Turmeric, or Curcuma, is commonly used to help support appetite loss, liver and gallbladder problems.
Turmeric can also be used internally for indigestion, gas, bloating, stomach pain, cramps, diarrhea, fever, swelling, bronchitis, colds, chest infections, kidney and bladder inflammation, headaches, and missed menstrual periods.
(Applied externally, it has been used as product for bruises, leech bites, festering eye infections, inflammation in the mouth, inflamed skin, and infected wounds. Its value for any of these complaints has not, however, been scientifically verified.)
Turmeric is more commonly used as a spice than for health, though it does seem to have anti-inflammatory properties. Among its many mildly health uses are immunity-supporting and disinfectant activity, support for liver damage, and stimulation of bile production. The medicinal part of the plant is its fleshy underground stem.
Turmeric comes from a leafy perennial with huge, lily-like leaves that grow nearly 4 feet in length. The plant is probably native to India, but today is cultivated throughout tropical southern Asia and Indonesia.
