Has anyone found Tumeric (curcumin) beneficial for bringing down the inflammation?

Hi Linda,

There have been some some discussions about it in the past, and as I recall the consensus was that it might help, but it would probably be necessary to eat more than most people would be able to force themselves to eat in order to derive any significant benefits. Boswellia serrata seems to have the same problem. One of the problems with B. serrata is that enough to provide any benefits costs a lot of money.

Linda
keep in mind with anything like this, that symptoms getting worse at first is not always an indicator that it is not working

if after 7 days things are still worse I would stop it.

Hi Linda,

I don't tolerate it in pill form however I tolerate it used as a spice. When I remember I sprinkle it on my sweet potatoes with a little black pepper as an alzheimers preventative/inflammation reducer.

PostPosted: Tue Mar 15, 2016 10:25 am    Post subject: Turmeric "Golden Paste" Reply with quote

Hello, I am a new member and I have just begun taking turmeric in powder form, mixing it with water, simmering for 7 mins, then mixing with organic extra virgin coconut oil and freshly ground black pepper; this recipe is referred to as "golden paste"...I am reading that it is suppose to be a super anti-inflammatory for humans, dogs, cats and horses! I've just begun taking it, along with giving to my dogs and have started with 1/4 tsp 3x a day and will try to work up to 1 tsp 3x a day. If anyone has tried this and can't get past the taste (bitter), you can pour into a silicone candy mold mat, the openings are 1/4 tsp size, and freeze, or add to food or liquid. I am very hopeful this is going to help with arthritis, MC, and any other inflammation going on in my body (cardiac, brain, etc)

Much is written about Tumeric and its benefits so I have also taken a serious look at it for daily use.

After coming off my NSAID in September 2015 I was prepared to try just about anything. I believe the secret to success with Tumeric is in the preparation before eating. Tumeric must be heated in some sort of oil or fat, I use ghee. Once the Tumeric is well heated in the ghee I add in the black pepper which is supposed to activate and make the Tumeric much more potent. Here is the link to the recipe I use which includes fresh ginger and Manuka honey. The Manuka honey must not be heated, I add it to each cup as I need it.
http://nourishedkitchen.com/golden-tea-turmeric...tea-coconut-milk/

I add Tumeric prepared above into at least one meal a day for myself and I also make up a couple of quarts of Golden Tea which sits in the fridge ready when I need it. I make my Golden Tea with almond milk.

At the time I came off the NSAID I also started taking 15gr Kosher Collagen (beef based) in my black coffee twice a day and began making regular batches of beef broth made from pasture fed lambs and beef. I now have noticed that with regular use of Collagen, Tumeric and beef broth I have huge improvements with my joints and arthritis. I can't prove anything of course but the improvement is definitely there and my family have noticed that my skin looks better and hair looks better and I look much younger than I did a year ago.

I'm not recommending anyone follows the above regime, but it works for me.

i have been 'normal' and without any symptoms for at least 6 months. i was diagnosed 1 1/2 years ago and, after losing 10 pounds and eliminating gluten...began a slow recovery. with the exclusion of gluten, i have been eating and drinking with little discretion. two weeks ago, out of the clear blue, i had a relapse of my MC. now, with the phase one diet, my symptoms are beginning to resolve. i have been taking turmeric as a supplement for many months and have tolerated it well...just recently suffered a relapse of my MC. i suspect it was either the gin and tonic, the wine, one indiscreet oatmeal raisin cookie, the fig sauce, the red licorice or an accumulation of all of the above! since spices are contraindicated, does anyone know if turmeric in tablet form could contribute? i've continued it and, since i'm improving, doubt that that's the culprit, but wanted some affirmation...thank you.

Hi,

Welcome to our Internet family. As far as I'm aware, unless there are other ingredients in that tablet that are contraindicated, turmeric in tablet form should be OK. That said, it's certainly not impossible that it could cause problems because not everyone can tolerate turmeric supplements. Turmeric can cause problems for someone who has gallbladder problems, or diabetes, or takes a blood thinner or an antacid or a PPI. But those are not necessarily MC-associated issues.

Your relapse might have been due to any of the items you mentioned, or it might have been due to the gradual decline in antibodies against gluten that eventually allows the immune system to begin noticing other food sensitivities. For example you might be sensitive to the casein in all dairy products (similar to most of us here) or soy, and your immune system took a few months to recognize that because it was still concentrating on the gluten antibodies.

Anti-gliadin (gluten) antibodies are very slow to decay. They have a half-life of 120 days. Most other food antibodies have a half-life of approximately 5–6 days. Because of that, gluten sensitivity tends to dominate the immune system, and many MC patients find that after reaching remission on a GF diet, they may relapse a few months later as their immune system begins to identify other food sensitivities in their diet.

Again, welcome aboard and please feel free to ask anything.

Tex

i am just finding my way through the discussion boards but am so grateful for all light shed on this condition. i've yet to be able to ascertain the cause and, you're right, the drs seem to just shrug their shoulders and attribute it to "we just don't know" or, get this, "things change as you age". coming from a nursing background, i find their ignorance hard to stomach - no pun intended. i appreciate the insight found here. i'm being squeaky clean for a bit to allow my system to sort things out. thank you, again. it's good to be here. now how to i change that avatar - i have nothing to do with canada (not that there's anything wrong with that).

I hear you. 15 years ago I had bad arthritis symptoms (along with all the miserable GI symptoms) but naturally my doctors attributed the arthritis to "getting older". After I changed my diet, the arthritis faded away (along with the other symptoms), and "getting older" no longer seems to be a problem. Very Happy Many of the issues attributed to "old age" or "getting older" are due to chronic vitamin or mineral deficiencies (such as Vitamin D, magnesium, and in some cases, B-12) which can eventually lead to various autoimmune-type diseases and food sensitivities.

After you're back in remission and confident that your digestive system is stable again, you can test foods back into your diet, one at a time for about 3 days, and if a food doesn't cause any issues within 3 days it can usually be assumed to be safe.

The system automatically assigns an avatar if one is not selected. You can go into your profile and select a different avatar, or upload an avatar, or a photo for an avatar. If you prefer a photo, and you can't get the system to accept it (the image file has to be 6 Kb or less), you can attach an image file to an email and send it to me and I'll be happy to resize it and turn it into an avatar and upload it for you. You can send me an email by clicking the "email" button at the bottom of this post.

You're very welcome. We appreciate you joining us.
