Improve Your Mood With Turmeric Root (Curcumin)
"Dr. Sears," C.R. asked me, "I know curcumin is good for treating a lot of things, but can it improve someone's mood?" This morning, one of the women on my staff, C.R., came into my office to talk to me about her 15-year-old son. He'd been irritable and moody and sleeping a lot lately.
