Cinnamon and symptom relief

Hi,

Just wanted to do a share. I have just had a pretty horrible nine days. I don’t know if anyone else gets this and I am sure that many do, when you get the symptoms of confusion, depression and anger at the same time. I have had this for the last nine days and, for me, it is one of the most frustrating and debilitating set of symptoms that I get. I woke up about nine days ago in an absolute rage. I think that I had overdone things the prvious day. I had a go at about four people and pretty much couldn’t do anything for the whole week. By the end of the week, I had got so depressed that I just didn’t know what what to do. I have taken cinnamon in the past, so I thought I would give that a try. I took about half a teaspoon in hot water and almost immediately these symptoms started to subside. Over the last couple of days I have been taking this twice a day and my mood and cognition has got a lot better. I must have a lesion in a part of the brain (the limbic systsem?) that deals with emotion. I know that cinnamon has really good anti-inflamatory properties, so it must be helping to relieve the inflamation.

I just wanted to share , just in case anyone else finds this helpful.

Thanks,

Adrian :slight_smile:

Thanks for sharing this, I will defo give it a go :slight_smile:

Great, Thanks for sharing, I might try this.

Good. Try it. I feel a lot better. Don’t use too much Casia cinnamon though. Try and get Ceylon. :slight_smile:

Thanks for the tip :slight_smile:

No worries. I feel bloody marvellous compared to how I felt last week. :slight_smile:

…and - no disrespect intended so sincere apologies if that’s how my curiosity comes across - is just one week not a bit soon to report something as being beneficial ?!!

(…of course by the same token you may well be onto something ? )

Try a slice of lemon or lime

Hi Dom,

I have taken cinnamon before and I haven’t really noticed the benefits but it does have proven anti-inflamatory properties, as does tumeric and ginger. I had the symptoms for nine days and then I took the cinnamon, I could feel the symptoms subsiding almost immediately. They are conducting a trial at the moment in California as to the efficacy of cinnamon and MS. It’s health properties are very well known. I am not saying it is a panacea, I think that it has just helped with the inflammation and if it has then I am very happy with that and I will keep on taking it.

Hi Zoe, the taste is pretty disgusting. You could add honey. I just swig it down and think of the benefits.

Hope that this helps.

Adrian,

Thank you for the courteous response. Hope the cinnamon works wonders for you (…and if it helps inflammation, fantastic !!)

May well try this myself too, and see if it does something for me (…coz, Lord knows all sorts of pharmceuticals ain’t doing anything worthwhile )

Good luck!

Dom
