Does Turmeric Relieve Joint Pain?

I get a lot of flak from the mainstream medical community.

They call people like me “quacks”…

Or “snake oil salesmen”…

Just because I believe people have a right to know there are safe and effective natural solutions for just about every health condition under the sun.

But the more people learn the truth, the more it cuts into Big Pharma’s profits.

They don’t like that too much.

Fresh and Dried Turmeric

So it REALLY burns me up when I see other “alternative health experts” pushing inferior products… just to cash in.

Or telling half-truths to sell their goods.

That’s exactly what’s happening with turmeric.

If you’ve picked up a magazine or logged onto the Internet in the past year, I’m sure you’ve heard of it. Turmeric sales have skyrocketed over the past few years.

Here’s the reason for the hype: Turmeric has an active ingredient called curcumin.

Curcumin is a staple in Indian food. It’s what gives curry its golden yellow color. And research shows it’s effective at knocking out inflammation and easing aching joints.

Don’t get me wrong…

Turmeric is a fantastic healing herb… But there’s one BIG PROBLEM with all the turmeric hype:

You’re not getting the whole story.

With so many fly-by-night new “supplement gurus” cashing in on the turmeric hype, they’ve left out a very important fact.

You see, there’s a MUCH better way to take turmeric. One that skyrockets its potency and effectiveness

Turmeric works by “shutting down” your body’s COX-2 enzyme.

The COX-2 enzyme is your body’s “pain enzyme.” Scientists say it plays a key role in the inflammation.

And while turmeric can definitely help… There’s a way to harness the healing powers of turmeric that will make turmeric work MUCH BETTER for YOU.

You see, the best way to halt that nasty COX-2 inflammation enzyme from keeping you in pain is with turmeric AND…

Turmeric Relieves Pain BETTER With Proteolytic Enzymes

A “secret” pain-relieving enzyme with 70 years of use and over 160 peer-reviewed, verifying studies proving its effectiveness.

I’m talking about proteolytic enzymes.

European doctors have used proteolytic enzymes for over 70 years to treat everything from chronic pain and sports performance to chronic diseases like cancer.

Proteolytic enzymes are so effective because they break down excess fibrin.

Fibrin is your body’s first response to pain and injury. Fibrin is the base material for clots, scabs and scars. In normal amounts, it’s a good thing.

But when fibrin grows out of control because of chronic inflammation, you end up in pain.

A lot of it.

That’s where the proteolytic enzymes come in… They act like a clean-up crew for excess fibrin.

Heal-n-Soothe bottle

Now, for the first time, there’s a brand new way to combine this “miracle” enzyme with turmeric… And provide a double-whammy of relief wherever it hurts.

I use this breakthrough technology in Heal-n-Soothe®. So that you have the most advanced pain relief available. And it’s ALL NATURAL.

But I’ve done more than that in my Heal-n-Soothe® product.

After years of researching the most potent natural pain-relieving remedies on the planet, I came to a realization…

There’s a reason Mother Nature has so many effective pain-relieving weapons in her war chest. They were never meant to be used alone.

Taking just one — like turmeric — will help alleviate pain and inflammation.

But when you COMBINE them, the results are incredible. I’m talking about off-the-charts pain relief.

pineapple sliced

Take bromelain, for example. It’s an enzyme found in pineapple. It’s so powerful that hospitals even use it to relieve post-surgical pain.

A number of studies show it works to treat osteoarthritis pain.

One study looked at patients with degenerative spine or painful joint conditions. Taking bromelain alone cut chronic pain in HALF and acute pain by 60 percent!

And then there’s devil’s claw

It’s one of the most commonly prescribed treatments for pain relief in Europe. In fact, devil’s claw accounts for nearly 75% of all prescriptions for rheumatoid arthritis in Germany.

It also slashes painful symptoms of tendonitis, bursitis… even lower back pain! Devil’s claw has active ingredients called harpagosides.

A study published in the journal Rheumatology compared a Devil’s Claw extract of 60 mg harpagosides a day and 12.5 mg a day of Vioxx for six weeks in 79 patients with severe lower back pain. The results? Devil’s Claw was as effective as Vioxx—without the terrible side effects.

And these are just a few of the potent natural pain relievers found in Heal-n-Soothe®. It also has ginger, boswellia extract and so much more…

I’ve carefully researched each and every ingredient. And studied how they work together to provide the ULTIMATE in pain relief.

You won’t find this unique combination of pain-relieving ingredients in any other product on the market.

These carefully selected natural ingredients are what helped me put an end to years of debilitating pain. My Heal-n-Soothe® has helped tens of thousands of people around the world live pain-free.

    I have been using hns for 3 weeks starting with 9 caps perday. I then started to feel significantly better. Now i take 3 to 6 caps per day and nearly finnished my2 bottle. I now can sleep on my side.. and can drive again. My days are mostly pain free. Managing the pain and capsules is ongoing hopefully i will find the exact dose to keep me painfree. Although i can still feel the problem in my spine. It is no longer debilatating and constantly painful.. thank you..

