Among turmeric's benefits: easing Fibromyalgia pain
Thursday 1 September 2011
If you have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, then you know that along with FM there is quite a bit of pain, some of which is muscle pain, tenderness, and fatigue. Patients are always interested in learning more about something that might help make them feel a little more comfortable.
A couple years ago, people were finding that among Turmeric’s numerous benefits, it can also be used to help ease some of the pain associated with Fibromyalgia. Turmeric is the rhizome of the herb curcuma longa. It is now widely used in Ayurvedic, a medicine for the treatment of pain, stiffness, and discomfort associated with Fibromyalgia. Turmeric is found in spices and is the primary component in curry powders and some mustards. It is now being used in trials for the treatment and prevention of cancers, particularly of the gastrointestinal tract, and for treatment of colitis and Alzheimer and Huntington diseases.
Turmeric acts against pain by inhibiting the actions connected to pain processing in the central nervous system.

Turmeric can be purchased in health food stores such as the Feel Rite stores in western New York and on their website www.feel-rite.com/.
