Turmeric is a tropical perennial plant in the same family as ginger, native to India.  Most herbal traditions use turmeric to "invigorate the blood." It is so useful as a medicine that the Chinese names for the plant both call it "gold," chuan yu jin, river constrained gold, and guang yu jin, plain constrained gold. In ancient times, turmeric was reserved for patients who were relatively weak.

Turmeric is promoted as an anti-inflammatory, being prescribed to relieve inflammation caused by arthritis, muscle sprains, swelling, and pain caused by injuries. It is also useful to treat a wide variety of conditions, including flatulence, jaundice, menstrual difficulties, hemorrhage, toothache, bruises, chest pain, and colic.
