I had a heart Attack in 1994 and a portion of my heart was damaged. To repair this damage I took turmeric 1/4 spoon twice a day. After 1 year there was no sign of damage. In India and Pakistan turmeric is still number one therapy for skin, internal bleeding, for sprains and many more. Anyone who has had a heart attack I could use red chillies & turmeric with fresh yogurt.
