Relieving Joint Pain Naturally

Posted by maskville @freshair, Dec 30, 2018

Because our discussions are fairly wide-ranging in this area, I have posted this new discussion with a recipe for "Golden Milk", which uses turmeric as it's main agent. Turmeric is best known as a root that is ground into a yellow powder, one of the main ingredients in curry. (Turmeric root is often available at larger grocery stores in raw root form.) Turmeric is a known anti-inflammatory, and is considered by many as a lubricant for the joints. According to the book "Food as Medicine" raw turmeric should be cooked for at least 5 minutes in water or oil before using. Batches of the cooked solution can be stored in the refrigerator for as long as one month, and taken out for in recipes such as Golden Milk. I grate turmeric root and leave it raw in a refrigerator glass jar to keep from cooking it twice, but it may not last as long. Golden Milk is said to be beneficial for the joints, to relieve pain, and helps to break up calcium deposits that cause stiffness.

Golden Milk Recipe

1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 cup water
8 ounces milk or 'almond milk'
1 tablespoon edible cold-pressed almond oil
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons honey

Boil turmeric (shredded or grated) in water for about 8 minutes. Bring all ingredients to a boil except the honey. Remove from heat and add honey. Sip or drink as the temperature becomes comfortable.

Hey everyone. Mamacita here from Adults on the Autism Spectrum. You guys are amazing. The best I can do is buy the oils, get the anti-inflammatory capsules, and take them. I can't bring myself to make a tea of something that looks as nasty as Turmeric. I will force myself to drink peppermint tea. But I'm going to have to stir up my courage to tackle my sensory issues long enough to choke down Turmeric tea. You all are so brave. I promise I will give it a try soon. Thank you for trying to help us all here who have joint issues. Natural is better, to my way of thinking, if it is at all possible. Less side effects. And usually way cheaper than Big Pharma. Hope you all have a painless weekend and enjoy yourselves! Talk to you soon!

@mamacita “golden milk” is pretty tasty if you put just a tiny amount of honey in it. You may be surprised if you do give it a try.

@mamacita I love ginger, and like turmeric so it does not taste bad to me at all. When I do make it I try to not use very much honey at all, I do my best to keep sweeteners and carbs down (not always successful though).
