Tumeric will clean your liver and kidneys

Recommended Posts

When I was researching turmeric/curcumin for possible addition to an already low-inflammatory diet (a diet which so far seems helpful in managing my osteoarthritic hip and my inflammatory-inspired chest condition, bronchiectasis) the closest I could find to what seemed a balanced piece of research was this:

 

http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/mic/dietary-factors/phytochemicals/curcumin#drug-interactions

 

It comes from the website of one of the most expensive supplements widely marketed on the internet (which I don't take since a product almost one-third the price seems to suit) and I do not know whether the particular research centre was 'sponsored' by them to produce it, but it does seem to be quite open about the unproven nature of some of the claimed benefits and anyone anticipating taking turmeric/curcumin should read the section 'Safety' IMO - particularly if you are taking any other drugs.

 

Too early for me to detect any additional anti-inflammatory benefits for my lungs and hip-joints. I have taken it for only 2 months and would probably only have a useful indication to share if I continue for another 3 or 4 (because of my conviction that my diet is a big factor) and then cut the curcumin out in the interests of self-research. Self-testing over time and scepticism is the way to go for all drugs and alternatives IMO! Other people's experiences/claims are useful pointers but one's body is a unique and complex chemistry.

 

I did however notice an immediate effect of curcumin on blood flow to my penis! Was unaware of this potential when taking it and it seems to have died away slightly (boosted again when I had to buy a slightly more expensive concentrated curcumin in a health shop on a UK visit), but I estimate equivalence to about 25mg of sildenafil and a constant effect when taken at recommended dosage, whether once-a-day or twice/thrice.

Forget about that crazy person. Sounds like he has roots to Big Pharma. (Chinese medisine and Herbs came long before Big Pharma tried to shut down all Herbs and supplements & minerals). This thread is about getting healthy with Tumeric. I read 2 days ago an article proving Tumeric can cure Type 2 diabetis. Search it, sorry, lost my link. 

Yes, tumeric is very orange, same as pumkin here in Thailand. Must be rich in beta's.  Yes, you can detox and when you use too much alcohal, or Big Pharma poison meds, or get too much Gylsophate (Monsantos weed killer & pesticide) in your system, you need to use something naturally strong like Tumeric. Yes, the kidneys and liver are like "filters & screens" but when  they get over powered by too much toxins, then they can "shut down". Tumeric is like calling in the Navy Seals to do a clean-up. So eat it, juice it and anything else you like,  its all for your better health.

Anybody going on about "Big Pharma" and claiming that Google is trying to "shut it down" has, IMO, no credibility at all.
Google is a search engine, period. You can post any BS you want, as long as it is not illegal (trademark violation, e.g.) or blatantly false and harmful, like recommending that people take arsenic would be a probable no no.

My info comes from those like Health Ranger. He tells the truth, thats why Google is trying to take him down. So..I don't Google important stuff.

Horse pucky. The site was (temporarily) taken down for violating rules relating to redirect techniques. The rules are published and you have to sign that you have read and will comply.
A Google webmaster violation is the reason this website was penalized by Google, not its controversial nature.
"Natural News" is, in my opinion, a crock of baloney, and probably should be permanently banned.

Update to my 13-April post above.

 

I think that i-herb's problems were restricted to one of their two delivery sub-contractors. I have found that I can get their products using the cheaper delivery option (which I used before anyway and I had found a delivery experience of 2-3 weeks quite OK for this type of product).

 

I-herb remains way cheaper than any domestic alternative options. I noticed yesterday one of the Thai online health food stores proudly announcing they now offer cod liver oil - a supplement I took as a kid, free from the UK government (early 50's) as a vestige of the World War II rationing/health protection for infants along with free orange juice and a supplement I now find myself taking as a pensioner with dodgy joints! Hurriedly and excitedly I looked up the comparative pricing.

 

Thai online retailer 500ml for ThB 1,307, including delivery

i-Herb online 480ml for ThB 870, including delivery. [ThB 778 after deducting a loyalty discount which is easily earned once you have ordered before - and as far as I recall, a first order discount applies to newbies]

 

I'll be sticking with i-herb even though for this glass bottled product there is a risk of breakage in transit. Out of 8 shipments over 2 years of this product one was broken on arrival (quickly replaced, with a promise to pack better); didn't happen and another came with a fractured cap but no leakage/product damage. I'm having another go at getting them to pack better!

Traditional Chinese medicine includes the belief that pangolins and shark fins have medicinal qualities.

This is nonsense.

 

The germ theory of disease only came to prominence about 150 years ago.

 

The fact that traditional Chinese medicine believed something was beneficial 2,000 years ago is a negative, not a positive, unless there is evidence.

 

The placebo effect is well known.

Perhaps black pepper and turmeric are beneficial, but without researching this I believe a search will show zero or very close to that published peer reviewed scientific papers claiming any evidence of this.

I'm not an unthinking prosletiser for natural supplements, but you can't blame people with conditions from trying stuff out. I'm sure anyone who wants to form there own view will have enough to guide them from reading all the prior posts. I don't think we need to go over old ground again do we JimmyJ?

There are some reports of the benefits of turmeric but I haven't really seen much "whats the best way to take it" is stirring some ground dried into a drink ok? Is using fresh the best? Should you cook the powder or the fresh root or take them raw? Or just pop a capsule? Just avoid if you have been to the dental hygienist and have had your teeth cleaned.

A fine report...but tumeric can also cause some gastric complications, as it once happened to me...

And it is not the Turmeric, it is the curcumin, which is about 7% of the average Turmeric powder.  So it is 20 or 30 Turmeric pills a day, or everything tastes like Tuirmeric (both of which get real old real quick) if you want to get what you apparently need to get much effect, or find Curcumin only powder.

 

Seemed like a good idea to me when I tried to do it a year ago til I gave up................    Quitter, thats me!
