Not sure if this topic has been discussed before but has anyone had any good experiences using turmeric?

RSE quite a few people swear by it.

Thanks Susan. I've read that if you want to drink it, you need to add pepper to it so it'll absorb properly. Or is just easier to take it in pill form? Anybody who has used it want to chime in?

I've been taking turmeric for about 3 yrs, I started with it in my tea, and added black pepper. It stains and is gritty tea with the pepper tho. It started as a way to eleaviate my psoriatic arthritis in my knees, elbows, and lower back all hurt so bad all the time. It worked so well I stick with it so it dosent come back and I take the capsules now since the pepper is already mixed in.

Also as an anti-inflammatory I drink raw Apple cider vinegar daily I believe the combination of the two has really helped to keep that itch away and not flare as much or often.

@jujubee how much vinegar? And do you mix it with water?

Hey RedSpot, been taking vitamine D/curcumin supplements for little over 3 weeks now. The effects are great, just hope they last. Had some experiences in the past where something works, but only for a few weeks, so still on the lookout.

Hi RSE, yes I had really good results from introducing an anti-inflammatory juice (carrot, apple/pear, beetroot and fresh ginger) every day, along with a up of turmeric tea every day (tumeric powder, cinnamon powder, cloves, green cardamom pods and fresh ginger slices with a crack of black pepper - the other spices are just for flavour and pleasure!) No other diet changes for about a month or so and still the results were great. Less angry plaques. So I carried on with more diet changes. Still adding more changes in all the time!

@Louise I put 1 tablespoon in 8 oz of water 3 times a day. Or I make a morning drink with green tea, 2T acv, 2T lemon juice, 1/2 t cinnamon, and 1T raw honey. It's pretty good. Also make sure it's the raw Apple cider vinegar "with the mother" 😊

Sarah I'm not a juicer, but that one sounds good!
Jennifer that tea sounds good too and I don't care much for tea.

I started to take turmeric - my derm told me its a good anti inflammatory but to be careful with alcohol as is can affect your liver - hmmm wine or turmeric lol

I’ve cut out a lot of things for psoriasis and to be healthier but would really like to keep my wine!
12 Jan 13:53
Rita that wine is awesome. I can have wine now but am not much of a drinker anymore. Used to drink alot! LOL. I think it's fine and guess what. Once you get to the end of the elimination diet, try that first glass of wine without consequence then maybe wine is ok. Apparently they have it in France everyday?? Wonder what the percentage of psoriasis sufferers are there over the rest of the world?

Hey Susan, I'm from Belgium, not everyone in France has wine everyday :) But I'm sure they consume more per person than any other country ;)
Here in Belgium we have that with beer... And waffels... And chocolate...
12 Jan 14:53
Ruben that's funny. I guess beer is kind of universal. Lot's of beer gets consumed here too. I haven't had waffles for years! Never did care for chocolate. Mom women love chocolate! Most people for that matter. LOL. I thought France was the wine capitol of the world? I guess we learn something new everyday!
15 Jan 08:20
Hey Susan, France is probably still wine capitol of the world, but a lot of countries produce great wines too. Same as Belgium and beer, a lot of countries have great beers, but I still think Belgium has the best ones, even if I don't drink them anymore. I guess every region has it's own drink/food that they make for years and years. Other countries might take it over, but the expertise only comes after years...
