Joint Pain – Why Turmeric?
Turmeric is one of the safest and most effective anti-inflammatory herbs.
Turmeric, also known as rhizomatous herbaceous, is a perennial plant from the ginger family. It is a native Indian plant which has been used for hundreds of years as flavor, color for food and medicine. It is widely used in India and Southeast Asia.
As a form of medicine it is used as remedy for stomach and liver ailments. Because of its antimicrobial properties it is a good medicine for sores, which make it great for joint knee pain. As juice, it is also used to cure certain skin conditions like eczema, chicken pox allergies and even scabies. The curcumin (an active compound found in the root) acts as anti-inflammatory which your aching knee needs. What more can you ask for from a small root? Well of course, you can ask for more tea, please?!
Healing Benefits to Relieve Joint Pain: Traditional Folklore or Scientific Reality?
Although the scientific community still has to conclude a definitive scientific proof on the medical benefits of turmeric as an aid to relieve joint pain, well known doctors are already recommending the use of turmeric for osteoarthritis and other joint problems. WebMB, an online medical community offering in-depth and credible information on different health conditions, even said that “turmeric worked about as well as ibuprofen for reducing osteoarthritis pain.”
So, let’s get you started working on that turmeric tea!
How to Make a Turmeric Tea

It’s that easy to prepare a turmeric tea! You are now well on your way to having a healthier and pain free knee joints. But wait! There’s more! I know you still have questions about the concoction we just made. To anticipate your questions here are some of the most common questions regarding the intake of the magical turmeric tea.
When Should I Drink Turmeric Tea and How Often Should I Drink it?
A lot of people will ask: how often should you drink turmeric tea? Should you drink it on an empty stomach? Should you drink it in the morning? How about 3 times a day after meals? Should I only drink it when I feel pain on my joints?
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, you can consume 400-600 mg of standard powderized turmeric. It can be taken as either a preventive or curative supplement. This means that you can drink turmeric tea up to three times a day as long as you do not exceed the dosage suggested by UMMC.
Are There Any Side Effects if I Overdose on Turmeric?
There are no known joint pain side effects of excessive turmeric intake. But studies suggest that anything taken excessively is not good for the body. Follow the recommended dosage for maximum results. 3 cups of turmeric tea a day is the maximum number of cups you should drink if you have chronic knee pain. For preventive intake, one cup a day is just about right.
Is this For Real?
If you are sceptic to relieve joint pain with anti-inflammatory benefits of the tea, you are not to be blamed. You might want to read this testimonial though taken from TIME online magazine. This is a narrative article by Dr. Scott Haig who saw how turmeric has changed the life of Jerry, his patient:
“Jerry had two bad hips; the joints didn’t form quite right as he grew up. They degenerated and started to hurt as he entered his 60s. When he first started coming to me, I gave him the usual anti-inflammatory medications we use for arthritis pain. He had no side effects, but he wasn’t helped much either, so he stopped the pills and lived with the pain. Then he found turmeric.”
“Soon enough, there was no pain at all. And his lower back and hands, which ached before, were also now pain-free. So I was curious last year, when at age 73 he came in and told me he was ready for a hip replacement. “It’s just so stiff” is all he would say. He certainly had the limp, the trouble with stairs and the slow rise from a chair that you see in folks with hip arthritis. His X-ray showed bone-on-bone erosion and plenty of spurring; his examination showed the profound loss of motion you would also expect. Everything said “just do a hip replacement” — except for that one cardinal feature: pain.”
Lastly, taking ibuprofen or any other pain killers prescribed by doctors will help you alleviate your knee pain, but can damage the liver in the long run. If you are tired of prescribed painkillers then the way to go is to use natural pain killers found in herbs. You can further manage your knee joint pain by taking a look at the Free Report below.
