I just harvested my turmeric and thought I would share a few health facts with you. This simple root plant has amazing proven health benefits.
Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects. It is a very strong anti inflammatory, as strong as some pharmaceutical medications. It also has cancer and tumor reducing properties.
Unfortunately, curcumin is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. It helps to consume black pepper with it, which contains piperine, a natural substance that enhances the absorption of curcumin by 2,000%
What else can turmeric do for you?
Fights free radicals (Zombie cells) high antioxidants (curcumin delivers a one-two punch against free radicals. It blocks them directly, then stimulates your body’s own antioxidant defenses.)
Increases brain activity which may improve memory
Strengthens endothelium, which is the lining of your blood vessels. Improving blood flow and possibly reducing heart disease
Studies have shown that it can contribute to the death of cancerous cells and reduce angiogenesis (growth of new blood vessels in tumors) and metastasis (spread of cancer). It is a cancer killer. It has been found to reduce tumors in laboratory animals (tumor-ic ie; turmeric).
May help with arthritis pain.
Releases serotonin and dopamine which activates our happiness centers. Has been found to be as effective as prozac in treating depression. (so has St. John’s wort!)
There is some evidence that it may prevent cancer from occurring in the first place, especially cancers of the digestive system like colorectal cancer. In a 30-day study in 44 men with lesions in the colon that sometimes turn cancerous, 4 grams of curcumin per day reduced the number of lesions by 40%
Turmeric is fairly easily grown from Georgia south (zones 8 and up) by simply covering the rhizomes with 1-2 inches of soil. Water occasionally, fertilizer is not needed but may add to the size of the plants. Wait 8 months and as the leaves begin turning yellow, harvest the roots (rhizomes) carefully.
What’s up world? As I get closer to launching my book The Happiness Effect, I thought you might be asking yourself, “what the hell is the happiness effect?”
Well… have you ever had a day where you got what you wanted? You received the raise you asked for, you got the job, your partner said yes, Then while you were still beaming with joy, you noticed people around you seemed happy as well? Your happiness became addicting to others, you became a happiness attractor. This is an example of the happiness effect.
Many people feel the need for money, alcohol, or drugs to create happiness. However you don’t need external sources of joy, you can create this emotional high simply by following a few simple guidelines.
The Happiness Effect will teach you the simple steps necessary to maintain your health, control and improve your mind, which will then attract abundance, guaranteed.
Inside of the book you will learn that you must:
Get your body right,
to get your mind right,
to get your life right
The first step in creating more abundance in your life, is to get your health in order. Ask any Navy Seal what happens to their brain during their training, where they are deprived of food and sleep. They begin to lose their cognitive responses, they stop thinking clearly. Your brain depends on your body to be in good health to operate at its best, and your body depends on your brain, it’s all connected, and once you learn how to balance it, you will create the spark that ignites the happiness effect.
Once your health is on the right track, you will need to create positive momentum in your life. Which means, you need to learn to see all events as a learning, growing, or simply a positive experience in your life. This is certainly easier said than done, however by reading The Happiness Effect you will discover simple tricks, or shifts that can make this a lot easier.
Part of this process is learning to be grateful for all things. You break your leg, find a way to make it a positive experience. Gratitude is a huge key to living a happy and balanced life.
Finally I share secrets into how getting into nature will create some FREE healthcare for you. Nature holds many of the keys to your health, happiness, and, in creating homeostasis in your life. Believe it or not, just by standing under a tree, you breathe in natural chemicals called Phytoncides, which increase cancer fighting cells in our bodies called NK cells, or natural killer cells,
Just by going outside and breathing, you are healing yourself, and don’t forget about how beneficial sunshine is, with its FREE natural vitamin D supplement. Getting outside is important in creating your perfect life, and will many times, ignite the happiness effect.

Can eating and medicating with nature actually make you healthier and more balanced? Doesn’t modern medicine and prescription drugs enable us to live longer, healthier and happier lives? Today’s food and healthcare systems are saving lives, however when you eat processed foods, or take synthetic medicine you are altering your body in an unnatural way. Which will require you to take additional synthetic products to balance the unnatural effects that man-made food and medicine creates. You become a passenger on a roller-coaster ride of highs and lows of poor and good health. However when you eat and medicate naturally you are creating homeostasis in your body. Our body’s react better to nature than man-made chemicals.
