I assume it's OK: I don't believe that much research has been done about the effects of garlic or turmeric, but I have not found any evidence that they are particularly bad for individuals with addison's disease as long as they are consumed in moderation. On the other hand there is nothing to show that they have any medicinal effects for addison's disease. I suggest that you consume them just like any other foods.

Beneficial to take: A large body of research proves both very beneficial. Turmeric supports adrenals & may stimulate cortisol production- see http://www.Vitaminsupplementer.Com/herbal-medicines/healing-turmeric-power/ & http://www.Whfoods.Com/genpage.Php?Tname=foodspice&dbid=78 garlic also has many benefits & is fine for those with addison's disease.
