Is it known if Dr. Okrand got the word turmiq from the word turmeric?

More likely from twisting around the word micturate.

Somebody went to medical school and it wasn't me. This is the first time in my life I ever came across that word. Funny how much English I learn while learning Klingon. I wish that would decrease my dad's sneering contempt for me learning Klingon but that will never happen.
