Hi,

Does Tumeric have anti bacterial or anti fungal or anti viral properties? Would it cause herx when first started?

It might help the abx get deeper into your cells and tissues like a systemic enzyme would.

I started Swanson' curcumin recently (800+ mg) and had no problems with it. I regularly have "herx" reactions to antibiotics and antivirals. The curcumin gave me no such reaction.

Curcumin does seem to have antiviral properties, but I don't know at what dose....

Best, Timaca

I don't know if it causes a herx or not but I started taking it during a herx for pain and to lower the cytokine response.

I had the most severe herx I've ever had, but I don't think it was because of the Turmeric.

My experience after taking high dose of the raw herb on and off over the last 10 years is that it does cause a pronounced die off reaction. It took me a few cycles of starting up, feeling better for several days, and then worse to really understand what was going on. I credit turmeric for keeping me at or near 100% during this period. I would go off it for a month or two at a time due to being lazy and forgeting about lyme. When symptoms creep back, I would go back on it. I suspect it kills spirochetes and it is not simply supressing inflamation.

I am only back here now due to being re-bitten a couple weeks ago while I was off the turmeric, debating starting a round of antibiotics.

My daughter is on Enhansa which is pharmacutical grade tumeric. I do believe she herxes on it.

Two of us take Enhansa and had to work up slowly due to herxing. It wasn't terrible but we started it 1.5 years into treatment.
