summer I began getting boils, first a large carbuncle on my left hip which was a series of 7 (!) boils, I went to the doctor for two rounds of antibiotics. I got three more, each lower than the last down my leg, and after the last one on my knee found this site and started taking the turmeric. I haven't had one for a month, but a few days ago i got another one, this time on the right side of my ribcage. I have been taking turmeric, putting tea tree oil and neosporin on it, and it is definitely way smaller and less painful than the others, but still a boil. I am so frustrated, but have not gone back to the doctor for antibiotics this time. I am hoping it will go away quickly, but it appears to have gotten stlightly worse, although not golf ball sized. I plan to keep up with the turmeric and direct applications and will see how long it takes. Any futher suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I have been suffering from boils on my face on and off since I was a teenager, and there has never been anything that could be done except wait for them to go down. They have been so bad that I don't want to leave the house. With a new one on my forehead that was growing and becoming extremely painful, I thought I would do some research to see if there was any kind of heat treatment that would help. I found this website, and tried the turmeric treatment. It is the second day and the boil has come to a head. This never happened before. I would squeeze and puncture the area, but nothing ever came of it. Thank you so much for sharing this safe, easy, and cheap remedy that really works! Now I don't have to look like the elephant man for the next two weeks!

... Last year I started to get boils about three to four a month. Started to take turmeric (capsul form)it took care of the boils. I've been taking one capsul every day since and not had any outbreaks until I take a break for a few days from all supplements, vitamins and the turmeric. I then feel a boil coming on and resume my regimine and feel fine after a couple of days.

I was stricken by a dormant boil/stapf infection (on the side of my nose) last year, went to the doctor, took a course of antibiotics. It got smaller, but never totally went away. A few days ago, it came back with a vengeance after the first appearance of the rainy season. It got hot, red, swollen, and painful. I freaked out because I do not like to use antibiotics unless absolutely life or death necessary. I immediately did a search for a home remedy, and the consensus seemed to e turmeric. I was skeptical initially, but desperation won out. I made turmeric capsules, and popped one ASAP. I noticed the redness and 'heat' subsidided in a few hours. It started draining at night, I put a fresh aloe vera leaf on the raw part, and smeared that with turmeric, too. I kept taking the turmeric capsules with my three meals a day, and today 9day three), it is almost completely healed. I am excited about this, but concerned about the most effective way to prevent future outbreaks without resorting to an extremely bleak diet. I eat healthy, organically, with an emphasis on maintaing alkalinity (organic cultured yogurt, kombucha tea, white tea, golden seal). I do eat crap once in a blue moon, and I am happy about the results of this turmeric. Rock on with your frock on.

I recently tried treating a boil I have with tumeric by use one tsp in my white tea with honey before bedtime. I also made tumeric paste with baking soda 1 tbs tumeric and 2 tsps. of baking soda. I put the paste on a bandaid overnight and the boil that was almost and inch almost completely disappeared. Today I ate some M & M candy with peanuts, This evening I felt my boil flare up a little. I just read now someone specified do not eat chocolate and nuts...I believe it is a no no. Especially if you are trying to eliminate a boil.

I had a boil that came up on Friday and I wasn`t sure what it was, I did`nt mess with it for a day then it started getting bigger and hurting worse, well, I thought it might be a cyst,I only had one boil before and that was when I was an early teenager.So I looked up cyst and it also said it could be a boil,so I am allfor home remedies,and found this site for boils,well I tried the tomato,did`nt work,tried the garlic,went everywhere to find drawing salve and couldn`t find none,So I went and bought the Tumeric and I drink one glass of it,yuck!So I put tumeric,baking soda,and neosporin ,made a paste like on gauze and kept it on there after 1 day it started draining and now on the 3rd. day of my paste the pain is gone,a little bit of the core is still there ,but I put more on and hope it will be out by morning.My hubby also had gotten a boil and he thought he could squeeze it out and take bleach baths ,well now his have grown in size and spread he has about 2 big ones and 4 small ones, and he is now taking my advice on the Tumeric,We also had some of the spice in some Vegetable Soup. This is the best remedy and I am so glad I found it Thank You So Much Earth Clinic!!!Keep up the good work ,anything is better than paying Dr`s high prices.

