Medicinal Spices

In my last post I listed several weird fruits that have health medicines.

This time I’m talking about spices.

Spices have been used for ever… For example, the Bible mentions that in 1000 BC, Queen Sheba visited King Solomon in Jerusalem and offered him “120 measures of gold, many spices, and precious stones.”

Did you know that most culinary spices have also medicinal uses?

Here are some examples:

Basil – Used migraines, bed time restlessness, yeast infections, eliminates candida, gargle and mouthwash.

Chicory – Liver cleanser, fat cleanser, dissolves gallstones.

Chilli – The enzyme isolated from chilly is used in the treatment of certain type of cancers.

Black Pepper – The major functional properties of pepper are analgesic, anti-pyretic & anti-oxidant & anti-microbial.

Nutmeg – It is beneficial for the treatments of asthma, heart disorder and bad breath.

Saffron – the miracle saffron extract is used as a appetite suppressant, being used in the fight against obesity!

Turmeric – It helps deal with skin problems. It also makes coping with diabetes easier.
