Tulsi Holy Basil: The “Queen of Herbs” in Ayurdic, TCM and Homeopathy

Heads up!  Since this book will be available free of charge for three days beginning – Friday, February 28, 2014, I would really appreciate feedback!  Naturally, please do post on line at Amazon what you liked.  I would be grateful for privately receiving honest advise.

This book was written for anyone facing a cancer diagnosis – “cut, poison and burn” are NOT the only choices!

After refusing “the only methods of treating cancer” – (and keeping this story short) I don’t understand why herbal remedies –  that have been used for thousands of years in the east – are not considered effective in North America.

With this eBook, the intention is with educating, informing, and alive to tell you – this herb works!

Turmeric Benefits


Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric is a widely used spice throughout the world and is a great source of many health and beauty benefits. It is native to the Indian subcontinent and has been used in Ayurvedic medicine as far back as 3000 BC. . Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a rhizomatous herbaceous perennial spice plant, related to ginger. It has a mixed taste and light scent of orange and ginger Turmeric looks like ginger but is distinguished by its bright yellow-orange color.

General Use:

In addition to turmeric’s many medicinal health benefits , it is use in cuisine is extensive as an ingredient in the curry spice. In addition, turmeric is used commercially as a dye and as a preservative in food. Another very popular use that provides many benefits is in beauty routines and is known as a main ingredient in many beauty products.

Curcuminoids, the main chemical compound in turmeric, has historically been used in Ayurvedic medicine as an effective protectant against several toxins in the liver. Curcuminoids are turmeric’s primary bioactive components including: Curcumin; demethoxycurcumin, and bis demethoxyxurxumin. Turmerone, Atlantone, and Zinzinberenwe are extracted from turmeric and form strong volatile oil with powerful antioxidant benefits and use. When turmeric is used as food additive then it is called as E-100.

Uses in Beauty Treatments:

Turmeric is widely used in Indian subcontinent and many beauty products are found to contain turmeric as the main ingredient. Turmeric is also called “Haldi” or “Holud” in Indian subcontinent.
Turmeric is associated with a long list of skincare and other benefits including, but not limited to: acne, dry or oily skin, removal of dark circles, wrinkles and facial hair, sunburn, skin pigmentation, cracked hill (heals), hair problems such as hair dye, loss of hair etc. – all of which are common in men and women.
Against Skin problems:

• Antibiotic and antiseptic components work against acne. Acne scars and inflammation runs away using turmeric face pack.

• Facial mask with turmeric is always found in beauty parlors of India and non-Indian famous parlors. Turmeric keeps balance of water and oil entering the inter-lairs of skin. Thus a user can have non-oily or non-dry skin.

• Wrinkles, dark spots and fine lines due to aging are easily eliminated or greatly reduced using turmeric topically.

• Cracked heels can be unsighly. Turmeric works as a healing agent by combining a few drops of coconut oil and powder of turmeric and rubbing this mixture into heels – producing “hills” as soft as Youngers’ hills.

Turmeric is not only used in beauty treatments but also used as health supplements. Turmeric is referred to as “Holy powder” in India. This shows the needs of turmeric in medical treatments. This spice is mostly used in Ayurveda, Herbal, Allopathic etc. types of medical treatments.

• Turmeric purifies the bloodstream.
• Turmeric and recipes of turmeric keep the fat far from the body. This means a man doesn’t need to visit a dietitian or physician to loss the weight.

The benefits of turmeric can’t be illustrated in just an article. Users and food lovers will always love to keep turmeric as a medical component in their foods or supplements.
As with other medicinal herbs with a long history of efficacy in “alternative” medicine – and proven to be used as far back as the BC era, conventional medicine today are taught their use is not proven effective nor are they approved by the FDA.

Although this blog is a short introduction to the many beneficial uses of Turmeric, an eBook has been released on Amazon-Kindle.
Turmeric is one of the first “vitamins” I was introduced to by directly contacting India, after refusing conventional cancer treatment offered in Canada. Although liver cancer is said to be a death sentence, my gut told me “not if I can escape this archaic treatment of killing immunity” and literally ran!

Do find our eBook on Amazon as it contains way more information than this blog.

A Cancer Cure? The Amazing Health and Beauty Benefits of Turmeric

Tulsi Holy Basil “The Queen of Herbs”


Tulsi Holy Basil Ebook Cover

The above book is now available at Amazon Kindle!

Tulsi Holy Basil has been used in Ayurveda, one of the oldest systems of medicine, for as far back as 1500 BC.

The most recent discovery with this herb (besides curing almost all diseases in existence) is that it is found to be able to cleanse water of fluoride!  Research scientists at Rajasthan University have discovered that Tylsi can replace some more expensive alternatives to fluoride removal!  With the recent admittance by Harvard University that fluoride is bad for health, the news of Tulsi’s latest ability is most welcome.

