Better health begins in the kitchen. Sure it’s important to eat plenty of nourishing vegetables, whole grains, fruits, nuts, seeds and the like. But there are considerable health benefits to be had from simple everyday herbs and spices too.
These ingredients take a back seat to the primary foods in our diet – but they are in fact natural wonders that offer multiple benefits. In essence, many herbs and spices are “superfoods” – natural substances that can improve your overall health, speed up healing, boost your energy levels, help you lose weight, strengthen the immune system, and even extend your life.
Readily-available herbs, spices along with onions, chives and garlic (and others) make our dishes tastier. That’s the main reason why most of us have them on hand and replenish our supply regularly.
But these unsung heroes also serve as natural agents for healing and improved health too. They can also play a key role in the prevention and reversal of many different conditions and disease.
Simple dietary adjustments – including adding more healthy seasonings like oregano, turmeric, and cayenne pepper to daily meals – can make a significant difference to the quality of life for you and your family.
The benefits of spices and herbs are there for the taking – and there are virtually no side effects either. What’s more is that these natural gifts are readily-available and dirt-cheap to buy. We just need to open our eyes to the possibilities. And that’s the purpose of this book.
It's time for herbs, spices and other seasoning foods to emerge and take their rightful place among the healthiest foods in the world.
Many of these natural foods have been used as herbal remedies for centuries. And as Dr. Bharat Aggarwal, a research scientist from the University of Texas explained, “We're now starting to see a scientific basis for why people have been using spices medicinally for thousands of years”.
