Turmeric is stated by some to be one of the newly recognized homeopathic or medicinal wonder cures.

I like it in curry. Gives it similar lasting 'soft heat' as properly used yellow mustard powder, if you're into doctoring up your own curry powders.

Excess naproxen an/or aspirin can contribute to bleeding ulcers in the gastro-intestinal tract, similarly to ibuprofen; careful with that stuff. If the cure brings secondary conditions that are worse than the original issue, then there's ground lost.

I chuckle when I listen to/watch all the Rx drug commercials on the television/radio.

i.e., "Warning; Consult with your physician before trying (X,Y, or Z) as it may contribute to suicidal/homicidal ideation, diarrhea, heart attacks, stroke, marital discord, impotence, paralysis, farting, belching, or incarceration." (sorry, a bit of parody therein).

Makes you wonder just how bad the original complaint had to be to cause someone to agree to make themselves susceptible to all the potential (not to mention the unknown or unstated) side-affects..

Did you know that in many countries, the radio and t.v. commercials the U.S. is exposed to for Rx meds are not permitted? Many countries have stopped the Pharmaceutical vampires from broadcasting their outrageously-inflated-price wares, like the parasitic toxic drug dealers they are.

It prevents ice cream from hanging out too long.

It prevents me yelling at the robocaller and convinces me to tell them a story in which the machine loses instead.

I don't have arthritis and I smoke so I could say maybe.

Let's not limit ourselves to anything but possibilities.

I have bought the caps and the spice.

Tumeric doesn't always work for headache, but I take it anyway.

It makes me head feel more focused, but more diffuse. It's like a small sativa high if you ingest enough.

This could be an MAOI effect.

Swigging the spice got my pain away on my belly. Hurts only a little, but when it's gone, you noticed you had it.

I average about an ounce every two weeks and have done so for roughly forty years.

Got arthritis something fierce, took methotrexate for three years but it caused extra cancer tumors in my right lung and upper colon. So I quit. At that point I had to give up the sword, if there was a workable answer I would have used it, I love the sword.

The pot does not actually help the arthritis. I keeps me more inactive and that helps, but it is the inaction of the joints, not a direct effect of the marijuana. I use morphine for the cancer discomfort, however, morphine has very little to no effect at all on my arthritis pain so it is not the answer either. Methotrexate and similar immune system inhibitors are the functional answer, but only for those it does not create cancer tumors in. I personally know folks that get along well with adalimumab, etanercept, certolizumab, and methotrexate and do not get cancer, but I do.

In that vein, marijuana may work for some folks even though it does nothing for me.

Have you ever decarboxylated at 250F for 45 minutes and then cooked that bud into something? Or just made caps?

I made caps with coconut and hash oil. Let's just say they look so cool that it adds to the high.

Yea, the liver changes d9 into d11. BIGGER longer tailed. I taught my parents this the other day.

Relief Factor works well. I have not used it in a while though. I take tumeric almost daily, which is one of the main ingredients. Fish oil, resveratrol are 2 of the other things in it.

I got my mom on olive oil and she says it helps the arthritis. Not sure if that is placebo though. I got her on that for maintaining brain function that it seems to help with.

Coca Cola really aggravated my joints, had to quit that.

I decarb at 250 for twenty minutes, this is done under vacuum, otherwise the solvent leaves a residue I am not comfortable with. The oil is great for cooking, no plant taste or odor. Mixed with glycerin it makes a great under the tongue spray. And of course vaporizing for the intense instant high.
Patience and skill are required to put oil into caps, I end up with a big mess when I try.
