I’ve done a ton of research about Turmeric to know more about its benefits and surprisingly it’s got quite a deep history entrenched in the Eastern part of the world.
Since ancient times, India has been using Turmeric not only in their culinary activities but also in the medical scene. It is also widely regarded as an important ingredient in rituals and ceremonies. Turmeric has been regarded as an important part of Ayurvedic medicine, an ancient natural healing Indian practice that is still being done today. It has been a part of their religion and tradition, and millions of East Indians (and also Chinese) have used this Golden Spice generations upon generations.
Indian traditions have dubbed Turmeric as a divine plant gifted by the gods!
BUT it’s only now that modern medicine acknowledges its superior health benefits. Numerous researches have been conducted to investigate the health properties of this ancient ingredient and they have proved that Turmeric indeed has superior health benefits. It has been found that Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties that provide relief from osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
With all the evidence and proof, I cannot wait to try it out myself. Aside from these findings and the results that my health practitioner friend experienced, the numerous claims from other senior people I know further convince me that I need to try it out.
To give you some background about my arthritis, I get joint pains at different times of the day. Extremely bad in the mornings…...
It felt like it’s getting worse by the week…...
The worst part was the inability to do the things that I love, like stitching and baking. Even simple activities, like walking from the kitchen to the bathroom, were becoming such a huge task! And most importantly, as a grandmother, I couldn’t spend a long time playing with my grand kids because of the pain. As I age, my inflammation worsened and I was about to give up on finding the right cure.
You might have argued that I’m eating the wrong foods but I have since adapted a healthy diet years ago. I mostly eat veggies. I renounced MSG, processed and fried foods. I even stopped taking dairy and ice cream (my favorite midnight snack)! I managed my joint pains better but it still hindered me from moving and doing things.
A couple of months or years is all it takes for our joint pains to turn from bearable to completely painful and we miss doing things on our own and having our “normal” body back. I have some friends and relatives who are experiencing the physical, emotional, and mental pain that arthritis can give.
