I do know turmeric works for me. My feet and heels hurt terribly after walking for health outside or on my treadmill. This works! It took a few days but it has changed my life. Turmeric is cheap even at our health food store. I take this mix once a day and am able to walk as long as I want.
I put 1/4 teaspoon in a glass with a bit of olive oil. I then grind black pepper into the mix, stir and add a bit of warm water. This I drink though I do have to add water and stir a few more times. I use olive oil because this is what we have though any liquid oil would work. The oil keeps the Tumeric from upsetting your stomach and the black pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric. I started this after reading here that it reduced inflammation.
Turmeric for Inflammation
We use turmeric very much in our cooking. For a family of 4 we will use at least 1tsp - 2 tsp of turmeric powder in daily cooking in variety of recipes.
You can take a 1/2 tsp - 1 tsp of turmeric powder daily without any issues.
I recommend you to buy food grade turmeric powder in your local indian grocery store and use. It is very much cheaper when compared to capsules in bottle.
200 gms of turmeric powder is only $2.99 here in Canada.
Good Health, 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'.
