I’m seeing lots of claims from the medical community about turmeric, the main spice in curry. For example, Dr. Josh Axe, DNM, DC, CNS says: “arguably the most powerful herb on the planet at fighting and potentially reversing disease. It has so many healing properties that currently there have been 6,235 peer-reviewed articles published proving the benefits of turmeric and one of its renowned healing compounds curcumin.”
“Of the 6000+ studies referencing curcumin, the most interesting finding is that when turmeric is compared to conventional medicine its benefits equal that of many pharmaceutical medications.”
“In fact, a number of studies have even reported that using curcumin is more advantageous than certain prescription drugs.”

I’ll bet you know someone who’s taking one or more of these drugs …prescribed by their MD. Wouldn’t they be interested in learning about a low cost, safe alternative? Of course they would need to consult their MD. Who knows, maybe their doctor knows something about the curcumin research, or would be willing check it out. It could be a game changer for their health …according to highly respected health experts.
