The Benefits Of Turmeric For Back Inflammation And Pain

The Benefits Of Turmeric For Back Inflammation And Pain...
I am such a huge fan of Turmeric. I first started out taking Tumeric for back inflammation and pain.

You see, sitting at your desk all day can cause so many issues!. According to a study published by the Mayo Clinic, back pain is the third most common cause of doctor visits in the United States. Many people like myself who struggle back pain, also wonder how the heck did this happen. As I did not lift anything, I am not overweight, and I did not twist or turn oddly. But the truth is the back-pain culprit is from sitting 8 or more hours, which I do for work!

While I do try to stay active, all of that sitting has done tons of damage to my lower back, and it has even caused tech neck!

So, What Is A Person To Do?

Examining Your Back Pain
First, you want to determine the problem. If X-rays are necessary, I suggest going to a Chiropractor first as they can run X-rays in their office. With the cost being about 80% cheaper than if you went to an orthopedic. Or even your PCP, (primary care physician) who more than likely would request the X-rays to be taken at a hospital, which can be ever so costly, even with insurance.

If the results show that it is something that is not severe, that would NOT need surgery or treatment from an orthopedic. You could proceed with the recommended treatment from the Chiropractor. Which could be E-stim Therapy and taking an NSAID (a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) and or Turmeric as my Chiropractor prescribed. Either way, you do need to consult with your PCP as I am not a medical professional. I am only speaking from my successes.

Ways To Treat Your Back Pain Without Prescription Medication
I am not a fan of pain pills, steroids, or any pharmaceutical drugs for that matter. And this is the solution from most orthopedics and PCPs; let’s put a band-aid on it with a drug that can cause you to gain weight or worse yet, something that can be addictive. Bottom line, I DO NOT WANT A BAND-AID, I want a safer solution. Something that is not harmful that can help relieve inflammation and Turmeric can do just that.

Turmeric For Pain Relief

You may be familiar with Turmeric as a spice as it is common in Indian and Thai food. But, never knew what else it could be used for.  Curcumin, an active compound that is found in Turmeric, is where all the magic is as it is an excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, that can promote healing. Although it only takes up 3% of the plant, companies will extract this and concentrate the compound into a nutritional supplement.

Many studies have shown that Turmeric has tremendous anti-inflammatory powers equal in some cases to that of prescription and over-the-counter medications, like NSAID (a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug). And I am here to testify to this, which is why I highly recommend adding turmeric supplements to your diet regularly.

Working Turmeric Into Your Diet
Turmeric is found in a variety of forms, from a fresh root at Whole Foods and as a dried, powdered form in most upscale grocery stores. However, this can be expensive and who has time to grind a root? Which is why I prefer taking a quality supplement like the Ultra Turmeric Complex from Detoxification Works. I am a major fan of their products like their multi-vitamin and multi-mineral blend in easy-to-take capsules as well as their Cherry & Beet Wellness supplement. Which is why I decided to try their turmeric for pain relief.

A review on the many benefits of turmeric by barbies beauty bits

Detoxification Works Ultra Turmeric Complex is a unique combination of organic turmeric powder with synergistic extracts, herbs, and nutrients.

In addition to High-potency organic turmeric extract (95% curcumin - the active ingredient), this supplement also includes:
  • Ginger root extract (5% gingerols)
  • Cayenne extract (100au capsaicin)
  • Piperine (black pepper) extract
  • Zinc citrate
  • Vitamin B6
Piperine: The piperine has been included to potentiate the absorption and effect of the other herbal actives - a well-known herbalists' combination.

The Benefits Of Ginger: In addition to helping relieve pain, ginger can help to protect the lining of the stomach. So, unlike some of the side effects associated with high dose use of aspirin and NSAIDs, like getting an upset stomach or possible damage due to long-time use. You do not have to worry about that when using an herbal supplement, like the one from Detoxification Works. At least from my personal experience.

Other Benefits Of Turmeric
Well, I couldn't end without telling you how great Turmeric is for the skin!

That's right, regular intake of Turmeric Curcumin is also great for the skin, due to its super amazing anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties.

Not only can help to heal and prevent dry skin. But it is excellent for anti-aging, by helping to slow down the signs of aging, diminish wrinkles, and improve skin’s elasticity! Wait, it does all of this… YES and more!

How can one supplement have such a powerful impact across such a broad range of health conditions? The magic is in its life-altering anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which is why I highly recommend taking a turmeric supplement, like the one from Detoxification Works.
