Malcolm, what does Tibetan Medicine say about the use of turmeric as a supplement ?
'We have a physical body with its various needs. Each day we have to eat, sleep, rest and so on.
This is our reality and we can't ignore it'

We've got Asian markets around here that sell whole turmeric roots. It's generally assumed it works a bit like tea or ginseng, it makes blood less gooey, sticky. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22531131

Turmeric is generally good, but it is heating, since it is related to ginger. So it can be a bit drying as well.

[A]nything at all that is well spoken is the word of the Buddha.

-- Ārya-adhyāśaya-sañcodana-nāma-mahāyāna-sūtra

The different sūtras in accord with the emptiness
taught by the Sugata are definitive in meaning;
One can understand that all of those Dharmas in
which a sentient being, individual, or person are taught are provisional in meaning.

So how one balance that Malcolm..?
I should perhaps explain I have been reading about its use as an anti-inflammatory.
