Do you suffer from pain, stiffness, and loss of function in the joints caused by osteoarthritis? Are you concerned about the effects of pain-killing medication? Perhaps you are looking for a natural remedy as an alternative to anti-inflammatory drugs for joint pain. Curcumin, derived from turmeric has been shown to be an effective anti-inflammatory alternative for joint pain. And, unlike some medications there are no known curcumin side-effects.
Osteoarthritis is one of the leading causes of pain in our ageing population. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics 2014-15 National Heath Survey, it effects 1 in every 11 Australians. And, 2 of every 3 people who have the condition are female. It’s also the predominant condition leading to knee and hip replacements in Australia. But, how to manage the constant pain?
Unless you’ve had joint pain, you just can’t know how it can impact on quality of life. A person’s ability to be independent, their social life, relationships and emotional well being can all be compromised. And, it’s generally managed using paracetamol, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), like ibuprofen, and opioid analgesics. However, they cannot be used long term because their effectiveness reduces over time and they can cause serious gut and cardiovascular problems.
Curcumin, derived from turmeric, has been shown to be as effective as Ibuprofen. If the side effects of pharmaceutical anti-inflammatory drugs are causing you concern, there is a natural alternative for the treatment of joint pain.
