Turmeric Tea Time

Recently, I have been battling arthritis pain. Because of other complicating factors I cannot take the usual non steroidal anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen or even a Tylenol. So what to do as far as pain management goes? Well I have a great massage therapist that helps tremendously. She introduced me to an amazing oil that helps with nerve damage that I have from an old surgery but it was only giving me minimal relief from the arthritic pain.

So I took to the internet in search of herbal relief. Everything pointed to the same thing..turmeric has natural anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric is found to be beneficial in a number of diseases according the National Institute of Health.

Lemon¬†also has numerous health benefits including anti-inflammatory properties. Other herbs such as cinnamon and ginger share anti-inflammatory properties. My cup of tea is from our friend Ronny McMullen’s get the tea.com¬†Bottoms up… I’ll let you know how it goes. Here is a bountiful lemon tree I saw in California!

    I suffer from arthritis, COPD, and degenerative disc disease. I too started to use natural medicines rather than chemicals. Each day I start with a blended drink of fresh peeled turmeric, ginger, cactus, tart cherry juice, papaya, and pineapple. I also add chili peppers and apple cider vinegar to my foods. On many days I am able to forget that I ever had pain. I find myself walking normally without assistance. If I miss more than one day at a time, I know about it fast. God gave us the best meds !
