Can Turmerc be healing?

Just wondered what your thoughts were on tumeric or your own experiences of it helping symptoms or your own remedies. I’ve been having a bit of optic neuritis last few weeks does anyone else tend to suffer from it and recover well with no issues? Well I saw @denisa post about how she had optic neuritis and made a cup of hot water with half teaspoon of tumeric powder, half a teaspoon of cinnamon, half a teaspoon of ginger powder and apple cider vinegar, and honey and her optic neuritis cleared up, well I made the tea and the next day it started cleaning up, I Don’t know it was that tea I made or a coincidence, I’ve been drinking it every day since is it too much? Lol X

I take tumeric in capsule form everyday, I also take Biotin and other supplements. Several weeks ago I read that too much Biotin can be harmful. I decided to cut back too one 200mg pill a day. A couple of days later I start having more tingling and numbness than I usually have. After several days of it I decided to go back to taking two capsules, one in the morning and one at bedtime. The tingling went back to it’s usual level of annoyance. Potter

I have read that people with MS have a extra bacteria in their stomachs that destroys natural biotin. It has been awhile since I have research this but I think biotin is suppose to help protect nerves. I also take Alpha Lipoic Acid and it is suppose to help repair nerves according to the research studies that are going on. I might have the two mixed up, maybe someone else has more knowledge on the subject. Biotin is fairly cheap doesn’t have any side effects unless you take to much. It’s good for your hair and skin, for me it was a win win! Potter

I bought some turmeric chai tea that I make with almond milk. I have it once a day. I haven’t noticed a difference but figured it couldn’t hurt. It tastes OK. You might like it.

In India and middle east, turmeric is popular for its anti inflamatory effect. Any soft or hard tissue inflammation.

You might want to read this. The hundreds of studies cited are not in humans but animal (often models) and the lab.

But why does it work so well? That’ll be this: https://www.health.harvard.edu/mental-health/the-power-of-the-placebo-effect

A powerful thing indeed. However, the strength of the effect indcres (up to a point) with the strength of commitment on the recipients part. This effect corresponds with the more money that has been spent and also the recipients desire for a cure/effect.

MS is such a horrible bugger that we all – deep down – really really want something to ‘fix it’. Sadly, it isn’t that simple. As my mother used to say to us, “If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is”.
