Default Turmeric Puts Drugs for Knee Osteoarthritis to Shame!

Turmeric puts drugs (NSAIDS) to shame, read the 2 page article here...http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/tur...s-shame?page=1

Quote:
Millions take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) daily for arthritis and related inflammatory conditions, but are completely unaware that far safer, and at least as effective, natural alternatives already exist -- and are as easily accessible and inexpensive as the spices found in your kitchen cupboard.

Human research on the health benefits of turmeric is sparse, mainly due to the lack of capital available to fund expensive clinical trials. Despite many decades of investigation as a lead drug compound, and the availability of thousands of preclinical studies indicating turmeric's therapeutic value, few yet realize that this common kitchen spice may provide a suitable drug alternative for common health conditions.



The latest human study to clinically confirm turmeric's medicinal value was published in the Indonesian Journal of Internal Medicine in April, 2012 and found the curcuminoid extract of turmeric was able to reduce inflammation in patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis.

Turmeric has helped many of my patients!

It is believed to have a similar effect on the body as anti-inflammatory drugs but because it works under the same system but doesn't go down a pathway that harms your body!

It is commonly available as "Curcumin" which is an activated form that has a greater effect - meaning you don't have to drown yourself in turmeric powder! :P

But the fact is, a lot of people can't afford these supplements, so using/ingesting the Turmeric raw, or the ground spice is the next best thing. I take a spoonful of Turmeric in the mornings.

Curcumin is the big thing in the world of natural medicine in the UK right now - and more and more so in the world of allopathic medicine too.

It appears to be of appreciable benefit to a myriad of conditions.

Turmeric spice certainly has value as a preventative and as a general health tonic, as a medicine? I think you'd need curcumin supplements for that. They're certainly not cheap, but if they work for 'you' .... As a bonus they lack the side effects of their pharmaceutical equivalents, so all the better.

There have been two patent applications for turmeric, that I know of. Both rejected, mainly due to the intervention of India.

Given the potential profits that could be made I've no doubt there will be others.

Good luck enforcing it even if they did get it granted. What a ridiculous concept.
