Everyone has sometimes taken medication based on Ibuprofen, such as Nurofen, Advil & Nuprin, or Motrin, to relieve a headache, backache, or other type of pain.
But, did you know that Ibuprofen really decreases any pain type, but only temporarily and without treating the root cause of the problem?
This drug also triggers a lot of side effects, including nausea, diarrhea, erectile dysfunction, hypertension, gastrointestinal bleeding, greater risk of kidney cancer, heart attack, and so on.
Fortunately, here is a remedy from our Mother Nature, known as turmeric, for treating all these problems.
Unlike ibuprofen and other NSAIDs that hinder the COX – 2 enzyme, which contributed to further inflammation, turmeric is a all-natural ingredient that works very mildly and effectively.
Its active compound is known as curcumin, which offers fantastic health benefits. Moreover, turmeric tea is actually among the most ancient, powerful, and healthiest natural remedies for reducing inflammation and pain.
But, it shouldn’t be taken by breastfeeding and pregnant women.
This natural ingredient heals the aching muscles and joints, thus relaxing the entire body.
Here is a turmeric tea recipe that includes other extraordinary ingredients:
- 2 tbsp. of freshly grated turmeric root or a heaped tsp. of ground turmeric
- 4 cups of water
- Ginger (if desired)
- Lemon and honey to taste
Start by boiling the water, and add the turmeric once it starts bubbling. It should be boiled for about 15-20 minutes in case you use freshly grated turmeric.
Finally, it should be strained, and the lemon and honey should be added, as well.
