I am not sure if it is possible to OD on turmeric. (I knew some people who ate raw turmeric on a daily basis -- the ones that look kind of like a knobbly little finger. Their skin was amazing as a result.) A bigger barrier may be the taste if too much is added to the food. But then that's what we have the turmeric caps for. Initial doses might need to be aggressive to help with the arthritis.

Ground turmeric is also a powerful wound healer because of its anti-microbial properties. Usually, turmeric powder or paste is applied pretty liberally on the wound itself and it really helps speed up the healing process. The paste is going to be a lot less messy of course but be careful, it stains like crazy! You should see my kitchen counters I cook a LOT with turmeric.

Interesting - wonder if this relates to Grim's apparent kidney stones where we acidified the urine with diet and cleared up: Turmeric and oxalate. I was reading up because I have been eating a number of dark leafy greens and feel like maybe I could be getting a kidney stone (I had one years ago.......) The dose was not that thigh in the experimental study.

If you have a truck or SUV get a RAMP. I am certain a lifetime of jumping out of crates in the back of a pickup truck did a number on his back and shoulders
Jocoyn, I couldn't agree more!! My GSD goes to work with me. 90 lbs banging onto his neck, shoulders, and elbows 4 times a day (we go out for lunch) did some serious damage. We recently got a ramp for my SUV and Traveler is already showing improvement. Now he waits for me to extend the ramp for exiting; he's no dummy
