|BETTER BUT NOT CURED (2)||20%|
[YEA] I had knee pain for years. My knees were so swollen I could not even see them. The doctor prescribed NSAIDS, but I am not sure how much difference it made. I bought various things for arthritis, but nothing really helped. It did no harm. Then I started to read up on it, and most things i took contained Ginger, tumeric and others. I started taking Tumeric on its own 3 capsules a day and within 7 days my knees were almost pain free!!! i would recommend tumeric to anyone..

[YEA] I just want to thank the people who set up this website. I was experiencing paintful arthritis in both shoulders and I found your site and read about using Turmeric. That was several weeks ago and now I can truly say that taking the Turmeric has changed everything! The pain is nearly gone. I still have some slight discomfort, but nothing like I was going through before the Turmeric. I am praising God for His wonderful herbs and for inspiring all of the folks who write in with their testimonies. I take two 400 mg capsules three times a day and one 500 mg ginger capsule 3 times a day. This site is the best!!! Plus, I have contacted several people on the site who were so helpful and responded with great advice and encouragement. Health and blessings to all.Posted by Cathy (Richland, Washington) on 09/17/2007

[YEA] I have used turmeric as a joint pain remedy and it has always worked for me. I usually take 1 tsp in hot milk and it relieves all forms of body pains, joint pains.Posted by Bill (Califon, NJ)
[YEA] I have had severe knee and lower leg pain for over one year. All the doctors say my knees have normal wear and tear but they always hurt and especially at night. I took 1600 mg of turmeric (800 x2 day) and after about six weeks the pain almost all gone and flexibility is returning.

[NAY] I tried eating masses of tumeric sprinkled on my food--and always non radiated tumeric--like about 2-3 tablespoons with no change to the chronic conditions I have which include immune disorder, skin problems. Why? Is it because I have severe digestive problems that i'm not digesting the tumeric. Any suggestions? Oh, to add, I always take probiotics and enzymes, am on a whole foods organic diet for more than 20 years BUT I have Post traumatic stress disorder which I've learned from various healers wreaks havoc with the body, and mind of course! I've done extensive clearing and healing working with shaman, psychotherapists-and am better mentally, well, still some to go but certainly better but my body just keeps getting more and more ill. I wish and imagine good health for me! Any suggestions? To Joy, Peace, JanetReplied by Sara
