Turmeric: The Supplement Everyone Should be Taking

Is turmeric Primal? You bet! And most of you know by now I’m a big fan of this ancient spice. Matter of fact I have been taking this herb in supplemental form and using as a cooking spice everyday for a couple years with amazing results.

Even though we know them as spices mainly used in curry, curcumin and turmeric have caused a buzz in the U.S. as a powerful natural herbal supplement. turmericTurmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma longa plant; it has a tough brown skin and a deep orange flesh. When discussing curcumin, you may also hear it described as turmeric. Often the two are used interchangeably, but there is a difference: turmeric is the yellow powder to flavor foods, and curcumin is the chemical contained in turmeric.

The History of Curcumin and Turmeric

For thousands of years, Asian, Indian and Indonesian cultures used curcumin and turmeric as herbal medicines and remedies. In various Asian folk medicine traditions, turmeric was used to treat conditions such as diarrhea, fever, bronchitis, colds, parasitic worms, leprosy, and bladder and kidney inflammation. Herbalists have applied turmeric salve to bruises, leech bites, festering eye infections, mouth inflammations, skin conditions, and infected wounds. Some people inhale smoke from burning turmeric to relieve chronic coughs. Some herbalists consider turmeric mixed with hot water and sugar to be a remedy for colds.

Get Ripped – 3 Day Fat Blast

From time to time we all get off track in our quest for optimal health. I’m no different from you – this happens to me a couple times a year. Over the many decades of experimentation on my part, I have found a great way to burn some fat and at the same time Primal Power Method Burn Fat Nowperform a health re-boot. The best part? I have perfected this technique to only take 3 days!

Over the last ten days, I had an event and two birthdays to attend – not a good recipe for healthy eating. The event I attended wasn’t too bad, as I was able to eat a healthy meal before I went. What really got me were the two birthday parties. I went to both of those completely starved and ruined my finely-tuned diet. Now I wish everyone around me practiced the Primal/Paleo lifestyle, this way I would be eating Bison burgers and other healthy dishes at these parties. Unfortunately, my friends and family struggle with their health and eat poorly like so many other American’s today.

What Is Kombucha And How Do You Make This Health Promoting Drink?

Primal Power Method Kombucha

I was introduced to Kombucha a couple years ago by a friend, and have been a big fan ever since. It is a definitely a much healthier choice than those empty calorie soda’s and soft drinks American’s love to consume today.

So What is Kombucha?

It is thought that the Kombucha mushroom (it’s not actually a mushroom) originated in China or the Middle East and spread via the caravan routes of trade. The first recorded mention of the tea was in China in the year 221 BC where it was known as “the Tea of Immortality”. In 414 A.D. Dr. Kombu from Korea brought Kombucha to Japan to treat the Japanese emperor Inkyo. From Japan, this incredible tonic spread to Russia, Europe, and India.

The Simple Life Baked Apple Dessert Recipe

Primal Power Method Baked Apples

Now I’m not a fan of never enjoying yourself and cutting out all the foods that you like. That is the approach some of the hardcore Primal/Paleo people take, but I have found this approach has a high failure rate. As I have discussed in my books and other written material, studies have found sugar to be highly addictive and has similar withdrawal symptoms as heroin.  So I consider going cold turkey, when it comes to sugar not be a good idea. The Simple Life is all about making better decisions and avoiding extremes, so that is why I especially like this Primal Power recipe. I usually indulge myself after a long bike ride with this treat, and I don’t feel guilty about it one bit. Now I didn’t create the baked apple recipe, come on that one has been around forever, but I did add a couple Primal Power tweaks that I think you will enjoy!
