The Power of Turmeric

THE POWER OF TURMERIC: A few days ago I woke up to find a marble size absces on my right lower chin. My initial reaction was to go see a doctor.He would have probably prescribed an antibiotic for three days along with anti inflammatory & antacid tablets. That would have made the absces disappear but also considerably disturbed my digestive system.
Instead I decided to turn to an age old Hindu practice of applying turmeric.Turmeric is said to possess anti septic anti inflammatory as well as curative properties. Applied turmeric paste for two nights consecutively and the abscess has considerably reduced in size.Probably should disappear completely by tomorrow.
Turmeric has been used successfully by Hindu practitioners ever since the Vedic period and now being rediscovered all over again by western scientists. They have been even trying to patent this. Anyway I saved around Rs.500/- by not going to a doctor ! Did I do the right thing ?

  1. Good to hear that! I do not have enough knowledge about any medicines, but I see that powder turmeric are sold at supermarkets and pharmacies here in Japan. I think they have to be household medicines in case abnormal symptoms in physical health? You did right thing!

  11. O yes, you did the perfect thing! My mother always advises me to inculcate turmeric too -- in several innovative ways... like warm milk to keep sore throat and other infections away. Turmeric is a timeless medicine with great healing powers proved since ages.

  12. Yes Arti whenever I have an infected throat I do two things: Frequently gargle with warm salt water and drink hot milk mixed with turmeric at night. In 2-3 days my throat would be fine.
