Has anyone besides me used curcumin to address autoimmune diseases.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Autoimmune Diseases group.


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.
