The use of tumeric as a pain killer

I have been reading a lot about using Tumeric as a pain killer for helping with Fibromyalgia and Arthritis pain and other inflammation. I thought someone had asked of the effectiveness it is a highly effective painkiller and could be useful to us in our armour against pain.

The dose it would seem must be kept below 1500 a day and of course it does have

quite a few side effects that need to be taken into consideration.

I have had a long look and have made the decision to try it but watch the side effects there are more than I would have liked.

However, I am a believer in natural medicine so perhaps it is the WAY .

Can we just eat loads of Indian food ;)

I know it's really good for you, but hadn't realised you could get it as a supplement.

Cheers for the info Gins.

Oh gins, you've stirred that vacant space where once my brain resided, I think I read an article about this some time back but of course it got lost in the mele of my well known fogginess. Unfortunately my tummy doesn't agree with curry, so I think I might just head for the tablet form, like Dee.

By the way, the chicken biriani and chicken passanda with gluten free naan (which tasted like normal naan bread) was fabulissimi..!

You think you can buy me off with a couple dodgy chickens and spices, and there I was making chilli for you............

Foggy crawls off into the friendless corner and weeps huge tears of woe :-( :-( ;-)

I hope you're using quorn mince for that chilli, but given revenge is imminent I know it going to be the proper stuff..!

Note to self... beware an invite to dinner with Foggy and find out where the toilets are ;)

You can come out of the friendless corner now. I think Zeb likes you ;) ;) ;) xx

I make a juice with my juicer, with carrots, celery, turmeric (1/2 teaspoon) beetroot, spinach, lemon juice (a splash) it doesn't taste too hot but it is good for energy boost, keep it up and in a month you'll feel a difference in the energy side. Don't go too mad with the activity side in moderation. Weight loss juice is good too, celery, grapefruit, lemon juice in the juicer and drink every morning. If your on any medication please check before having grate fruit as some medication could react to it, if stated in box or in med leaflet then find alternatives such as raspberries etc.

hi panther that sounds really tasty with the exception to celery :-o

I cannot have grapefruit because of the statins that I have to take and it does state on the label the chemist prints out. It really narks me too because I love pink grapefruits :(

yummy I may try it! :0

xxxzebxxx and fluffies in celery green, beetroot red and turmeric yellow hope you like their cuddliness

My fingers, arms, ankles, feet itch a lot despite itch cream from Dr.. I'd like o try Tumeric, and have the powder but how? It's hard to be sociable. Sat at dinner with small part of family, got up and down a bit and at the really hurt a lot, bottom muscles, knees, then some IBS? later at home. seems I can't

know when it hits. Don't want to be social situation, even with family. Too hard to remember words, ,,,,ambien helps sleep but so does OTC allergy med which helps itching too. .hope all get relief. M.A.
