Easy Ways to Use Turmeric for Stomach Problems

Ayurveda assumes that a healthy stomach is most important part of a healthy body. If your stomach is not healthy, the body will not be healthy. How true!

Turmeric can play an important part in curing common stomach disorders. Here I present a few Ayurvedic methods to get relief in stomach problems using turmeric.

Using Turmeric for Stomach Issues

Here are some easy to use ways:

Turmeric and Jaggery

Jaggery (traditional unrefined, uncentrifuged whole cane sugar) is an important part of Ayurveda. In fact, in most cases you will find ayurvedic medicines involving jaggery and not sugar.

For stomach pain, you need to boil 10 gms of the bark of turmeric root in about quarter liter of water. After boiling mix jaggery – due to heat it will completely dissolve in water.

This solution is then given to the patient. I have tried this once and found it super effective.

Turmeric and Ginger for Diarrhea

For this take an equal amount of bark of turmeric root and ginger root. This is then grinded to make powder. 2-5 gms of this powder is then given to the patient 2-3 times a day based on condition.

Due to lack of proper sanitation facilities, Diarrhea was rampant in India. Thousands of children used to die every year because of that. With no doctors available, it was remedies like these which helped people.

Turmeric and yogurt for Diarrhea

Taking 10 gms of turmeric with a cup of yogurt helps in treating Diarrhea and dysentery. This is because both are caused due to microbial attack and turmeric is a powerful anti-microbial agent.

Summary

I will keep updating this list as I get more ways to treat stomach disorders using turmeric. If you have used turmeric to do so please share your experience for the benefit of others.

  1. Mainly using Turmeric for it’s cancer fighting benefits after not being able to take the required chemo pills for 5 yrs for a breast cancer lesion (surgically removed). I’ve been drinking the herbal tea mixture of Turmeric powder 95% curcuminoids along with ginger, honey, lemon juice and black pepper a teaspoon of all with 1 cup of water for 3 weeks and I feel like I’m in my 20’s at 51. I can feel a big improvement in my digestive system. No more of the bloated full feeling I’ve felt for the last 20 years taking Nexium that had started damaging my kidneys. Blood pressure and blood sugar readings are normal along with a healthier eating style (More Raw fruits and vegetables). No more body aches and pains, great anti-inflammatory properties and energy like super powers!

    1. Taking turmeric on empty stomach or large doses may cause gastric discomfort. Avoid doing either of these. Always start with small doses and preferably with meals. If the symptoms still persist please discontinue the use of turmeric and consult a health practitioner.
