Turmeric is a herb. It is anti-inflammatory. Humans started to consume it when the approach became more medicinal in nature to fix eliminations like cold, cough, applying on wounds etc. Habit of using it in the cooking was to ensure that all the family members can consume it.

However, when you start looking at natural ways of living, we focus on giving more power to the body to self-heal, not stop the eliminations with a suppressor, easing the digestion during that time and not stopping an inflammation forcibly. In this approach, the reason why our ancestors used turmeric does not really matter. Do you taste turmeric in your cooking? No isn't it?

So, unless you know how turmeric plays a role in visually enhancing the dish or enhancing the taste of the dish, you don't have to consume it. If you have grown fresh turmeric, there is no harm in using some for your raw juices or using it in a herbal drink as a replacer for your coffee tea.

To summarize the answer, No, it's not necessary to consume turmeric on a daily basis. Correcting the habits will improve your lifestyle and remove the need for suppressors.

Hello Hawa,

Turmeric has been part of our Indian diet since a very long time, this has some special effects on our body mainly medicinal. Any kind of inflammatory condition can be wisely tackled with the use of turmeric, an ideal thing which we need to take is what should be the dosage of turmeric in our daily food? If you are taking turmeric in small quantities it will be beneficial for your health.

Avoid taking it in large quantities and regular consumption of it. If you are controlling the quantity it won't affect your health.

Hopefully, this was helpful,

Thank you

प्राकृतिक जीवन शैली केे अनुसार हल्दी प्रतिदिन के खाने में यूज करने से 2 तरीके का नुकसान होता है पहला हल्दी एक ब्लड थिनर है वह रक्त को पतला करता है। किसी तरीके केेे एक्सीडेंट मेे रक्त के बहाव  में तेजी आती है यदि रक्त पतला हो तो। इस हल्दी का तासीर एंटीबायोटिक होता है प्रकृति ने हल्दी को एंटीबायोटिक के रूप में दिया है तो एंटीबायोटिक हम तब लेते हैं जब हम स्वस्थ ना हो तब हम नहीं लेते हैं जबकि हम हर प्रकार से स्वस्थ हो। प्रतिदिन एंटीबायोटिक का यूज कर रहे हैं तो हमारा बॉडी उसके प्रति अपनी रिसेप्टिविटी को कम कर देता है क्योंकि उसको जो चीज रोज मिल रहा है उसके प्रति शरीर यूज टू हो जाताा है। हमें इसके कारण हल्दी की जरूरत जब पड़ती है तब हम हल्दी का सेवन करते हैं तो वह हम पर असर नहीं कर पाता है। अगर हम उसको दिन प्रतिदिन यूज ना करें तो जरूरत पड़ने पर एंटीबायोटिक की तरह फायदा करेगा। 
प्राकृतिक चिकित्साा पद्धति में हल्दी को प्रतिदिन खाना बनाने समय यूज करना सलाह में नहीं है मगर दवा की तरह अस्वस्थ होने पर उसका प्रयोग कर सकते हैं। 
प्राकृतिक संसाधनोंं का प्रयोग और विधा नहीं जानने पर हम उनका ठीक प्रकाार से उपयोग नहीं कर पातेे हैं।
