Turmeric helps Alzheimer's disease

    In 2004, the department of neurology of Kanazawa University published a thesis about the curcumin contained in turmeric being effectual to help cure Alzheimer type of senile dementia.

    Alzheimer is said to occur due to the amyloidosis beta (Aβ). When this fibrillar amyloid plaques develop inside the brain, it becomes toxic and starts to kill the cells of the cerebral nerves. Until recently, scientists were not able to find a way to stop this expansion of toxin. However, Kanazawa University team had succeeded in the experiment of taking the curcumin out of turmeric and adding it into the solution that contains amyloidosis beta which made the plaques development stop.  In addition, when turmeric was administered to a brain cell that was showing an Alzheimer condition, not only did it stop the progression but also the fibrillar amyloid plaques had dissolved.

Now the team is suggesting curry for meals at nursing or retirement homes.

    It is true that in India, the percentage of people with dementia is extremely low compared to other countries. Moreover, the I.Q. test shows that Indians have a very high intellectual standard. I know the president of a software company. He tells me that the Indian engineers working for him in Japan has very high abilities. When you explain one issue, they seem to understand ten. Not only in math but they are very fast in learning the language.

    In Japan, the lower grades of elementary school only teaches multiplication of one digit up to 9x9. But in India, they seem to teach up to two digits, 19x19. Maybe we should recommend our children to eat more curry! Then their memory capacity may expand.

    But as they say too much of one thing is not good, there are different opinions about turmeric. Many say its good for the liver and some say its not good. So I went to do my own little research and found out that the autumn turmeric (common turmeric) has several times more curcmin than the spring turmeric (wild turmeric). Most of the data indicating that turmeric is not good for the liver was talking about the autumn turmeric that is very high in curcmin. The spring turmeric is low in curcmin but instead contain high levels of antioxidants.

     The science of anti-aging is really about the science of antioxidants.  Thus the spring turmeric is a high-potent item for your health in general. A website, Spring Turmeric Research Center ( in Japanese only) tells about a research on a new perspective on cancer, the cause being a type of virus.  Showing their clinical data, they claim that the cancer is virus-based, and taking spring turmeric will increase ones immune power and cure the disease.
Naturally a question arouses. If cancer is a type of virus would it be contagious? If the cancer virus is anaerobic (not needing oxygen), it does not infect through air. It may be contagious genetically or through the living environment.

    Now the issue is how much of the spring/wild turmeric should be consume? In my opinion, if you are under 20 years old, just eat curry once in a while. There is no need to take turmeric supplement. Healthy adult should take 2~3 tablets, three times a day. According to the Spring Turmeric Research, cancer patients should take 5 ~8 tablets, three times a day (3~6grams daily). One of the data in Germany says that the safe amount of consumption of turmeric is 1.5~3grams. So depending on your weight and condition of health, you should decide how much to take.

    Most of all, before taking any supplements, the important thing is to accumulate the energy of gratitude.  The magnetic-energy of gratitude is the most powerful source to change your life for the better. The daily act of gratitude sending to your ancestors will bring good fortune in many ways. So work on your power of gratitude. We all have the power to bring good to this world. Lets make it happen!

    Recently, some tensions are occurring in the international affairs. But I would say, with many of us working on the gratitude energy, the wind will blow in the right direction. The Emperor is working on the Shiho-hai (四方拝), sending gratitude for peace to the four directions daily. Let us do the same. Next March, another turning point may wave on us. Lets dive through it!

Thank you for letting us live

I would like to spread the Gratitude Awareness towards ancestral spirits and everything around us so 5% of the world population will start acting on it on a daily basis.

Thanks for your long run life work as a Kami work with your good will. We are so thankful for your zero ego translation in to English.

We are so expecting you to visit our blog and check on it, then if you have words, frankly just let us know.

Each time when you update on your site, we will do also. Unfortunately we see difficulty to up all of articles since 2007 until August 2010 for our blog. Hopefully we do our best. Always!

We wish to you have wonderful X`mas.

We will be thanking for our humble Holy Days. A gift is in a every day life such as we are alive even no gift from no body... Isn`t it?
A meaningless for feeling sad or loneliness for it. We do not lose own self is a best gift as a blessing.

I think Ry-man may say kind of same thing...

In America, in X`mas season, some can not stand lonely X`mas, because X`mas is so special for them.

Yes, everybody need someone for many reason but to know who we are. If we do not have someone, we may can not grow mentally and may lose to get know about really who we are. We are the mirror each other.
We are able to discover new us and see us from different angle through the human relations.

Yes, I have a humble X`mas but I have friends. Even just joking each other and do not care for each`s personal life much,much much better than no one around.... Let see, I will be greeting to a mail man if I have no one with me, catching someone at a store and try to talk, say something good joke to a cashier maybe. Not maybe... I have to. I have to try to make me fell better if no one dose not for me.

Sorry a getting a long talk at here. I will go back to my kitchen and cook my dinner. oops... already 8 PM, a late meal could be no good as Ry-man told to us. It causes our short life. OK then, I will eat some very light meal. and lot of boiled water for inner body cleansing.

Happy Holy Days! Merry X`mas is coming at an around corner!
