Turmeric is a commonly used spice that also has medicinal properties. 


Historically, it has been used in native Indian medicine for healing. Its anti-inflammatory property may be beneficial for rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.

Turmeric is all-pervasive in our lives, to the extent that we put it almost unthinkingly in our curries and fries. But we have all seen our grandparents whip up home remedies with it when we had a bruise or complained of a blocked nose. It is suggested that its medicinal properties extend to providing relief from arthritis pain.

More specifically, it is the compound curcumin in turmeric that comes with a range of beneficial properties. It is anti-inflammatory, pain-inhibiting, and has antioxidant properties. It is also said to prevent cancer and protect the nervous system.


  1. Modulates immune system

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder in which the body’s immune system loses its way and attacks itself. It moderates the activity of immune cells like T cells, B cells and Natural Killer cells, preventing the spread of inflammation. 

  1. Acts as an antioxidant

Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects can help put a roadblock to the progress of arthritis. As an antioxidant, it curbs the action of free radicals that cause damage to internal organs, thereby reducing oxidative stress and pain levels. 

  1. Acts as an anti-inflammatory agent

Curcumin decreases the activity of harmful compounds known as cytokines, as well as certain enzymes, both of which are potentially inflammatory compounds. Curcumin extracts taken in the form of 500 mg capsules twice daily is a recommended alternative treatment for rheumatoid arthritis. For osteoarthritis, it is suggested that about 400—600mg of turmeric capsules a day would be beneficial. 

  1. Controls pain externally

For less serious joint pains, swelling, etc., it is also possible to use turmeric externally. A paste made out of turmeric powder and water can be applied to the affected joint, to ease the pain and inflammation.

As more serious studies are required to provide conclusive evidence, it is best to visit a professional for the treatment of serious illnesses. However, including turmeric in your daily diet can only be beneficial (but not in excess). You can consume it in the form of seasoning for your regular dishes, or drink it along with warm milk at night.

If you want to use it for external application, mix some turmeric with half a cup of water and stir it in while on low flame. Let it simmer until it turns into a paste. Once it cools, apply it on sore joints and wash it off after 15 minutes.
