“Everything you eat is either fighting disease or fueling it.” We know foods have the potential to be healing. What you eat can either harm your health or make it better. And nowhere is that more true than with medicinal foods like garlic, turmeric, and ginger. All three of these foods have amazing flavor and incredible benefits. They can help prevent disease and even cure certain illnesses and complaints. These three represent the trinity of healing foods.

Healing Foods – Ginger

Ginger has been used for thousands of years as a healer. Its benefits are widely recognized and extremely varied. It is seen as a “warming” food that can increase circulation and reduce general inflammation. While the list is long, here are just a few of the benefits of this remarkable root:

  • Cancer prevention (Shown in one study to shrink prostate tumor size by a whopping 56% in mice)
  • Morning and motion sickness treatment
  • Nausea treatment
  • Pain reducer
  • Swelling reducer
  • Ovarian cancer treatment
  • Arthritis treatment
  • Alzheimer’s/dementia prevention
  • General digestive tonic
  • Heartburn treatment

Here is more information on the health benefits of ginger.

Turmeric

Closely related to ginger and among the most powerful of healing foods, turmeric has similarly been used to treat and prevent illness and disease for hundreds if not thousands of years. This orange-hued root vegetable has a more smoky flavor and is found in curries and dishes around the globe. According to GreenMedInfo.com, the root “has been scientifically documented to have over 500 applications in disease prevention and treatment.” Among these are:

  • Reduced oxidative stress
  • Fat loss promoter
  • Liver detoxifier
  • Heart disease prevention
  • Skin tonic
  • Diabetes prevention
  • Cancer fighter and treatment
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Natural painkiller

Here is more information on the top health benefits of turmeric.

Garlic

Garlic is a more commonly used food in the U.S. and other western cuisine. This means it is widely available, and you can easily reap its benefits at mealtime. But this bulb isn’t just “good for you”, it packs a serious medicinal punch and has even been shown to cure drug resistant tuberculosis. Other benefits include:

  • Inflammation fighter
  • Cancer prevention
  • Anti-arthritis
  • Detoxification
  • Toothache reliever
  • Cold prevention
  • Cough relief
  • Heart health promotion
  • Fights infections like: Herpes, MRSA, Cholera, Thrush, Streptococcus, and Influenza

Here is more information on the health benefits of garlic.

These are 3 of some of the most powerful healing foods.
