Turmeric Powder

4 posts in this topic

Perhaps you will have a positive experience too! I take 1/2 tsp. of turmeric powder and mix it in a glass of water twice a day. ;) (The taste is bitter but oh well) My bowel movements have increased dramatically. In addition, turmeric is said to have the following properties:anti-inflammatory, anticancer, antibiotic, inhibits platelet aggregation and lowers cholesterol.

Sounds great to me! :D

I would love to hear your positive experiences with Turmeric. :lol:

I'm pretty sure that turmeric is responsible for my cholesterol going down. I was tested at having cholesterol of 237, then 240 (6 months later), then 240 again (2 months later - my doc put me on a statin, but I only took it for two days before quitting because of intolerable side effects), and then 200 (6 months later). The first reading was in the spring - my doc said since it was spring, it would likely go down after an active summer. It didn't, so he wanted me back two months later. During that time I took supplements, exercised some (ok, not a ton, but some more than before) and worked on my diet. The only thing that changed was my ratio, which got better (my HDL went from 43 to 57 in two months). Then, he put me on the statin Advacor (sp?) and I tried it two days and said no way. BUT 6 weeks before my final test, I started a supplement called Stone Free which has a high amount of turmeric in it and I took it three times a day (for liver health, also kidney health) and then I got tested. My doc couldn't believe it and said he was not concerned about my cholesterol anymore.

I take turmeric-only supplements now because since going gluten free (which happened about 6 months after the last cholesterol test and I haven't had that test done again) because Stone Free doesn't agree with me anymore. I don't know if it's because there's hidden gluten or what - the company can't confirm either way. But, during my brief stint seeing a rheumatologist, he was VERY impressed I was taking turmeric (he's east Indian) and told me he would like to do studies because in India, people eat a lot of turmeric and have lower autoimmune disease than in the US. Also, it's being highly researched for people with cancer and cystic fibrosis, as well.

I think it's good stuff. I don't think I'd enjoy drinking it every day, but there are many brands of capsules out there to take if you prefer. The ideal dose is 800mg a day at this point, according to my rheumy.

Cool thread! I hope others reply...

    • Hi Stephanie, I'm also from the UK, I've found this site more helpful than anything we have!  As already mentioned above, in my experience it could depend on what and where you were drinking. Gluten free food and drink isn't always (not usually) 100% gluten free as you may know, maybe you have become more sensitive to even a trace of gluten that is probably in gluten free food/drink. Is it possible you have a problem with corn, particularly high fructose corn syrup that is in a lot of alcoholic drinks? This was a big problem for me and the only alcoholic drinks I can tolerate are William Chase vodka and gin. I contacted the company last year and all their drinks are 100% gluten and corn free, made the old fashioned way with no additives, so maybe try their products if you like the occasional drink and see how you get on. If you drink out, not many pubs sell their products but I know Wetherspoons do and smaller wine bars may too. l was never a spirit drinker but I must say their products are absolutely lovely! Very easy on a compromised gut too considering it's alcohol. I second the suggestion on seeing a natural health practitioner. I've recently started seeing a medical herbalist, as I've got nowhere with my now many food intolerances since going gluten free last year and I've noticed a difference in my health already. 
    • Sorry for the very late reply and thanks for the replies, I didn't get a notification of any. In case anyone else comes across this and has been wondering the same as I was, I did try a vegetable broth and I did react to it in the same way as if I'd eaten the vegetables.  As for the candida, I've been using coconut oil and am seeing a medical herbalist for this and leaky gut. It's only been a few weeks but I've noticed an improvement all round.
    • What did you drink and where did you drink it?   NOTE if you drink something at a bar using their glasses your asking for trouble BEER IS EVERYWHERE in most bars and a CC hell.   If it was at home and a non grain based liqour then I would be really concerned that it might just be alcohol. I personally can not really drink much of anything any more. I love rum, and I cook with it sometimes in sautes. I also have rum extract/butter rum extract/and rum emulsion I use in shakes, homemade keto pudding/ mixed into dishes. and even add some to drink to give it a rum flavor lol.
    • I can only think of two things, 1 something you put on your potato was contaminated like the butter container could have crumbs in it or something like that as mentioned before, and you could be having a reaction to dairy or what ever was put in it.......IF it was just plain potato and you reacted with bloating and cramping you might have a carb issues, tad rare and most associated with additional auto immune diseases but could be in which case a diet of fats and protein would be your answer much like it is for me now days. What all have you eaten in the privous 8 hours including beverages, condiments, spices and foods?
    • They are gluten-free.  Did you use butter that might have gluten crumbs on it?  For me , it takes more than 2 hours to feel the effect of gluten- maybe something you ate before?  Maybe  stomach virus?
