The Site: Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka has long been known for the variety and quality of its spices. Typical crops include Cinnamon of Ceylon, Pepper, Cloves, Nutmeg and Ginger in addition to the Queen of Spices, Cardamom.
Studies show that cineole in Cardamom can stop alcohol or aspirin induced stomach ulcers, ease severe asthma, help to clear up sinus infections and help to prevent blood clots. Summing up all these benefits and studies suggests that Cardamom is probably not a stand alone treatment for colon cancer, but one of the oils where the non-specific benefits are the most relevant. When we use Cardamom we derive any number of advantages without necessarily being aware of every distinct therapeutic effect. Cardamom keeps you healthy.
Keeping up the Good Spirits
In difficult times art helps to keep up the Good Spirits. Attempting to provide some uplift during the current conundrum we have been fortunate to get permission from San Francisco Photographer and Mask Artist Ursula Widera-Cohen to use some of her iconic Mask Images imbued with the San Franciso mood. Please chuckle and enjoy!
