Adding Turmeric to our everyday spices as a liver tonic
(01 Nov 2007) Turmeric. That wonderful Indian spice. I finally bought 1/2 kilogram from the Indian grocery Assad for only 85 pesos. They say just 1/4 teaspoon of Turmeric a day perks up your liver.
Most Filipinos don't like this "Indiany" taste. But for me, if it makes one healthy, I like it. And besides, turmeric makes our regular coconut milk / gata based meals... taste different. Add this to red hot chili peppers and you've got an Indiany taste.
The Filipino word for turmeric is "luyang dilaw" or in english it is called yellow ginger.
I suggest you do a quick search on Google.com for the words "turmeric eczema" and you come up with very revealing articles that show that turmeric works on your liver, your digestion, and the liver and digestion are important factors in healing eczema. I bet your drug based doctor doesn't know any of this.
