Where to begin? After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (an auto-immune and inflammatory disease), I tried numerous medications and treatments at my doctors’ instruction. In early 2018 I decided to research more natural methods to heal my body. One of the things I stumbled upon was Turmeric.
Turmeric as an anti-inflammatory
The anti-inflammatory power of turmeric comes from one specific compound called curcumin. Turmeric slows the body’s production of inflammatory signaling properties. This helps to bring the body back to normal and decreases inflammation in the system dramatically.
Believe it or not, ALL of our bodies have some level of inflammation in them. Reducing inflammation in our bodies should be a top priority. Inflammation affects cognitive function, energy levels and overall health. Reducing inflammation can also ease pain and discomfort from joint pain.
Curcumin boosts brain activity
The neurons in the brain are capable of increasing in number and forming new connections. Curcumin can help eliminate or reverse brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s by clearing plaques in the brain.
It is also beneficial in treating depression and anxiety, resulting in a more balanced mood. Curcumin can boost serotonin and has been shown to lead to improvements similar to Prozac.
My personal experience
I began adding turmeric to my daily routine in February of 2018. Since then I have had more clear cognitive function at work. The joint pain in my hip has also disappeared. I have been able to discontinue the use of depression and pain medications. I am not a doctor, but can certainly testify what this natural “wonder herb” has done for my health and well-being. My personal favorite is posted below!
