Superfood Turmeric!

One Little Thing…Turmeric Root, fermented!

I’m not sure why but my son has been playing with the jar of Turmeric spice lately and I wasn’t sure why.

He would roll it around and say, “Look mommy, look at all the cracks.” He was watching the spice tumble in the jar and the way it would break and fall into the jar. The wonder and watchfulness of a 4 year old is something I learn from on a daily basis. What really struck me is that he kept going back to this jar on a nightly basis. Then it hit me…it’s the energy. He’s attracted to the energy that is coming from the seasoning. Now as mom, how do I get that into his body since he is resonating with it?

So what do I do? I call up my mom and let her know what my son is needing. My mother is amazing about recipes and such and starts sending me some different drink recipes and meals of things to start to incorporate this amazing root.

As the search continues for foods to ferment I run across this a recipe on a site about fermentation. Jackpot! So I head over to our local Whole Foods and buy a bunch of the stuff to ferment.

As I am getting drawn back into the original post I find that there is link to another post that outlines more of what turmeric can do for the body and OMG! When I first read the post what stood out to me was the pain relief that the she talked about for herself but as I went on into this post, I started to realize all of the other ways in which this miraculous root can benefit the body. I didn’t think it was going to be a superfood for me but now I’m realizing all that it can do. Here are the different subjects covered in the last post by authoritynutrition.com:

1. Turmeric Contains Bioactive Compounds With Powerful Medicinal Properties
2. Curcumin is a Natural Anti-Inflammatory Compound
3. Turmeric Dramatically Increases The Antioxidant Capacity of The Body
4. Curcumin Boosts Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor, Linked to Improved Brain Function and a Lower Risk of Brain Diseases
5. Curcumin Leads to Various Improvements That Should Lower Your Risk of Heart Disease
6. Turmeric Can Help Prevent (And Perhaps Even Treat) Cancer
7. Curcumin May be Useful in Preventing and Treating Alzheimer’s Disease
8. Arthritis Patients Respond Very Well to Curcumin Supplementation
9. Studies Show That Curcumin Has Incredible Benefits Against Depression
10. Curcumin May Help Delay Aging and Fight Age-Related Chronic Diseases

It’s made it’s way to the top of the list of things to incorporate for a healthy body, mind and spirit!

I invite you to explore the links and purchase your own container to ferment your own turmeric so you can avail yourself to this miraculous root and start to feed your body! That’s what a majority of the symptoms we experience are. They are the bodies signals that you are needing something. So, are you going to listen?

To your health!
