Ask your pharmacist Mercia they can be a great source of information regarding meds and sometimes are easier to get to than the docs.

Turmeric is a spice, not a medicine so I'm sure it would be safe enough :) But I suppose it would just be a matter of trial and error to see if it made your IBS better or worse; IBS seems to be a very individual thing, different things will act as triggers for different people. Might be worth trying though :)

I will shortly start to take turmeric tablets but a bit concerned as to how I can incorporate it with black pepper. The ideal scenario for me would be to incorporate black pepper groundings into my diet by just sprinkling it on my food etc. However I am not sure how much black pepper I should be taking on a daily basis.

Not too keen on things like coconut oil as it tastes horrible :(

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

The idea with turmeric when using it with the oil is and pepper is to make it into a paste for using on/in food. For our doglet it gets poured over and mixed in with her kibble, a bit like a dressing. I have heard of huu~mons doing a similar thing with it over salads, potatoes etc.

Once again many thanks for your reply.

I guess that works fine when using turmeric powder but I assume it changes things when using turmeric tablets/capsules.

I think I will just have to sprinkle some on every meal I have and hope it's enough.

Thanks

Yes, that's what I do :) I usually do about 8 'grinds'. And don't worry if you don't like coconut oil, just make sure there is some fat in your meal to allow you to be able to absorb the turmeric. I think they say coconut oil because it is anti-inflammatory and has other health benefits, but if you have olive oil or even old fashioned (grass-fed) butter, that's ok too :)

Thank you I do really appreciate you taking the time to reply. I think that's what I will do and see how I go for a couple of weeks and report back on my progress.

Thanks

We have capsules for her at the moment and just open them up to make her dressing/paste each time. Wrt the tablets, I believe these are just simply taken as you would do with any other pill/capsule. Do check with whoever you get them from about the best way to take them tho, to be sure you will getting the best from them.
