Throughout history, fluoride has been used on concentration camp victims and war prisoners alike to make them act more docile while imprisoned. Many studies have shown that fluoride kills brain cells, yet the United States government still regulates it in our city waters, and recommends it for dental health. Until enough people in the world wake up to the slow kill poisoning we have been exposed to in the United States, we have to be very careful about our exposure. Even the most cautious lightworker can be unknowingly exposed to fluoride. As much as we go for the reverse osmosis water and the fluoride-free toothpaste, every time we eat out, wash our hands in public, or take a shower in city water, we are exposing ourselves to fluoride.
Don’t worry though– adding a regimen of turmeric intake, whether in capsule form or a daily turmeric powder to prepare in your food, can reverse the harmful effects on your brain.* Turmeric has been proven to kill cancer cells, shrink cancerous tumors, and prevent inflammation in the body. It is also now proven to protect against the neurodegenerative effects of fluoride consumption.
Turmeric is an old Indian spice with a powerful medicinal compound called Curcumin. In a recent study, not only can curcumin reverse damage done to your brain cells by fluoride, but it can also prevent further damage from occurring. Nicknamed “Curecumin” for it’s healing properties, another recent study found that it is also just as effective as Prozac for treating depression. In addition to all of the benefits mentioned, it also helps joint function, aids in digestion, and can leave you with radiant skin.
Before you rush to the spice isle, consider this. The potency of the Turmeric you consume will determine the benefits you receive. It is important to opt for organic, non-genetically modified brands. A natural health food store in your area should carry brands like Megafood, which source its products from whole foods, making it easy to digest and giving you a potent herb that your body will absorb 100%. Many organic brands carry both capsules and powders to swallow in pill form or cook with.
Knowledge is power. As I study more on the topic of food as medicine, I will continue to share. Feel free to post or comment any other good herbal regimens you have picked up. Namaste. Xo