Below you will find an excerpt for the book I am writing “Balanced life, Happy Life”, or maybe “lazy way to balance and abundance”?.
Three million people die annually from symptoms created by an unnatural, processed food, synthetic diet. That is 8219 people dying everyday from symptoms that they created themselves! You wanna save yourself and the world? Learn about embracing nature to create balance in your life.
Unedited excerpt from; Balanced Life, Happy Life. By Stephen T Radentz:
“The pharmaceutical drugs are less expensive than the fruits, vegetables, and herbs that will keep you healthy and balanced naturally. For the majority of Americans it is less expensive to take unnatural, synthetic drugs, than it is to eat a healthy diet. That is a very sad fact.
Another exciting part of our healthcare system is that the drugs are actually subsidized by the American government, using your tax dollars. However, the healthy, fresh, natural fruits and vegetables that will guarantee you good health, get less than three percent of all agricultural subsidies. The other ninety-seven percent of government agricultural subsidies (your tax dollars) go to mostly GMO corn, soybeans, cotton, wheat, and sorghum. Which are then converted into highly refined sugar, high salt, processed foods with synthetic nutrients, like high fructose corn syrup, which is in most if not all processed foods. You get to pay a premium for the foods that will keep you healthy, and the stuff that will kill you is cheap because your tax dollars subsidize it. Isn’t that super cool? YOU are paying the companies that are killing you.
That is awesome… right? Super cool stuff. And, in case you were wondering, according to Johns Hopkins University 250,000 people die from medical errors every year, and according to the Journal of American Medical Association 150,000 people die from adverse effects of prescribed medications each year. That is a minimum of 400,000 people that die every year from mainstream medicine, our healthcare system. (statistics from 2017)
I’m sure that you have heard of the opioid epidemic that our American government is spending hundreds of millions of dollars on trying to “fix it” (your tax dollars hard at work). Opioids kill on average 45,000 people a year, and this “epidemic” is in the headlines everyday. Yet eight times as many people are killed using our healthcare system and you hear nothing? 400,000 people have died from our healthcare system this year and last year, and the year before that, and no one is talking about this. Not one single headline swearing vengeance on our health system. Nope, no one seems to care. Well, I Care, and you should too!
According to the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), here are the leading causes of death in America. Most of these can be eliminated by eating naturally grown foods, medicating with naturally grown plants, and having a positive lifestyle! When you add up the top causes of death in America nearly three million deaths could be reversed by a simple lifestyle change. Check it out:
* Heart disease: 635,260 (may be prevented with healthy diet)
* Cancer: 598,038 (may be prevented with a healthy body and mind)
* * Tobacco 440,000 (Quit smoking)
* *250,000 medical errors (DON’T go to doctors if your not dying)
* Accidents (unintentional injuries): 161,374 (be careful, pay attention to details)
* Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 154,596 (may be prevented with a healthy body and mind)
* *Adverse effects from pharmaceuticals 150,000 (Eat and medicate naturally, no need for pharmaceuticals)
* Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 142,142 (may be prevented with a healthy body and mind)
* Alzheimer’s disease: 116,103 (may be prevented with a healthy body and mind)
* *Alcohol 88,000 (STOP drinking alcohol)
* Diabetes: 80,058 (may be prevented or controlled with a healthy diet)
* Influenza and Pneumonia: 51,537 (may be prevented with a healthy lifestyle)
* Intentional self-harm (suicide): 44,965 (may be prevented with a healthy body and mind)
* *Cannabis (saves lives)
(* stats from CDC.org)
** added to list for effect, stats from various government websites 2017)
You get to pay twenty percent of your salary for medical care that is killing you, and not one single government, or medical professional is trying to stop it. No one is telling you these facts.”
Follow along with my journey ans together we’ll learn how to defeat the above causes of death. We will overcome fear through good health, Positivity, and nature.
