Tumeric - When it really hurts!

After overcoming major illness early in life, as well as only a few years ago, and re-booting my immune system, foot pain is confusing.  I thought my immune system, including the "structural framework",  was bulletproof. Ahhh, not yet. After a lifetime of unintentional immune system damage,a few short years are baby steps on a longer journey of wellness.

Everybody seems to have a opinion (and ready to share) when they see you limping. Some work, some don't. However, pain seems to motivate you to continue to "fine tune" and discover what works for you.

My most recent "success" is Tumeric. While many have seen on the spice aisle, it's the active ingredient in mustard and many Middle Eastern dishes.

I chewed on the Tumeric root from the produce section (next to ginger). Tastes like a funky carrot and I didn't notice any difference. However, when I opened capsules in water or HPP Tumeric Alive, I have been given the best outcome. Pain is radically reduced even during wet weather and barometer changes. I find taking it with a cracker or toast (like you would with most medications) seems to work better.

I'm continuing doses daily and inflammation is continuing to reduce. Stay Tuned...
