Turmeric   89  3   

Posted by Jennifer (Houston, Texas) on 09/15/2013

[YEA]  I am having great results using curcumin supplements (a concentrated form of Turmeric) for fighting staph. I am also using Oregano Oil, Cell Food, One Daily, B-Complex, Vitamin C, and homemade Kefir.

[NAY]   Personally (your mileage may vary), Turmeric didn't really do much for treatment or prevention of my boils. I was drinking quite a bit of it, but I never saw much change in my outbreaks. I think things really began to change for me when I started:

1.) Eating better. I changed my diet from mostly processed food and meat to probably 80% veggie, and only high quality meats, fish, and dairy for the remainder. I cooked all of my own meals and ate a lot of organic produce.

2.) Making daily smoothies loaded with healthy things, including coconut oil, local raw honey, green superfoods, fruits, flax seeds, and green leafy vegetables. I can share the recipe if anyone wants it.

3.) Taking garlic baths. This sounds strange, but it may have been THE thing that helped me get control of the external wounds that formed at the infection sites. To do these I blended up big chunks of garlic in water and let the water sit for 15min to allow allicin to form. Then I would draw a hot bath and pour the garlic puree into it and soak for an hour or two. The lesions would drain, allowing the garlic water to effectively infiltrate the areas of infection. I believe it took about a week of doing this once or twice a day to reverse the infection and show significant healing.

Other things I was taking at the time include Olive Leaf, Oregano Oil, and Apple Cider Vinegar.

I tried these and many other things over the course of my four month ordeal with staph, including two failed attempts to eradicate with antibiotics. I relentlessly scoured this site and others for hope and feel grateful to everyone here for helping me pull through that miserable stage of my life. I hope this humble contribution can help someone else to overcome this affliction just as your combined contributions eventually led to the things that helped me overcome it. Thank you all.

Re: Turmeric and Other Staph Infections: I am reading all of the testimonials I can and would like to know if turmeric would be as effective on OTHER TYPES OF STAPH INFECTIONS TOO. I just had a hip replacement and contracted 2 other types of staph infection. I have been on aniti-biotics for ages now, ( orally and IV). I was just taken off all anti biotics, (finally), but would like to feel that there is something out there, that should I NEED it, would continue to fight this infection. I am taking cayenne now, but would love to know if the TURMERIC would be a good choice, too. It seems that it would. (As a deterrent and also a good bacteria fighter). Could someone write an answer to this. I feel I am at the mercy of anti-biotics and I realize that their potencies can deteriorate the longer you use them. I went in the hospital to get a Hip replacement and got 2 miserable staph infections that have played havoc with me physically AND mentally! 9 weeks on IV, AND at home, orally.

Thank you so very much.

[YEA]  Turmeric for MRSA boils

I cannot believe turmeric has actually worked, above antibiotics and prescription mupirocin cream, better than heat and epsom salts. After being on Bactrim and mupirocin for three days, I saw no results. I have boils under my arm (maybe 6, some are small, some are golf ball sized), one on my shoulder, and one on my sternum. I had one on my right breast a couple months ago, which was misdiagnosed as a brown recluse bite, lanced, drained, and packed by a surgeon. OUCH!

When I started getting the recent outbreak, I thought they were cysts. However, once the one on my shoulder showed up, I figured it was something else, as that one looked just like my "spider bite. " I went to the dermatologist who diagnosed it as a staph boils, and told me they were likely MRSA. My daughter had MRSA on her finger seven months ago, so I may have been carrying it since. He prescribed me Bactrim and mupirocin to put on my boils and in my nose. I tried heat, epsom salt baths, and drawing salve in addition to the antibiotics. There was no change.

In desperation yesterday, I started trying turmeric mixed with other things I heard would help. I combined turmeric (2 tsp), local raw honey (1/2 T), black pepper (1/4 tsp), aloe vera gel (didn't measure, maybe 2 tsp), and baking soda (just shook enough in to make a paste). I applied the mupirocin first, then slathered the turmeric paste on gauze and taped it to my boils. I also started taking turmeric shots. I put 1/2 T olive oil, 1 tsp turmeric, and 1/4 tsp black pepper in a shot glass, mix it up, and shoot it. I then chase it with hot water sweetened with honey. It's not delicious, but it's totally worth it.

