4 Super-Healers in Your Kitchen

Health conscious people might be spending more time in their kitchens for reasons beyond cooking. Believe it or not, your kitchen can give you ready access to many herbs and spices that come with lots of healing properties. If you find alternative healing interesting, you should check out the following list.

1. Turmeric

If you love curry, then good health isn’t far away! After all, one of its ingredients – turmeric – is rich in curcumin, an anti-inflammatory agent. The John Hopkins University School of Medicine conducted a small clinical trial, and the results were rather inspiring. They found that curcumin combined with a small amount of quercetin can shrink colon polyps. Another 2006 study published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease stated the efficacy of curcumin in clearing the brain of the plaques associated with this disease.


2. Ginger

An age-old remedy, ginger possesses powerful healing properties. An NCBI article titled The Amazing and Mighty Ginger talks about scientific evidence of ginger’s health benefits. Research shows that ginger blocks the effects of serotonin to prevent stomach upset from sources like motion sickness, chemotherapy, and pregnancy. It may lower blood pressure and help to deal with arthritis.


3. Garlic

Garlic has been used for its therapeutic properties for centuries. According to a research review in American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, high garlic consumption is related to the reduced risk of colorectal, ovarian, and other cancers. Studies show that garlic contains over 70 active phytochemicals that decrease high blood pressure.


4. Honey

Honey comes packed with several wonderful ingredients that make it a dependable natural healing agent. It is rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, phenolics, and Vitamins C and E.
