The Golden Goddess

Turmeric has over 300 compounds, many of which are phytochemicals that have disease preventative properties. Turmeric displays anti-biotic, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidants effects. A classic example of food being medicine. While there are many beneficial compounds in turmeric, the one that has received the most attention is curcumin.

The Relationship Dance

We’ve all been there, you’re seeing a guy and you’re beginning to like him, he’s attentive, seems thoughtful, intelligent and makes you laugh. Then, just when it’s all going well and has the potential to develop into a committed relationship, he suddenly changes.

You begin to wonder if you did something wrong and start to question what has changed? I’ve heard it […]
