Anyone had any success taking turmeric? Does it really help?

I am not in to natural/herbal supplements period. However, I am experiencing inflammation not only in my joints, but also in my brain possibly. I have just started taking turmeric. I just realized that it probably doesn't cross the blood/brain barrier so it was a useless purchase. I'm always sceptical of these products because I once had a doctor insist that I take glucosamine sulfate, so I took it for a couple of weeks and had explosive diahrrea for a further two weeks after I stopped taking it. After that experience I have not touched anything herbal.

Are there any of you who have implemented a stricter eating habit for yourselves and your TBI family members?

I don’t mean Necessarily a diet to lose weight. I’m talking about an overall diet for health. Especially TBI health. Although, I will say that my son has gained weight since his TBI. He’s always had a tendency to love to eat, now he seems to not have as much control over what he is eating. I’m looking into healthier alternatives. I keep reading that the Mediterranean diet is a very good option. I’d love to hear your stories.

Is anyone else pretty secure and efficient at living on their own but have one or two things that they just really struggle with?

For me it's that one thing it's cooking. I find it so stressful and overwhelming. Most people don't really understand this and offer to "teach me." I find this degrading, especially when they're much younger than me.
