Ginger and turmeric

In the book extinguishing the fires there is a graphic illustrating the molecules of cinnamon, ginger, Turmeric and capsaicin in comparisons to retinol and poison ivy.

Ginger and Turmeric especially have tons of benefits. Is Grant saying we should avoid them?

Hi Ronnie,

No, I was not saying that you should avoid them. I was just showing the structural similarity in some molecules that have a heating response. But, for most of them that heating response is not necessarily that of true inflammation either.

However, cinnamon should probably be avoided, as it does contain small amounts of VA too.

Thanks Grant. That makes sense in context. I drink ginger tea and take a curcumin supplement which I find very helpful.

 

Ronnie,

Good to hear that ginger and curcummin is helping you.  What improvements are you seeing with them?

I'll have to take a little VA I suppose from cinnamon and bay leaves.

My inidan neighbor, thinks I may have an out of control parasite issue.  Which sound's plausible because I felt like I had an infection starting almost 2 years ago.

He wants me to do this flushing out diet with a drink concoction  which includes tumeric, ginger, garlic, cinnamon, bay leaves, black seeds, and cardamom.

I would say give it a shot. Maybe take out the cinammon. I also heard that one type of cinnamon is more toxic than the other regardless of A.

I use ginger and Turmeric for joint pain and blood circulation helps me a lot.

People on RPF say Ceylon cinnamon is the best choice. I haven’t personally researched it.

Well guys and ladies, I was on an all meat diet for a week and felt rather better, then started taking 1/4 teaspoon of tumeric powder and ginger  for four morings, slowly my lungs have been burning and in pain again.  I don't know if it's the reduced bowel movements from meat or the tumeric or a combination of things I changed in my diet.  I started eating ground bison from costco around the same time and stopped my probiotics.

Anyd Cutler's mercury protocol says tumeric can raise thiol levels and is problematic for people who are sensitive to thiols from mercury.

Im having my cycle of skin itching/eczema, peeling and inflammation on my face.  I'm thinking my lungs have have been doing the same and is more serious.   Is the tumeric activating the VA somehow? Causeing a release or mishandling?

I've stopped the tumeric and the all meat, and going back to what I was doing the past couple months that helped me get better.

This time my lungs feel pretty bad, worse than usual and seems deeper down the air pipe.

Any thoughts on what I'm going through and how any of this could be related to anything would be appreciated.

Sunlight always makes me feel better and my skin better but we haven't got much sun here in Socal.  I don't feel  like it causes any inflammation for me.

Some here might struggle with vertigo as it appears on many "vitamin A toxicity" lists.

I take ginger to help manage moderate-length car rides   (but I'm still not up to much more than that!)

I'd like to know if it could be setting me back...
