Myths And Facts About Turmeric

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), MD - Ayurveda
Sexologist, Haldwani
Myths And Facts About Turmeric

Let's be clear about what turmeric can not do:

Turmeric usually does not cause significant side effects -- ( The truth is that some people can experience stomach upset, nausea, dizziness, or diarrhea)
You can use turmeric if you have gallbladder problems -- (The truth is that turmeric can make gallbladder problems worse)
Turmeric is not helpful for diabetes -- (The truth is that early research suggests that taking turmeric daily for 9 months can reduce the number of people with prediabetes who develop diabetes.)

Now that we have cleared up what Turmeric cannot do, let's talk about what it Can do for you.

Turmeric has been used for roughly 4000 years as a medicine for a wide variety of medical conditions. Turmeric was mainly for digestive issues, but can be used to treat everything from indigestion to cancer.

The main active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, and according to UMMC, 'Curcumin is also a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants scavenge molecules in the body known as free radicals, which damage cell membranes, tamper with DNA, and even cause cell death.

Antioxidants can fight free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause. In addition, curcumin lowers the levels of two enzymes in the body that cause inflammation. It also stops platelets from clumping together to form blood clots.'

Turmeric has been shown to treat:

Indigestion
Dyspepsia
Ulcerative Colitis
Stomach Ulcers
Osteoarthritis
Heart Disease
Cancer
Bacterial Infections
Viral Infections
Uveitis
The research that back up these claim is extensive to say the least. For instance, a publication from The International Journal of Biochemistry and Cell
'Although safe in most cases, ancient treatments are ignored because neither their active component nor their molecular targets are well defined. This is not the case, however, with curcumin, a yellow pigment substance and component of turmeric (Curcuma longa), which was identified more than a century ago. For centuries it has been known that turmeric exhibits anti-inflammatory activity, but extensive research performed within the past two decades has shown that the activity of turmeric is due to curcumin, a diferuloylmethane. This agent has been shown to regulate numerous transcription factors, cytokines, protein kinases, adhesion molecules, redox status and enzymes that have been linked to inflammation. The process of inflammation has been shown to play a major role in most chronic illnesses, including neurodegenerative, cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic, autoimmune and neoplastic diseases.'

The publications concludes:'The wisdom and scientific credentials of curcumin in the Ayurvedic and Chinese systems of medicine have been corroborated by numerous studies conducted over the past 30 years. These observations are also supported by epidemiological data suggesting lower incidence of chronic diseases in people from countries where curcumin is consumed. The various effects of curcumin have been widely studied in Western systems of medicine for decades, and has been found to possess antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Considering that inflammation plays a major role in most chronic illnesses, anti-inflammatory agents are needed for prevention purposes. Although several different steroids and NSAIDS (such as celecoxib, aspirin, ibuprofen, phenylbutazole, etc.) have been approved for treatment of inflammatory conditions, most of them have side effects, especially when consumed over long periods of time. Because curcumin inhibits multiple proinflammatory pathways and is affordable, this phytochemical should be further explored for prevention and treatment of various chronic diseases. Further clinical trials are needed to fully develop the potential of this 'age-old NSAID'.

For the sake of pregnancy, best period for intercourse is from 10th to 20th day of normal 30 days cycle. To set your body rhythm right it should have adequate sleep and timely meals. Your weight should be as close to the ideal for age and height, as possible. Males should avoid smoking, alcohol and tight pants. Logically the best position would be with man on top so sperm entry is aided by gravity. Take a 2 hour nap before you go for a wash.

Hi €œBecause there's an increase in vaginal discharge during pregnancy, it can cause irritation of the skin of the vulva.” So it could just be because of your discharge, or it could be a sign of an infection like a yeast infection, bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis, herpes or HPV.

I am a mother of 3 old baby. Now a days my body is aching a lot especially during waking up in the morning. I am also taking calcium and iron tablets. What is the problem. Is this happen to everyone post delivery?

MBBS
Gynaecologist, Jalandhar
Kindly mention the age of your baby. If the baby is very young and gets up during night, maybe you are not getting adequate sleep. Do get your vitamin D level checked. One important factor causing weakness after delivery is Postpartum blues or depression. Is your mood irritable nowadays? Try to get rest and do things that you like.

If she did not had sex in the last month then there is no reason to worry. Menses can get delayed bcos of hormonal changes or stress or weight gain or illness. She can wait for another 15 days to get menses naturally. If she had sex in last month then urine pregnancy test should be done asap.

As you had sex in mid of February and you failed to take I-pill, you have very high chance of getting pregnant. Pregnancy test won't come positive this soon it should be done 7 days after the missed period. You can repeat the test on 8 of March and if it is negative then keep repeating every week till you get your menses.

Hello, these are progesterone side effects and she is likely to experience her withdrawal bleeding in next few days which generally occur in next 5-7 days post taking the ipill. As she has taken the second pill before waiting for the withdrawal bleed, hence the effects are more. She should just increase her water intake to dilute the effect of progesterone and use hot fomentation for sore breasts. Once the bleed arises, the symptoms shall subside and pregnancy shall be ruled out was well. If no menses in next few days then get a serum beta hcg test done to rule out pregnancy, possibly due to ecp failure.
