People usually reach for ibuprofen-based painkillers whenever they feel a headache or experience pain in the back and other parts of the body. Ibuprofen does work, but only in the short-term – it is unable to resolve the underlying problem for your pain. Excessive consumption of these painkillers can also cause adverse side-effects such as diarrhea, nausea, high blood pressure, erectile dysfunction and kidney cancer. This is why it’s time to stop consuming ibuprofen and NSAIDs(Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) that may be the main reason for inflammation in the body. Luckily, there is a natural way to stop the pain.

Turmeric is a natural spice that has powerful anti-inflammatory properties thanks to its active ingredient curcumin. Drinking turmeric tea every day will surely stop the inflammation and pain in your body. The spice can relax your body and heal your painful joints and can be safely consumed by everyone, although it’s not recommended for pregnant and breastfeeding women. Here’s how to prepare a pot of healthy turmeric tea:


4 cups of water

1 teaspoon of powdered turmeric

Lemon or honey to taste


Pour the water in a pot and bring it to a boil, then add the turmeric and boil for another 15-20 minutes. Strain the tea in the end and leave it to cool down before adding the lemon and honey. Drink a cup of the tea every day and you will get rid of the pain.
