Do you suffer with migraines? Well today’s doctor’s prescription could help. It’s tumeric. (audience cheers and applauds) The household spice’s active ingredients is curcumin, and we know it’s a very powerful antioxidant and is known for it’s anti-inflammatory effects. A recent study just came out that found that combining this spice with omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the pain of migraines. So something that you could do at home and avoid some of those really powerful migraine medications. And Dr. Ordon this is something that I’m for trying because, one, it’s very safe. So it’s incredibly safe and it’s also incredibly cheap. So you’re not going to blow a lot of money trying this thing. It’s shown to have some anti-inflammatory effects. I’ll actually use it sometimes after hard workouts. It tends to help me sleep a little bit, so I don’t use it anytime but before night. But that’s just me and I don’t know if that’s right or not. But yeah I think it’s worth a shot. My question is, how did they figure this out? Was somebody cooking and go oh my head hurts but hey, why don’t you just try some tumeric there? It’s amazing but how do they find this out? From a medical standpoint honestly a lot of things we discover are done so accidentally. Not in this case but a lot of times. And I think in this case it does come from ayurvedic medicine in India that this is spice that’s used a lot in the Indian culture. Hundreds of years or thereabouts.
And they have been using it as well for medicinal purposes so I think the whole idea started there. Now they’re actually doing scientific studies to see and this study seems to point that may help. So why not? I would give it a shot.
