For inflammatory conditions associated with lyme, how many mg of turmeric would you recommend daily? Is there any concern with lowering blood pressure under normal or any other contra-indications with turmeric? I know that it should not be used with ulcers.
The usual dosage is around 2 grams per day though in China and India they take up to 9 grams daily. It is a food herb and extremely safe. Well, it is ulcerogenic in rats at extremely high doses but I have not seen that it has that effect with people. Generally, acute jaundice, pregnancy, and obstructed bile duct are the contraindications.
