Who would have thought mowing a lawn could result in the launch of a website. A few weeks ago, I mowed my whole lawn after a long hiatus, and ended up with sore
body. I was expecting a week of body aches and pains, when I remembered the advice of one of our honorable senior community member, who is a surgeon, that
turmeric is a very effective remedy for lower back and muscular pain. I took 1/2 of a teaspoon in a warm glass of milk before going to bed, and woke up the next day
without any soreness.
This wonderful experience gave me courage to work more, so twice a day
turmeric became my routine. The results were excellent. Getting up in
the morning was not a struggle anymore, and my energy level remained
high the whole day. I started to look for research on turmeric, and
found a large number of papers in scientific journals. Because of my
personal experience and the research I studied, I recommended this to
many of my extended family members as well as my patients, with positive response.
I have selected some articles and abstracts, so the reader can gather knowledge about the research on this God given gift, and use it for the benefit of mankind.
