Turmeric for Arthritic Knee Pain
Turmeric is amazing! I have been dealing with a swollen side of my knee because I don't have cartridge there for 2 years. I toss and turn at night if I don't have a pillow between my legs because its sore. I finally made a Dr appt with my orthopedic Dr. After doing that I remembered hearing about Turmeric and how it helps inflammation. So I shopped around to get the purest kind with pepper and found one with 1,000 mg. I took 2 pills, the suggested dose on the bottle. This was the middle of the day. By night time the swelling was reduced and I had no problem sleeping on my side without a pillow. My knee was not sore at all!!! Amazing! I'm cancelling my Dr appt.
It has been a week and the swelling has not returned!
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..
I have had terrible pain in my knees for' the last 2 years and have had to give up most activity. Just paid for more' xrays from MD and got same response.. its arthritis degenerative.. take lots of ibuprofen every day and reduce exercise.. like I could reduce from nothing! I ahve been taking turmeric and fish oil/flax oil combination oil for 4 days and I worked a 14 hour shift all on my feet and my knees don't hurt!!!!!!!
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.
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.
