List of Herbs & Spices (About) Articles

NOTE-1: Some of the articles reference specific nutrients in the food; however, you get the maximum benefit from these nutrients only in the whole food – not from supplements or processed foods – because of synergy in the whole food.

NOTE-2: Originally I had one menu for curries and blends, but later decided to separate the curries and blends into separate menus because the original menu was getting too long; (I’ve saved the original as a draft for my own reference).  I’ve redone the Curries post and Blends post because of a problem with the original ones. Some recipes may still have links to those old posts; please let me know the recipe (link) if you find such an error, so I can fix it (the old links should give a ‘not found’ error).

CAUTION: Many commercial herbs/spices are contaminated with toxic heavy metals, and/or are irradiated. It’s best to grow your own, or buy those that are Organically grown. I get most of mine from our local Swan Valley Herbs store. See Green Med Info article for more: Toxic Contaminants Found in 32 Spices Tested. (I’ve also saved as pdf: GMI-ARTICLES > Spices_ManyTestedToxic_Contaminated-Irradiated_GMI_082523.pdf).
