Is turmeric any good for SIBO? Well, turmeric’s a spice, which is fantastic. It’s been used for so many conditions. If you go to Google and do some Googling, some searching on studies on tumeric and IBS tumeric, and Crohn’s disease, turmeric and colitis, there’s definitely a link there with turmeric affecting people positively.
But what I find interesting is when people read these sort of things, so they straight away and go to an Asian grocery store or the supermarket. They’ll buy a pound of tumeric, they’ll start taking tablespoons of it every day, thinking it’s going to cure their disease. It doesn’t work like that. Okay? You can’t put large amounts of tumeric into your diet and expect it to work like that. Small amounts regularly in the diet, use it in cooking. It certainly works. But remember, your body, you got to get used to this spice. All right? Put it in there slowly, and build up the quantity. Okay?
Unless you’ve grown accustomed to tumeric or had this really in your family, traditionally, for a long time, you’re not really going to take to it that well. Most people I speak to who start taking tumeric up in their diet, beginning to take it, take too much and get all kinds of bowel problems as a result. So I’m saying start off with a very small amount and have it every now and then, and see how it goes. All right?

Turmeric and ginger belong to the same family. I will often recommend both of these interchangeably to be used, up to one to two teaspoons per day, in severe conditions like rheumatoid arthritis or Crohn’s disease. These are like bad autoimmune conditions with significant pain levels. So I not care so much about the bowel in this case, the effects of turmeric on it, but more of the anti-inflammatory effects. And it definitely works, if you take it regularly, regularly, regularly. There are many ways you can take tumeric. Some people say you need to add a bit of fat compound with it, for it to work better.
If you think about tumeric, it has always been traditionally used in curries and cooking, involving oils and coconut oil and ghee and things like that. So, it probably works better with fat, and you can certainly make up nice lentil dishes. The tumeric, it partners well with coriander and other spices, mixed by spices for sure.
But yeah, the question is, is it good for SIBO? I would say absolutely. But remember incorporate small amounts in your diet to get that nice low grade anti-inflammatory effect. Small amounts of tumeric regularly in the diet purportedly work as good as ibuprofen, in terms of their ability to reduce inflammation in the body. Turmeric is not going to do so much for the bacteria in there, but it’s certainly going to help to bolster up a certain immune aspects in the small intestine. So, but yeah, I would say it’s definitely a good product to incorporate in your diet if you have got SIBO.
