Try Spice Therapy to Ease Osteoarthritis Pain

Wellness Tip: Look to your spice rack for relief from osteoarthritis pain. They block the release of the neurotransmitter Substance P, which inflames joints and transmits pain impulses.

Sprinkle cayenne into food dishes or apply it to painful areas with a capsaicin cream containing cayenne extract.

Cook with fresh ginger root or take a ginger supplement— up to 2 grams per day in divided doses. Turmeric contains the compound curcumin. Spice up dishes with turmeric or take a supplement (300 mg. / up to 3 times per day).

CAUTION: Consult with your doctor before use if you take blood-thinners.
