Doug E Turmeric Products

I am Doug English an Australian veterinarian with years of experience and have been using turmeric therapeutically in my patients for the past several years with good results. At first I was not sure about the effects vs hard drugs but soon realised that turmeric was very beneficial for many inflammatory and degenerative processes in animals, and not just mammals because I saw good results in reptiles and birds.
Many clients were sceptical and so I started a Facebook Group called Turmeric User Group to collate data  on how turmeric was being used and told everybody with an animal that I prescribed turmeric for, to please give back anecdotal evidence as to the effects: both good or bad.
Now  I had hoped to get several hundred anecdotes to give credibility,  but the group has grown to an extent far beyond my expectations and currently the member numbers are pushing 180,000 all over the world with numerous daily positive anecdotes in all species, including humans. 
While there are many scientific articles to support the data there are some gaps that need further investigation and some of these I would like to investigate and I have formed associations with researchers at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga Australia and the University of Queensland at Gatton Australia,  to initially investigate turmeric use as a cure for gastric ulceration in equines and turmeric use in sarcoid tumours in equines. I would also like to do absorption trials in equines, dogs, and other animals such as reptiles, as we generate $ from sales of turmeric products.
I have been doing my own research along the way and have developed 4 products that use all natural sustainable healthy ingredients with enhanced absorption of the turmeric components that are the unique anti-inflammatory components.
I now need to fund the production of larger quantities of these for export overseas and will begin with a health bar, that I have now produced, which contains 10 doses of turmeric, and these are designed to cut each dose off the end. I have trialled these and feedback as to taste and effect is very positive. They have a shelf life of 12 months and able to be carried in a handbag without refrigeration.
I am up and going now and as soon as I pay to have the larger quantities manufactured I can ship product.

The money will be used for:
1. production of the health bars in bigger quantity.
2. development of further products organically
3. expansion of turmeric farm/s sustainably and organically so that I have control over the quality of the turmeric to be used.
4. support and carry out research with turmeric at reputable universities and my own animal trials.

Thank you for the support. I have closed the campaign now and will concentrate on manufacturing the TU*GO bars to generate money needed for the projects.
Thank you.

This is my second donation. Not a lot, but if we all help with small amounts, it can add up to HUGE amounts, which would be so wonderful! Appreciate the work Doc and Adam Ingo are doing!!
