Turmeric-dramatic results


#1

I've been trying a lot of DIY and natural therapies over the past year and have crafted a daily routine, centered around turmeric. For me, the results have been dramatic. Here's exactly what I do:

  • 30 minutes of exercise daily. For me this is a 15 minute bike, or elliptical workout combined with a brisk fifteen minute walk to the gym.
  • Approximately 3 tablespoons of coconut oil, three times per day (in food)
  • Two turmeric capsules (with black pepper) in the morning and again at noon.
  • An evening meal of strong yellow curry or other turmeric based meal.

I have also been getting acupuncture on a weekly basis for the past year. I'm convinced that the accupuncture helps with balance and also the aches and stiffness. 

If this works for you , please let me know.

PS: If you don't like curry or capsules, use a thumb size section of turmeric root, peel, slice and brew into a tea with honey, lemon and coconut oil.

Hi bullwinkle,

Have looked at your list can see why a good idea to add these foods to diet.  Black pepper, blood brain barrier ? 

I am a fan of trying an amended diet use hemp oil as well for omega 3 especially.  D3 supplements my must have on this list.  

I believe food can have a impact on brain health, which in turn could help pd symptons, for me I want to do all I can to keep the little cells from dying off.  Thanks for this,   Matt K started a similiar thread on diet and excercise some weeks ago, which reinforces this new research.

Hi all, I was interested in the turmeric and have started to add to food this week. Haven't seen the capsules. As Teehee says Mattk started a thread on foods to eat. I would add beetroot (dopamine) and blueberries ( antioxidants). I just think if you look after the diet and fitness (even on a small level) it can only help you feel better. Also it's stuff you can control because there's a lot we can't control with Pd.

Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties, that's probably why it helps.

Don't forget the Chia seeds. Works wonders for constipation, cramps and muscle spasms. Does for me anyway!

Twinks.
