Ibuprofen is known to handle any kind of pain instantly but it will not solve the long-term side effects inside the body.
By consuming too much of this medication, you could experience certain side effects like hypertension (high blood pressure), erectile dysfunction, diarrhea/nausea, gastrointestinal bleeding, increased risk of heart attack, possible kidney cancer formation and others.
Luckily, Mother Nature was graceful enough to supply us with a natural solution – Turmeric.
While ibuprofen NSAIDs inhibit Cyclooxygenase 2 2 enzyme or COX , it may cause further inflammation. On the hand, turmeric acts very mildly and it brings results.
Turmeric is packed with an extremely strong compound, called curcumin, which acts like a true miracle for your health. Turmeric tea falls into the healthiest, most ancient and most effective natural treatments for eliminating pain and inflammation.
If you’re breast feeding or pregnant, turmeric tea is not recommended.
What turmeric does best is, it fixes the aching joints and muscles and relaxes the body at exactly the same time.
Here is the best recipe to prepare your own turmeric tea at home. You can add other ingredients, like ginger, to foster the effects.
- 4 cups of water
- 2 tbs grated fresh turmeric root, or 1 heaped teaspoon of ground turmeric
- Fresh lemon/honey to taste
Boil some water on the stove and once it starts bubbling throw in the turmeric.
In case you are using fresh grated turmeric, boil for 15 – 20 minutes. Sift tea properly, spice it up with honey to your flavor and then add the lemon.
