I personally love Turmeric.   Unable to use NSAID’s to alleviate pain it has been a real life saver. It has helped me with severe menstrual cramps that were unrelieved even with the use of prescribed medications such as Tramadol.  My dear friend Jane has used Turmeric to control her symptoms of Fibromyalgia she takes 1,000 mg daily.   Of course always talk to your doctor before starting any supplement.

I usually either take it in capsule form that I buy from whole foods or get a delicious Turmeric Mylk from The Bee Organics. Below are just a few of the health benefits discussed on the video shared by Dr. Axe.


Anti-inflammatory– joint pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis

Balances blood sugar levels

Anti Microbial properties– face masks used for acne

Detoxification– high in anti-oxidants and supports liver detoxification

Effective in cleaning out arteries– buildup of plaques
