After successfully treating with antivenin, many (most?) people experience serious infectious problems from pathogenic bacteria from the snake. 

Dr Tommy Wood describes his encounter with a Fleur de Lance in Costa Rica, somewhere...  It wasn't pleasant.

Indeed. Besides the potential for venom, the snake bites often become infected if not properly treated.

Add to that the possibility of other negative consequences that might result from the application of anti-scientific quack "cures."

I don’t believe there is a anti-venom for the copperhead snake in use.

I'm no herpetologist, but I still think it's potentially deadly advice to direct snakebite victims away from emergency rooms. That was the whole point of the picture, as well as my follow-up comments.

Probably better to have said just that then rather than make false statements.

Yeah, I can only hope that the copperhead snake bite post was not seriously requesting medical advice, because if that's the case then somebody probably died as a consequence.
This is false.

Bites from copperheads are very rarely fatal.

Does anyone know about using Tumeric as an anti-inflammatory for joint, muscle, and back pain? I saw some promotion for it and I'm going to give it a try. I hope I haven't just fallen for a scam. Only 7 bucks though.

I take one capsule of the local (NZ) brand daily.  It has helped  the osteoarthritis in my left ankle.  It certainly hasn't cured it, of course, but has mitigated the chronic pain and increased mobility.

I think I might send away for a liposomal brand, though.  It seems that a study shows that (like other micronutrients) that fat helps  absorption by the body,

It's delicious in a curry. There's little to no evidence of health benefits.

Yeah, you've been had. I just checked the website of a major Australian supermarket chain. Turmeric from the culinary aisle costs $4.89 for a 10g bottle. A similarly-sized bottle of supplemental turmeric capsules costs $17.00.

Apparently, it needs to be paired with peppercorn to be meaningfully bioavailable. That and capsuling them would justify some price difference from cooking Tumeric. Assuming it's true. My markup wasn't as bad.

Can confirm that turmeric and pepper are absolutely delicious in a curry. Try also a little cumin and diced birdseye chilli. Remove the seeds if you don't want it too fiery.
