I’m guessing like the rest of us you do too, right?

But I get it.

You’re busy. We’re all guilty of ignoring what’s important for our health and wellbeing in order to complete that little bit of extra work knocking down our door.

It could be that thing your boss asked on her desk yesterday to keeping that promise you made about helping your kid finish their Science project two months ago. Regardless, taking care of yourself has now dropped a notch or two on your Must-Do list this week and you’re pushing it back another week.

For the fifth time.

Why am I being so mean? I promise you I’m not. What I do want to do is get you back on the track of keeping that promise you made with your body and its health easily, quickly, and best of all naturally.

Yoga doesn’t always have to be sooooo long

Many associate yoga with spiritual awakenings, sun tanned beaches, lagoons and most imperatively, excessive leisure time but the truth is, yoga doesn’t just have to be “a nice thing to do when I retire”.

Sometimes, it can even be done in about two minutes flat. Think about that, taking care of yourself for life in two minutes, twice a day? Imagine the possibilities.

This is a good point to introduce you to the wondrous world of Turmeric. The advantages of this spice are so miraculous, it’s no surprise it’s being spearheaded as one of the greatest things to have hit the natural shores.

Turmeric is so beneficial; it has been used for centuries in the Indian subcontinent, especially by Ayurvedic and Yoga experts for thousands of years so you’re going to be hard pressed to find a more stellar resume.

Turmeric is commonly adressed as one of Mother Nature’s miraculous healing cures and has a wide variety of health benefits. Ongoing studies suggest that it may be extremely beneficial in debilitating ailments including, but not limited to, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, diabetes, allergies and more.

Now that I’ve got your attention, here’s how you make this part of your everyday diet …

Used throughout the ages as a potent anti-inflammatory resource by the ancient Indian & Chinese civilisations, Turmeric is also known as an effective treatment for inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, cystic fibrosis, and as a possible preventative resource for childhood inflicted leukaemia.

It is also known to improve liver and cardiovascular functions while lowering cholesterol.

Turmeric is a fine addition to curries, egg and vegetable rice due to its warm, slightly bitter and peppery flavoured taste and recently science has stated that cooking with the spice is when it is at its most beneficial so cook, boil and steam away.

But if you’re not a curry person, don’t worry. We’re still good! Apart from the many Turmeric Chai Lattes you can purchase in most coffee and tea hideouts, Yogi’s will often mix a teaspoon of turmeric in a glass of milk until it boils. Drink this liquid twice a day (add some honey if you can’t tolerate the flavour) and keep arthritis and inflammation away for life. It’s as simple and quick as that!

Because you’re so clearly a Turmeric fan now, here’s one more Bonus Tip just for you. Cut yourself and can’t seem to stop the bleeding? Sprinkle some Turmeric on the open wound and watch the blood stop like magic.

Though you probably can’t wait to go and buy some Turmeric right now, make sure you speak with your medical practitioner before adding Turmeric to your diet as it can interfere with some medications and medical conditions.

Also, find an organic Turmeric (or even better – a Hand pounded Certified Organic version) to get the best nutrients and properties of this incredible spice exactly the way Nature intended – bar all the damaging effects of heat and cold processing.
