I told you I would follow up as to whether or not turmeric prevented my son from getting whooping cough. I believe it did.
From November to January of this year 9 out of 10 in my household had whooping cough. My 21 year old never did get it. He slept in a room with 2 of his brothers who coughed and whooped all night long. He was definitely thoroughly exposed.
Once I realized what we had, I started to give that son turmeric. (Everyone else was on liposomal C.) 4 capsules of turmeric twice daily for weeks and weeks. When I ran out of turmeric I gave him oregano oil capsules twice a day.
I think it is now safe to say that turmeric did indeed help him. If I were exposed to whooping cough I would definitely take turmeric. (Of course, now I have natural immunity and don't have to worry about it.)
