Turmeric… Voodoo Juice

Sooooo, most of you know I suffer from “The Arthur”… AKA arthritis…  in my right knee.  Arthur is truly the bain of my existence.  He causes me a good deal of pain on the daily and has forced me to reevaluate my athletic life.  He has also played a major role in my seeking out alternative forms of healing.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a HUGE believer in real, legit, medical doctors because… well… they’re doctors.  Plus, I’m a big proponent of #betterlivingthroughchemistry!  Loooooooove me some good pain meds…. and you can only get those from the real deal Grey’s Anatomy MD.

…I digress…. alternative medicine. I have found myself mildly open to the granola-ee ways of many of my peers due to Arthur’s annoying existence in my daily life.  At this point, I would try just about anything if I thought it would enable me to enjoy running again, or even just crawl into bed at the end of the day sans the nagging pain.

Enter Synchro Gold Turmeric Elixer… or as I call it, my voodoo juice.  I may be slow on uptake, but I had been reading about the anti-inflammatory properties of this wonder-herb and then like a sign from God a FB ad popped up in my feed for “Synchro Gold Turmeric Elixer”.  I chuckle as I write this because I am THAT girl that totally fell for a FB ad.  I mean…  the paid actors in the video said this stuff worked miracles for them!  Eeeeeverybody knows if it’s on the internet it has to be true so, I bit.  I ordered a two month supply of the stuff and I’m currently starting into my second month.  I am not sure if it is helping me just yet or not, but I did run 1.5 miles last week with minimal pain.  I don’t know if my voodoo juice will really work to allow me to run again, but I do know this herb has some proven benefits so I’ll probably keep up my consumption.  I also know that you are all anxiously sitting on the edge of your seats to know how well this particular voo-doo juice works so I’ll keep you posted!!!
