Turmeric is the Indian spice that has the world's scientists and researchers on fire because of its medicinal properties that prevent cancer causing substances. You will find numerous studies on the beneficial ability of turmeric and its compound curcumin on the large medical database, PubMed.org. And the National Cancer Institute has curcumin under clinical investigation.

 

Dr Michael Greger, NutritionFacts.org  peels back the layers of a study done in 1987 on the DNA mutating ability of several toxins which found that curcurmin was "an effective antimutagenic against several environmental and standard cancer-causing substances:. Studies were done with human smokers.

 

Health Tip: Add turmeric to your meals by grating 1/4 tsp onto your ingredients. You can also add turmeric to your smoothies,  juices, and teas. Just a tiny amount each day will add zip and nutritional benefits for your good health.

 

Watch the video and read this highly informative article which affects your health on the "Carcinogen Blocking Effects of Turmeric" from Dr. Michael Greger.

Natural Cures for Sinus Infection Includes Use of Turmeric ("try a natural remedy; check the mix")

Natural Cures for Sinus Infection Includes Use of Turmeric ("try a natural remedy; check the mix") | Fitness, Health, Running and Weight loss | Scoop.it
There are a number of natural cures for sinus infection, with turmeric being one of them.

While there is a lack of research focusing on turmeric’s ability to treat sinus infection, this doesn’t stop individuals around the world from utilizing turmeric for sinus infection relief. The active ingredient in turmeric, known as curcumin, helps to heal the sinus cavity and clear the airways. Since sinus infections are caused by nasal inflammation, and turmeric possesses anti-inflammatory properties, the spice can be an effective solution for sinus infection.

If you’re able to find turmeric root at a local health food store, purchase it. Try mixing about 2, 2″ pieces of turmeric root with 1 lemon, 1 tablespoon of honey, cayenne pepper, and water to create a turmeric smoothie. You may also add banana for extra flavor. Many individuals see complete improvement within 3 days of drinking the smoothie, even if the sinus infection has been present for weeks at a time.

In addition to being one of many natural cures for sinus infection, turmeric can have a profound positive effect on your health. Turmeric uses are vast, with the spice being able to detoxify the liver and even fight cancer. In fact, turmeric has been shown to have anticancer properties many times, showing how incredible the spice can really be.

Dates (my fav) are by far one of the best sweeteners to use in recipes and to consume as a sweet treat. Dr Michael Greger, NutritionFacts.org  puts dates in the #1 spot for healthy sweetness.

 

Dates are loaded with nutrients and make any dessert recipe a stand out winner. You only need a few to get that mouthwatering luscious sweet taste.

 

Health tip: use dates in place of other not so healthy sweeteners. Did you know you can soak dates and puree them to keep them handy in a glass jar in your fridge for a week or two?

Preventing Macular Degeneration, Vision Loss with Spinach ("popeye's 1 eye must be 20-20 with spinach")

Preventing Macular Degeneration, Vision Loss with Spinach ("popeye's 1 eye must be 20-20 with spinach") | Fitness, Health, Running and Weight loss | Scoop.it
Scientists are suggesting that eating spinach could protect your eyes from the changes that cause macular degeneration, thereby preventing the disease.

As the population ages, the prevalence of this disorder is going to grow and with that, treatment and prevention methods need to keep pace. In an effort to stay ahead of the curve, scientists are suggesting that including spinach in your diet could protect your eyes from the changes that cause macular degeneration.

The disorder is caused by a “progressive deterioration of a region that nourishes the retina, known as the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE).” This deterioration causes the retina itself to deteriorate and leads to difficulty focuses and, in the worst cases, blindness. Keeping the RPE healthy, therefore, can reduce the risk of macular degeneration. This is where spinach comes in.

Spinach contains lutein – a compound that combines with zeaxanthin within the body to create a  macular pigment—an oily, yellow substance that coats the retina. This pigment nourishes the retina and prevents deterioration common in macular degeneration.

Lutein also protects the eyes from free radical damage by helping filter out damaging blue light and ultraviolet light.

Spinach contains plentiful antioxidants and the ingredients needed to create macular pigment. Research is underway to draw causation between foods rich in these pigments and reduced risk. While connections have been made, actual causation has yet to be verified.

Who doesn't love to snack on nuts? Nuts are crunchy protein packed food that are all high in fiber and magnesium which help control blood glucose. And magnesium also relaxes muscles. Nuts are one of the best sources of healthy fats that promote better cardiovascular health. Did you know that you can boost your brain's level of serotonin by eating complex carbs such as nuts and other real while foods such as beans, seeds, veggies and fruits, and oatmeal?  These foods raise your brain levels of the amino acid tryptophan which your body converts to serotonin, the feel good neurotransmitter. And studies show that people who eat a handful of nuts a day tend to weigh less than people who don't.

 

Health Tip: Carry nuts with you when you're out and about as they fill you up and provide healthy nutrients that you're body recognizes and can utilize for your better health.
