It’s amazing what nature has to offer in terms of natural pain relief. Sometimes we need to stop looking towards the drug companies and start to shift our focus towards ancient remedies that have been delivering results for centuries.


One of the most highly regarded natural anti-inflammatories in both Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine is to use curcumin for joint pain. Curcumin is the yellow pigment of turmeric, the most popular spice in Indian cuisine and a major ingredient of curry powders. As we are about to see, there is a lot to be gained from this amazing spice!


Curcumin is most known for its potent anti-inflammatory properties. It inhibits several enzymes involved in the onset of inflammation, including cyclooxygenase-2, or COX-2. By suppressing this enzyme, curcumin reduces production of prostaglandins, compounds that trigger inflammation and cause swelling and pain.


If you can eat hot food, you can add this anti-inflammatory spice into your foods. It is often used to cook vegetable curry, or you can also add some turmeric root to your green celery-and-cucumber juice to alleviate rheumatoid arthritis symptoms.


If you’d like to do this, simply pick up some turmeric root at your supermarket – but here’s a warning! Don’t let any spilled turmeric juice lie around on your bench top for long – or you’ll be scrubbing all weekend!


Other Ways to Use Curcumin for Joint Pain


For an extra anti-inflammatory effect you can also consider taking curcumin as a supplement which you can get from health food stores as capsules containing powder.


Choose a standardized preparation to minimized batch-to-batch differences. The usual dose is 400 to 600mg daily, divided into three doses.


Curcumin in supplement form could be of great benefit if you are looking for a natural alternative to the over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID’s).


One alternative to taking curcumin in supplement form is to make a micro-emulsion by combining a tablespoon of curcumin powder with 1-2 egg yolks and one to two teaspoons of melted coconut oil. Then use a hand blender on high speed to emulsify the powder.


Another option you can use to increase absorption is to add one tablespoon of the curcumin powder into a quart of boiling water. It must be boiling when you add the powder, as it will not work as well if you put it in room temperature water and heat the water and curcumin together.


After boiling it for 10 minutes you will have created a 12% solution and you can drink this once it has cooled down. The curcumin will gradually fall out of the solution over time and in about six hours it will be a 6% solution, so it is best to drink the water within four hours. It does have a woody taste, but this is done more for therapeutic benefits than flavor.


Curcumin is considered safe when taken at the recommended dose, although it may cause mild stomach upset. Avoid curcumin if you are pregnant or breastfeeding and consult your doctor to determine if consuming curcumin is advisable for you.


The problem with NSAID’s is that they wreak havoc on your digestive system. They can cause ulceration, bleeding and intestinal permeability or ‘leaky gut’ in regular users. This goes directly against our mission to heal the cause of Rheumatoid Arthritis using natural RA therapies and the ideal RA diet.


One of the great advantages of using curcumin for joint pain is that, unlike NSAID’s, it has been shown to have no gastrointestinal side effects. In many cases, supplemental curcumin has also been shown to be superior in effectiveness.


For RA sufferers, curcumin has been shown to create a higher percentage of improvement compared to Voltaren (an NSAID drug). In osteoarthritis (OA) sufferers, curcumin was shown to work as good as or even better than Ibuprofen and in another study OA patients taking curcumin for joint pain were able to decrease their usage of their NSAID’s after a few weeks.


All in all, there is magic in this humble Indian root that is worth exploring, along with many of the other strategies describe in the Paddison Program for Rheumatoid Arthritis. Whether you want to try it in some meals, or as concentrated curcumin in a supplement, it is highly likely that your body will thank you. Enjoy! But don’t leave any on your bench tops.