Within hours of trying this, the excrutiating pain in my shoulder that had inhibited my movement and reduced me to tears all day long had receded substantially. I was able to move my arm without severe pain! This boil also had begun oozing. It was already open, but nothing was coming out until I put the turmeric on it. The one on my sternum (the oldest one, 2 weeks old or so, closed, and about the size of halfdollar), hadn't really changed in size, but it didn't hurt, and the biggest one under my arm started draining. I am amazed.

I changed my turmeric bandages about three times yesterday. I took three turmeric shots. It is now the morning, and the one on my sternum has significantly reduced in size. I haven't checked the others yet, but my pain has gone from an 8 to a 3 or 4, which is completely manageable. For the first time in over a week, I didn't wake up in excrutiating pain multiple times throughout the night. Turmeric is a miracle. If you're like me, you're in pain right now, reading all sorts of stuff on the Internet, looking for relief. Maybe you're hesitant to try turmeric because you think it will taste gross, and you don't want to risk staining your skin for something that may not work. I am kicking myself that I didn't try this sooner. I could have felt relief a week ago. I suffered needlessly for too long. What do you have to lose? Try turmeric!

Where do I buy turmeric?

EC: You can find turmeric in the spice section of your local grocery store. International grocery stores sell large bottles of turmeric very cheaply. Organic turmeric can be bought online.

[YEA]  I've been suffering with several staph infections on my scalp for about a year and half. Took antiobiotic after antiobiotic, and saw three dermatologists. Even ended up in the emergency room because I couldn't take the pain anymore.

If you can't stand taking a teaspoon of Turmeric three times a day mixed in water, try making a paste with honey. Better tasting, plus the honey seems to also help. I noticed immediate relief after only one day on this. Wish I would have know about this earlier.

[YEA]  I had mrsa breakout near pubic region. It was painful and I had been on antibiotics before. Antibiotics did treat the outbreak; however, I had stomach problems, rashes (not painful), and sunburn. After a year, I had another episode, and I didn't have healthcare/insurance to see the doctor again, and didn't have the guts to take antibiotics with all its side-effects. I looked up on google about natural remedies, and read about turmeric, garlic, manuka, and ACV on Earthclinic.

In the beginning, I would take turmeric 3 times a day, 1 tsp with milk, and put the garlic clove on the wound. It seemed like turmeric reduced the inflamation as well as the speed of occurence, however, it was not gone completely, there were still some. Garlic just felt too harsh/stinging on my skin.

As I was determined to treat this problem, I decided to increase my dosage of turmeric. I treated it like an antibiotic. Took 4 times a day --1tsp of turmeric with 1 tsp of ACV and 8oz of water to make it more drinkable. I had added turmeric to the milk before but it was slightly difficult to swallow. 10 days have passed, and by the grace of Allah/God, the infection has substantially reduced, and I am pleased to see the results. I also try to take 1tsp of Manuka honey 2X a day. I took bleach baths on regular basis.

Turmeric can also cause some stomach issues, so one has to be patient. It is difficult to take in then an antibiotic, and it takes longer time to affect than an antibiotic. However, it definitely works, and has less side effects, praise God. For those people whom 2 tsp a day of turmeric doesn't work, then they should definitely try to increase their dosage slowly.

I pray that all those who are suffering from this painful disease become healthy, and spend a productive and meaningful life. Best wishes.

[YEA]   Trust me, turmeric works on MRSA! You can drink it, but I also make a turmeric paste (directions can be found at and place it directly on the infected area. The first time I used turmeric was when I had a MRSA infection on my leg. I started getting worried after nearing the end of my 2 week antibiotic treatment that the infection had still not drained (sorry, I know that is gross!! ). I searched the web, found this site and discovered the wonders of turmeric- about two hours after I drank it, the infection started to drain. That was two years ago and I am a huge fan of turmeric now (and an even bigger fan of EC)!!

