Nature's Golden Warrior for Depression and More

Nature's Golden Warrior for Depression and More  



A telling quote which is circulating in the world of natural health and herbalism states,  


I’ve got 99 problems, but turmeric solved like 86 of them.’  


And with a reported 28 million Americans ingesting antidepressants on a daily basis, it is likely that the long list of side effects which often go hand-in-hand with this drug may be amongst these problems. Side effects which may include everything from agitation and anxiety to dry mouth and diarrhea, to skin rashes and insomnia—and everything in between.


As more and more of us open our eyes to the industry of legalized drug pushing and the damage it can do to our body, mind and spirit, we are in turn seeking alternative, all-natural herbal support without the harsh side-effects. Referred to as ‘Nature’s Golden Warrior’ and ‘The Most Powerful Herb In The World’, turmeric root is one of these herbs which may offer tremendous support.


What is Turmeric Root?

Tumeric root is a richly colored orange-golden herb classified as part of the ginger family and has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for over 5000 years. It’s active compound curcumin is a polyphenol plant compound that has strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties offering enormous health benefits for both the body and the mind.


Turmeric Root and Depression

Turmeric root and its active compound curcumin is gaining exemplary recognition in its ability to help alleviate symptoms of depression. While it has been reported that turmeric root may increase serotonin and norepinephrine levels, Dr Aviva Romm, an MD, midwife and herbalist has discoveredin in her research that neuro-transmitter deficiency is not as much of a factor as originally thought. Instead, studies are demonstrating that a primary cause of depression is neuroinflammation, otherwise known as ‘brain-flammation’.  


This is BIG NEWS for those of us who struggle with depression—which most of us do at some point in our lives—and want to address not only the symptoms, but the root cause. With its potent anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric root is a vitally important herb which supports the body’s ability to heal inflammation in the brain, nervous system and throughout the entire body.


But not only does turmeric root offer support for depression and the associated symptoms that come with this condition, which may include anxiety and fatigue, it supports additional chronic health conditions as well.


Other Health Conditions Supported By Turmeric Root

More and more of us are making health a priority due to high toxicity and environmental pathogenic overload found all around us. We are focusing on keeping the body cleansed and clear so it is fully supported in the healing process. This in turn helps reduce the risk of more serious diseases and health conditions. Turmeric root and its active compound curcumin, helps to do that.


Stroke and Heart Attack: Studies have demonstrated that turmeric and its active ingredient curcumin have blood-thinning and anticoagulant properties. As a result, this helps to reduce the risk of blood clots from forming which can lead to TIA strokes (otherwise known as 'mini-strokes'), full-blown strokes and heart attacks.

Rheumatoid Arthritis: With its strong anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric root has been shown to help with a long list of conditions caused by chronic inflammation. Specifically, conditions which end with “itis”, such as rheumatoid arthritis. In this case, turmeric root helps to reduce inflammation which leads to the swelling and eroding of joints and tissue.

Cancer: Research has shown that turmeric root may have anti-cancer properties with the potential to reduce cancer cells from growing. The greatest effect demonstrated in studies has been on breast, bowel, stomach, skin and pancreatic cancer. Given cancer has been linked to chronic inflammation, this is just one more reason why turmeric root is a must-have to support a healthy body.


Common Ways To Consume Turmeric Root

Tea: Turmeric root can be sliced and added to boiling water which is then brought down to a simmer to make tea. For additonal effect and flavor, turmeric tea can also be made with additional ingredients such as ginger, lemon and honey.

Golden Milk: Turmeric root powder can be added to warm milk, including almond milk or oat milk, to make a soothing and healthy anti-inflammatory drink. Additional ingredients may be added including cinnamon, ginger, black pepper and cardamom.

Smoothies: Turmeric root powder can be added to a smoothie, or whole root can be put through a juicing machine with the juice then added to a juice drink mix or herbal shot. An immune-boosting morning smoothie may include berries, greens, turmeric and ginger.

Dishes and Desserts: The most common spice in curry dishes, turmeric spice can also be added to soups, rice dishes, casseroles, chilli and sauces. It may also be added to granola and breakfast bars, and even desserts such as orange zest cake, cinnamon rolls and homemade popsicles!

Capsules and Supplements: For those who do not like the taste of turmeric, or prefer a supplemental form, turmeric root extract can be taken in a capsule or as an all-in-one supplement that has additional supporting herbs and vitamins. This option provides anti-inflammatory support for the body that is quick, easy and convenient.
