*I didn't get to see Ryan Michael before he left today. He either went to work at

Walmart and his cart pushing job or is researching material for his own stories 

of his life. 

*I have several things planned for today:

1.   Go to the grocery store in Orrville and buy some things for the house.

2.   Go to Wooster and try and find some strips for the varnished steps that lead

up to the top floor. Our dog, Dolly, sometimes slips and falls down these stairs

as well as Bill and I. I'll check at Walmart first and then Lowes.

3.   Complete the FIRST EDITION of my story of the day and begin to finalize 


4.   Partial complete, except for scanning, the 6 picture postcards I need to mail.

7:45 PM 3/5/2017 EST. I accomplished number 1. and part of number 3. up to 

now. Some days just don't go according to plan. Do they?

*Curcumin Or Turmeric?

NOVEMBER 1, 2016

"In addition to turmeric as a culinary spice, its has been used traditionally in 

India as a disinfectant and treatment for laryngitis, bronchitis, and diabetes. 

Turmeric is derived from the rhizomes (underground stems) of the plant 

Curcuma longa, a member of the ginger family. It is responsible for the yellow 

color of Indian curry and American mustard. Curcumin, which has powerful 

antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, is the most active constituent of 

turmeric, making up between two to six percent of this spice.

Population studies have shown that India – where people consume turmeric 

regularly – has low rates of Alzheimer’s disease. Researchers have speculated 

that the anti-inflammatory effects of curcumin may be partly responsible. 

(Alzheimer’s begins as an inflammatory process in the brain.) So far, however, 

I’ve seen no scientific evidence of benefit from curcumin supplementation in 

Alzheimer’s patients.

Other studies of turmeric and curcumin have shown the following benefits:

Research has shown that turmeric extract can help alleviate pain and improve 

function in people with osteoarthritis of the knee. There’s also preliminary 

evidence that curcumin may help reduce joint pain and swelling in people 

with rheumatoid arthritis.

Laboratory studies suggest that curcumin acts as a weak phytoestrogen and 

seems to have cancer-protective effects.

Lab studies have also shown that curcumin may help prevent or treat several 

types of cancers, including prostate, breast, skin, and colon cancer.

People in remission from ulcerative colitis who take curcumin are significantly 

less likely to have the disease relapse than those who don’t supplement.

I frequently recommend turmeric supplements, and I believe whole turmeric is 

more effective than isolated curcumin for inflammatory disorders, including 

arthritis, tendonitis, and autoimmune conditions. Take 400 to 600 milligrams 

of turmeric extracts (available in tablets or capsules) three times per day or as 

directed on the product label. Look for products standardized for 95 percent 

curcuminoids. Neither curcumin nor turmeric taken orally is well absorbed 

unless taken with black pepper or piperine, a constituent of black pepper 

responsible for its pungency. When shopping for supplements, make sure 

that the one you choose contains black pepper extract or piperine. (If you’re 

cooking with turmeric, be sure to add some black pepper to the food.). Be 

patient when taking turmeric supplements: the full benefits may not be 

apparent for eight weeks.

Don’t use turmeric if you have gallstones or bile duct dysfunction. Pregnant 

women shouldn’t use it without their doctors’ approval. In rare cases, extended 

use can cause stomach upset or heartburn. Note that piperine can slow the 

elimination of some prescription drugs including phenytoin (Dilantin), 

propranolol (Inderal), and theophylline. Some evidence also suggests that 

curcumin can interfere with certain chemotherapy drugs used to treat breast 

cancer, so if you’re being treated for this disease, be sure to discuss the 

advisability of taking curcumin with your physician."
