I'm thinking of trying turmeric tablets, I have psoratic arthritis and it would be good to have an alternative to my meds.Has anyone tried this and had good results.

My Doctor takes fresh turmeric every day for his arthritis.
He maintains that fresh is the best ( most Asian shops sell it)
Peal it, grate it, make a tea.

It can counteract with other medications so check first.

There is some research suggesting that turmeric can help with AMD. So I take turmeric in hope

Check with your gp or reheumatologist if turmeric affects your existing meds- I have af so take blood thinners. I was told to continue using turmeric in cooking but not to take the supplements because they’re also blood thinners

Thanks everyone,I'm seeing the rheumatologist in a few weeks so will check with him first.
