggish,” “tired,” “worn out,” and “pooped” than they did at the start.

The one caveat here is that low-quality ginseng supplements are processed with ethanol, and ethanol can actually stimulate the growth of breast tumors.

Clearly, you don’t want that — so stick to pure ground ginseng root rather than an extract.

By the way, it’s not a bad idea to take this stuff even if you aren’t “sluggish,” “tired,” “worn out,” or “pooped” — because ginseng can inhibit the growth of cancer cells, including cancers of the breast and prostate.

But while ginseng is great it’s not the only drug-free cancer beater. It’s not even the best of the lot — because there are even more effective natural cures that can help you beat the disease without drugs or even chemo

One spice beats pain, helps the brain

Curcumin is a disease-fighting superstar

What is it about when I don’t eat Indian food. It smells like death, and they simmer that stuff all day long — a slow torture that robs meat and vegetables of all their nutrients.

But there’s one secret in their sauce you’ll want to share — because a common Indian spice just so happens to contain one of the world’s most powerful disease-fighting anti-inflammatory compounds: curcumin.

It’s so good it almost sounds like an old snake oil pitch: “It heals your pain! It saves your eyes! It keeps your mind sharp! It can protect your heart! Hurry, hurry, hurry ladies and geee-entlemen, because this miracle cure can even keep the cancer away!”

But what if it’s all true?

Let me start with that pain relief, because I know from your letters and emails how many of you are fighting daily battles with your joints.

Researchers gave 100 osteoarthritis patients either NSAIDs or NSAIDs along with a supplement that had 200 milligrams of curcumin at its heart.

The patients who got only the meds had no improvement… while those who got the curry pills not only had less pain and better mobility, they also managed to slash their NSAID use.

The researchers believe curcumin might even replace the drugs completely for many osteoarthritis patients, according to the new study in Alternative Medicine Review.

But since other studies have found that curcumin by itself can beat other forms of pain, including rheumatoid, I don’t know why anyone would even mess around with NSAIDs in the first place.

So far so good — but that’s only the beginning, because this stuff could also explain why India has such a low rate of Alzheimer’s disease.

One of the hallmarks of the condition is the formation of amyloid beta plaques in the brain, but one study found that curcumin is like a plaque-seeking missile — hunting the plaques, binding to them… and stopping them cold.

I’m running out of room here, but I’m not done — because other recent studies have found that curcumin may prevent cataracts, fight tumors, aid stroke recovery and even lower your risk of obesity (let’s not get too carried away with that last one — all the turmeric in Asia won’t save your belly from a carb-loaded lifestyle).

Usually, I’d say get your nutrition from food. But since I don’t like curcumin on my steak and eggs — blech! — I get mine from supplement.

You do the same, and you’ll even avoid that curry stink.
