Please check with your meds if you take them, as there are many meds that conflict with tumeric.

Thank you everyone for your thoughts and experiences. I have been taking turmeric for 1 week. I bought a new pair of shoes 2 weeks ago, and they are so big on my feet, that I almost walk right out of them. I am seeing some definite signs of inflammation coming down in . My Body, I will make another post soon...and update you as I learn from my experience as well!! Blessings to all. Btw, my pain level have dropped some as well...seeing good results for now.

Tumeric is so powerful for taking the inflammation down.

I add tumeric and ginger root to  juice every single day and it feels great.

For weight loss, an overall plan covering all areas of life, will bring one to ideal weight.

It isnt just food or just exercise, there are a host of factors and some started a very long time ago.

When these are all worked out, one at a time, the body heals and lets it go.

Here is my list of tumeric benefits:

*blood purifier

*creates beautiful skin

*counteracts pimples and acne

*natural antiseptic

*antibacterial agent

*combined with cauliflower it has been known to prevent prostrate cancer or stop existing cancer

* prevented breast cancer from spreading in mice

*may prevent melanoma

*natural liver detoxifier

*may prevent or slow alzheimers

*may prevent metastisis from occuring if many forms of cancer

*works as well as many anti-infalmmatory drugs but without side effects.

* has shown promise of slowing the progression of multiple schlerosis

*is a natural pain killer

*may aid in fat metabolism

* has long been used in Chinese medicine as depression treatment

*a natural remedy for arthritis and rheumatoid conditions

*boosts the effects of chemo drug paclitaxel and reduces its side effects

i use the whole root, when I can find it. I learned a lot about it from a FaceBook friend - and I now chew small slices of the root for the health of my teeth and gums, I make tea with it - grated with ginger and hot water poured over (learned that from Dara), I put it into my smoothies or raw soups - it has become a friend!  You can look up turmeric benefits - I'm sure you'll find lots of good information and inspiration.

Just looked it up and Dr. Weil (famous anti-inflammatory doc) recommends whole turmeric over curcumin (spelled it wrong the first time). So maybe you will be good :). I think I will start buying whole turmeric root and a lot more ginger, because I have been noticing when I use ginger root in recipes my arthritis pain does seem to lessen :). And turmeric root is related to ginger root. I bet if we use the whole foods we will get a lot more results than just taking the dried ground spice form :)

I was taking three pills of something called "circumin" (it was supposed to be from turmeric) per day, and to be honest, after over a month of use I found it did absolutely nothing for me. I do use the spice turmeric, and I don't know if it helps or not. Maybe circumin was just a sham. It was a lighter yellow than turmeric is.
