Turmeric – for Leaky Gut, the Liver, Spiritual Protection and Prosperity

Turmeric – for Leaky Gut, the Liver, Spiritual Protection and Prosperity

turmeric healing spiceI know, it sounds terrible, leaky gut, and it is. So impolite to talk about, but if it’s going on, you want to take care of it. Leaky gut means you’re being poisoned from the inside out. Lucky for you, turmeric, that extremely colorful spice that’s used to flavor rices, curries, and more is great for the gut. It is a strong astringent which contracts the proteins in the bowel lining, thus squeezing shut the spaces between the cells and reducing gut permeability. It’s also anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial.

And it tastes great! I love it on hashbrowns, along with paprika, garlic, onion, oregano, rosemary, celery seed, salt, pepper, hot pepper…… I love seasonings. No more boring food.

Listen to your body’s cravings, to your mind’s wanderings. When you suddenly think of a food that you want to eat, out of the blue, for no apparent reason, it can be your guides’ way of recommending exactly what you need. Smell it, see it on tv, think of it… Act on it!

Turmeric is a member of the ginger family, growing as a root and looking quite like ginger.

Turmeric is wonderful for the liver, helping to cleanse and strengthen it. Turmeric helps to balance the female reproductive and lactation systems, and in men it purifies and improves the health of semen.

Spiritually, it is believed to ward off evil and grant to the wearer healing and protection. People of ancient India believed that turmeric contained the energy of the Divine Mother, helped to grant prosperity, cleanse the chakras (energy centers in the body), and purify the channels of the subtle body.
