GINGER & TURMERIC: A POWERFUL NATURAL PAIN-FIGHTING COMBINATION!
Ginger and turmeric are two of the most extensively studied ingredients in herbal medicine. Interestingly, both have been used for centuries to treat a variety of ailments, ranging from migraines to chronic inflammation and fatigue. Both ginger and turmeric are rhizomes, or root stalks, used around the world, not only as food seasonings but also as traditional herbal medicines. Both have also been used to help to decrease nausea, enhance immune function to help protect against illness and infection but primarily are used to help alleviate different types of pain.
CAN I TAKE TURMERIC AND GINGER TOGETHER?
Ginger and Turmeric’s active ingredients can provide relief to those suffering from a number of painful conditions, from arthritis and gastric discomfort to migraine headaches and post-surgical pain and searches have proved that their active ingredients work synergistically and their combination could be even more effective!
BEFORE YOU TAKE IBUPROFEN, TRY THIS
Ginger has long been used as an herbal remedy to relieve morning sickness, general nausea, and upset stomach, digestion issues, or menstrual pain.
A study of 150 women with equally severe menstrual pain compared the pain-relieving properties of ginger to ibuprofen and a prescription NSAID (a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug) and found them to be equally effective.
Another study found that ginger was just as effective as a common triptan medication used to treat many types of migraine headaches.
Research also suggests that regularly eating ginger can help relieve certain pain that comes with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Turmeric’s active ingredient (Curcumin) has anti-inflammatory action
In clinical studies, Curcumin appears to help improve rheumatoid arthritis, post-operative inflammation, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and stomach ulcers.
Scientists have found evidence that curcumin could actually be just as, if not more, effective than ibuprofen or aspirin.
NSAIDs like ibuprofen, naproxen, etc. are widely used to treat pain and don’t require a prescription. But recent studies suggest that when taken regularly, these medicines can have serious side effects. Apart from being a natural pain reliever, Turmeric and Ginger may have pain-reducing power equal in some cases to that of prescription and over-the-counter medications.
