Remedies from your spice rack
Do you rush to a doctor to treat your common cold or your child's colicky pain?

Common ailments have always been treated by home remedies from the spice rack by our grandmas. While we rely more and more on

medicines for cure, it's time we turned our focus to these natural remedies that are safe from toxins.

Some spices and herbs may not agree with your system or may conflict with prescribed medicines. It is, therefore, always safe to

check with a doctor before treating yourself with home remedies.

Let's start with turmeric. Turmeric is thought to have many medicinal properties. In India, many people use it as a readily available

antiseptic for cuts, burns and bruises.

It is currently being investigated for possible benefits in Alzheimer`s disease, cancer and liver disorders. It helps in breaking up

existing plaques.

Turmeric is currently used in the formulation of some sunscreens. Turmeric paste is used by some Indian women to keep them free of

superfluous hair. It is also used as an ant-repellent.

Here are some authentic turmeric recipes:
