'Olena, or turmeric, is a vital food staple on our island, and is used in both food and medicine. 'Olena is one of the most powerful antianflammatory ingredients on Earth, which is important as inflammation causes numerous health symptoms and diseases, as well as chronic pain. This means that 'olena is used for an endless list of health issues, and for good reason- it works! Just a small amount of fresh or dried turmeric, or even turmeric leaf tea, can change someone's day for the better. Those who consistently ingest turmeric reap many health benefits, and it is a go-to plant in terms of island wellness. La'au lapa'au practitioners use all parts of the plant to treat a variety of serious and simple ailments. Turmeric is a vital part of any natural medicine practice on the Hawaiian Islands.
