Foods you can use to boost your health

GARLIC, ginger and onion, known as the trinity roots, are essential for cleansing, sustaining, and producing energy in the body.

The beneficial effect of each of them separately is amplified when they are cooked together.

Garlic fights viruses and bacteria. It also increases sexual energy that, with the practice of Kundalini Yoga, can be channelled upward for greater spiritual awareness.

Eat raw, baked, steamed, or in capsule form.

Onion is a universal healing food that purifies and builds new blood. It's recommended for colds, fever, laryngitis, and diarrhoea.

It also Increases mental clarity. Eat raw (preferred), juiced or cooked.

Ginger root soothes and strengthens nerves by nourishing spinal fluid. It also increases energy and vitality.

It's useful for menstruating women. Drink as a tea or juice or use it as a spice in main dishes.

Turmeric is good for the skin, mucous membranes and female reproductive organs. It increases bone and joint flexibility, and is anti-inflammatory.

Saute it for curries, casseroles, soups, gravies, and sauces. Turmeric needs to be cooked before eating.

You can cook it with a little water to make a paste that will keep in the fridge.
