Turmeric for Gallstones and more

Here's yet another thing that curcumin does: it has
been proven to increase the solubility of bile, that is,
it makes it dissolve more easily. Bile is a fluid
produced by the liver that helps you digest fats, but
when the liver or gall bladder becomes congested, this
fluid can harden, forming gall stones. Taking turmeric
daily has been shown to eliminate up to 80% of gall
stones in just a few weeks. It will also help prevent
them from forming in the first place.

Turmeric: Better Than Celebrex

Turmeric (Curcuma longa), besides being a popular
curry spice, is also a COX 2 inhibitor, that is, it
inhibits the action of an enzyme called cyclooxygenase-2
which is partly responsible for the pain of arthritis, so
it can be used as an effective (and much safer substitute
for the arthritis drug “Celebrex“ and other similar
drugs. It also contains a substance called curcumin which
decreases amounts of prostaglandins (involved in the
transmission of pain signals) and stimulates the adrenal
glands to release natural cortisone, which also reduces

In fact, curcumin has proven to be almost as
effective as cortisone in the treatment of some kinds of
inflammation; and remember how I said in the first lesson
on cayenne pepper that it depletes substance P, which is
also involved in pain transmission? Turmeric does that
too. In short, it's a safe and effective pain killer so
reach for it instead of aspirin or other pain killers
(but remember to look for the source of your pain as

Take advantage of its pain/inflammation relieving
abilities for things like arthritis, bunions, bursitis,
tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome (inflammation of the
wrist), gout, headaches of all sorts, geographic tongue
(tongue inflammation), etc. It can be taken as a tea, in
capsules, as a tincture, or applied directly to the
painful area as a poultice or fomentation. Use your
imagination. Also take a small amount daily (a teaspoon
or so) and get on a good cleansing program to help keep
the problem from coming back.

One study in Thailand showed that taking turmeric
is good for relieving the pain of ulcers.

In Ayurveda, an East Indian system of medicine,
physicians make a paste of two parts turmeric and one
part salt to apply as a poultice to swollen areas. Some
also add some ginger to this mixture.

Dr. Michael Murray, N.D., co-author of the
Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine, calls curcumin one of
nature's most powerful anti-edemic and anti-inflammatory
agents. So use it both internally and externally wherever
there is abnormal swelling.

Curcumin also thins the blood and helps prevent
blood clots. This is very important in preventing such
things as strokes, heart attacks, thrombosis (blood clots
inside a vein), etc.

Here's yet another thing that curcumin does: it has
been proven to increase the solubility of bile, that is,
it makes it dissolve more easily. Bile is a fluid
produced by the liver that helps you digest fats, but
when the liver or gall bladder becomes congested, this
fluid can harden, forming gall stones. Taking turmeric
daily has been shown to eliminate up to 80% of gall
stones in just a few weeks. It will also help prevent
them from forming in the first place.

It also contains several compounds that protect the
liver from damage.

Turmeric is rich in antioxidants like vitamins A
(carotenoids), C, and E and others (yes, curcumin is an
antioxidant too) which help prevent a great many
complaints associated with old age like cataracts.

It is also another of many herbs that is helpful
for treating amenorrhea (stopped menstruation). Remember
to consider whether the cause might be natural like
pregnancy or menopause or due to under-nourishment.

Turmeric also inhibits many common problem types of
fungi and is useful for athlete's foot. Try adding a
teaspoon or two to a hot footbath (soaking your feet in a
small tub or pan of hot water).

It kills various parasites as well, like lice and
scabies (microscopic parasitic mites that infect the
skin). Make a paste and apply it to all the affected
areas each day for a couple of weeks or until the problem
is cured. For lice, it's also a good idea to boil your
clothes and bedding to prevent reinfection.

Take turmeric to get rid of other parasites too,
especially nematodes. Turmeric contains four anti-
parasitic chemicals, each of which is not effective
alone, but when combined, they make a strong worm-killing
cocktail. This phenomenon is called synergy and you will
never find it in any pharmaceutical drugs since they are
all isolated chemicals. Only God's herbs have this

Make a concentrated tea or tincture of turmeric to
use as a yellow dye or ink, or use it as a food coloring
instead of potentially toxic synthetic varieties.

Turmeric helps the body to use insulin more
efficiently, making it great to use for both type #1 and
type #2 diabetes.

Various studies show that it can help heal wounds
(apply as powder or use the tea as a wash) and even help
fight Alzheimer's Disease and Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
(taken internally).

And last but not least, turmeric has been proven
effective at destroying certain types of cancer cells.
The researchers at the University of Texas MD Anderson
Cancer Center conducted a study which showed that when
curcumin was introduced into cell cultures containing
multiple myeloma (a type of cancer), it stopped the
cancer cells from reproducing and those that were left
died. Previous research indicates that it may be
effective in fighting other cancers as well (I'm not at
all surprised). And best of all, it has no known side
effects, even in very large amounts.

Here are the free Bonus Formulas I promised you:

First, some basics of making herbal formulas:

Herbal formulas are a great way of addressing the
many different aspects of a condition with one
preparation. For example, a good formula for heart
disease would probably include an herb to strengthen and
protect the heart, one to nourish the tissues, one to
thin the blood and increase circulation, one to regulate
the heartbeat, and one to lower cholesterol and clean out
the arteries (the elimination organs should also be

Formulas are also good to use because people are
all different and while one might respond best to one
herb, another might get better results with a different
herb. I find that one of the herbs that relaxes me the
best is chamomile; it puts me right to sleep, and
valerian root just calms me down. My mother is the
opposite - valerian puts her to sleep while chamomile is
mildly relaxing/calming for her.

