Turmeric And Ginger Supplements
I'm currently taking verapamil 100 mg ER to treat migraines. I'm wanting to no longer take the meds because I'm now taking turmeric/ginger supplement?
Consult doctor: It would not be a good idea to discontinue your medication without discussing it with the doctor who prescribed it. It is highly unlikely that turmeric and ginger will ward off your migraines. You may take these for the flavor and taste, but do not expect these herbs to treat any illness. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Turmeric: Curcumin is the main component of turmeric, and it is likely that turmeric is more effective than curcumin in the treatment of inflammatory disorders.

Is a turmeric (curcumin and black pepper) supplement advisable to take to promote a generally and overall healthy lifestyle? Any downside?
Yes,not for everyone: Turmeric is one of the healthiest foods we can consume but is poorly absorbed so mixing it with black pepper enhances absorption (or with phospholipids in a form called Meriva). It reduces inflammation,is good for brain,heart and liver,thins blood,protects against heart disease, cancer & Alzheimer's but can cause stomach upset for some and interacts with some drugs.

Here are some ...: Reading the label and third party review will give some insights of being good or bad since these products are not regulated but oftentimes highly commercialized; that is the only possible way to discern. As to using the supplements in facing UCTD, I could not sense any potential contraindication except allergy to individual ingredients.

Tumeric may help: You will know quickly if tumeric eases the pain of your gout. There are excellent medications for this however - you should see a rheumatologist for gout.
