Turmeric and psoriasis, role of turmeric and skin
Turmeric  protects skin by quenching free radicals and reducing inflammation through nuclear factor-KB inhibition. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties. As of October 2009, we could not find any human studies with the use of turmeric in the treatment of psoriasis.

History
Turmeric spice is a plant (Curcuma longa), native to South India and Indonesia. Turmeric spice has been used from antiquity as a condiment, as a textile dye, and medically as an aromatic stimulant. Turmeric spice is a common ingredient in Indian food and yellow mustard.

Benefits
Curcumin, the substance that gives the spice turmeric its yellow color may help fight cancer, preliminary evidence suggests. Researchers have found in the lab that the active ingredient in turmeric, called curcumin, can enhance the cancer-fighting power of treatment with TRAIL, a naturally occurring molecule that helps kill cancer cells. TRAIL stands for tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand. In an experiment with human prostate cancer cells in a laboratory dish, the combination treatment killed off two to three times more cells than either treatment alone.
Turmeric may also help suppress multiple myeloma, a blood cancer, early lab research shows–suggesting yet another health benefit from this long-heralded substance. Adding curcumin to human cells with the blood cancer multiple myeloma, Dr. Bharat B. Aggarwal of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and his colleagues found, stopped the cells from replicating. And the cells that were left died. Although the study did not test the benefits of Curcumin in patients, previous research has shown the substance may fight other types of cancers..

Side effects, risk, allergy
Turmeric and oxalates, kidney stones
The consumption of supplemental doses of turmeric can increase urinary oxalate levels, thereby increasing risk of kidney stone formation in susceptible individuals.

I recently took Turmeric capsules 500mg for two weeks using one a day. It resulted in rash causing extreme itching. I was hoping it would help my psoriasis. Can this condition be reversed as I still continue to experience the itching even though I have stopped taking the turmeric.
Although allergies could occur to any herb or spice, we have not had any else report to us about a turmeric allergy. Perhaps it was a coincidence and something else you ate or another supplement is causing the allergy, or perhaps a filler or other ingredient in the turmeric supplement caused it.

I know a friend who had itching after taking tumeric capsules for 4 weeks and ended up getting itching skin, could she have had Hydatid Cyst Tapeworm, DID NOT KNOW IT, and the tapeworms were killed by the Tumeric and the STREPTOMYCESE FUNGUS that the CYSTS exuded may have caused the itching? And she should have been followed up with Ozonated Olive oil in the morning, followed by L-Cysteine 5 hours later for two doses in the evening, and this continued for about a week. The itching would have stopped, as the STREPTOMYCES FUNGUS and its EXTRA cell creature it created to destroy the body’s Immune Cells would have been killed off and the body immune cells would have regenerated and the itching would have stopped.
A. This is speculation.

Interactions with medications, prescription drugs
Q. I take Vytorin, Plavix, Coreg, Altace for my Heart and am taking Lyrica for pain in my lower back caused from Stenosis. I am wondering if taking Turmeric would affect any of these medications? I would like to take Capsules of Turmeric for the inflammation that is causing the pain.
A. We cannot make such recommendations, that is the role of your doctor after he or she reads the research on turmeric supplement use.

Arthritis and osteoarthritis benefit treatment
Q. Is turmeric useful in osteoarthritis? Can a turmeric supplement be taken together with a boswellia supplement?
A. Turmeric may be helpful in some people for osteoarthritis. See the link for more information. We don’t see any major problems combining turmeric with Boswellia as long as the dosages are not excessive.

I am a 72 year old woman, cancer survivor with SVT and a low blood pressure that spikes once in awhile. I take 10 mg of Inderal when my BP reaches 120. I purchased vegetarian capsules of TURMERIC ROOT extract pill 400 mg. Is it a stimulant that would cause my SVT (racing pulse) to act up?
It is not known to be a stimulant for the heart but it is a good idea to begin any supplement in low dosages.

Sexuality
Does it influence sexual health like Tribulus Terrestris Extract?
We don’t think it has a clear influence on sexuality.
