Turmeric is one the most thoroughly researched plants in existence today.
Its medicinal properties and components (primarily curcumin) have been the subject of over 5600 peer-reviewed and published biomedical studies.
Turmeric Getting a Lot of Attention
Given the sheer density of research performed on this remarkable spice, it is no wonder that a growing number of studies have concluded that it compares favorably to a variety of conventional medications, including: Lipitor/Atorvastatin, Corticosteroids (steroid medications), Prozac/Fluoxetine & Imipramine, Aspirin (blood thinner), Anti-inflammatory Drugs and many more.
Turmeric Health Benefits
Turmeric Studied as Cancer Treatment
Another way in which turmeric and its components reveal their remarkable therapeutic properties is in research on drug resistant- and multi-drug resistant cancers. We have two sections on our site dedicated to researching natural and integrative therapies on these topics, and while there are dozens of substances with demonstrable efficacy against these chemotherapy- and radiation-resistant cancers, curcumin tops both lists.

Cooking With Turmeric…
Turmeric powder is widely used to color and flavor mustard, relish, chutney, and pickles. It is a component of curry spice mixtures and commonly used in Indian and Indonesian cooking, where it originated. Turmeric enhances the flavor of many foods, including meats, poultry, seafood, eggs, potatoes, rice, lentils, and vegetables.
On the following pages you’ll find a great selection of Turmeric Recipes. Enjoy!
Slow Cooker Coconut Turmeric Chicken
“Anytime you cook with turmeric, it magically transforms the dish into a beautiful shade of orange, and it didn’t let me down in this dish. As the chicken cooked away in the slow cooker, it released its’ juices and mixed in with the coconut milk. What I ended up with is a super flavorful and nutritious golden broth!”GO TO RECIPE
Ginger and Turmeric Aromatic Rice
GO TO RECIPE
“This Ginger and Turmeric Aromatic Rice is the butter and soy to my rice. It’s an all grown-up version of a comforting dish. I recommend it henceforth be the replacement for all your rices, not just because it’s tasty, but also because it includes the magical root, turmeric.”
Turmeric Egg Salad Sandwich
“I love egg salad, and recently I began mixing turmeric into the mayo (or plain yogurt) to dye the dish a yellowish-orange color, as well as add a subtle, warm peppery taste to the eggs. When I feel like adding more depth and heat, I sprinkle some cayenne, or for a more complex taste, a dash of curry powder. Regardless of the variation, you get a flavorful, yellow twist to an egg sandwich.”GO TO RECIPE
Ginger and Turmeric Pickles
“Ginger, turmeric, cardamom and galangal all belong to zingiberaceae or the ginger family. Zingiberaceae, are a family of flowering plants consisting of aromatic perennial herbs with rhizomes. Rhizomes are knobby underground stems that have pungent and flavorful flesh.”GO TO RECIPE
Grilled Turmeric Chicken Kabobs
“These succulent skewers of tender turmeric chicken are particularly good served over Thai Coconut Rice, made with Jasmine rice. They’re spicy, salty and garlicky all in one juicy bite. Garnish with some fresh cilantro leaves and serve sizzling from the grill.”GO TO RECIPE
Turmeric-Curried Golden Carrot Slaw
“This easy Turmeric-Curried Golden Carrot Slaw is my go-to carrot salad for summer. This is a recipe I have shared before, but this time I infuse a superfood boost to the sassy, sweet flavors. The familiar pairing of crunchy carrots and sweet juicy raisins is one everyone will enjoy. Creamy tahini keeps things rich and amazing while also keeping things dairy-free.”GO TO RECIPE
“A tandoori-inspired spice rub and smokiness from the grill flavor these tofu “steaks.” While you’re there, grill some vegetables, too, to serve alongside. Serve with: Grilled eggplant and cherry tomato skewers and brown basmati rice.”GO TO RECIPE

In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
