Anyone else taking turmeric or related supplements to help reduce inflammation?
I have been taking a turmeric supplement daily for a few weeks now. My doctors had me on NSAIDs for several months and I was tired of taking them continually with the damage they can do to the digestive system. I did not notice any immediate effect with the turmeric, but from what I have read and have been told by my doctors, the effects come after weeks of continuous use.
I am feeling a little better overall these days, but there have been other variables such as herbal supplements, acupuncture, physical therapy, and of course the passage of time. I have stopped taking ibuprofen and naproxen altogether, and only take aspirin maybe 2x a week when I have particularly rough days.
The turmeric is cheap and benign so I will likely keep taking it regardless, but I am curious to see if anyone has success stories with this supplement.
