Abstract

Arthritis, affecting over 58.5 million adults in the U.S., is characterized by joint inflammation, leading to pain and reduced mobility. While common treatments like NSAIDs and DMARDs help, they often have serious side effects and don't halt disease progression. Herbal remedies like turmeric and ginger offer promising alternatives with fewer side effects, supporting their increasing use in managing arthritis symptoms effectively. Further research is needed to integrate these treatments into mainstream care. This case report investigates the therapeutic effects of a homemade infusion consisting of turmeric powder, black pepper, and lemon in hot water on joint and musculoskeletal pain. A summary of studies regarding the efficacy of these herbs shows that they are promising. Several clinical studies support their role as an anti-inflammatory alternative for patients with arthritis. In this paper, the history of a 57-year-old female who experienced significant improvement in pain and mobility after daily consumption of this infusion over two weeks is discussed. This case suggests potential anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of the ingredients involved, supporting further clinical investigation.
