Turmeric Tablets & Cannabis Oil

Turmeric Tablets & Cannabis Oil

Has anyone tried turmeric tablets or cannabis oil? Heard it's great for fibro.

Bi,
We bought CBD oil in Spain and I must say that it really helps reduce my pain. It is expensive - higher the percentage the better it works but the higher the cost.

I have heard magnesium helps so I have ordered some.

When Lady Gaga announced she had fibro there was a very good article in a paper which mentioned a creme called Celafen, (contains Celadrin). I rub it on in the morning and evening and it seems to helping after only a week.

I think the best thing is to keep trying. I was on so many pain killers that I was having a tough time concentrating. I am trying hard to reduce my medication so would appreciate your suggestions.

Turmeric paste works well but I find the Full Spectrum Hemp CBD oil Supplement works the best for it. I will not be without my oil ever. for my Arthritis I can vape it but for my Fibro I find the oil under the tongue works best or if you can not absorb well in the belly button until it absorbs works as well.

I use a supplement that is the essential oil of circumin (which turmeric comes from) called Curamed. It is extremely potent, absorbs well, and is great at lessening my inflammation. I also use Curamin which also includes boswellia extract for when I'm in flare. I used to take regular turmeric but it wasn't strong enough for me. I tried COD oil, but didn't find it very helpful for me personally. Everyone is different and they have to find what works for them. I.do think that whatever reduces inflammation in the body: diet, oral care, supplements, etc will.reduce the number of flares and overall pain.

Well I don't take any pills at all. As I mentioned earlier I exercised a lot when I first started to have it from a car accident. I had it pretty soon after the car accident and I was test with a special equipment and I had it. I had 22 points and I do. Did not have it before car accident. I hurt my neck in accident had a terrible whiplash and my back was strained. I didn't break any bones in my spine but I broke my sternum. I went to do Aquafit and before that water therapy in a warm pool and Aquafit was in a warm pool. It worked well for me and then I increased the exercise and I started to swim lengths and then I started to lift weights on machines and not too heavy of weights but they helped me. I got stronger. It helped me deal with the FM. So you need to exercise and start off small. Do not overwork yourself. I found the water helpful. I even went for the hot tub after Aquafit. I also got massage I think every week and then went to every other week. Now I don't have massage at all. I used to take a drug right after my injury that would loosen up my tight muscles sometimes I would hear them cluck from my neck to shoulders just like something fell. It was awful, I would feel better though, but the drug was really strong it was Vioxx and later I think they took it off the market because it killed some people. I had a weak dose 25 mg but it was still too strong for me and I knew it so I would break the pill in half or a quarter and it still worked for me. After it relaxed my muscle I was very tired and wanted to sleep. I was to take it daily but never did. I only took it when I had a problem. I am someone that is very sensitive to medication. I could not believe how tight my muscles where around my neck especially and maybe my shoulders. I would really have trouble before a rain. But all the exericse I did helped me. I read something that said you could beat FM by exercising so I really did a lot of it. I often said I thought I would have to practically kill myself from exercising to get rid of FM. I also think it's important to eat properly. I tired some Turmeric pills but they say abortion is the worse problem. Anyway after I took one I had this awful pain in my knee and I had not had that before I think it was from the Tumeric. Not sure and not sure it's good for me. It was funny I had it after the pill. Pills work quickly on me so I think it was from it. It's supposed to help inflammation. I would say do exercise on a regular basis but start slow and make sure you have stretched and are warmed up. The Aquafit really helps, the water helps.

I have found CBD oil helpful with Neuropathy pain in my feet and it helps with anxiety. 500 mg. Is a lot better than 100 mgs Beware of trial offers, I got scammed and was charged $78 twice in one month for 100 mg. CBD oil.