Being a nurse, I see firsthand the flawed medical model here in the United States. It seems the current trend is... Visit the doctor.... Get a prescription... If that doesn't work... Visit the doctor again... Get another prescription! If that fails... get a referral to a specialist....arrrgh!

We are our own best doctors and I am very grateful to people who know this and share their stories here at this wonderful website.

Ground turmeric 1 tsp twice a day worked to clear up my daughters' rash in only a weeks time! She has been suffering for 6 months from a bumpy flesh colored rash which started on her thighs and buttocks. She saw a doctor 3 times and was given several different prescriptions which didn't help, in fact the rash had spread to her abdomen, chest, arms and scalp. The intense itching was driving her crazy at night. She has tried, oral steroids, steroid creams, antibiotics and many over the counter creams. She swallowed benadryl to help with the itching. She was going to see a dermatologist for a possible biopsy when I discovered this site.

After some investigation and critical thinking, my daughter had suffered boils of her skin in the past few years. MRSA is what was diagnosed. I believe this itchy rash was a form of MRSA. In the medical field it is one of the fastest growing disorders and problems.

I am forever grateful to Earth Clinic and their very awesome homeopathic remedy of turmeric. You have renewed my faith in homeopathic medicine, thank you!!

[YEA]   (yea) If I get stressed enough, I sometimes have a staph infection (MRSA??) that breaks out on my thighs. I have found that turmeric tea and turmeric paste really helped to clear everything up in about 5 days for me. I make a tea by making a turmeric paste. First I heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil with 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper in the microwave. Then stir in enough turmeric to make a paste. Let set, covered, for about an hour. Then to make the tea I use one teaspoon of paste in a 1/4 cup of hot Acai green tea, stir in the teaspoon into the turmeric paste, then add 1 teaspoon of honey stir until dissolved, and then 1/4 cup of soy milk. I like the woody taste of the turmeric.

I would say to folks to start off with small (maybe only the tip of a teaspoon) amounts of turmeric and work your way up to whatever level you are interested in being at. One teaspoon of turmeric yields about 220 mg. (a 1/5 of a gram) of curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric. The black pepper (active ingredient piperine) plus the oil (many folks use olive oil) greatly increase the bioavailabilty of the curcumin. I also use the paste directly on the sores, cover with a bandaid, however I pick clothes that I don't mind staining turmeric yellow.

[YEA]  Thank you so much for this unbelievably simple and wholesome miracle of a treatment! It WORKS with such incredible healing speed that I could actually notice a difference in my MRSA sores within hours, just like was claimed. I've only had MRSA, as far as I know for a few weeks without any idea how I was infected--but I do work with money! The first sore I had, I thought was a pimple and I made the huge error of trying to break and drain it--never do this! It was a horrid, seeping thing and I was in tears... It was just above my collar bone and highly visible. Not only do I work with the public, but I have a wedding to attend this weekend and I was mortified to think I'd be seen by so many people with such an ugly wound on me. Within days of the first one appearing which i'd only been washing with cetaphil and treating with neosporin, a second one appeared on my forehead and I was again in emotional agony. I did not want to be treated by conventional methods--I understand that the treatment can be even more devastating than the infection in many cases--it tears up your immune system, basically.

I was very hopeful when I found your site and read so many encouraging testimonials about the fast results when taking tumeric three times daily for this monster of an infection. I bought ground turmeric right off the grocer's shelf and began taking it the minute I got home. Literally within hours the weeping sore on my collar bone was dry and the sore which hadn't broken the skin on my forehead was practically GONE; just THAT fast!!! I kept up a vigil of cleaning them with the cetaphil and tumeric three times a day disolved in warm water--ten days later, I cannot see where either of the MRSA sores were any longer. And not only did the tumeric work for those sores but it also annihilated a small outbreak of tenacious cystic acne that i'd been trying everything on the drug store shelves to rid myself of for months!!!!

I can't thank Earth Clinic and its contributors enough!!! I can attend my Nephew's wedding this weekend without a worry at all and I'm so grateful for your advice! I reccommend this treatment with the highest praise for Mother Nature herself!

