People seem to be obsessed with painkillers, and they would rather swallow a pill instead of ‘dying’ in pains. But, are these pills that efficient, or is it just us being used to take a pill for everything? Instead of organic snacks or fruits, women carry ibuprofen in their purses. At what point did pills become so essential? Moreover, although they may give you a mild relief, the pain keeps striking back, and you take another pill. And it never ends!
In addition to their inability to diminish pain, painkillers can seriously harm health. Even students take these to relieve minor injuries or toothaches. Plus, every doctor reaches for ibuprofen prescriptions when patients complain about pain of any kind. Latest research has confirmed that ibuprofen harm human health to a terrifying extent.

According to a clinical study that was published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, turmeric is a healthier and a lot more efficient alternative to ibuprofen, and it shows extraordinary results in the treatment of osteoarthritis.
The particular study involved 109 patients diagnosed with osteoarthritis of the knee. Part of the participants received 800mg of ibuprofen, while the others took 2,000mg of turmeric every day for a total of 6 weeks. Their pain was measured during the performance of physical activities like walking, stair climbing or other common activities.
