Has anyone besides me used curcumin to address autoimmune diseases.

Serendipity ! Several years ago my daughter-in-law, Emily Jade, gave me a jar of red ginseng for additional energy. My doctor told me that he didn't know if it had this effect, but it certainly wouldn't hurt me. I put it in my tea for months and then forgot about it. This week found it in the cupboard and started yesterday to take it again. Perhaps this is why I feel so well to-day. 🙂
@noosat1 ,yeah 😃
My RA doctor is treating my very mild new case with auto immune diet,
Probiotics, turmeric tablets, fish oil tablets.

I take 3,000mg of turmeric, spaced at 3 times a day. Also have started taking CBD oil. So far, so good, 🙂
I had been taking 1,000mg of curcumin/turmeric each day to see if it helped with PMR symptoms. I had tapered Prednisone from 20mg per day to 2,5mg but had flare up because of almost 2 weeks of continuous stress. Not wanting to go up on the medicine, I decided to try various other methods to relieve nightly pain and daily fatigue. Yesterday I increased Turmeric to 3,000mg daily, this morning I have stiffness, but no debilitating pain. Of course I really don't know if this is because of the increased Turmeric, however, I plan to continue with the increased dosage.
Lots of people like turmeric. I put it in my soups. You are taking more than in my soups.
