Can consuming raw turmeric powder with luke warm water harm pregnancy?

Can consuming raw turmeric powder with luke warm water harm pregnancy?

Possibly: No one does research giving herbs during pregnancy so we don't know for sure. It seems safe to use in cooking but taking medicinal amounts may cause bleeding or stimulate uterine contractions. I advise caution with all herbs in the first trimester. It is probably safest in the final weeks of pregnancy. See http://bit.Ly/16ma7p2 ; http://www.Nlm.Nih.Gov/medlineplus/druginfo/natural/662.Html. ...Read more

Is aloe vera juice good for diverticulitis?

No: It won't hurt but will not help. Diverticulitis is an infection around a diverticula and needs to be treated with antibiotics. If they do not resolve the infection, then surgery is required.
