Turmeric / Curcumin . . . Ginger capsules . . . Magnesium . . . perhaps Berberine (it sure seems to help me) . . . .

Avoid vegetable & seed oils and eating out as most foods out are doused or cooked in vegetables oils and they can contribute to inflammation. Canola oil is one of the worst. Soybean oil, too.

Olive oil is an exception but it should never be used in cooking, only to add to food just as you are serving it on the plate. It should not get hot.

Ghee (from grass-grazed cattle), cold pressed refined Coconut oil, avocado oil for sauteeing all have a higher smoke point and are stable so as not to oxidize when heated.

Same with animal fats that are actually good for us when the animals are raised well (not in industry warehouses) but out in the open with care.

Read Nina Teicholz' book: The Big Fat Surprise & see her presentations on YouTube. She researched the effects of fats on inflammation for ten years.

Are you taking binders?

Have you tried skullcap or boswellia? CBD is great too. I am always to get head inflammation down and those are the three supplements I am using.

Keikko, did not try any of the three things you mentioned.

So far I was taking turmeric and some one suggested Serra pep tase which I am planning to try today.

I like Select CBD. I take the mint one because it also has rhodiola and ashwaganda. It's also a little less expensive than others and has more CBD in it. I like the 1000 mg strength.

You take it orally.