[YEA]  I have been diagnosed as having mrsa and was having a serious problem w/ boils. regular medical help did nothing to alleviate the problem. in looking online, I found sites that suggested using turmeric as a remedy. I didn't have the instantaneous results that some people claim, but it did help. I started by taking a teaspoon in warm water 3 times a day, and as long as I continue to take a teaspoon in warm water each day, my boil problem has ended. thank god for turmeric!!!

tumeric is oil soluable it may improve your results to take it with milk or almond milk if you have dairy issues.

... I agree, add oil like coconut or some milk (for the fat) to the turmeric... But it is also important to add pepper - it helps you absorb it in the gut! :-)

I have been getting mrsa spots for awhile... I've had a couple drained and been on antibiotics. I had a small one appear and started researching because I'm so sick of being on antibiotics. Well, I found this site and went out and bought some of the powder spice turmeric, I have tried to take it with everything... Mixing it in anything I can think of.. And it still makes me gag every time. I just can't stomach it. So, I was considering getting the capsules.

I read your warnings on them, I actually found some at walmart.. And they don't have any of the extra ingredients in them you mentioned. So, I was wondering if these are ok to use instead? I was going to start by taking one 500mg three times a day with meals. I'm fine with the extra cost, because I'd rather pay a few more dollars than gag everytime I try to drink or eat the stuff. So like I said, I'm just curious if this will be as effective as long as it doesn't have those extra ingredients? Also I'm using the actual powder I bought to make the paste to apply to the spots.

One more question, how long should it typically take for it to work? Especially on a smaller one?

Thanks so much!!

I had an ex-fiance that I foolishly gave some curcumin (extract of tumeric) capsules to. He'd been having boils on, in, and around his ears for a year, and he kept asking me for a cure as he knows I am a real fan of alternative medicine.

Unfortunately, it cleared them right up! I let my good nature get the better of me. He really deserved them. Lol

Thanks.. I'm glad to know it worked at least! I've been wondering.. I've been taking 4 500mg capsules.. Through out the day.. I can't take more than 1 at a time or it upsets my stomach too much. Not as bad as the powder mixed in water through. I take 1 with each meal and then 1 with a snack before bed. It still causes a bit of a stomach ache. But not as bad. And I drink a whole bottle of water after each one. So I'm wondering, how long should it take or does it normally take to notice a difference?

The spot that had some stuff coming out of it, seems to be flat and painless.. But still every morning I see a tiny bit come out of it.. Is this normal? It itches though.. Does this mean it's healing?

I have another spot that is just a small hard knot under the skin.. It hasn't broken the skin or anything. It doesn't really seem smaller either though. It's not really painful, I just want to keep it from getting to that point. Yesterday was my first full day of taking it.

I'm nervous, because we leave for our anniversary vacation next Saturday.. and I don't want to be dealing with this.

Although taking turmeric internally is great for, not only the infection, but your immune system, you can also apply it topically. Also, another option is to buy to powder from an ethnic store, very cheap, and put it in capsules yourself! Much cheaper!!

Keep a shaker of Turmeric on the table, Sprinkle on bread or toast, butter over the turmeric and, as turmeric was / used to be, the yellow colouring in butter, there isn't much taste. A sprinkle of sulfer, does no harm either. John

If you sprinkle Turmeric on chicken while cooking it it is really good.... You are still consuming it, just not drinking it.

[YEA]  Hi everyone I am a 29yr old 6'3" 225lb male who is healthy other than my 8yr battle with cultured and confirmed MRSA. I am in utter amazement at the effectiveness of Turmeric at clearing up my most recent outbreak of MRSA on my chin. I have had these outbreaks on and off since 2002. They began on the back of my head in the beggining, always treated with bactrim or ciphro.

Recently I have been getting them on my face and the antibiotics are taking up to 3 ten day rounds to get rid of them. I have been reluctant to move to vanco or anything stronger because of research I have done on this problem. I am afraid of getting immune to every antibiotic and having nowhere to turn if I ever got a possible fatal infection.

