Arthritis: Turmeric and Bromelain Treatment for Pain

By    |   Monday, 21 Sep 2015 05:09 PM

For those suffering from arthritis, it can be difficult to find a joint pain reliever that works, isn’t costly, and comes without possible dangerous side effects. Turmeric and bromelain could be a solution.

Turmeric, a spice known in Indian cuisine, is an antioxidant and scavenges for free radicals, according to David Williams, a chiropractor and alternative medicine researcher. Its anti-inflammatory traits help with arthritis. Digesting it can help the entire body, while applying it to specific body parts can benefit certain joints.

Curcumin is the ingredient of turmeric that causes the powder to be a yellow-orange color, and it also gives it the distinct smell. When treating acute inflammation, alcohol extracts of this ingredient have shown conclusions that it is just as good as cortisone, according to Williams.

He suggested making a paste by mixing two tablespoons of turmeric powder with one tablespoon of DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide) solution or lime juice. The rub may then be applied and held to areas with cheesecloth or plastic food wrap.

Bromelain is a digestive aid. It is an enzyme from pineapple juice and its stem, according to Livestrong.

Studies show that it fights inflammation, Williams reported. He suggested 250 milligrams twice a day between meals may help with rheumatoid arthritis.

Turmeric and bromelain are commonly taken together to increase pain relief. The National Center for Biotechnology Information published a study demonstrating their effectiveness in cases of acute and chronic osteoarthritis.

Neither of these supplements should be taken while a woman is pregnant or breast-feeding, according to WebMD. Side effects are typically mild, but patients should consult a doctor prior to taking turmeric and/or bromelain because they could interact with other medications.

People allergic to pineapple, latex, wheat, celery, papain, carrot, fennel, or cypress or grass pollen should not take bromelain. It should also be stopped two weeks before surgery because it could increase the chances of bleeding, WebMD reported.

Pet Remedy Charts also noted these may be effective in treating dogs and cats with degenerative joint pain.
