Absolutely Natural and Super Powerful Inflammation Treatment
Chronic inflammation is the precursor to many health problems, ranging from the obvious ailments like arthritis to conditions directly caused by inflammation such as heart disease and diabetes.
Chronic inflammation is present in all lifestyle diseases, and in many cases (such as heart disease) is even the direct cause of them. It has even been linked to cancer. This is not the type of inflammation that you get from say, a sprained wrist (swelling, redness), but rather a systemic and ongoing inflammatory process that negatively affects every system in the body. Essentially, it is your own immune system turning on you. And it is almost always caused by eating too much of the wrong types of food.
Fortunately, food will also eradicate it, and Turmeric and Ginger are two ancient roots that have incredible healing properties, and when combined, are more effective than any drug in relieving chronic inflammation. Here is an easy and yummy way to get these vital nutrients into your body every day!
Ginger, turmeric, and carrot juice smoothie
The benefits of turmeric are seemingly endless. Research has shown that this root can actually regulate over 700 genetic expressions and has literally hundreds of health benefits. The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, which is also responsible for turmeric’s bright orange color. Its number one property is the ability to relieve chronic inflammation, the root cause of all disease.
Turmeric is a cousin of the ginger root, and when the two are combined they produce a synergistic effect that promotes not only relief from inflammation but also cleanses the liver and puts fat cells to the torch. Ginger and turmeric are available at health food stores and are usually right next to each other. They look similar but the turmeric has a bright orange/yellow cross section.
They are strong spices, especially the ginger, so a little goes a long way, as you will see in this recipe. So for some added sweetness, satiety, and awesome health benefits, we are going to combine it with some carrot juice. Carrots are loaded with vitamin A and antioxidants including beta-carotene.
Organic ingredients are the best way to go.
