Uses Of Turmeric (Luyang Dilaw)

Turmeric is a plant. You probably know turmeric as the main spice in curry. It has a warm, bitter taste and is frequently used to flavor or color curry powders, mustards, butters, and cheeses. But the root of turmeric is also used widely to make medicine.
Turmeric is used for: 

1. Arthritis
2. Heartburn (dyspepsia)
3. Stomach pain
4. Diarrhea
5. Intestinal gas
6. Stomach bloating
7. Loss of appetite
8. Jaundice
9. Liver problems
10. Gallbladder disorders
11. Acne/ Pimples
12. Ringworm
13. Bruising
14. Leech Bites
15. Eye infections
16. Inflammatory skin conditions
17. Soreness inside the mouth
18. Infected wounds

Turmeric is likely safe when taken by mouth or applied to the skin appropriately for up to 8 months.

Turmeric usually does not cause significant side effects; however, some people can experience stomach upset, nausea, dizziness, or diarrhea.

In one report, a person who took very high amounts of turmeric, over 1500 mg twice daily, experienced a dangerous abnormal heart rhythm. However, it is unclear if turmeric was the actual cause of this side effect. Until more is known, avoid taking excessively large doses of turmeric.
