Millions of people turn to painkillers on a daily basis, with the hope to soothe the pain in the back, head, or any other body area. However, these drugs increase the risk of numerous severe health issues, such as strokes and heart attacks.
This made the FDA issue a warning concerning the use of drugs like Advil, Motrin, Celebrex, Aleve, Naprosyn, and Toredol. Apparently, these are the cause of over 16,000 deaths annually.
According to the FDA, one should never take more than the recommended amount of non-steriodal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), nor take two NSAIDs at the same time with the same active ingredients.
The FDA even demanded a more accurate labeling of these drugs, in terms of their possible side-effects, like digestive ulcers, strokes,, bleeding, heart attacks, atrial fibrillation, kidney damage, and delayed healing of fractures and soft tissue injuries.
Due to such possible consequences, an increasing number of people is turning to natural alternatives for pain relief. Since ancient times, people have used turmeric as a natural way to soothe pain.
Studies have confirmed its anti-inflammatory effects, and have even found that it is more effective than ibuprofen in the case of osteoarthritis and in the prevention of inflammation.
It is safe, all-natural, affordable, and powerful anti-inflammatory that modifies immune system responses, and offers a myriad of health benefits.
Turmeric effectively treats liver issues, stomach pain, diarrhea, arthritis, heartburn, gallbladder disorders and more.
Its active ingredient, curcumin, is a powerful antioxidant that treats inflammation in the body and relieves pain. Its strong antioxidant, antiviral, and antifungal properties inhibit the function of inflammatory molecules since it is rich in natural pain-relieving COX-2 inhibitors. Moreover, it is non-toxic to humans, and causes no side-effects, unlike conventional painkillers.
Moreover, curcumin fights inflammation by decreasing histamine levels and stimulating the adrenal glands to produce more cortisone, which is the natural painkiller of the body.
Turmeric is especially effective in the treatment of pain due to rheumatoid arthritis, backache, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, kidney stones, headaches, gout, gallstones, diverticulitis, osteoarthritis, and ulcers.
Therefore, make sure you keep turmeric always at hand, and use its healing properties to alleviate pain in a completely harmless way. Add it to your daily diet to prevent pain, and mix 2 tablespoons with water to prepare a paste that should be applied topically to treat wounds or arthritic joints.
Internally, take 1/2 to 1.5 teaspoons of dried root powder daily.
If you decide to take supplements, make sure they also contain black pepper, which improves its bioavailability in the body. Take 250 mg daily, or 400-600 mg up to 3 times per day to treat extreme conditions.
