The healing powers of turmeric are impressive. Many studies have already demonstrated how the spice can help fight fatty liver disease, weight loss and even cancer.

In many cases, turmeric can help heal diseases better than pharmaceutical drugs, such as prozac.

A report in the journal Health Services Research found that doctors and nurses are increasingly likely to try alternative or complementary medicines themselves (1).


“I use a lot of turmeric in my practice,” says Dr. Minerva Santos, director of integrative medicine at Northern Westchester Hospital in New York. “It’s an amazing spice (2).”

Ibuprofen Is Toxic To Your Heart

A published Lancet review showed that ibuprofen was found to be as toxic to the heart as the banned anti-inflammatory drug Vioxx.

As reported by Reuters,

“Long-term high-dose use of painkillers such as ibuprofen or diclofenac is ‘equally hazardous’ in terms of heart attack risk as use of the drug Vioxx, which was withdrawn due to its potential dangers, researchers said.”
