Anti-inflammatory Tea Recipe

As the seasons change, Lupus inflammation and pain can increase. It seems unavoidable and managing it is often challenging. Finding some natural, homeopathic ways to relieve pain is a helpful aid in caring for yourself. Ginger and turmeric both have anti-inflammatory properties, so we’re sharing a recipe for an anti-inflammatory turmeric tea.


Ginger and turmeric are two herbs touted for their therapeutic benefits. According to the NCBI, both of these naturally growing roots have anti-inflammatory properties and offer many other health benefits. Incorporate ginger and turmeric into recipes, drinks, or even take them in pill form.

Turmeric may reduce chronic joint pain and has long been used as a treatment. Ginger offers anti-nausea, digestive, and respiratory benefits in addition to its anti-inflammatory abilities.
