[YEA]  I began getting increased trouble with acne rosacea flares (this is quite a different condition from acne vulgaris/teenagers acne). The flares were happening despite my already taking fish oil and an antibiotic ointment from the dermatologist did not help much. Then, I read in the news that acne rosacea is caused by a build up of inflammatory by products in the skin.

At once, I thought of using turmeric. I mixed turmeric spice with water and dabbed it on my flare spots. I had to scrub hard to remove it next day as it stains the skin, but 3 days later, my flare spots were gone. I take 1 teaspoon of turmeric in water each day, internally.

Then, I had to have a dental procedure where they had to do a lot of digging around in the gum to install a temporary crown. I was told my gums would feel sore and to take some ibuprofen. Instead, I swirled turmeric in my mouth after brushing my teeth, letting it reach all my gums, then swallowed it. I did this every night for the next 3 weeks. I had no gum pain at all and when I returned to have the crown installed, the dentist was amazed at how healthy my gums were. I told him I'd used turmeric.

Warning---turmeric stains white cloth and clothing, and it will probably stain artificial dental implants and dentures. But if you have all your teeth and want something extra for healthy gums, turmeric is amazing stuff. Warning..it may constipate in considerable dosages so if you have to use a lot of it, increase both fluid and fiber intake.

[YEA]  Turmeric helped shrink a terrible bone bruise on my shin. I started taking turmeric to help my joints -- I'm not sure it is helping with that yet -- but it has helped shrink and reduce the swelling of the worst bruise. On the day before Father's day this year, my horse slipped in a creek, landed on my leg and then stood up on my leg! Ouch! Nothing was broken and after a few weeks most of the black and blue color disappeared from my foot and leg. All around my lower shin bone there was tenderness and a hard swelling (about 3 inches in diameter all around the damaged area) and this has persisted until the last few weeks when I upped my turmeric intake. The hard swelling has almost disappeared and the tenderness has decreased also. I have been taking three 500mg capsules twice a day for about two weeks now.

[YEA]  I've had great success with turmeric to stop wounds from bleeding. If you catch a slice by the kitchen knife quick enough, the blood will coagulate behind a layer of turmeric. I also add turmeric to a warm water soak with sea salt or epsom salt to draw out infection/inflammation from wounds for my family. I treated our dog's copper head bite with a turmeric poultice. Her leg was swollen and the skin around the 2 puncture wounds was necrotic and oozing and after many soaks and poultices, it healed leaving no scar.

[YEA]  I was diagnosed with MS in 2001 and it been a living nightmare. I did some research and I found Turmeric on the internet. I went to Outpost health store in Milwaukee. I am really shocked at my symptoms. They are not as bad as they were before. I am working out everyday and not having as many relapses as before. I feel better then every. I though a few months ago I was heading for a wheelchair. I take it with Organic Carrot Juice in the morning and occassionally I have it in some bottle water a few days a week. It works.

[YEA]  I tried the recipe for turmeric tea with ginger and my sciatic pain subsided within a few minutes, not kidding! I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I had powdered turmeric but didn't have the powdered ginger so I used fresh ginger and no lemon. I microwaved the water in a Pyrex measuring cup along with the sliced ginger pieces, then added the turmeric and maple syrup, strained and drank. I didn't make it per cup as the recipe, but it worked. I will drink this every morning, as it is very difficult to get out of bed. I am so jazzed about this, woo hoo!

My husband had his sciatica pain gone in few minutes after eating ginger by itself (candidized or powdered). He never tried turmeric, but probably both act anti-inflammatory.

[YEA]  Fortunately I have been aware and using remedies from your web site for nearly a yaar. A friend asked what could be done to eliminate diarrhea and I searched earthclinc and fourn turmeric. Upon reading further, I discovered some additional benefits. Most notably after taking less than a tsp the first night, I did not feel drowsy druing the evening. After taking it for three days I noticed a significant reduction in my usual body aches. This is a marvelous site. I've been using herbs since 1971 and this is one of the best resources.

The ayurvedic recipe for turmeric tea should NEVER use honey. Ayurvedic texts warn that heating honey has a very detrimental effect on the human body that lasts for decades. Never use honey that has been heated and never cook with or put honey in anything warmer than your body temperature.

