The Telegraph news article “Breast cancer sufferer ‘used superfoods to combat disease” was a huge breaking story. It talked about a woman who was diagnosed with breast #cancer . She declined traditional treatments and decided to find a cure for her diagnosis with nutrition. She used a range of #superfoods including the #Ayurvedic #spice #Turmeric (used in #Daal) which she claims “makes #cancer cells commit suicide”. Four years later, she has no sign of cancer coming back. What a blow to #pharmaceutical companies who build their empires on traditional modern #medicine (though I acknowledge their contributions and place in the medical community) .
In our society we are encouraged to visit doctors so they can over-prescribe us chemically produced medicine and make these pharmaceutical companies richer. I don’t think people should be surprised when certain individuals get cured from illnesses by just using natural remedies because that’s what people used for centuries prior to us.
From a culinary and medical perspective, curry spice, is one the most important spices.

Turmeric improves liver function. This is done through the production of enzymes that break down toxins into materials that are easily eliminated by the body. Taking turmeric increases the production of these enzymes, thus improving liver function.
