Nowadays we are living in an environment which is not so healthy and clean atmosphere, comparing to ancient days; we are surrounded by pollutions like

Air pollution,
Water pollution,
Noise pollutions…
These are the main pollution causing issues which are affecting directly to our environment and the place we are living.

When we don’t have a good and healthy surrounding, how can we expect a good and healthy life? There is more chance of having frequent health issues.
And these health issues are coming from our surrounding and from the bad environment which is due to not taking care of our surrounding and disturbing the god gifted beautiful nature in the name of development and progressiveness.
For example, cutting down trees for building malls, apartments, grounds etc. creates an imbalance in nature.
So doing this we all are compromising with our health and wealth …how???
The polluted air may be the reason to have health issues like fever, flu, breathing problems and asthma etc.

The polluted water may be the reason for malaria, dengue, chikungunya etc.
From the noise pollution, it affects our hearing ability and disturbing peace of mind by nonstop sound and which affects our work and normal life.

The polluted soil which affects directly to the fields where we grow the grains, vegetable, and fruits, where the same polluted soil is playing an important role in growing all these food sources for human consumption.
And these are the pollutions and bad environment which frequently affects our body and we do have health issues like

Breathing problem
With these problems for treatment we frequently visit the doctor but these are the health issues which we are getting from our surrounding …these are the problems which we are not getting by birth or hereditary and by age…..we do get these problems from the environment…so here visiting every time to doctor or clinic it’s not a healthy way to treat our body and health problems with several medications many time.

We can go for a safer and effective alternative for this called home remedies or natural remedies which we can prepare the remedies or medicines at the home only and that too from the things which we require for remedies preparation, which usually we have in our home especially in the kitchen for example turmeric.

Turmeric is one of the known and popular roots; it is a flowering plant of the ginger family.

The other names of turmeric are Curcuma, Arisina, haldi, and Manjal and the scientific name of turmeric is Curcuma longa.