[YEA]  Just wanted to add that turmeric is used in India on infants as well with good results. Babies are regularly bathed with turmeric paste to prevent infections (not on the head though, since it prevents hair growth). The quality of the turmeric must be checked though and the infant's skin watched carefully the first few days after using. A harmless side effect is that it colors the skin/nails for a while. A pinch is also put on the baby's tongue and used to clean it.

Some where on here, I read a post that said turmeric inhibits hair growth. When trying to find it....I'm wondering if earthclinic deletes comments after so long...maybe I missed it. I would just like to know where the poster got her information from..or anyone else that can give me information...so I can research this on my own. Thank you.

[YEA]  Ailment: Woke up one morning, my arm was almost limp, it hurt to pick it up, no strength, could not hardly pick up anything, felt like it was swollen inside. Went to doc, he put me on Vioxx, started taking them then heard of all the bad side affects, called a Naturopathic Doc, Doctor Charles Rouse, Columbus GA, he told me about several ingredients, including Turmeric, so I went to the health food store and bought REMEDY: Turmeric Special Formula because it had several of the items he mentioned I needed in it. I then made a tea of it, and put local tupelo honey in it drank it every day and in several days my symptoms were totally gone and has never came back, The only thing about taking a capsule and making in into a tea is there are granules left, you can either drink them or strain them, I drank them for a while, then I started straining them (do not boil the turmeric in the water, or you will lose some of it medicinal effects) boil or heat the water first then put the turmeric special formula in it like you would if you were making a cup of tea, add honey to taste, then drink it while it is warm, You can find the formula I sure several places but this is the brand I used http://vitanetonline.com/description/3802/vitamins/Turmeric-Special-Formula/.

[YEA]  After taking turmeric, 1/4 heaping tsp, and then stopping, I realized that the eczema on my palms had disappeared and then returned when I quit taking the turmeric. I resumed and it's been gone ever since.

[YEA]  i tried taking powder of turmeric -- it has been a great thing for the skin and my menopause symptoms are going smooth. Turmeric is best of all the spices -- good for all the ailments basically inside the body and physically also.

[YEA]  I have essential thrombocythemia and am using turmeric to reduce platelet count with good results. As an added side effect, I have found that it reduces body fat. I take three 400 mg capsules three times a day. I find it best to take with food as it can cause minor stomach burning.

My doctor's office called yesterday and told me to purchase Lumberkinase. No, I had never heard of it either. I have"sticky blood and type 2 diabetes, which I just got under control with tumeric and Glucose Optimizer. There is bitter melon in there. My blood has too much fibrin. Lumberkinase is made from earth worms.. Yes you heard me right. They are enzymes from the earth worm and they eat up the fibrinogen problem and cure the sticky blood. It will prevent thrombosis. It disolves blood clots naturally within a few hours.

Anyone who's doctor has recommended coumadin or warfarin should look into this.

For its variuos health benefits, I've been interested in taking Tumeric (curcumin) in capsule form, but found I was allergic to it. But, recently found a particular Tumeric capsule that I am not allergic to and find that it seems to minimize inflammation due to a lower disk problem. The recommended dose is 1 capsule with food per day. I would like to possibly take 2 capsules per day. Does anyone have experience with taking more than the recommended dose of 1 cap/day?

Here's a description of the product (without indicating a brand name or manufacturer):

Each capsule contains 400 mg. Of the following -

(Curcuma longa)25:1 extract (root)std. to 95% total curcuminoids ComplexWith Essential oils of Turmeric Rhizome by HPLC (380mg)

This 400 mg product is said to be equivalent to 2772 mg of a typical 95% curcumin extract based on its improved absorption.

Is anybody familiar with the Turmeric product I described? If so, your comments including the use of more than 1 capsule per day would be greatly appreciate. Also, comments about the health benefits you derived from using such a Turmeric product would be of interest.

[NAY]   "I had been taking the same capsules as Larry - 1 a day and the first time I took them, I had terrible diarhoea. I stopped and did a bit of liver flushing more mildly. Then I resumed taking them. My RA and Osteo arthritis pain increased after a week or so. I stopped them and gradually my pain reduced. I waited a long while and started taking them again. I have been taking them for 2 and a half weeks and there is pain all over my body. I don't know if it is the turmeric essential oil. Perhaps it is too strong. I will stop taking them now. I will go back to Boswellia with curcumin. That product worked. After two months my pain decreased wonderfully and there was no general all over pain like there is with this product. It was an expensive waste of time. Jenny UK
