PTP196 - Turmeric
In: Podcast2

So let’s talk turmeric. Yes the benefits are many. This ancient spice has been used for years for many things because it has so many powers. Turmeric Curcumin is something to explore. Before conventional medicine, there were plants. Back in the day, people who suffered from major inflammation, pain and fatigue were often treated with Birch bark (which was like taking ibuprofen) or ginger (which I talk about all the time) or another one of my favorites, turmeric. Today, people are quick to take an Advil or Tylenol to help with inflammation and pain, but do we know the long-term effects of using those over the counter medications?

You can actually buy turmeric in the powder form in most grocery stores these days or you can opt for the actual root in many health food stores. Be cautious when using turmeric as it tends to stain things orange (especially when handling the root).


This week’s question:

Avi asks: “Hey Plant Trainers, I have a foodie question for you. I’ve been reading about the benefits of turmeric and was overwhelmed. Where can I buy turmeric and what can I use it with? Basically I just don’t know what to do with it!

    I have rosacea. I have been putting turmeric on my face at night. Yes my pillow case is stained yellow. It has definitely helped with inflammation. Recently I changed to a different bottle and my skin has gotten very dry very quickly and I am wondering if it is a lot stronger than the last bottle. I am taking a break for a bit and then seeing if I can use it again and be a bit more careful. 🙂

      Ya, it definitely stains everything! Maybe consuming it could be helpful as well, especially if you’re taking a topical break. Thanks for sharing!
