We use turmeric basically in everything, it has really great benefits, those who have a problem with cooking they can take pills. But do consult with a doctor before taking any supplements.

Thank you for your info. I've been taking it for about a year now, on and off. It may not be doing anything for my depression, but it's doing great things for my back and knees! Plus, my dog developed cancer a few months ago and I've been giving it to her too. So, thank your father for all he's doing in cancer research. If he has any hints for herbal treatments for my little Pomeranian, I'm all ears! (lol)

Hope to chat more with you now that I'm back on SparkPeople.

Somone mentioned that turmeric is used in India... I can deffinetaly vouche for that! My family uses it in everything. My cousins back in India use it on their face too when they shower, it stains the skin a little bit, but it makes your skin super soft and clear (dont use too much if you dont want it to stain). There are many reasons to use turmeric, I wasnt aware it could help with depression. My dad actually works with cancer cells and cancer research, he told me turmeric, along with many other spices in India help the body and help reduce the chances or cancer, but you have to eat them consistently (not just once a month or whatever). We use these spices in our everyday cooking. I'm sure someone who just started incorporating turmeric should take it slow and talk to a dr. first.

I have been taking trumeric pill form for a year & a half for imflamation, joint & musle pain. I have never found xtra benifits for depression in it, a half a year ago i had 2 increase my dosage to 2 a day. After 12-18 months you need 2 detoux your self from trumeric so it doesnt stop working. Try 2 ask your health food stores, they should be full of info. For you. I will tell you that I have never found side effects from trumeric with interacting with cymbalta meds., however there are 3 depression catagories that the meds., fall in2 & works differently in our brains. I have been told by my doctor 2 take evening rose oil herbal for the crackiness & as a mood stableizer.

Shana

breath & keep going
Never give up.
Believe in yourself.

Here it is, three weeks later and I've experienced zero side effects past day three. I bumped up to the whole recommended dose within about a week and the only difference I've noticed is when I've forgotten to take the turmeric. With the turmeric and my antidepressant I've experienced some wonderful, nearly gleeful days. The couple of days without the turmeric boost were not so gleeful and, for no substantial reason, I found myself being difficult. I've been faithful with the turmeric since that day.

I hope you others who were going to give it a try found it helpful.

I am definitely going to give this a try. I am in Malaysia at the moment and turmeric is everywhere. It would be amazing if it helps. I know have to start finding some recipes. Thank you so much for posting.

The more I speak to people about it the more I hear about the different things people say it does... helping with inflammation, complexion, and possible preventative properties. You're lucky that you can incorporate it in your cooking. (I just can't cook.) You get to enjoy the savory flavor and the possible health benefits.

BTW, I've noticed a little bit of side effects from it, a quick shooting pain in my ribs, just real quick, once for the first two days, but not today. Today I did notice my knees are feeling less painful but I'm also taking a joint supplement for that. Hopefully the turmeric is boosting the joint supplement. Of course, my experience is mine. Others will likely have different experiences.

Check with your doctor.

I've heard that...and it's great to hear of the benefits. I cook with it a lot.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

You're not the only turmeric guinea pig, Wheely. I'm on day three of taking turmeric. Since I have a history of gallstones I'm not taking a full dosage, just taking it slow to make sure of any side effects. So far, I'm back to enjoying the first effect of my anti-depressants, sleeping well at night. That alone makes me happy.

I have been thinking about trying turmeric for depression. I will be the guinea pig for this group. I am not afraid to try it. I have been taking 5 HTP, but it really isn't helping anymore as far as I can tell.

I mentioned that in my first post, including that it is important if you have gallbladder issues because of side effects.

If you are taking any anti-depressants, I would check with your doctor before starting any supplements!

Sure! If I find any scientific info, I'll post it on here.

It does seem like a miracle herb. In India, it is used quite a bit for preventative measures. It is used a lot in Indonesia in jamu (a Balinese way of healing that uses mostly herbal drinks for maintenance and to help cure ailments) and in Malaysia in their way of herbal healing, along with ginger. This info I get from these books:

Jamu: The Ancient Indonesian Art of Herbal Healing, and--
Health and Beauty from the Rainforest: Malaysian Traditions of Ramuan.

I think it's a good idea to start supplementing turmeric, I will be doing the same!

I bought turmeric supplements last night. It's just the powder in a caplet. I'm a little on the fence right now.

Cassandra, if you find any research in science journals I'd love to hear about it. Seems it's also effective with cancer prevention and treatment. May be a little too good to be true for it to provide so many benefits but, what's there to loose?

I knew turmeric is good for inflammation but I had no idea it was good for depression! That is awesome. I was thinking about incorporating some turmeric in my diet somehow, like by making 'golden milk' (but using coconut milk instead of cow milk). I heard turmeric is good for the joints and muscles, too.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi All!

Did anyone see the findings about the benefits of turmeric with depression, and many other health issues? Google it. I found it on MSN and that led to PR newswire. If it interests you, talk to your doctor. If you have gallbladder issues... definitely talk to your doctor first.

All the best!
