Pain! During renovations, I fell. Thankfully, I did not break anything. But hurts like I did.
Years ago, I would have grabbed the Advil (ibuprofen).
Why not now? Because of the side effects.
The most common side effects from ibuprofen are rash, ringing in the ears, headaches, dizziness, drowsiness, abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, constipation and heartburn.
Lately, in my efforts to reduce generalized inflammation I have been taking Turmeric (curcumin) with Carlsen’s Cod Liver oil *.
I tried a good quality turmeric spice with the oil but it does not give me the same relief.
The only thing that works is the turmeric extract that comes in Adeeva’s Natural Pain Relief **.
* Carlsen’s taste good, it comes in lemon or orange flavour. Dr. Russell Blaylock says the oil stimulates the absorption of the turmeric. I agree! It is more effective.

From their website: Nature’s Relief contains the four most powerful anti-inflammatory herbs ever researched, each of which has been shown in clinical trials to reduce pain and swelling in conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, advanced osteoarthritis, as well as other musculoskeletal inflammatory problems.
That is it for now. I off to rest and get better.
