Why I Am Using Turmeric And Ginger Teas

*This post contains affiliate links.

After my diagnosis of arthritis, I started looking for ways to reduce inflammation without having to take meds. And yes, I'm finding out what my dietary triggers are - too much sugar, too much dairy, too much bread, and too much processed food.

I had heard that turmeric and ginger were also great to help reduce inflammation. I love tea. So instead of taking a supplement, I decided to try tea instead.

Let me tell you, it's awesome! I noticed a significant difference in my joints (especially my hands). So I've been drinking
turmeric and ginger tea daily.

These are my two favorites.

I've been putting both bags into one cup, and I drink it first thing in the morning (mainly so I won't forget). My favorite way to drink it is iced. After it steeps, I pour it over ice. But lately, I've just been drinking it hot since I'm short on time. It's good both ways.

And for me, it makes a big difference. If you are dealing with inflammation, I encourage you to give it a try. If you aren't a tea drinker, they also make various supplements. A simple google search will find you lots of options.

Or if you are an amazon shopper, you can check this out for turmeric and this for ginger.

I noticed a difference within a few days. I mean it's not a miracle cure. Yes I still have inflammation, and no I can't eat an entire pizza and think that turmeric and ginger will keep the inflammation at bay. But, from my personal experience, I can tell you that it's like night and day for me.

So it's definitely worth it for me. What about you? Do you use or know of any natural ways to help fight inflammation? If so, drop me a line in the comments or reach out to me on social media!

Writing is one of my passions, and I'm stepping out there on faith to follow my dream. If you like this blog or this post, please take a moment to share it with friends.

  1. I drink the numeric tea from Republic of Tea and I love it!

  2. I was diagnosed with arthritis in my knees last year and Chiroflex by Total Tea made a HUGE difference. I feel like it's what got me back to running. It has curcumin in it which is also a natural anti-inflammatory. And most recently I started adding TLC Seasonings Inflammation Buster seasoning in my morning coffee or my oats. Yummy and also helps with inflammation. I'm with you on looking for those natural ways to beat inflammation rather than living on ibuprofen!

  3. I tried curcumin but didn't find it helped. Best anti-inflammatory for me has always been exercise. I rarely take Osteo Panadol (maybe once a fortnight on average). I can't take NSAIDs due to gastrointestinal issues. I am on DMARDs of course. I take fish oil like crazy!

    Sadly I struggle with herbal teas of any sort. Wish I liked them, because decaffinated coffee is horrible! 😝

    Pain, luckily in some respects, has not been my worst problem. Fatique and brain fog shocking. I am losing manual dexterity, but even so, hand pain in minimal.

Running My Life

Wow, has it really been 2 years since my last post? I suppose that I allowed life to get in the way. For any faithful blog readers, I apologize. Although, I'm not sure how many people actually read blogs anymore. I think most people use other social media platforms.  (By the way, drop by and say hi on Insta. )  But for some reason, each year when I pay for my google domain, I can't seem to let it go. As silly as it sounds, this little space is mine. And lately I've been struggling with ownership and acceptance. And my domain renewal was a not so gentle reminder that I have a voice .  Seriously, you'd think by 48 that I'd have this figured out - nope - apparently not. However, I am wise enough to know that we have a choice to allow situations to harms us or make us stronger. I'm choosing to let this mid-life quandary make me stronger. And because of this, I'm setting goals, taking charge, and reexamining priorities.  Movin' on... 

Self Care Is Not Selfish It's Necessary

It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. And I'll say it just one more time in case you didn't hear me. It's not selfish to take care of yourself. I have found through experience that when I'm not taking care of myself, not only do I suffer but my family suffers. So ditch the mom guilt and take the time that you need! I have a tendency to keep pushing my needs aside until I reach a breaking point. We've had a very busy fun summer so far. However, I've struggled to get some quality ' me ' time to decompress. I'll spare you the meltdown that ensued. But the reality check that followed prompted me to take action.

When The Planner In You Must Be Flexible

In case you haven’t figured this out by now, I’m a planner. I know - shocker right?!? :) So although I love substitute teaching, it’s making the planner in me anxious. And it’s been reeking havoc on my workouts. Basically the morning of or maybe the night before, I find out if I’m working. So my day ( that I thought I had planned ) can be turned upside down in an instant. But, truthfully, isn’t that really the same with everyone?
