Turmeric dramatically stimulates the flow of bile. In the short run, this could aggravate the problem. In the long run, for most people, turmeric is good for gall bladder and liver health. How a person responds to turmeric or ginger depends on the root of their problem.

Peppermint tea for me is a g-dsend! It is a wonderful thing...the warmth is so nice and peppermint lightly anesticises (spelling?) things - I feeling everything calming with the first swallow! I haven't tried capsules but I know the tea is wonderful.Good luck!Leah

I use peppermint tea for crampy pains and generally find it a calming refreshing drink.I also use Ginger capsules for nausea occasionally.I usually separate the capsule and make a tea from the powdered Ginger inside.Ginger is also an antispasmodic and can help with intestinal cramps too.I haven't ever tried tumeric though.Bobbie
