Why is Turmeric so expensive?

Yes, it is a spendy supplement, mainly because of the processing of Turmeric. There are both unconjugated and conjugated curcuminoids in turmeric. The unconjugated are the most medicinal and powerful especially when combined with synergists (e.e. Fenugreek, in its most medicinal and potent form). It’s powerful medicine. At this time Medi-Herb is the only manufacturer in the world of turmeric products that contain the unconjugated curcuminoids. In short, there isn’t a replacement product. However, conjugated curcuminoids are still medicinal! I have used Curcumax Pro by Integrative Therapeutics in the past. I’ve had success in reducing hsCRP (inflammation) and lipids (cholesterol) as well as reducing arthritic pain in patients with its use.

Office Questions

I received some correspondence (Bill/Invoice/EOB) from my insurance company, why did I receive this?

We’d be happy to research this for you. Typically for most of our labs an explanation of benefits (EOB) isn’t alarming. An EOB isn’t a bill, it just informs you that your insurance was billed. It does not mean that the lab is billing you directly whether or not your insurance covers any of the lab cost. Most of our private labs need to show that they billed the patient insurance, but they do not bill the patient.