Anyway, I am not one to normally turn to herbs as a means of treating illness I guess because normally I have always been healthy and got over things. This battle however has really affected me mentally and phisically as you all know. I poured over these posts on MRSA for about a weekend after being refered by my mother in law. The first and most popular I found was Turmeric. The recent outbreak was a small one on my chin that came up fast from a spot it had previously been, that same night I could feel one starting in between my eyes as well as a sore spot on the side of my head. I knew exactly what was happening and was so sick of this. They are getting more and more networked at this point but not as huge, I guess because I run to the doc and treat them immeadiately now that I know what they are capable of. For me they seem to happen about four times a year mostly when I get worn down.

I began by mixing a tblsp of turmeric in a glass of warm water on Fri morning doing this three times a day. I didnt notice much until Sat afternoon. By Sun night it was apparent that they all were in retreat. Mon morning they were all drying up and going away. I really could not beleive this was working. Like I said eight years of mupriocin in the nose during and after outbreaks with antib's hot showers and compresses all the western med tricks. They would get rid of them but never as fast and they never obviously cured me. So as I set here tonight I am a firm believer in turmeric and will continue to take everyday prob in capsules (check warnings about capsules) for maintenance for the rest of my life. I will continue to update. There is no reason not to try it. I have no noticeable side effects from it. You do want to drink lots of water with it.

Hi all! My dog(and best friend) was diagnosed with MRSA about a year ago. The vet has given him numerous drugs to no avail. After reading your posts, I think I may try Turmeric on him. Any advise about dosage? He's about 70 pounds.

[YEA]   I had the same issue with my dog, but I had just been through it with my daughter. So I immediately knew what to do. I put turmeric in a tablespoon of peanut butter and within 20 minutes the sores would start draining. I continued until they were completely healed. It probably took a couple of weeks. I tried putting turneric on the sores, but that was a mess with a little white dog.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  My husband and I were tested about 2 years ago, they did the nasal test and he actually tested positive for MRSA and I test negative but I had at that time already had one boil but I didn't know what it was. I have continued having these boils coming up on my body for about 2 years now and just like you all I have suffered through the pain and discomfort for weeks at the time. During which I am still trying to have a normal life, well go through the daily process anyway. The DOCTORS are little to no help with this, I don't think they know what to do for MRSA at all. They just want to give antibiotics and an ointment and send you on your way, or lance the damn thing and pack it with gauze which in and of it self is painful but I really don't know if they know how painful these boils actually are to begin with. So with this said I was willing to try anything especially when I woke up this past Monday with my left eye swollen almost shut. It was 5 days before Christmas I needed to work 3 of those days but I just wasn't comfortable going to work like this and with the economy the way it is, it's just not a good time for me to be missing work either.

My husband researched MRSA HOME REMEDY and found all the good things you all were saying about TURMERIC, so he went to the grocery store and got me some in powder form and I started drinking it. The best way I have found for me to take is to mix with Lipton green tea: I put 1 teaspoon in a shot glass with the green tea, I have been doing this 3 times a day since Monday. My eye was swollen bad Monday and Tuesday, not so bad Wednesday, then Thursday not real noticeably at all, Friday just a little swollen where the bump is, and Saturday if there wasn't a small sore you would not even know it was there. Don't want anyone whom is just now reading about this stuff to think it will instantly get rid of these boils but it really does help BIG TIME. All of the other MRSA boils I have had in the last 2 years, for the most part I have popped because that is what I thought needed to be done and they last for at least 2 or more weeks, and when I say they last I mean I am in pain for the better part of 2 weeks, so for the one on my eye to be better in 3 to 4 days it was truly wonderful to me. I will continue drinking TURMERIC, everything I have read says it is good for you, and the benefits of helping with the boils, there is no reason not to. I would Sincerely like to THANK everyone whom posted there comments about TURMERIC, this has helped me and let me know that there are people in this world whom really want to help others.

