Treatment

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 :)

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?


Rita
Rita @rita

I’ve been taking it in capsule format but Michelle’s golden milk suggestion sounds like something I could try


Judi

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.


Michelle

Hi Steve, I've also added black pepper to my turmeric but I'm not sure if it's working.


Ruben
Ruben @ruben

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!

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 😁


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Wonderful news Ruben! Ok so it's black pepper and lemon Flaymers! lol. Glad you're seeing results Ruben.


Ruben
Ruben @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 :)

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


Michelle

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

I'm most happy when I'm plucking weeds in my gardens. I'm a sun worshiper. I've had psoriasis since I was born and usually it's mild unless stressed.
