Benefits Of Turmeric To Treat Ulcer Disease?
In the past, I had an ulcer disease by consuming turmeric starch, God bless it healed. but now the kambu is getting sick to the gut, does the turmeric starch have side effects if it is consumed in the long term?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is known to have various health benefits, including one in overcoming and preventing dyspepsia syndrome (indigestion), which is a group of symptoms that arise due to increased production of stomach acid, increased sensitivity of the digestive tract to stomach acid, and gastric motility disorders. This condition is often characterized by the sensation of nausea, vomiting, tightness, heat, propping, stinging, and other discomfort that appears predominantly in the upper abdomen, it can also spread to the chest, throat, back, or other areas of the stomach.
How exactly turmeric works to produce this effect is still not clear. However, many literature states that this effect is due to the curcumin content in turmeric which is known to relieve inflammation (inflammation), including inflammation around the stomach.
There is still no adequate research that has tested the extent to which a safe dose of turmeric can produce these benefits, without causing harmful side effects. There is a literature that states that to treat dyspepsia syndrome, patients are advised to consume turmeric 4 times a day for at least 7 days to help make people with dyspepsia syndrome feel more comfortable. However, as mentioned above, the truth of this matter still needs to be tested through further research, including the potential side effects that may result from long-term consumption of turmeric.
The pain in the gut that you are currently experiencing is probably still part of the dyspepsia syndrome you experienced before. Excessive consumption of turmeric can also exacerbate this condition. Or, maybe there are organic disorders that underlie your complaint, for example GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), gastric ulcers, gastric cancer, gastritis, cholangitis, pancreatitis, and so on. It could also be that the pain in the gut actually comes from organs other than the digestive organs, for example the lungs, heart, muscles, bones, and so on.
Our advice is that you stop consuming turmeric first to solve your complaints. Check with yourself directly to a doctor or an internal medicine specialist so that the doctor can give you the best treatment. Avoid consuming foods or drinks that have the potential to exacerbate complaints, for example foods that are too spicy, fatty, fried, contain lots of gas, caffeine, and alcohol. Increase first consume warm water (preferably plain water). Get used to eat regularly, eat little but often is better than eating a lot but rarely. Avoid excessive stress or anxiety. Also avoid taking drugs at random (including pain medications). Do lots of positive activities, such as exercise and meditation, so that complaints don't recur and recur.
