Excerpts from Nutritional Herbology

Turmeric root powder has a strong reputation as a medicinal herb and anti-inflammatory agent.

Turmeric root powder has been known for some time that the herb has antiseptic properties, but it was formerly too pricey to be used in that manner. Today, however, it is becoming popular as a cleansing agent to rid one’s colon of parasites and yeast infections.

Turmeric root powder relies on its volatile oil for its actions. It increases the production of enzymes in the liver that metabolize toxins in the manner similar to schizandra, Licorice and Milk Thistle. This may also explain its anti-inflammatory effects.

From Our Reading and/or Experience...

  • This is not like the turmeric you may find on a spice rack in a supermarket. This is much more fresh and effective.
  • Like most spices, it is potent and a little goes a long way.
  • We use it very often in tincture combinations and in capsules. Of course, it can be used in many other types of remedies. Except as a tea, as powders are not normally used in tea combinations.
  • Turmeric is a food and spice. Thus, we keep it in the kitchen as all other food ingredients. We add it to many dishes (salads, meat dishes, rice, stir fry, vegetables, etc.) to enhance the flavor and add nutritional value to our foods.
  • Turmeric can be used to benefit anyone: men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), children and animals.
  • It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose.
  • As is the case with most spices, Turmeric should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place.

Bronchitis/asthma cure
by Anonymous on Apr 28, 2014

Hello, I would like to share my experience when I get a hint of a cold and it doesn't matter how minor, it will trigger an asthma episode, then without further notice I will get a bout of bronchitis without fail - and its always acute for me!
I got tied of going to the Doctors for antibiotics every year and I get sick of being down for the count for weeks on end. My cough is so violent I have to wear pads to protect me and everything I sit on.
To cut a long story short... I heard that Turmeric was a wonderful anti-inflammatory and just an overall great spice for ones health... I just thought it would be good for my chest perhaps... this is my intuition setting in. I went online and got hold of 1000 "00" vegetable capsules + the machine to make my own capsules - bought a 250gm (5lb) pack of turmeric powder from the local Indian spice shop and packed around 500 capsules full of this wonderful spice... (sent 250 odd to my mother in-law for her arthritis) and proceeded to take after food of course, twice a day 4 turmeric full capsules. WELLLLL... Life can throw a miracle our way at times and I can honestly say for me that my bronchitis became loose within 2 days... my airway tubes felt like they were having some relief... so I kept up this dosage for a week... and my bronchitis (without one visit to the doctors or a trip to the hospital because it becomes chronic no matter what) has all but gone! I AM THE HAPPIEST PERSON ALIVE TODAY!!
Yes, I self medicated and intent (as winter is fast approaching) to take 2 morning/night for the next month... then I will drop it down to 1 maybe 2 times a day for the rest of my life!!
I can't speak more highly of this wonder root!!

Give this wonder root a try if you suffer from bronchitis or even a bronchial condition and happy health to you :-)

Turmeric for cancer
by SARA F REEVES on Apr 20, 2014

My husband read that turmeric was proven effective on cancer. When his PSA went up again, he chose to try turmeric rather than start treatments again. In six weeks his PSA fell by .5.
He is going to continue it and, prayerfully, the turmeric, along with the organic black pepper, will continue to be effective on his prostrate cancer.

    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 1, 2014

    Unfortunately we are not medical professionals and since we do not know you or your body personally we cannot give out dosage suggestions. I would recommend asking a nutritionist for their opinion or doing a google search for how to much of the herbs to take with the reason why you are taking them, should give you an estimate about how much to take per herb. Thanks!

powdered herbs
by stacey durfee on Jan 13, 2014

I was wondering about putting herbs like beet root,burdock,cinnamon,turmerick into capsules. Would that be a good idea? So that you could take them as a supplement. Thanks for you time!

    by Bulk Herb Store on Jan 13, 2014

    That would be great! I do that with many of the herbs I take. Enjoy!

In regards to the BCM-95, I think that it is probably a lot better for a person than a drug like Enbrel. However, after going to the BCM-95 website and reading that they use Ethanol or Ethyl Acetate as a solvent, I would rather use a raw source of herbs/spices. The BCM-95 website (got to FAQ's) also educated me to the fact that most bottled extracts can contain up to 2 ppms or more of lead because of the other scary solvents that they are permitted to use in the extraction process.

I would like to add to your article that the anti-inflammatory response we find useful is due to the curcumin in turmeric.

The problem is, curcumin is very poorly absorbed into the human body. Simply taking ground turmeric will most likely not help those suffering with chronic inflammation [one of which is me] such as rheumatoid arthritis, crones, MS, asthma, etc.

There is a turmeric [curcumin] product that is absorbed VERY well called BCM-95. Please read about it.

I have very severe psoriatic arthritis and for 7 years had been on a biological med called Etanercept [Enbrel]. For 4.5 years I had been searching for a natural remedy and finally found it in turmeric with a curcumin that is highly bio-available. It replaced, 100% replaced that biologic med!!! You cannot imagine how happy I am in finding this super absorbable turmeric!

Turmeric also has shown to greatly help people with depression.

Is turmeric safe while nursing?
by KC on Sep 27, 2013

I was going to make a face mask or scrub with turmeric (and look into its other uses)...is it safe while nursing? What herbs are not?

Thank you

    Yes, you can use turmeric while nursing. If you click on each herb, we have a list based on our expertise on whether or not you can take while pregnant or nursing.

Daily use of Turmeric
by beauley on Nov 24, 2012

We[mostly myself] use This spice on almost everything we eat and being told recently from research that Turmeric is not absorbed well by our digestive system until ground black pepper is added which we are also told from other research that black pepper increases absorption of foods by a factor of 2,000%. A bit of info to digest.

    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 28, 2013

    Thank you for your input!! Cayenne pepper has also been said to greatly improve your body's ability to absorb nutrients!

Liver Imflamation resolved
by Johanna Armentrout on Jul 18, 2012

At B.H.S. this is one of my favorite herbs. For the last year or so I'd been having tenderness and swelling over liver area. After taking turmeric in caps (2-3) 3x per day I no longer experience this! Also took away stiffness/tenderness in muscles and joints. I no longer have to take it.Exciting!
