Turmeric supplement gives relief from burning foot syndrome

I'm new to this forum and I have hypothyroidism and I am coeliac. Just recently I started taking turmeric supplements for a bit of joint pain I had. As a side-effect I noticed that it has given me considerable relief from the burning feet that I suffer from at night. This may not work for everyone but it may be worth a try if you suffer in the same way. It has also helped with the joint pain. I was skeptical at first but I feel better for taking it.

Thank you for sharing this. I also suffer from very hot feet during the night especially when it's hot. I'm glad something has helped you. I have Hashimoto's and I'm still not optimally medicated. I also have a gluten intolerance. I've heard this happens if you're undertreated. Is that the case with you?

Could you please share which specific supplement has helped? Thanks


Hi Serendipitous The supplement I have used is Thisilyn Turmeric Extra. It contains both turmeric and artichoke extract. I think the advice about getting vitamin B 12 levels checked is good advice - the vitamin supplements didn't really help me but it seems the Turmeric has. What works for one person does not always help another. I bought my supplement from Boots and Im sure it is also available online. I hope you find something that helps you soon.


I found burning feet (& hands) were helped by adding vitamin B complex. Mine started about a month after starting vitamin D supplements. I have Hashimoto's and gluten intolerance

I read this article ....and thought it worth trying. Was very effective, burning stopped about 3-5 days after starting B complex (plus B12 lozenges for pins & needles that started after started B complex)



It would be a very good idea to get your vit B12 tested - certainly before supplementing it. You need to know your level before taking any B vits. But, burning sensations can be due to low B12, and this shouldn't be ignored.


Hi Greygoose

I have been down the vitamin B12 route before and found the supplement of very limited effect for me but thanks anyway. I think what works for one does not always work for another.


Perhaps you didn't take enough or for long enough. Did you get your B12 tested first?


I did and took the supplement for about 6 months.


I always had above range B12 without supplementing. But after I added B Complex then got pins & needles (low B12)

Apparently we need all the B's together not just B12.

If one is too low the others can't be used. Dr Gominack suggests B5 is the culprit in that article & we should supplement all the B's together


There is a tumeric supplement being heavily advertised in national press that also contains soya also said to be very good for health. One to avoid if hypo.
