One of the first and oldest types of alternative medicine and natural healing systems throughout the world is the ayurvedic medicine. Its origins are traced back to India, where it had been developed and established thousands of ages ago. Actually, the core of this medicine is the belief that everything that exists in this universe is interconnected through energy.
This medicine claims that the good health can be achieved when you, including your mind, your body, and your spirit, are in harmony with the universe. Once this harmony gets disrupted, it contributes to poor health and development of some serious illnesses, including cancer, asthma, heart disease, arthritis, and dermatitis.
TURMERIC AND GINGER FOR TREATING RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS AND INFLAMMATION
Ayurvedic practitioners suggest that people who suffer from inflammatory conditions, as well as from some other disorders, should use turmeric and ginger. Even scientific studies have shown that turmeric works better than drugs like phenylbutazone and other NSAID used in treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.
Thanks to the presence of its active ingredient known as curcumin, turmeric has strong antibacterial, antioxidant, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory effects.
Ginger helps when it comes to increasing the mobility of the joints, alleviating pain, reduction of swelling and morning stiffness.
Turmeric and ginger can be also found in powder, and used in nearly anything you cook and prepare.
Here are some ways in which you can use turmeric and ginger to relieve arthritis symptoms:
Technique 1: mix a little bit of ginger and a little bit of turmeric in some water, and boil them for about fifteen to thirty minutes. Then, drink this solution.
Technique 2: take some turmeric and combine it with ginger extract to make a glue-like paste. Apply this paste onto the areas affected by arthritis and sooth the pain in your joints.
Technique 3: combine some ginger and some turmeric powder with rise and fenu greek powder. When you finish with the preparation of the mixture, store it in a container and close it well. Consume a teaspoon of this mixture twice a day.
Technique 4: “Brilliant Milk”- The Ancient Drink That Will Change Your Life
Unfortunately, when consumed alone, curcumin is not well absorbed by the body. This is why you need to make sure that you combine it with black pepper so that you support its absorption.
Note: pregnant and breastfeeding women, as well as women who use medications for treatment of any health condition should not take turmeric supplements without a consultation with their doctor.
