Turmeric has several benefits, but the reason why this yellow spice is of interest to women with pelvic pain is studies suggest turmeric and its compounds may be able to help treat the condition. The anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric are thought to reduce pain and swelling. Experts in integrative medicine also suggest turmeric helps maintain healthy estrogen levels and apparently turmeric is a great painkiller without side effects. A turmeric latte is therefore a great drink to have, especially in the colder winter months!
