Use of Turmeric in Ayurveda

Turmeric, known as 'Haridra' in Sanskrit and 'Haldi' in Hindi, has been recognized as a medicine with multiple properties in Ayurveda since ancient times. It is being used as a traditional medicine for treating several ailments as well as for the beauty care treatment.

When used in food items it gives yellow color and adds flavor to the food. It also helps in purification of blood thus acting as a remedy for many skin ailments. The botanical name of turmeric is 'Curcuma longa' and it is a member of the Ginger family, Zingiberaceae.

Turmeric is considered to be an important part of the range of herbal medicines described in Ayurveda systems of medicine.

Ever since vedic times, turmeric has been used in Ayurveda primarily in two ways turmeric paste and turmeric juice. While the juice is taken orally the paste is applied on the skin externally.

To get turmeric juice-a translucent, reddish-yellow tasteless liquid one has to crush raw turmeric. Depending on the ailment and the prescription, this juice has to be taken either raw or it may be mixed with honey to give it some flavor. In Ayurveda turmeric juice is considered to be a blood purifier. It is also said to be quite beneficial in chronic illnesses and stomach ailments. In addition to this it is also rescribed for treatment of skin ailments.

Turmeric, in the form of a paste is often prescribed by practitioners of Ayurveda for beauty care as well as to treat various skin ailments. However, the application of turmeric paste has to be done for a considerable period of time.
