EP 134 WTH?!? The Doctor’s Chat: Do You Need Turmeric with Dr. Shivani Gupta

In this episode of WTH?!? The Doctor's Chat, Dr. Eckel welcomes Dr. Shivani Gupta onto the show. Dr. Eckel and Dr. Shivani dive into inflammation and how this impacts our overall wellness and achievement of longevity. With lower levels of inflammation in our gut, brain, and body, we can then get the health we deserve. Inflammation is limiting our health. It's something that dates back to the cover of TIME magazine in 1980 “we found the root cause of illness”; they were referring to inflammation. As you make your way through this episode, Dr. Shivani preaches the use of turmeric. Why is turmeric so beneficial to our health and wellness? Turmeric stems from the ginger family and is great for reducing inflammation. Turmeric contains 3% of curcumenoids and only 1% of them reduce inflammation. So when you are looking to buy turmeric, you need to be aware of your source to ensure you are getting the best results possible. Along with lowering inflammation, turmeric increasing your blood flow, acts as an anti-oxidant, and has immuno-modulating benefits such as anti-viral/fungal/bacterial. This helps with your immune health which is perfect for when you are traveling, ensuring a baseline support level, and entering the sick season. One of the 12 self-care healing rituals Dr. Shivani discusses is tongue scraping. This is the process of scraping your tongue with a metal device like copper and this helps with detox, ignites the digestive fire, helps with oral hygiene, and is an easy thing to practice as you can include it in your teeth brushing routine. When we look at our gut, we can look at it as a fire pit. When we want a fire we build it up, ignite it, nourish it, and then let is calm when we go to bed. The same thing happens with out gut. When we wake up, we want to start building our gut with love so when it's time to ignite the fire (aka our gut) it's healthy. At the end of the night we want to calm it down.
