    Anybody else try anti-inflammation firecrackers, peanut butter with natural herbs (but not cannabis)? I developed plantar fasciitis so my heels are very sore/inflamed at times.

    My physical therapist recommended several fruits/herbs for their anti-inflammation properties. These include tumeric with black pepper, pineapple, papaya, ginger.

    Tumeric with black pepper has much better absorption rate and tumeric with fat can even bypass the liver and enter the bloodstream via the lymphatic system.
    I could not easily find raw tumeric so got organic powdered which is strong tasting.

    So, I did a tumeric/black pepper/ginger powder peanut butter firecracker which did a crackin' job of hiding the strong taste.
    Note that since amping up a natural herb assault on my plantar fasciitis a few days ago, that has made the most dramatic improvement. It could be coincidence or those natural elements are really doing their magic.
    I'd never had papaya before and it's "different", tastes like a cantaloupe with a bitter chaser. For now, I'm hiding it in my daily steel cut oats breakfast bowl :)

    Most diseases have a heavy inflammation aspect so others may want to try the natural focused approach too.
    Another mix I use is green tea with my fresh basil and diced fresh ginger root.

    What have you tried and liked??

    I make a Turmeric Milk drink once or twice a day. It's quick and easy and delicious.

    To a mug add:

    1 tsp Ground Turmeric or double the amount of fresh if you have it.
    A pinch of Black Pepper.
    1Tbsp peeled chopped fresh Ginger.
    1 tsp Ground Cinnamon.

    Fill mug three quarters full with boiled water
    Top up with heavy cream and sweeten with sweetener of choice.


    Not only is this highly anti inflammatory but it makes a wonderful night cap to help ease you to sleep. I like to start and end my day with Turmeric Milk.

    I'm just starting to incorporate turmeric milk into my routine, I'm eager to hear what others have found from it. Even if I don't notice anything it'll still be a delicious fatty beverage at night :D

    @MinnBobber check out liposomal curcumin... curcumin, lecithin and an ultra sonic cleaning devise is used to encapsulate the curcumin and allow consumption that resists digestion better... I use vitamin C this way all winter and use sunflower lecithin, No Soy... in fact, stay far away from soy

    I've been taking some tumeric caps that my doctor had suggested, you can get it off Amazon. It's kinda spendy if you take two soft gels it will last a couple months. She said her Natropath suggested it. It's from EuroMedica and it's called CuraPro. Each gel cap has 750mg tumeric. I started taking these last spring. Be careful because the second gel cap in the beginning will give you a little bit of loose stools. :oSo start taking the one cap and gradually start taking two.:2c:

    The tumeric milk sounds awesome.

    IIRC I heard about turmeric and black pepper having great anti-inflammatory properties I decided to put black pepper and turmeric in some cannabis pain cream that I was making.

    Unless you only wear black clothes, I recommend against adding turmeric to topicals.

    With a capsule filling device you can buy Turmeric from the grocery store to fill the caps.

    My hands stain yellow for days when I chop this stuff, and I'm pretty careful to minimize contact. If I put it in my topicals I imagine I could pass for a Simpsons character :lol:
