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
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 ?