By combining 2-3 (or even more) herbs that have the
same general effect, or work on the same part of the
body, you will have a preparation that will supply the
needs of a much greater number of people. One person
might respond best to black pepper, another to ginger,
and yet another to fennel, but if you combine the three,
you'll have a preparation that will give them all
marvelous results.

These formulas are a great asset and healing tool,
but they are not the only tools in your healing tool box;
they are not an entire program, and you must address the
root cause of a problem for healing to be complete and
permanent. This course makes a great beginning to your
healing journey, but please don't think that this is all
you need to get well. Lifestyle changes and other natural
treatments are also in order.

Also, these formulas were designed so that you can
make them entirely from the herbs in this course and
while you will certainly see results when they are used
properly, there are many other herbs that I normally use
in such formulas to make them even more effective, that
are not included here because I wanted to make these
formulas easy and affordable for everyone to make and use
(not everyone has access to or can afford Gymnema
sylvestre or wild American Ginseng for making their

Don't be afraid of designing your own formulas
either, just research and learn about the properties of
different herbs and put together a combination of herbs
that address different aspects of a particular problem.
You don't need a degree and you won't hurt yourself, just
listen to your body and use your common sense, and you'll
come up with a wonderful formula. And if you have any
questions, please don't hesitate to email them to me.

Parts - "Part" just means an equal measurement. It
varies according to how much of the formula you want to
end up with. So if you have a formula that calls for 3
parts of one herb and 1 part of another, and you want to
end up with 4 ounces of the formula, then each part would
be one ounce. In other words, you would use 3 ounces of
the one herb and 1 ounce of the other.

Also, it is more accurate to measure parts by
weight than by volume, in other words, use a food scale
instead of a measuring cup if you can. If you can't get
one, just estimate and don't worry about it, but if you
are going to be making large amounts of these formulas,
you will find a scale to be of great help.

Once you have measured out your herbs, you can mix
them together and then either powder them, tincture them,
or do whatever kind of preparation you want to. Remember,
the instructions for making preparations are in my free
ebook that you can download right now. If you haven't
already, you can do so by following the link at the top
of this email.

Some (rather inexperienced) individuals say that
people shouldn't take multiple herbs at the same time
because they are "risking side-effects from unnecessary
medications." This simply is not true. These people are
making the mistake of thinking that herbs operate in the
same way that drugs do. They do not.

Drugs have harmful side-effects because they are
toxic foreign substances that interfere with the body's
normal way of functioning in order to control/suppress a
symptom of an illness. Herbs, on the other hand, are
entirely natural substances (foods) that were designed
specifically for our body by our all-wise Creator and
they work with the body, encouraging and supporting its
natural processes and supplying it with what it needs to
correct the cause of illness and heal itself.

This is why herbs do not have the side-effects of
drugs and why it often takes longer to feel results with
herbs than with drugs; it takes longer to heal a problem
permanently than to simply ignore it.

The effects of herbs are very different from those
of drugs because their mode of action (the way they work)
is different. Healing herbs, when used with prudence and
skill, will never have ANY harmful or damaging side-
effects of any kind, regardless of whether they are taken
in combination with other herbs or not. Your body has the
ability to take only the parts of herbs and foods that it
needs and discard the rest. It cannot do this with
synthetic chemicals and drugs; they are absorbed
according to how much you take, rather than how much you

Herbs also contain many nutrients (“raw materials”)
to help your body build and repair itself and strengthen
it so it can defend itself against disease; there is no
synthetic chemical drug anywhere that does this.

So don't worry about taking formulas with several
herbs. Herbs are foods, and saying that herbs are harmful
in combination, when they are not harmful alone, is like
saying that people should not eat salads because
combining cucumbers and lettuce with tomatoes might
produce harmful side-effects. Give me a break!

Drugs can interact harmfully with each other and
sometimes with various herbs and foods, but herbs will
not interact harmfully with any other herbs or with live,
natural, wholesome foods. Herbs are NOT drugs, they do
not operate in the same way, and they do not produce the
same kind of effects/side-effects.

The worst thing that can happen to you if you
overdose on an herb that I (or another good herbalist)
recommends, is that you would do a little vomiting.
That's the worst case scenario and it's nature's way of
making sure that you don't get too much of the herb at
once. How awesome is that!? A medicine with a built-in
protection mechanism against overdose! No drug can do

One note on preparations: you can take these herbs
in capsules, but you will get better (and faster) results
from liquid extracts like teas, syrups, tinctures,
glycerites, oils, and vinegars. See my free e-book for
instructions on how to make these.

Here are some suggested dosages:
capsule: 2 caps 3 times a day
tincture/glycerite/vinegar: 2 dropperfuls 3 times a day
oil: apply liberally to the affected part
tea: 1-2 cups 3 times a day

In emergencies or extra severe situations, take 4
times the normal dose or even more if necessary. For
animals, children, etc. figure the dose by putting their
body weight over 150, the average adult weight. In other
words, an adult of 150 pounds would get the normal dose;
a child or pet that weighs 50 pounds would get 1/3 of the
normal dose; an overweight person of 300 pounds would get
twice the normal dose; and a horse of 1,500 pounds would
get 10 times the normal dose. This gives you a good
starting dose, but keep in mind that you can go up or
down from there depending on what the person's needs are.