I have been suffering from staph boils for just under a year now. Like many (I'm sure.... ), I too thought my initial boil was a spider bite. The wound got progressively worse before I finally went to a doctor who swabbed it and confirmed staph- not MRSA, thankfully. I have yet to try drinking turmeric, but I have used grated fresh rhizome mixed in coconut oil and pepper on toast every day for two weeks with no noticable effects. However, I now use TURMERIC ESSENTIAL OIL directly on boils with great results! At the first notice of one, I'll put a few drops on a band aid and keep the boil covered 24/7 until it's gone. For me, depending on what stage I've discovered the boil, it will take about 2-3 days. I change the bandage about every 12 hours and wash the wound with a mixture of Dr. Bronner's soap, apple cider vinegar, and tea tree oil. I highly recommend this, as the oil is quite inexpensive and takes away the pain/pressure of the boil within hours. Quick and cheap fix- but not a cure for recurrent outbreaks. I will update after having experimented with drinking powdered turmeric in milk/water with pepper. Good luck!

[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS]   Update: I started take 3 "00" sized capsules of turmeric and pepper with a spoonful of olive oil a day for about one week. Had to stop, because it brought on menstrual bleeding! Sure enough, turmeric is a natural emmenagogue used in Ayurvedic medicine. I made these pills myself, so they were not packed very tightly, but I would guess I was taking about 2400mg/day. I started taking one pill per day (800mg) because it absolutely worked for staph! I would definitely warn women to be careful. Especially if you're taking turmeric/pepper/olive oil because you will most likely be absorbing all of that.

I am attempting the use of Tumeric for my MRSA boils and am finding it very hard to swallow, pun intended. I have a very sensitive stomach and this stuff is just plain gross. Are there any suggestions as to making it a bit easier to take?

Hi Irisheyes, I make a turmeric tea using 1 teaspoon turmeric, a teaspoon of honey, 1/8th teaspoon of cayenne pepper and either some half and half or coconut milk. I then add hot water and stir. I love drinking this tea. Not only is it healthy but also delicious.

You can buy empty capsules and take turmeric that way. That's the only way I can take it.

Heck - just eat a lot of curries. I think that's the best way to take turmeric. I eat turmeric probably 2x a day at least, averaging around 1 tsp a day. Besan chillas make a great breakfast for example, and it can easily be added to those. Aside from taking it in warm milk when I have a cold, I cannot imagine swallowing it plain.

[WORKED TEMPORARILY]  Tumeric is very good. The first time I used it (orally)the results were immediate and successful. Also oregano oil is very effective (used topically). Unfortunately after using these for over a year they are no longer very helpful.

Posted by Nitehawk (Camp Verde, Arizona, America) on 10/20/2010

I recently used Turmeric mixed with Aloe Vera Gel to cure myself of MRSA. I noticed all of the Gel and about half of the 1/8th teaspoon of Turmeric I applied topically was absorbed into my flesh. I read that Turmeric dissolves more readily in warm fats than any other substance. I would like to try mixing Pressed Virgin Coconut oil with Turmeric for a nice topical skin treat, as opposed to ingesting these wonderful remedies. (Yes, I know Turmeric stains brown, but that's what color I am any way).

My Question is: What is the difference in absorption via ingestion verses topical absorption via skin? I. E. : If I ingest 1/2 teaspoon of Coconut Oil mixed with 1/8 teaspoon Turmeric, am I absorbing the same amount of nutrients & benefits as I do when rubbing 1/2 teaspoonful of coconut oil mixed with 1/8 teaspoon Turmeric into my skin? If not, what is a reasonable ballpark ratio of benefits for ingestion versus topical absorption? Please can anyone help me to understand this? I am so jazzed about finding Earth Clinic. Many Thanks to all who make this website happen!

[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS]  Turmeric for MRSA: Well, I tried 1 tsp in milk 3x daily with meals and then switched to a standardized capsule with meals but within a day my gut was killing me (belching, bloating, flatulence). It may have made the boil on my arm better but I'm still sick and won't be taking the turmeric internally anymore unless I'm really sick. Hope my immune system takes over now.

This gas may have been your body detoxing and breaking down mucousy deposits and or killing candida in you intestines. Turmeric taken internally is a GREAT immunity booster, it would be a shame if others gave up on it because of your experience!