This book offers a plethora of information and the authors have written it for those presently unaware of just how beneficial this herb is to our health

Genetically Modified Foods

let me

I came across an excellent article in the Times of India while researching Ayurvedic medicine. The article was written in Sept. 2013 by Shuvendu Sen.  Talk about “profound”!  I must applaud this author’s penmanship.  It is very hard to step outside the box and disagree which certainly risks prosecution to some extent if not a great extent!

I quote:

“I won’t stir the curd. For, some curds are so hardened in texture that stirs don’t work. It’s like throwing pebbles in a mighty ocean where ripples don’t matter.

The GMO furor has been one such.

Ever since the first Genetically Modified organism (GMO) got implemented in 1996 and GM foods slowly made their way into commercial markets, controversies have raged like a hurricane let loose. Debate is an understatement here. There is no standard podium to stand and argue. Papers, counter papers, organizations, counter organizations are spewing venom at each other with unbridled ferocity.

Freedom of thought is one thing. But lawless freedom can never be the norm. More so in scientific pursuit. It’s healthy and just to have a million opinions. But when facts become tampered we are in trouble.

On one hand, we have the World Health Organization, the American Medical Association, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the British Royal Society, and every other respected organization that has examined the evidences, airing the same conclusion: ‘that consuming foods containing ingredients derived from GM crops is no riskier than consuming the same foods containing ingredients from crop plants modified by conventional plant improvement techniques.’

On the extreme other we have advocacy groups like Greenpeace, World Wildlife Fund, Organic Consumers Association, and Center for Food Safety bellowing concerns that potential risks to health and the environment relating to GM have not yet been adequately investigated.

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine goes a step further. According to their own research evidences “several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with GM food consumption including infertility, immune dysregulation, accelerated aging, dysregulation of genes associated with cholesterol synthesis, insulin regulation, cell signaling, and protein formation, and changes in the liver, kidney, spleen and gastrointestinal system.”

Caught in the crossfire of such ridiculously contradictory scientific and pseudo-scientific evidences, the common man and woman walk headless. They have absolutely no clue where to go, whom to go, what to or not to eat.

In other words, the quintessential question goes answered. Who’s going to educate the public? An absurd situation where the very beholders of all these experiments are kept in the lurch.

Japan makes a point here. According to the Consumers Union of Japan  truly independent research in these areas is being systematically blocked by the GM corporations which own the GM seeds and reference materials.

Indeed, independence in research has been studied by a 2011 analysis into conflicts of interest which found a significant correlation between author affiliation to industry and study outcome in scientific work published on health risks or nutritional assessment studies of genetically modified products.

A glorious example comes from Dr. Miller, physician and molecular biologist from  Stanford University’s Hoover Institution who hails India’s ‘hypocrisy’. According to him and I quote “Such discrimination has several root causes. They include the political influence of environmental activists and a deep-seated distrust of industry. But this flies in the face of existing scientific consensus, if activists and bureaucrats ever bothered about that.”

Excellent comments. But why doesn’t he see the same reasons with the European Union reluctant to adopt the same GMOs? The fact that he was the founding director of the FDA’s Office of Biotechnology is of course another matter!

This brings us to India and her stand on these issues.

With the big bellied bio tech industries prophesying that world hunger would be eradicated once GM crops and food consume the earth, India jumps in for the easy fix. Completely ignoring the fact that as far as India is concerned the problem lies not in the production but in its distribution. India has enough food grain — almost two-and-a-half times the required buffer stock — and yet 200 million Indians go hungry.

The Agricultural ministry argues that the ground reality is that during the last decade, area under cotton cultivation (approx. 12 million hectares, of which 90% is under Bt cotton) and productivity of cotton has gone up significantly”.

I am not refuting these statistics. Yet beneath the talkative assurances lies the overhanging silence. Why completely ignore the logistics of the European Union and other countries and not employ more patience before dumping genetically tampered foods on its citizens? What not have  independent research methodologies to address the pros and cons of GMOs? How about reaching out to the community a bit more than handing out the usual olive branch?

Science in the hands of politics and economics has always been the sheep before the shepherd’s stick.

When it comes to human health, exceptions have to be made. ”  End of quote

A Cancer Cure?

Why haven’t we heard of all the benefits turmeric offers including it being a cancer cure?

For two years, the US held a patent on turmeric.  The patent originally gave exclusive rights to the patent applicants.  This was so until India stepped up and provided so much evidence that turmeric had been in use since the dawn of time, some of the info provided to the patent office was over 100 years old!  Finally, after two years, the patent on turmeric was revoked.

The information that is trying to be used against turmeric is that since there are no trials, the effectiveness of turmeric is not proven! However, it has been in use for over five thousand years in East Europe!

This sounds like another case of cannabis!