Thank you so much for creating the best website i have ever found!! A couple of months ago i was struck with a boil which grew to the size of half a walnut, located smack bang in the middle of my back. I visited the chemist who recommended a drawing salve which i applied religiously twice daily with clean dressings, nothing happened except the boil grew bigger and more painful until it was the size of half a golfball. This was so painful i could not sit and lean on a seat with a back on it, could not lie on my back at all making trying to get to sleep a very painful and tearful process and had to drive my car in a very strange and uncomfortable position as not to let my back touch the carseat. In complete desperation I searched the internet for a natural cure, which i trust in far more than anything a doctor would prescribe. I came across this amazing site and read all about the turmeric cure. It sounded pretty good and I had nothing to lose by giving it a try, except that is for my boil. The results were completely amazing. I decided to try and really blast this boil away. On the first night i drank two glasses of water with two teaspoons of turmeric dissolved in each. Well the next morning i didnt know if i was awake or still dreaming, the boil had lost its redness, seemed to be less swollen and was no longer painful to touch. I continued the turmeric, taking a glass of water with 1 to 2 teaspoons of turmeric three times a day, morning, noon and night. By day 3 the boil had shrunk to half its size and had begun to leak out, within a weak it was nothing but a small raised lump of normal looking skin, and at the end of two weeks of taking turmeric it was completely gone, with no sign of it ever being there, no scar, nothing. I was so happy, i could finally be free to sit, lie and move around as normal, and man it felt good. I stopped taking the turmeric and began living my life again. Then two weeks ago i noticed a lump beginning on my collarbone, hoping it would go away i ignored it but it grew into a boil about 2cm long, 1 cm wide and half a cm high and was getting painful. Well, i reached into the back of the pantry where the leftover turmeric had sat since my last boil and made myself a glassful (the night before last). The next morning i swear it had shrunk to half the size. I continued with 3xdaily turmeric and this morning there was only a slight raised area which is not red or painful. At this rate it will be gone in a day or two and i will be able to wear the nice tops i bought especially for the festive season celebrations without embarrassment. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for this great site which has cured me in such a quick, healthy, painless and inexpensive way. If only there wasnt so much money to be made by drug companies maybe these natural remedies would be more widely promoted. Once again i thank you from the bottom of my heart and hope that other sufferers will also benefit from the wisdom of this site. I am today starting on another suggestion i have read about on your site, apple cider vinegar, which i hope will have a good result on acne, will let you know, cheers.

Turmeric Cured boils Had a boil up near the Anal entry (Its VERY UNCOMFORTABLE) and read you need surgery to make it disappear. I thought no way must be another way to make it go away. Stumbled across this site and found turmeric can help. I put turmeric in water about 2 teaspoons for 2 weeks and now its gone! Thanks for this website I know it has helped alot of people including myself. PEACE

I cannot believe this actually is working. I assumed the large lump near my elbow was a boil; it had not come to a head. I used a 1/2 a tbsp of tumeric in water, as I had a cold & a fever & was hoping to knock those out too. Approx 6 hours later the boil is much smaller! (I also applied it topically). I didn't believe I would see results this fast. I am amazed. Oh, & the fever, which previously wouldn't break, was gone in about an hour.

WOW. The Turmeric powder works wonders! The end of October I had to go to the doctor for a very large boil on my groin. It left a hole the size of a golf ball. I then went to a surgeon who gave me bacton (the nose antibiotic.), hibicleanse (sorry not sure how to spell these words). The doctor took a culture of the boil and it came back not as a staph infection. I was on amoxcilion to treat the infection. Well, two nights ago I notice another boil forming in the exact same spot! My birthday is on Saturday and Christmas is comming! I did not want to have to go to the doctor again!I Got on the internet and found the website and immediately bought Turmeric powder. I bought it in the evening so I only took 2 tsp of it. I woke up in the morning and the boil was almost 0.00 gone. Today it is gone and the scars from the previous boils I have had look a lot better. I will keep you posted if anything changes. God's Blessings!

I used turmeric to treat a case of reoccurring boils in my armpit. I had been to the doctor twice for this and was given erythromycin (sp?) both times, but the boils kept coming back. I decided to go try the natural route and found that turmeric caused the boil to drain completely on its own within two days of taking it three times a day. It's been nearly a week now & the firmness where the boil used to be is quickly disappearing as well. No need to go to a doctor and have the boil painfully cut open and drained & no need for antibiotics. Turmeric is superior to anything that my doctor did for me.

Wow Outstanding Turmeric spice cured my sons boils. our children have been getting boils on and off for two years and when one gets a boil they all get them within a week. I tried the Turmeric spice like in your web site a teaspoon in warm water three times a day and i was amazed the three boils were half the size by 24 hrs and two boils were gone in two days and the third boil which was about 3 inches in size took three days. No other children got them and they have all fully healed. I am now giving all my children a dose of Turmeric just to clean up there blood. Thank you so much for your website.

I developed a large boil under my armpit. It grew to the size of a quarter. It was big, red and painful. I first tryed the turmeric powder in juice but that was too much and the taste was strong and not pleasant, so I switced to the 450mg tabs three times a day. I'm happy to say my boil is almost healed. I also used neosporin ointment to help with infection. ' There is a lot you can do but the turmeric is key. Thank goodness I found this site. YOU ARE SO APPRECIATED!"

Thank You so much this Turmeric is a spice from heaven. My husband and I have been fighting staph for almost a year and Turmeric is the cure. We have spent I know over $3,000 on doctor visits for lancing and antibiotics. I slacked off the Turmeric for a few days and I the little red bumps started to appear. I will never stop taking my herbs and vitamins again. Thanks Again!
