Turmeric is a spice grown in India and other tropical regions of Asia. It is the main spice in curry. It has a warm, bitter taste and is frequently used to flavor or color curry powders, mustards, butters and cheeses. It has a long history of use in herbal remedies, especially in China, India and Indonesia. The root and rootstock, or rhizome of the plant contain curcumin, which is considered to be the active ingredient. Curcumin is not related to cumin which is a spice made from the seeds of a different plant. Turmeric has been used for headaches, migraine and joint pain, as well as for other conditions.

best turmeric curcumin
I am truly inspired by this online journal! Turmeric is really beneficial, but at the same time, we have to watch our intake of it. Higher doses of turmeric could cause nausea, raised risk of bleeding, lower blood pressure, etc. I have perused your post, truly you have given this extraordinary informative data about it.
How often is it safe to take curcumin capsules to prevent arthritis?

i have suffered from migraines since i was around 10 or 11, I am now 44. I started taking Tumeric Curminidan about 2yrs ago off and on. Within the last year or so when I started to notice it if you forget to take it I have a severe Migraine but what is nice is you can take it on the onset of a migraine and it will lesson it.
When I do get a migraine other than taking the meds for it Tumeric, exedrine migraine and a dark place that is if I listen to music with a very deep bass in the background helps releave it and I am curious if this is a common thing with migraine patients. I do notice that higher pitched music does not work in such a way
Thank you for your time
I take verapamil to keep from getting migraines. I started tumeric a weekago, my migraines are coming back after being migraine free for years.
I have drank turmeric Tea two days in a row and have gotten a headache shortly after. Is this a symptom for anyone else? I’m only using 1/4 tsp does my body just need to get used to it?
I am supposed to take 6 500 mg capsules of turmeric a day to relieve arthritis inflammation, and every time I approach the recommended dosage, I get a slIght headache. The doctor wants me to work up to that dosage, but I keep getting mild headaches. I didn’t see this listed as a side effect. I’ll keep working up to it. Your post is the first I’ve seen with a similar issue.
Turmeric is very high in tannins. These are migraine triggers for some. I used to use turmeric until I realized this.
I’ve been using turmeric in my tea at night before going to bed. Unlike you, I was not measuring the amount I was dumping into the tea. The next morning, twice thus far, I’d awake with a pounding headache. You’re not alone. However, I’m grateful to know that its not just in my head. I think I’ll purchase the capsules versus trying to judge the correct amount on my own, moving forward.
Trying to find information about why I get intense headaches after taking turmeric supplements. Read these last posts and saw I’m not alone. I was thinking as well that I may have to work up to a certain daily mg. Sure would like to find some info that would shed some light on this common concern.
Same here….anybody have a answer???
Trying to find herb instead doc meds to help with arthistis joint pain and now getting swelling ankles after being on my feet for 12 hours
My father had severe arthritis pain and has eliminated his pain with CBD oil 10 mgs morning and evening. Now all his friends are taking it too. Be sure the CBD without the. I got his from cbdpure.com who has reasonable prices for CBD made from organic hemp. I have no relationship to the company. If you live in a state where pot is legal, the CBD from cannibis is more pure and more effective. Again, get it without thc. If not, cbdpure.com and other companies sell CBD from hemp which is legal to buy online.
Thanks for the info! I’m allergic to all pain meds except Tylenol. As you may know, that does nothing for inflammation. I hope this works!
