The yellow pigment called curcumin in turmeric is a very effective anti-inflammatory agent. Hence, turmeric is excellent for reducing pain, swelling and inflammation. It can treat both acute and chronic joint pain.

  • Boil 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder in a glass of milk. Add a little raw honey and drink it twice daily for at least a few days.
  • Alternatively, take a curcumin supplement daily after consulting your doctor.

Note: Avoid excessive intake of turmeric as it may interfere with certain medications, such as blood thinners.

  1. After I had my daughter in 1965, I developed bursitis in my right shoulder, it was extremely painful and I ended up at the emergency. I think the dr that examined me was brain dead because I couldn’t figure out what he meant when he told me that it was caused by a high calcium buildup. Did not understand because having just given birth I had thought that the baby would have taken a lot of the calcium when I was carrying her. As it was he did not give me anything for the pain and he told me that it would soon go away. It took a while but finally did go away. I am now in my 70’s and every so often I get a bit of pain not too bad but just a reminder. I still can’t believe there wasn’t anything he could give me. Your opinion Please. Thank you.

    1. A shortage of calcium in the body actually causes the body to pull calcium from the bones. That calcium then ends up being deposited in the body in places it doesn’t belong. Crazy but true.

  2. will turmeric and cucumin help the swelling. it has been said that turmeric is an anti-inflammatory which also helps joint inflammation

  3. I started out w/ a disc protrusion that is pressing towards my spinal cord. After treatments w/ my Chiropractor and 24 traction sessions. I pain from the back got a little better. Then I had an MRI after the Chiropractor’s xray showed the protrusion the MRI confirmed it. So my PC ordered Physical Therapy. The therapist said I had bursitis and stenosis in the hip and down my leg. After 5 treatments pain in the thigh, knee and leg have become unbearable. My back isn’t hurting as much now as the hip,knee, and leg. I stop PT now and am seeking advice from my PC about injections in the areas for pain. What are your thoughts and suggestions.. This has been going on since Jan of this year. Only seems to get worse. Walking, going up steps is really bad, and doing any physical activity is painful!!!

  4. I have bursitis in my hip i ended up getting a cortisone shot for the pair in April. But now pain is coming back. It hurts all the way down my leg sleeping is my worse time. Also taking lyraca for nerve pain. My docters said I’ll probably need another shot.what do you think of this? .
