Re: Turmeric Is a Very Good Anti-inflammatory
You are correct. There are many other things besides NSAIDS to use that will help. Why I chose to go the herbal route is the problems my father had over the years with rheumatoid arthritis. From my first memories of him to his death he was taking some type of arthritis prescription medecine. He traveled the route many old sufferers must be entirely too familiar with. He went from one NSAID to another as his body got to used to the one he was taking at the time. He had bleeding ulcers several times in his life. Different joints throughout his body deteriorated more and more over the years of his life. I grew up on a farm and as my brother and sisters and I got old enough to do more of the work, he had to drop back and do as light a work as he could. He never gave up, through all of his suffering, but continued to work at what he could do.
In my opinion, the medical profession has a very sorry record, when it comes to arthritis. None of the medicines that are out are a cure for the disease. There is little or no knowledge about what causes arthritis. Doctors, who specialized in arthritis treatments, work through an entire career and do not cure a single person. The only sure thing is that the medicines used for treating arthritis get more expensive every year.
