Is it safe to switch from Plavix to Curcumin?
This is not recommended
plavix is a drug which means that medical studies have been conducted and we do know that it benefits your condition (PVD). Curcumin on the other hand is not a drug and no medical study has shown its effectiveness and safety for PVD or other conditions.
So in conclusion, I would advise you against its use.
Curcumin is not used with today's knowledge
there are some studies that have shown encouraging results regarding its use but no proper medical study has provided sufficient data regarding it's effectiveness. Perhaps more studies will be conducted in the future...
By today's medical knowledge curcumin cannot and should not replace plavix for any indication.
I'll be glad to take a look at the studies you're talking about though.
Can you provide any links?
I've found that too
I had read that before answering to you in the first place. If you read the whole article and reach the end of it, you'll notice that the author who described all the potentially beneficial actions of curcumin, concluded that it cannot be used yet.
Drugs have to be officially approved for some indication before doctors can advise patients to use them. So until more data are available (hopefully they will be some day), using curcumin cannot be recommended.
