I have read about turmeric and have developed arthritis in my hands and my knee joint. I have two friends who take turmeric regularly and swear by it. They are like I am—totally avoid medicines from Big Pharma if possible. They say it is a blessing. I’m not sure what way is best—pills or powder mixed with water. I read the entry of turmeric with synthroid, but what about a diabetic taking it to help with joint pain? I have taken glucosamine, and that helps a little bit, but people who take turmeric say it basically does away with the pain. I know it’s not a cure, but if it helps the pain, I would like to try it. I read where turmeric has to have pepper with it. I know there are quacks and faux products, but the good ones are natural, herbal and have been used for years for joint pain and other problems. I think natural is best. Not paying Big Pharma to hawk a medicine that costs a fortune.
Thanks for any help.
