What’s so fascinating about turmeric is that it’s not just effective at dealing with back pain, but it’s AS effective as the typical medications you take for the same problem.
Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) like aspirin, Ibuprofen, and Naproxen are all over-the-counter medications available to help deal with pain and inflammation, and they’re commonly taken for lower back pain. They do help to ease discomfort and reduce swelling.
But turmeric–a natural spice derived from a simple bright yellow root–is just as effective as all of these drugs when it comes to dealing with your lower back pain. You don’t need to head to the pharmacy to pick up a new drug, but you can find turmeric at your local supermarket or grocery store.
Not only will you receive the same pain-relieving benefits, but you won’t experience the stomach and digestive problems that accompany most NSAIDs. Best of all, turmeric is a WHOLE lot cheaper than any drug you can buy at the pharmacy.
How Much Turmeric To Take?
The suggested general dosage for healthy adults is 300 mg of turmeric, taken 3 times per day to help ease pain and inflammation. If you take medications, then the dosage may need to be adjusted.
