Spices can reduce inflammation

Posted by Melanie Hohman on

Spices can reduce inflammation for some with autoimmune disorders.  For our son Bradley (who has severe food allergies and asthma) we use a small amount of Turmeric, Cinnamon and Ginger in his meals.  Be sure to talk to your doctor before using.

Per webmd.com:

"Turmeric is a plant. You probably know turmeric as the main spice in curry. It has a warm, bitter taste and is frequently used to flavor or color curry powders, mustards, butters, and cheeses. But the root of turmeric is also used widely to make medicine.  It is used for arthritisheartburn (dyspepsia), stomach paindiarrhea, intestinal gas, stomachbloating, loss of appetite, jaundiceliver problems and gallbladder disorders. It is also used for headachesbronchitis, colds, lung infections, fibromyalgialeprosy, fever, menstrual problems, and cancer. Other uses include depressionAlzheimer’s disease, water retention, worms, and kidney problems.
Some people apply turmeric to the skin for pain, ringworm, bruising, leech bites, eyeinfections, inflammatory skin conditions, soreness inside of the mouth, and infected wounds."

"Ginger is an herb. The rhizome (underground stem) is used as a spice and also as a medicine. It can be used fresh, dried and powdered, or as a juice or oil. Ginger is commonly used to treat various types of “stomach problems,” including motion sickness, morning sicknesscolic, upset stomach, gas, diarrheanauseacaused by cancer treatment, nausea and vomiting after surgery, as well as loss of appetite. Other uses include pain relief from arthritis or muscle soreness, menstrual pain, upper respiratory tract infections, cough, and bronchitis. Ginger is also sometimes used forchest pain, low back pain, and stomach pain."
