I’ve been taking turmeric for a while now, to prevent arthritis. I’ve been reading how turmeric also prevents psoriasis flare ups. I wonder how many of us here are taking it?

I’ve been taking turmeric in capsules for over a year, also for arthritis pain...I’m just learning to make kombucha with turmeric root in it...so far, no effect that I can see in my psoriasis...but I’m optimistic...

Hi Rita, I just started taking turmeric a few weeks ago. I am drinking Golden milk, which consists of Turmeric, black pepper, Ashwagandha and coconut. I mix it with coconut milk and warm it up. Very tasty! I think I will also look for a tablet to take :)
24 Mar 23:21
I do Rita. Not alot in cooking but it's in my Kombucha I make now. I only take it now because it's good for me but my arthritis is gone. I hope it works for you.

Can I ask a personal question please? Does Turmeric make your pee smell weird?
25 Mar 00:52
I’ve been taking it in capsule format but Michelle’s golden milk suggestion sounds like something I could try
25 Mar 01:21
Yes...it does make your pee smell weird...lol...
25 Mar 01:32
It was a pleasant surprise when I found it Rita, very tasty. Its like a latte 😊

Started yesterday and have noticed a big difference in the itch already

Me too like Michelle I drink golden milk or turmeric tea almost daily. I've been doing that for almost 4 months now, and I do think it helps as I saw improvements in my skin even before making the more drastic diet changes I have made since then. I used to make the tea from scratch every other day and refrigerate it, but in the last month I started making turmeric paste (turmeric cinnamon water black pepper) which keeps around 2 weeks in the fridge and using that each day to make up the tea or golden milk. It doesn't make my pee smell weird! 😉

Hi Rita. I have been drinking 1 teaspoon turmeric powder in a glass of water for a couple of days now and it does wonders for my P.

I've been making pineapple, ginger, turmeric kombucha for over a year and have recommended turmeric to many on here since I went into remission last summer. I believe it is most effective when taken with black pepper and when it is fermented. I juice it from raw root. There are four things I pay attention to that I believe keep me in remission. Good vitamin D3 levels preferably obtained through sun exposure, but supplementing also, Omega 6/3 ratio, Omega 3 index, and daily dose of fermented turmeric with peppered food.

Hi Steve, I've also added black pepper to my turmeric but I'm not sure if it's working.
22 May 14:55
I added black pepper and that or the lemon is working... Been making so much changes at once that I'm not really sure what works. But it works!

Hey Ruben, good to see you!
23 May 01:43
I take capsules with the black pepper already mixed in for over 3 yrs now, and the arthritis hasn't come back! Also in combination with raw apple cider vinegar my daily itchiness is minimal 😁
23 May 06:20
Wonderful news Ruben! Ok so it's black pepper and lemon Flaymers! lol. Glad you're seeing results Ruben.

Haven't been online as much lately, some changes going on... Stress but no real flare, just an attempt-to-flare...
Guess it's the combination of adding moringa and using lemons that help :)
22 Jul 15:32
I have just bought some fresh turmeric from my local Chinese supermarket as I heard it has many benefits!
22 Jul 15:34
I also use coconut milk and oil in my morning smoothie.
I also use the oil on my body where there is Psoriasis IT IS AMAZING!
22 Jul 15:35

I use "Vimerson turmeric and ginger" (Google it) and it works very well for me. I would provide the link but the comment button turns off when I tried to share the website.
24 Oct 07:44
pm me the link ;) it works there

Turmeric is very good i use it a lot , always remember you use it with black pepper the 2 work hand in hand and you get the most out of the turmeric, something encase some people didn't know

True Peter. I drink turmeric most mornings, eat it in my food and I haven't had any stiff or painful fingers in months. By managing my P and PSA, I try to manage the inflammation
