Turmeric has tons of wonderful benefits with very few side effects. I started taking it for pain a few years ago. It greatly reduces the inflammation and stiffness in my hands, even better than the arthritis medicines that I had originally tried. I am very sensitive to medicine. The arthritis medicine made me vomit and hurt my stomach. I couldn’t eat when I took it. I’ve also had negative reactions to pain medication. Usually with the severe side effects like struggling to breathe and itching all over. If you’re like me and struggle to take medicine, then turmeric might be a good alternative for you.
According to Dr. Axe, when examining the research, turmeric benefits go beyond that of these 12 kinds of conditions and treatments:
• Anti-inflammatory drugs
• Antidepressants (Prozac)
• Anticoagulants (Aspirin)
• Diabetes drugs (Metformin)
• Arthritis medications
• Inflammatory bowel disease drugs
• Cholesterol drugs (Lipitor)
• Skin Care including acne and psoriasis
If you’d like to try it for yourself, you can get it on Amazon by clicking here.
Not all turmeric is the same. In order to be effective, if you are taking a supplement, it needs to have black pepper and 95 % curcuminoids. If you take medicine or are unsure if you should try it or not, contact your doctor.
I hope it helps you as much as it has helped me.
Love and blessings,
