I think you really need a professional in the area where your brother lives -- some sort of geriatric care manager, or case manager, social worker -- someone who knows the ropes in that specific area, and knows their way around, can keep an eye on [more]

Re: Turmeric Side Effects

I use freshly grated turmeric maybe once or twice a week but I can't say I notice a cause and effect relationship.

Re: Turmeric Side Effects

I use turmeric in smoothies, and cut up in salads, along with ginger root. I honestly feel that I get a sense of ease, or well being, by eating them. It might be all in my head, but I do get that sense. Does anyone else feel that [more]
