When I started complaining of various aches and pains, my mother suggested that I meet with a nutritionist. I wasn’t sure how changing my diet was going to combat pain in my shoulders, back and hips but I was willing to try anything. The nutritionist has taught me how to regulate portions and eat healthy. This improvement of my diet has helped me to lose weight, avoid digestive issues and build a stronger body. I have more energy and my skin has cleared up. The nutritionist introduced me to a variety of superfoods, including turmeric. In my opinion, turmeric is the most effective nutritional supplement available. It provides all sorts of medicinal benefits. I am convinced turmeric is the reason I no longer suffer from aching joints and carpal tunnel syndrome. Turmeric is a spice that has been used in India for thousands of years. The main ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, which is a strong antioxidant and offers power anti-inflammatory properties. To get the most out of it and experience the full effects, I take a capsule of turmeric every morning. Because I no longer deal with debilitating pain, I’ve been able to increase the intensity of my workouts. At one time, it was impossible to lift weights, run, or even support my own body weight in a plank position. Just getting out of bed in the morning was agony. I still check in with the nutritionist regularly. I have made my diet a priority and by including an abundance of vitamins and minerals, I hope to protect and sustain my health.
