Because I just lost my dear friend and sister-in-law to cancer treated with surgery, chemo and immunotherapy this spring, this topic remains hot on my mind, so I decided to write a concise, little post showing published, peer-reviewed scientific evidences of turmeric’s ability to prevent and treat breast cancer. I hope this will save someone some work!…
The American Heart Association just told us we all should steer clear of coconut oil! Did you notice how the media had an absolute hay day with headlines? “Coconut oil is bad and has always been bad,” was the sensational click bait of the day.

What is brain starvation and what causes it? I recently learned how an easily corrected deficiency in diet can actually cause active brains to function poorly – especially in boys.

Most of us are aware that boys and girls are different. They see things differently, they play differently and they think differently.
But, I was surprised to find out that boys also have different nutritional needs than do girls.
Is your son’s brain starving?
Last post, I showed Evidence that Turmeric Beats Prozac, Ibuprofen, and More (such as Lipitor, corticosteroids, Metformin, and a whole host of other anti-inflammatory drugs)….all with no-side-effects. Turmeric golden paste is a powerful way to get these benefits. Updated Aug., 2016.
Traditionally turmeric is used in curries in India where there are much lower rates of cancer, Alzheimer’s, and other chronic diseases than in the West. Our daughter visited India last year and found the spice remains widely used wherever she traveled.
So, many are asking, “How do I take it and how much?”
While I’ve used this turmeric for 8 years with “happy” results (no pun intended) for its anti-inflammatory effects and truly amazing Alzheimer-prevention powers, I did not realize turmeric is also a painkiller and natural mood elevator of the first order!
One of the things I love about what I do here at Deep Roots at Home is coming across hard scientific research that points to the safety and efficacy of many of the herbs and plants we have available to us. In many ways, naturally-occurring remedies surpass pharmaceutical drugs especially when we consider the terrible side-effects pharmaceuticals are known for, especially anti-depressants.
