I think that chewing on fresh sugar cane stalk is just about as good a treat as a person can get . :)

It seems that we have my kidneys heading the right direction once again. Started taking another herbal supplement & on Tues. i noticed more energy & got more work done,finally. Pain level in kidneys is gradually decreasing too,which makes every thing a bit better. Must be getting all those chemical sweeteners flushed out. Hoping for a continued improvement in 2016. HAPPY NEW YEAR to all,be careful of what you eat & drink,good health is very desirable. :)

Indeed answered prayers are good news ! Not only has the daytime energy increased,but sleeping at night has been much improved. With both kidneys hurting,it's like having 2 back aches at the same time which has made good sleep difficult. Of course we all know that multiple nights of lousy sleep leads to lousy daytime ability too. If only our neighborhood had remained quiet last nite,sleep would have been nearly uninterrupted from last night to this morning. Some folks apparently thought that 2015 needed to be scared out of here,such a ruckus to jar one out of good sleep !! I think they scared the warmer temps right out of here too,just looked at the forecast :eek2: we are supposed to have 10* on Wed. morning :shock: Oh well,it is January after all,time to tweak the coal burners for more output,stay warm & look for Spring to come in a few months. Thanks to all for the prayers,your continued prayers for improving health will be desired & appreciated much. Even with this kidney issue,we are very happy with God's blessings thruout 2015,looking to see what is in store for 2016,this may be THE yr. :D :dancing:

I've been using the turmeric and honey paste (with pepper added) and I'm seeing a quite noticeable drop in my arthritis pain level.

I've been hearing about turmeric use quite a bit lately in dealing with arthritis pain. At Melissa's family Christmas get together, her older brother ( in his mid 60's) was telling me of his daily use of turmeric and how it's helping him cope with pain.

I'm not happy with the sides affects of daily use of aspirin and acetaminophen for my arthritis. I'll have to give turmeric a try.

That is great news Windy. I hope the new year brings much improvement.
I have been using turmeric as well it helps. After these holidays are over now I am going to attempt the paleo diet. I have dabbled a bit and I have found dairy really affects my arthritic joint pain. If I drink milk I am more sore. especially in the am.

My wife uses turmeric in soups & stews too,besides the good flavor there are the health benefits that go with it.Since i no longer use any pain meds, turmeric is quite the miracle herb for me. :D Isayre,it's good to hear that it is also working well for you,not any surprise tho. For those who may be trying this pain relief for the first time, we mix turmeric,honey & black pepper together. I like when it forms into a peanut butter consistency but it can be used in various levels of liquid vs. solid.

There is science with regard to the addition of the black pepper. Turmeric by itself has almost zero "bio-availability" (meaning it passes right through you without being absorbed), but an isolated chemical constituent of black pepper (called piperine) dramatically increases its bio-availability.

Thanks Isayre,i am glad you were able to find the science of why/how it works. Our oldest son is the one who does the studying of this stuff & relays the info to us,he is the one who got us started on this natural pain relief. I don't remember all the science of it,i just know the formula works. :D The info you posted is very good for those who may be trying this herbal formula for the first time. Don't skip the black pepper or the benefits of the turmeric will be greatly diminished.

I just saw this thread.
Interesting about the Turmeric and Pepper remedy. I used to be interested in herbal lore.
Now about your kidneys. As you may know I have been on dialysis for over a year now. Some days are passable. Some are really, really bad.
You MUST CUT OUT foods that are high in potassium and phosphorous. They are really bad for kidney function. Tomatoes and bananas, for example; are really high in both substances.
You can have them as special treats every now and then.
I hope that you don't have to suffer what I have had to so educate yourself. I wouldn't wish this on anybody.
