Turmeric is an amazing herb. It is truly one of my favorites.
According to WebMD
The root of turmeric is used widely to make medicine.

Turmeric is used for arthritis, heartburn (dyspepsia), stomach pain, diarrhea, intestinal gas, stomachbloating, loss of appetite, jaundice, liver problems and gallbladder disorders.

It is also used for headaches, bronchitis, colds, lung infections, fibromyalgia, leprosy, fever, menstrual problems, and cancer. Other uses include depression, Alzheimer’s disease, water retention, worms, and kidney problems.

Some people apply turmeric to the skin for pain, ringworm, bruising, leech bites, eye infections, inflammatory skin conditions, soreness inside of the mouth, and infected wounds.

Don’t confuse turmeric with Javanese turmeric root (Curcuma zedoaria).
Here is a simple way to drink turmeric juice on a regular basis.

Ingredients:
Turmeric root (powdered turmeric if you do not have a juicer)
Lemon
Raw Organic Honey or Coconut Nectar
Spring Water or Coconut Water

Mix ingredients to taste
Use juicer if using fresh turmeric root
