IBS can be debilitating as it leads to, not only bloating and digestive issues but also migraines, tiredness and high levels of sickness; colds, flu, sore throat. IBS also began to manifested itself as in stiffness in my joints which I associated instantly with arthritis. So in a way I was right; it was inflammation but I had not associated this as a follow on or a ongoing roll on effect of inflammation throughout my body. I didn't realise at the time that what I was actually suffering from was poor gut health, which was mainly due to eating the wrong foods. Now again most people say I'm super healthy and I thought I was too, but what I didn't appreciate was that no matter how healthy I thought I was being, if I was using rubbish products, even those marked as wholesome, I was still putting unwanted pesticides and chemicals into my body. So this past year I have been exploring using high quality products to make my own blends and mixtures to help ease my symptoms.
The turmeric mixture is a the result of this exploration. I ditched the turmeric capsules, mainly because of the plastic holding the powder together- what's the point of putting good turmeric in when you are placing extra stress on your body expecting it to deal with the plastic of the capsule!! I mixed my own blend with lots of spices that help support the immune system and thus reduce inflammation.
I have been taking this regularly now for about 6 months and the difference is life changing. I am able to increase the dosage if my symptoms increase and then just take one dose a day in almond or oat milk before bed as a maintenance dose.
