Behind The Asana: Episode 35 - Feminine Radiance (Part 5 - Turmeric Root)

Turmeric Root

The turmeric root has been used for thousands of years in the Ancient East. It is a big element of Ayurveda lifestyle and diet.

The benefits are multiple and turmeric can be used on many different parts of the body, in many different ways. It does aid the moon cycle a lot in balancing the hormones but also has a direct healing effect on the body. It is great applied topically to heal cuts and wounds. On a hormonal level, it balances estrogen and therefore is great to soothe endometriosis. The curcumin, primary active ingredient of the turmeric, stops the proliferation of the cells, which helps to cause cell death and then soothe and heal. It is also a great anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial and helps in the relief of polycystic syndrome. It will also help the liver release excess toxins.

The best way to use turmeric is with a healthy fat. We would recommend coconut oil or avocado to mix with turmeric when used in the preparation of a meal. Also a good tip, black pepper increases turmeric's absorption rate to 154%! To ensure that you prepare your cells and open them to the medicine of turmeric, sprinkle a little bit of black pepper in your meal or turmeric ginger tea. It will increase the efficiency of the benefits!

Bringing this beautiful and powerful knowledge to our world's daily rituals will help us achieve a deeper state of health and vitality!
