Everywhere you turn someone is sneezing, coughing and wiping a runny nose. Cold and flu season is in full effect and no wonder. Holiday eating, colder temperatures, travel, inactivity and sitting around watching bowl games have all poked holes in our immune systems making us susceptible to illness.
Whether you get the flu shot or not, it’s a fine time to work on building your immune system and here’s an affordable and flavorful way to do it. According to Ayurvedic Medicine, a whole medical system originating in India, your immune boosting protocol should include TUMERIC, the key ingredient in yellow curry. It has anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties, helps to break up mucus and engages the liver to do its job of detoxification. According to Dr. Andrew Weil, the founder and director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, “a daily sprinkle of turmeric in your cooking can be a valuable addition to your healthy lifestyle.”
At just under $7 for a 1.8 ounce bottle you might think of this as a ‘pricey spicy’. Especially when the sale price is still $5.26. But have no fear we can show you how to get it affordably. When we shopped in the Bulk Spices, we were able to get 2.4 ounces for $0.90! Now that affordable, flavorful health!