    1. Ann Selley says:

      I swear by turmeric…. take organic powder in smoothie every morning with black pepper and a gel cap with pepper every afternoon

  3. Jennifer P. Burrell says:

    I am so tired of hurting all the time. I have psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, syntendovitis, among a host of many other things. Basically, I have painful joints, painful and weak muscles, and a painful tendons (which means the tendons is my hands swell to look like boxing and handicaps for about 40 hours from hand swelling to when they start to deflate). I have had these ailments for 20+ years even when most doctors didn’t recognize fibromyalgia was all in my head. As years go by, I just worsen and worsen. The docs won’t prescribe anything for pain because of the epidemic. I can’t live with the pain I have now. So I am willing to try this. I have heard of turmeric but hadn’t tried it and glad I didn’t since tweaks were made to better the product. Thank you for a chance to alleviate some of my pain.

      Hi Jennifer
      Please inform me how to use Tumeric,
      I have severe back burning and also stomach pains, fibromyalgia and osteoporosis.

      1. Alvina Sedwick says:

        I too would like to know how to use and take Tumeric, I have aweful pain from my arthritis

        1. Rodney says:

          Out of all the herbs and natural medicine i have tried for my arthritis the one I always came back to is Heal n Soothe, it really does work, you start on a high dose and over the days ease down till you notice the pain creeping back , so add another capsule and over a few weeks you realise that your pain is so low as to make you wonder why your taking capsules at all..
          I have been using HnS for 4 years now, and my dose to keep arthritis to a negligible level is maybe a couple of capsules twice a week tops, and thats after doing some hefty work for the fingers and joints to take.

  4. Lee Harmon says:

    I am under the Care of a pain management Doctor! Has this information been made available to the medical community?

  5. Yes Lee, this is very common medical knowledge. Turmeric (curcumin) has been used for thousands of years and over literally thousands of studies have been done on it. Proteolytic enzymes have also been used for over 100 years to treat all sorts of conditions and diseases. I highly encourage you to explore our website to learn more about both.

  6. Lissa says:

    I am allergic to medicines that’s why i always prefer home remedies. Lower Back pain is my common problem. I had tries some treatments like massage with gel, hot water bottle, Coconut oil etc. i never heard that turmeric can also be used for back pain too.

  7. Mike Price says:

    As I have read many herbs such as turmeric thin your blood.
    As I am due to have surgery soon, would you recommend stopping supplementation with “Heal n Soothe” until sometime after the operation..

  8. Steven Hefferon says:

    Yes, Anyone taking Heal n Soothe should stop taking it 2 weeks before the operation.



  9. Annette Pellegrino says:

    I take curcumin with boswella for ulcerative colitis. I did not see any stomach conditions listed in your write up. Have you studied the effects of your product on UC?

    1. Steven Hefferon says:

      Annette, Neither Curcumin with Boswellia are an issue for UC but Heal n Soothe also has Systemic Enzymes in the formula so is not suggested that anyone with UC take the Heal n Soothe, as the enzymes them self will irritate the UC…

      Sorry and thanks for asking, safety is always number one priority for us…


      1. Shirley says:

        What is UC?

  10. Jean says:

    The directions say to take Heal N Soothe 30 minutes before a meal but is it okay to take it with a small bite of something in order to get it down if a person has a hard time swallowing pills with just water?

    1. Steven Hefferon says:

      Jean, If you have trouble swallowing or feel the need to take with food, you may take Heal-n-Soothe® with a small amount of any non-proteins like carbohydrates such as rice, a plain cracker or slice of fruit.

      If you need to you can open up the capsule and put the content in applesauce, that works great…

  11. Patricia Blackadar says:

    I want to take turmeric but have a lot of difficulty swallowing pills, so much so that I avoid swallowing pills alltogether, unless the pills are small gelatin capsules. I have arthritis in my knees and a torn meniscus, plus back pain sometimes, and have continual chronic ankle pain. I also struggle most days with IBS. Life would be a so much easier for me if I could get pain relief. Thanks for any, any advice or information you can give me!!!

    I have been a concrete finisher for 32 years with about 2 years to go before retirement. Most of my day is spent fully or partially bent over or on my knees for up to 12 hours at a time scrubbing floors until they’re smooth and hard. Ive been taking Percocets and tramadol for years because of pain. Both shoulders are blown and I have degenerated discs in my neck and lower back. Recently I started taking “heal and soothe” and noticed I felt just a very small amount better first thing in the morning but my pain levels are about the same. I take 4 in the morning and 4 in the evening. Is there anything else you can suggest short of early retirement that can help?

    1. Steve HBI-Staff says:

      Brian, the single most important suggestion I can give you is “educate your self” I know that sounds silly when you are asking for help, but I can not possibly present to you all of your options, that is why we have written several books and we give them away for free:

      Please choose to educate your self before you take any more action…



      PS. Starting with Heal n Soothe was a great first step…

  13. Diane Jacowsky says:

    I just ordered Turmeric from Organixx and was really excited to start taking it. I love their products and take their multi vitamin. Then I just happened to be reading something online that said you should not take it if you’re taking Omeprazole. I take 10 mg A-day otherwise I have horrible Gerd symptoms. My plan was to gradually go off the amount price all hoping not be Turmeric would be healing instead. Any thoughts and/or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much, Diane

  14. nicki j. says:

    Thanks for all the new info on this thread. I appreciate it. I’ve been taking turmeric with black pepper and ground fenugreek seeds in carrot juice for several years now. It works for me, although I still seek to be totally pain-free. But still, “Look, Mom, no pain meds!”, I’m still avoiding OTC and prescrition pain meds! Now I will take the proteolytic enzymes also. Thanks again!
