Scientists are said to have currently demonstrated in animal experiments the medicinal effectiveness of turmeric (turmeric) on liver diseases. A British journal reported that some mice suffering from chronic liver inflammation (hepatitis) were mixed with the turmeric for four weeks. Compared to the control group, the animals treated in this way are said to have significantly reduced liver damage and biliary congestion. For clinical medicine there is a promising perspective for new therapeutic concepts against chronic inflammatory liver diseases.
Turmeric as an herbal antibiotic. In China and India, the healing properties of turmeric, the Latin name, have long been known Curcuma longa bears in China Jiang Huang is called and their Sanskrit name Haridra is. In Ayurveda, Indian traditional medicine, turmeric is particularly recommended for chronic diseases. The root is considered a natural antibiotic that balances the intestinal flora, also cleanses the blood and stimulates blood formation. In addition to indigestion, anemia and circulatory disorders, cough, sore throat and arthritis are also indicated. Due to the metabolic regulating effect, it should also help against skin disorders and diabetes. In the case of strains, sprains, wounds and itching, the plant is used externally in Ayurveda - together with honey.
Complex mode of action cannot always be demonstrated. Bit by bit, modern medical-scientific research decodes the building blocks from traditional healing systems of different cultures. Too often, however, the medicinal properties of medicinal plants, which experience has shown to be successful in natural medicine, cannot be scientifically proven. As a rule, individual active ingredients are extracted from the medicinal plants for research purposes and used in isolation in animal experiments. The aim is to make the effect predictable and reproducible at all times. Unfortunately, the synergetic (i.e. mutually reinforcing) effect of the numerous ingredients in a plant is lost, in which its healing power is probably due to the complex human organism. After all, in the case of turmeric, the evidence of effectiveness, at least in relation to the chronic inflammation of the liver, was initially successful.
