Benefits of Turmeric for Arthritis:-
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is known as Aamvata in Ayurveda. Amavata is a disease in which vitiation of Vata dosha and accumulation of Ama takes place in the joints. Amavata starts with a weak digestive fire which leads to accumulation of Ama (toxic remains in the body due to improper digestion). This Ama is carried to different locations through Vata but instead of being absorbed, it gets accumulated in the joints. Turmeric helps to reduce Ama due to its Ushna (hot) potency. Turmeric has also Vata balancing property and thus gives relief from the symptoms of arthritis like pain and swelling in the joints.
Benefits of Turmeric for Stomach ulcers:-
Turmeric helps to manage stomach ulcer which occurs as a result of chronic hyperacidity. According to Ayurveda, this is due to an aggravated Pitta. Drinking Turmeric milk balances Pitta and helps to reduce the acid level in the stomach. It also promotes quick healing of the ulcer. This is because of its Ropan (healing) properties.
Benefits of Turmeric for Skin disorder:-
A Kapha-Pitta dosha skin type can be prone to acne and pimples. According to Ayurveda, an aggravation of Kapha increases sebum production which clogs the pores. This results in the formation of both white and blackheads. An aggravation of Pitta also causes red papules (bumps) and inflammation with pus. Turmeric helps in balancing Kapha and Pitta in spite of Ushna (hot) which helps to remove clogs and inflammation as well.
