Turmeric & Ginger help with RA!

Anu Community Member July 29, 2011
  • Turmeric has long been used in Aurveda (the traditional Indian system of medicen) for its antiseptic & healing properties. We in India use turmeric extensively in our cooking. I thought I would share with you the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric (if you don't already know). You can simply have a cup of warm milk with a spoon of turmeric added to it everyday - it helps! But, I personally have noticed that if I drink just milk everyday my pain tends to increase, so I just dilute the milk with water, add the turmeric and drink, I really do find a difference in my pain levels!

     

    Ginger also has anti-inflammatory properties, again, it is extensively used in every day Indian cooking. You can just crush a piece of ginger and boil it with your tea and drink - it helps a lot!

      Hi V,

       

      You are welcome! I have use both, I use the milk & turmeric more because I don't really like tea! But both are effective! Here in India we get ginger in many preparations - dried & salted, soked in sugar etc. Because ginger helps in digestion also, we regularly use it. So, I take ginger in those forms. But, the thing with ginger is - too...

But, the thing with ginger is - too much of it will build up the heat in your body, so it is a good idea to balance it with milk or curd :)
