Greetings All,

Hope you are having a great day! I have a question regarding some advice that Instructor gave in the lecture 'Practical Tips for Spiritual Development.' How do we use Turmeric as a painkiller?

I am making an attempt to reduce and even maybe get off of synthetic painkillers and am very excited about trying some natural medicine. :D Between twelve and thirteen minutes of the lecture 'Practical Tips for Spiritual Development,' the Instructor says, "What about trying some natural medicine, Turmeric for example? When mixed with some black pepper and some good fat, is just as good an anti-inflammatory as Advil."

If you could let me know what specifically the quote means and how to use Turmeric, I would appreciate it. I am sorry for my kitchen ignorance. A thousand thanks! Be well!

Sincerely,
Adam

P.S. I forgot to mention that I bought some Turmeric pills at the drug store. It does not seem like the pills would work as well, but that is just my ignorant opinion. If they are of any valuable use and you could let me know what you think about them, I would also appreciate it. As always, thank you so much for everything. Bests!

Kind Regards,
Adam

Hello Everyone,

Love and kind regards to each and all of you. Here is some of the info that I received:

https://www.tarladalal.com/turmeric-with-black-pepper-for-anti-inflammation-42772r

How to enhance Turmeric’s benefits and absorption:
Curcumin only makes up about 5% of turmeric, similar to black pepper where the active ingredient, piperine also makes up about 5% of the spice. Piperine is responsible for black pepper’s rich flavor and helps inhibit drug metabolism. For example, the liver gets rid of foreign substances by making them water-soluble so that they can be excreted, and piperine can inhibit this process so that curcumin is not excreted. This explains how piperine can help to make curcumin more bioavailable. With just 1/20 teaspoon or more of black pepper, the bioavailability of turmeric is greatly improved, and turmeric’s benefits are further enhanced.
Another way to increase the bioavailability of turmeric is to consume this spice with a source of fat (such as avocado, nut butters and nuts, fish, etc.), and therefore curcumin will directly be absorbed into the blood stream and bypass the liver.

Hope this helps someone!
