There is an ancient and amusing saying, very prevalent in the East," Mr. Rat found a rhizome of turmeric; he immediately opened up a grocers/herbalist shop!" This may be used to talk about a dreaming, ambitious person, who is trying to extend his wings beyond his capacities, but on the other hand, it talks all about the power of turmeric.
As a grocer, Mr. Rat could not only sell turmeric as a condiment and as a spice, for cooking purposes, but he also had easy access to the cure-all for all ailments – turmeric!
Scientific research in the West, has found out that turmeric, has antibiotic and germicidal qualities, but that was already known in the ancient alternative medicine of the Orient and of the East. It had to be a necessary part of the medical arsenal of every wise woman out there, in ancient times, because if she did not have easy access to the medicine man or to a physician, she just had to resort to plain old turmeric.
So her family's cough and cold prevalent chest infections, cuts, wounds, and even skin problems in her teenage kids, with those pimples and skin blemishes could be cured by turmeric.
The idea that turmeric is used just as a spice, giving flavor and a golden color to cuisine, is slowly and steadily disappearing from the Western mind. Instead, they are getting to know more about its curative properties, thanks to research telling them about Curcumin – a natural product present in turmeric, which keeps you safe, healthy, and also prevents cancer.
Chinese, Greek, Egyptian, Indian, and Oriental medicine knew all about the value of this rhizome since ancient times. This plant belongs to the same family as the equally important curative Herb – ginger.
The herb that you are going to get in the market, is going to be a golden yellow powder, made up of grinding dry rhizomes in a heavy-duty grinder.
I remember one of the persuasive salesman, trying to persuade my father to buy some of his hundred percent pure, freshly ground in his own mill turmeric powder, packaged in his own shop. My father looked at him and told him, "last time I bought some of this hundred percent pure, freshly packaged powder from the market, I put a teaspoon full of it in the water, and I have got enough of saffron dye mixed in it to dye a turban!" That shut the sales man up, because that is when guilty conscience works.
Yes it is true; the powder that you are going to get in the market today is possibly definitely not pure, that is why it is necessary for you to use a grinder to grind the rhizomes.
This book is going to tell you all about the magic of turmeric, and you are going to be surprised to know that you knew so less about this amazing herb/spice. Not only is it being used extensively to cure and prevent life-threatening diseases, but it can help save you a lot of headaches and possible financial expenditure, related to your health in the future.

Really nice read
Had a nice time reading it! Someone put a lot of work into researching turmeric and the recipe for antiseptic paste works very well on mosquito bites!
