In fact, it’s estimated that in 2014 around 60% of Americans were living with a chronic condition1. What seems to be causing it all is chronic inflammation, which over prolonged periods of time does more harm than good. But how can one combat it in a natural way?
Searching for a remedy that works can be an uphill battle – long waiting times for appointments, relying on painkillers, or simply having to forgo your favorite activities. But luckily, there is hope in the helpful properties of curcumin, which is a natural compound extracted from turmeric.
