Secrets, travel, strangers

Now that I have joined, waffled and read comments within this awesome group, I now have a question. I know turmeric is a spice and often turns rice yellowish, but how does it benefit a person with ps. Is it something you digest/rub on? Does it work?

If you go to YouTube and search on "Nutrition", pick Nutrition 101 with Dr Mike. It's an excellent 30 minute video on general healthy nutrition. At 21.12 minutes, he gives a good explanation of the benefits of turmeric, or to be more accurate, curcumin, which is the payload in turmeric. I do recommend the whole video though, you'll learn some good stuff, and for the record, I cross checked what he says with my GP.

Hello Glenn. You can use ground turmeric or fresh root in your cooking or drinks. You can make what's called a Golden Paste to use instead. There's also Turmeric/curcumin tablets you can take as a supplement. This all helps to combat inflammation.

Turmeric helps a lot of us here but apparently not good if you have high blood pressure.

I don't use turmeric on my skin but I do cook with it and use it in drinks sometimes. I used to drink turmeric tea or golden milk daily. But now I don't so often... Just when I remember!

I just made a pot of vegetable soup and added a teaspoonful along with the black pepper. On the PB thing, this is where I get confused. I mentioned turmeric to my doc and she said it's all good, but I have high blood pressure, or I would have with my daily meds.

I dont have high blood pressure, but I do have thinned blood due to anurysms and clots in both legs

I had a TIA 5 years ago so I try to look after myself now. I've been using turmeric in smoothies for a while and now in soup, really gave it depth of flavour by the way. Probably best run it by your GP though given what Jen said. I'll specifically ask my doc on my next visit.

In 2005 I climbed a mountain to enjoy a beer with a pagan god statue, it was in the middle of winter, exhaustive but great fun.
