Herbal Medicine

Herbal medicine blurs the line between foods and medicines – a line that, in many cultures, was never drawn in the first place.

Using herbs and spices that have disease-preventive effects in foods is one of the best ways to take advantage of their healing power. For example, it appears that the daily use of the spice turmeric in curry dishes is one reason elderly people in India have one of the lowest rates of Alzheimer’s disease in the world.
