Turmeric Extract Puts Drugs For Knee Osteoarthritis to Shame

Prior to 2005, I was suffering from crippling, painful osteoarthritis. I could predict rain was coming 3 days in advance. Winters were horrendous and I could barely get out of bed or walk. I would sleep with heating pads and wrap my legs up with three or four layers of leggings to stay warm. Refusing to have surgery and take the recommended non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), I researched for natural, healthy pain relief. I found Turmeric and I am pain free today! ~Marion

Laboratory tests have found that turmeric is antioxidant and antimutagenic, as it potentially helps prevent new cancers that are caused by chemotherapy or radiation used to treat existing cancers. Turmeric in the diet may prevent pain from arthritis, bursitis and tendonitis. A volatile oil in the spice is as
effective in relieving pain, under laboratory conditions, as equal amounts of steroids.

CAUTION: The only side effects found with Turmeric is it can cause constipation, sweating and even diarrhea if too much is taken. Limit dosage to 1/2 teaspoon per day.

1/2 teaspoon in 4 oz of water. Drink.

I prefer to add 1/2 tsp. of Turmeric to hot cereal. Just add to the water before boiling and cooking. It also tastes great in soups, vegetable, egg and meat dishes. Feel free to experiment.
Here are 20 reasons to add turmeric to your diet:

1. It is a natural ANTISEPTIC and ANTIBACTERIAL agent, useful in disinfecting cuts and burns.

  • Reblogged this on MisBehaved Woman and commented:
    Really fantastic information!

    • Thank you for the reblog, MisBehavedWoman. Turmeric has been a miracle in my life. My husband who thought it was all in my head has been using Turmeric for 3 months straight because he now has arthritis too. The other day he woke up and said he was sorry he did not listen to me earlier. He can now sleep without joint pain and is running again. This stuff works!

  • Jamie Dedes says:

    I’ve read ths before. Pretty powerful stuff. My doc actually prescribes it.

  • I will check this product tomorrow. My knees and ankles are causing me such havoc. Not taking anti inflammatories would be so welcome.

    • Lesley, use the product faithfully and in one month you will notice a difference. No side effects and you will realize so many other benefits. I also highly recommend taking Apple Cider Vinegar to balance the alkalinity in the body. It’s another miracle cure. :)

      • Apple cider vinegar on its own? I will only if I have too :D Do I put it in a shot glass and hold me nose?

      • !!!! I HAD to find this comment. I am happy to report after only 8 days of taking Turmeric and following 2.5 years of not being able to put both arms behind my back, which caused the greatest pain to my shoulder TADAH – I was able to.
        I did not take Apple Cider Vinegar but have concocted a great water mix using
        I think it may be tackling the alkalinity balance for me.

        Now for the knees, wrists and an elbow and both ankles … with time and patience we`ll see.
        Thanks for the hint. Funny thing was, the woman at the health food store said there was a run of people asking for Turmeric because of something Dr. Oz had said. I was laughing. :)

      • Thank you for following up with your testimony, Lesley. And so happy for your new found flexibility. As the days go on, you will be rewarded with many health benefits like energy, vitality, endurance and well being which will bring you great joy to do all the things you want to do. Yes, it is the alkalinity balance that does it. It doesn’t matter if you use apple cider vinegar, lemons, limes or some other source. They all work the same. I stopped using lemons because it was weakening the enamel on my teeth. Apple Cider Vinegar with baking soda does no harm. :)

  • Lesley, I don’t recommend ACV alone. Take it with baking soda to protect tooth enamel and make the taste tolerable. It ends up tasting like Alka Seltzer. Here it is:

    2 tablespoons ACV in a glass of water
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    Stir. Sip slowly the first time to avoid nausea. The nausea comes from the ACV killing bacteria in your gut. After the first time if you do it regularly, you won’t have this issue. Drink it first think in the morning before eating or drinking anything. Can use it as you would aspirin, cold remedies, heart burn and so on. Can take it several times a day for the rest of your life with no side effects.

    Buy ACV in a health food store. You can also buy online for a better buy. You want it to say “organic with the mother in it.” The mother is the apple pulp.
