Growing up in India, one of the cherished features of my life was the art of making home-remedies. These remedies often served as first-aid for many common illnesses and often prevented doctor visits. This art has been forgotten with modernization of the common household. As people became distracted by the high-language of science and “in-fallibility” of the medical system, many in the modern generations have given up the cultural knowledge, as superstition and quackery…
As all trends cycle back with time, the knowledge of old home-remedies and natural medicines for health benefits is becoming more available. Every day there are new research studies that shed light on various natural herbs, foods, and other therapies for clinical benefits. However, looking at research papers it is not always obvious how one might integrate these into one’s life.
The art of home-remedies is developed from intimate knowledge of body and how the body interacts with foods and spices. The effectiveness of the remedies comes from understanding the right place and time of their use. The elegance comes from acute attention to the aesthetic and experience of the user.
The best home-remedies demonstrate this combination of Knowledge, Effectiveness, and Elegance.
In this spirit, I would like to share this personal recipe of “Yellow Curry Chicken” (substitute tofu for Vegetarians)… It is very anti-inflammatory; best to eat at lunch or early-ish dinner (2-3 hours before bedtime)… good add for individuals with inflammatory conditions.
