    Don't know if I've found any help with it's anti-inflammatory effects, have been using turmeric in many dishes for some time, like the yellow colour and the taste sometimes. Husband like curries, so I make them quite a lot. Could be that it's made some difference that I'm unaware of.

    Going to try turmeric tea, see if I can handle drinking it and my husband too. He has a swollen bruise from a piece of ice that hit his shin while he was shoveling. It might reduce the inflammation from the bruising.

    It doesn't taste like I thought it would, it's not terrible tasting and has a mild flavor. I expected it to taste like chili powder and burn my tongue, but it's not bad.

    There were some changes to my sinus problems, which happen every winter. Had two cups of the tea, and this morning there was less swelling around the eyes. Think I'll try making the tonic as well. Don't know how often I can use it, and how it might affect my stomach lining. But there were noticeable results. Over the long term I don't know yet.

    Day three of the turmeric tea experiment. Noticeable changes, less congestion in the sinuses. Swelling around the eyes and inflammation inside the nose has lessened.
