I'm drinking it every morning. Tastes fine, and I believe that curcumin is a good thing in general, so I'm happy taking it.

I'm never able to say what the effect of each individual thing I'm trying is, so wouldn't want to make any claim about its effect. I'm doing pretty well at the moment, but that could be for any reason. I'm also taking 2x2 Asocol a day (which works well for me), fish oil and enteric peppermint capsules (because I think I may have some IBS thrown in with the IBD). I also add a scoop of chia seed to the haldi drink - which is my 1st breakfast (I have oatmeal or fruit when I get to work) - it's a good contribution to the day's fibre intake.

I've had the Haldi drinks before but I didn't really like the taste and the drinks were kind of expensive. Curcumin is supposed to be a good anti-inflammatory, so it shouldn't make things worse. If you don't want to drink Haldi but still want some curcumin, you can always the buy the actual powder and add it into your food (especially if you're making South Asian or Middle Eastern dishes) or just buy curcumin/turmeric capsules or tablets.

I have been taking Haldi drinks for over a year now, as we all know on this board not every treatment is for everyone, but it was the only thing that has ever controlled my UC.  And it is interesting that I had even taken turmeric/curcumin capsules for months and eventually quit taking them because they never worked either, I guess they dont work well because they are not water soluble, and somehow the drinks have made it more absorbable. (at least that is how I understand it) 

But I even quit taking probiotics in the past because they made me too gassy.  Pb4, have you ever heard of that with the probiotics??

The only other person I know who drinks it works at the hospital with me, and she drinks it for her IBS and GERD.  And I dont like recommending things as a general rule, but for me being able to stop a flare in its tracks, and then within a month coming off prednisone then after that the colazal, again, for me was pretty awesome.  (especially since the prednisone was killing me). Can this be duplicated with every person with UC, obviously according to redbull it was unable to do that.  Good luck, and I hope this helps

Dear All
Hi I am new to this forum. I have been using Haldi (that is turmeric) for quite some time and have been recommending it to others too. I have been a UC patient since 1989. I use fresh home grown Turmeric. I either cut it into small pieces and put it in natural or synthetic vinegar or at times just eat it otherwise. Vinegar is only used as a preservative. The best time to eat this Haldi (Turmeric) is to have it early morning empty stomach. It creates a lining in your stomach, intestines and the food pipe, which prevents any acidity or ulcers. The entire day you feel good and all foods which normally cause reaction or acidity, pass through the system without hitting the intestinal walls. Turmeric is the best healer and antiseptice. Infact in some tribal areas in India, they use Haldi - Turmeric countrymade liquor to cure their problems. Many allopathic medicines for UC also use Turmeric compound.
Have Haldi for Healthy Living is my slogan. You can use it as a paste too. Use fresh home grown. It also available in markets where south Indian vegetables are sold throughout the world. Otherwise grow in your own garden or a small flower pot. Me and my friends familly members have been using it for last over 25 years.
Cheers

You may also try Vitamin E enema as had been tried by me and recommended strongly by Mr. Sheldon on this forum. It saves the colon and cures UC to a great extent.

PSA, I didnt realize turmeric was used for so many things, how does the turmeric liquor taste? I have tried it on my foods, but it seems to stringent for my taste buds. Do you have any recipes that arent so strong?

Yuckygut, I have not tasted Turmeric Liquor, but it is widely used by some tribals in Madhya Pradesh in India to prevent them from digestive disorders as well as out of necessity since it is grown in that area. It is made like any  other country made liquor. Perhaps the Turmeric is fermanted and kept in pitchers either in barrels or pitchers and burried under soil for a few days.

Turmeric definitely has lots of uses as it is one of the best antibiotics. In India it is used to treat lots of ailments, including joint pains, ladies do use it in kitchen to stop bleeding caused due to kitchen knife injuries, parents use it on childern who get cuts during kite flying.

The turmeric which I am referring to is freshly grown turmeric and not the hard one. It is somewhat like fresh ginger. Though initially one may not like the taste, but over a couple of days one gets used to. In any case what's the harm in taking it if it can cure and has no side effects at all. You can grind and eat the paste with bread, but the best is if you have it without anything else and that too empty stomach as it would form a lining and would protect all bile juices from reacting and inflaming your colon throughout the day.

IN case you require any further information, please feel free to ask. But have not had a party so far for country liquor. yes one of my friends, who is a heavy drinker had once left liquor and went to his farm house. When he apprised the farm house labour about his problem, they told him that there is no point in leaving liquor rather he should have turmeric liquor. Moral of the story seems to be that alcoholics do find substitutes to give a high.
