EASE Arthritis Pain with Potent “Kitchen Cures”
If you had your way, you’d forget your arthritis even existed.
You’d go ahead and live your life on your own terms.
But arthritis won’t let that happen. Instead, it insists on reminding you of its painful presence all day long.
Opening a jar, grasping a knitting needle, or tying a shoe can all lead to agony. And getting down on the floor to play with the grandkids? Forget about it. Your stiff knees nixed that pleasure YEARS ago.
Sadly, there’s no cure for arthritis. And most mainstream options are risky or even downright DANGEROUS.
Like over-the-counter NSAIDs, which can lead to internal bleeding or liver failure. Or heavy-duty prescription pain pills that can cause addiction.
But there are other NATURAL options. In fact, some of these ache-erasing solutions could already be in your kitchen RIGHT NOW.
We typically use spices to enhance the flavors in our food. But it turns out a number of them can go a long way toward enhancing your quality of life instead.
Research reveals that some spices contain anti-inflammatory properties that are especially useful for tackling arthritis symptoms. And in fact, some of them may be in the foods you’re including in your Thanksgiving feast today.
- Ginger gets to the heart of arthritis by combatting inflammation at the cellular level. Studies show that ginger reduces pain and stiffness in knee osteoarthritis patients by 40 percent.
With Christmas right around the corner, there’s no shortage of ginger-laced goodies. But keep in mind, gingerbread houses, lattes, and cookies won’t help you with your arthritis pain.
To get the full benefits, you’ve got to get it from the real thing. Ginger teas and supplements are available. Or, even better, grab some fresh ginger root to brew your own tea or to flavor a homemade stir-fry.
- Cinnamon is another seasonal spice that can work wonders for arthritis pain. Studies show that it’s a natural anti-inflammatory that can help reduce swelling.
- Cayenne pepper and garlic also contain potent anti-inflammatory compounds. Plus, cayenne includes an ingredient called capsaicin, a natural pain reliver. Capsaicin helps to reduce substance P., the chemical that carries pain signals to the brain.
But no discussion of anti-inflammatories would be complete without mentioning the mother of them all: turmeric.
- Turmeric is the yellow spice often associated with Indian food. It contains a compound called curcumin, one of the most powerful, well-studied, natural anti-inflammatories.
Curcumin BLOCKS the source of inflammation in your body, resulting in reduced pain and swelling. Studies show that supplementing with turmeric produces long-term improvements in people with knee osteoarthritis.
To get the most benefit from turmeric, you should take it with black pepper because it helps the body absorb it better. Plus, black pepper has its own anti-inflammatory benefits, making it a potent two-for-one.
The next time your arthritis tries to boss you around, head for the spice rack and show it who is ACTUALLY in charge.
And please allow me a moment to wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving today!
