8. Regulate blood sugar
As an ongoing therapy to reduce the chance of diabetes, turmeric is a spice you should add regularly to food. When you have eaten something that will make your blood sugar spike, such as cake or cookies, take 2 capsules of turmeric to regain balance. However, if you already take medication for diabetes, consult with your doctor before adding turmeric to your diet. It could cause your blood sugar levels to fall too low. A naturopathic doctor will help you incorporate turmeric, with the possible goal of reducing your need for medication.
