Turmeric, the Therapeutic

Turmeric is a herb indispensable in hindu traditions and rituals. In the southern parts of india housewives exchange the rootstock on festive occasions. It is an important ingredient in indian cuisine and cosmetics.

As several parts of india are tropical or sub-tropical, there is a constant invasion of germs, virus, bacteria and fungi. This results in high rates of bio-degradability. It is here that turmeric comes into its own. Mere sprinkling of turmeric dish-as is being done by indian housewives and cooks-provides protection against innumerable tropical germs.

Turmeric is an ideal disinfectant and scouring, agent. It acts as an internal antiseptic. It cools down the digestive, circulatory and reproductive systems, arrests cholesterol problems and eliminates toxins.
