I had chronic headaches and since a few years ago, I became seriously ill. For several years, I lived with headaches, forcing me to take ibuprofen several times a day, even though ibuprofen didn’t give any effect.
Until a few months ago, I did not know the side effects given by ibuprofen. In the end, I known that ibuprofen can elicit a variety of side effects to our health, even a review mentions that ibuprofen has become a kind of poison for some patients with heart disease. This drug is suspected of encouraging the deaths of several thousand people for about a decade.
I switched to turmeric which has long been known to have positive effects to combat inflammation and pain. Turmeric is a spice that does not carry serious side effects. Its polyphenols content has hundreds of health benefits.
A clinical trial published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine suggests turmeric instead of ibuprofen in dealing with osteoarthritis. The clinical trial was conducted on 109 patients with knee osteoarthritis were divided into two groups. One group was given 800 mg ibuprofen while the other group was given 2000 mg of turmeric every day for six weeks.
After six weeks, the group receiving turmeric claimed that they got a lot of positive developments, much more compared to what gained by the ibuprofen group.
Turmeric is a spice that is much recommended. This herb is very safe and easy to obtain. Try as much as possible to avoid the use of chemical drugs and switch to spices if possible.
