An Experience Using Curcumin For Psoriatic Arthritis
Firstly, let me say I am not associated in any way, shape, or form with any herbal (or any other) medication company.
I have, over the many, many years of suffering from this awful illness, and tried many things (wisely and otherwise) to help. I posted a while back a list of my then-current meds, so I won't bore you again with them.
Stumbling across curcumin
Recently, I researched curcumin, a widely available extract from turmeric. This extract seems to keep coming up in various anti-inflammatory articles and I found myself wanting to give it a try.
I purchased some curcumin pills. For the first month, I found no difference in inflammation or pain. I decided to keep going for a while. A few articles had advised that it takes time to get established in your system.
What are the benefits?
I am in my 4th month of taking curcumin pills now. I have managed to cut down my intake of 150 mg per day of Sodium Dicloenac to zero. I have also stopped swallowing so many tramadols and paracetamol to ease the pain caused by inflammation.
Now I am not saying this is a miracle cure, this is basically what I have found over the last few months, so like everything associated with this godforsaken illness, it's still in its early days.
Just thought I would share it so anyone else considering it can see what it is doing for me at present. Keep smiling,
