Dear Stephen,
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.
Stephen’s response:
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.
