Read Time:2 Minute, 9 Second

New Delhi: Gone are the days when back pain was a concern for older adults – people aged 40 and above. Sad as it is, youngsters too struggle with back pain these days – and the lifestyle choices, weak immune system, and other underlying health problems stand accused. However, while diet is the key perpetrator that could make things go haywire, it is the one component that could work wonders to improve the state of your health. And there is one spice that can particularly have a positive impact on back pain. Keep reading to find out what it is.
Can diet help with back pain?
One of the best ways to manage back pain naturally is by making changes to your diet – including anti-inflammatory foods that alleviate pain and discomfort. One of the leading causes of back pain is sitting in the same place and in the same position for hours – be it working professionals or students or those accustomed to a sedentary lifestyle.
Over time, this increases strain on your back thereby triggering back pain. While excessive back pain can be mitigated with medication and physiotherapy, a mild form of the same can be treated with lifestyle changes – exercising, eating the right foods, and not sitting in the same place for too long, and so on.
On the diet front, experts recommend turmeric (haldi) for alleviating back pain.
Turmeric and back pain: The link explained
The golden spice from your mum’s masala box – which adds a bright colour to your milk, curries, and other preparations, has a warm effect – is a rich source of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties that could raise your health quotient significantly. These effects are attributed to curcumin, the anti-inflammatory compound that gives haldi its healing virtues.
Curcumin reduces inflammation, soothes back muscles, and alleviates pain over time. Be it in the form of haldi dudh (turmeric latte) or herbal tea or in your curries, haldi can be consumed in every way for maximum benefits.
Is turmeric the only anti-inflammatory spice?
Turns out, turmeric is not the only spice that comes with anti-inflammatory properties. Take a look at three others that can offer relief from inflammation.
