I have been taking boswellia and sarsparilla which are herbs for almost a year for inflammation. It has been very helpful which is why I feel compelled to share this with you. I suffer from inflammation and fibromyalgia like symptoms although I have never been diagnosed. I use Boswellia seretta (must contain boswellic resins) which is also known as Frankincense. I bought my own in bulk from mountain rose herbs and cap them myself because I take so much. I take 2 capsules a day about 3 times a day.
I have had gut problems for years. (I have an extra-long colon, like twice normal length.) General inflammation, sometimes burning an inch or two below my sternum ( a good remedy for that is pancreatic enzymes), a pointed ache in the gall bladder area (just below right ribs) whenever I ate anything with fat, and a pain in the left lower corner of the abdomen aftter eating. I did an all night castor oil pack and all of these symptoms have disappeared and have not come back.
This simple yet delicious tea has been a life saver many times. One time I had a bad case of chemical poisioning and I had sores and welts all over my eyes, face and mouth. It happened so quick I freaked out and reached for some chrysanthemum tea. Within minutes it all calmed down and I was normal again. Generally in Asia this tea is used to bring down heat and inflamation like canker sores. Hard to believe because it's so sweet. The kind I use is the powdered kind in packets. Just mix with water. You can also use the dried flowers but I have a problem with the dried pollen.
question; are anti-oxidants also anti-inflamatory? i realize anti-oxidents get rid of free radicals, however...?
Hi I went to the Doctor for a blood test and it revealed that my ESR was 50. She has arranged an appointment to go back in. I understand that this is in relation to inflammation in the body. Does anybody know how to reduce this figure. Coincidentally, last week, I had read that ginger is a natural anti inflammatory and was thinking of using it in cooking. Does anybody know how much raw/grated ginger is safe to use for the average adult per day, or even in baking how much should be used say in cakes/scones etc. Thanks
I wanted to add juicing cannabis leaves to the list of remedies for inflammation.
Vegetable juices great for inflammation!!
I've been suffering from inflammation all my life, there is no diet that make lose weight, I have noticed however that all grains: corn, chicken peas, all beans, rice, wheat, potatoes make me to gain from 4 to 6 pounds easily during the night!! My meal doesn't even weight that much! So I just don't eat them. But lately I started juicing and I have noticed big changes in my body. Hands, arms, knees, ankles are now a lot better. I can feel my bones now.
I drink a big glass of vegetable and fruit juice in the morning as a breakfast and that's all. My diet is the same so it has to be the juicing! I don't have a recipe I just put on the blender what I have in my refrigerator that day (carrots, apple, pears, strawberries, banana, any fruit and cucumber, celery, spinach and any other leaves I got. I would say I'm impressed.

I have been getting very good results taking Manuka honey for gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining). I take it twice a day... Once before bed and again in the morning. Taking it with a piece of bread slows down absorption and keeps it in the stomach longer.
The use of north pole magnets (using a very powerful neodymium magnets) will help reduce inflammation. South pole increases inflammation, so please take note to apply the correct one. To identify the north pole is to get a compass. If the north pointing compass points to your magnet. It means this side is north. So mark the positions accordingly. The idea is well accepted in sports area, but are not well accepted in conventional medicine. Sports people need results and the faster they heal, the faster they can compete.
Does anybody know how much is safe to take of tumeric for inflammation. I see you can get 400mg tablets/capsules. Also would it be safe to take with medication.Thanks

I have been using Turmeric for my inflammation for 2 years now and swear by it. I have an autoimmune disease which causes a lot of inflammation. I take 1 tablespoon a day and it keeps my swelling way down.I am now goiter free and do not need thyroid removal surgery. If I go off of it the swelling picks back up and my goiter returns. I have taken it in capsule form or by mixing it with water and swallowing fast!
I use turmeric, it works like magic for me - I have Crohn's disease, and finds it helps ease inflammation. All the anti-inflammatory pills that the doctor gave me only made me MUCH worse. Turmeric helps stop the 'loose stools'.
