{Happy Birthday with a Pain Free Back}

Good news is that I was able to celebrate my Birthday with a Pain Free Back!
That in itself was the BEST gift one could wish for after more than a week of excruciating pain.
Because of my chronic kidney disease I cannot take any over the counter medication and neither did I want to start again on opiates, prescribed by my doctor. 
That's what I took in the end of 2009 when I was diagnosed with severe mid back arthritis...(?)
It resulted in being completely paralyzed, due to a rare auto immune disease and only with  Prednisone I was able to move again. But after taking that for about two years, my kidneys paid a price for curing this Polymialgia rheumatica.
So I'd rather tough it out and take nothing, except my daily supplement from +Costco Wholesale the Youtheory Turmeric capsules that come with 180 in a pot.
Will show more below...
First a few Birthday dinner pictures...
Sorry for the poor quality... snapshots taken by husband Pieter with my iPhone, he even left out a friend...
I wore two layers of cashmere, a sleeveless mock neck and the very thin sweater with poetry that I showed in a previous post: {Cashmere Words of Wisdom & Update} 
Feeling doubly warm with this score from Last Call by Neiman Marcus that I also wore when I did FaceTime with Mom, two days before her death...
Since we had to arrange things last minute, due to my condition and not knowing if I would be able to sit through such a 5-course dinner, we were in a cozy group of four friends. Very special evening though!
At Ristorante da Maria from +Dublin Farm "Come Home To The Country" I always do eat the dessert as well. Even being diabetes type 2... 
Here they just served mine with the birthday candle on top.
This was the choice of dinner and Pieter and I opted for the salmon.
Turmeric by Youtheory from Costco. Just click the hyperlink to go to my Pinterest board for further info after clicking on the photo!
This is what I have been taking during the time of my excruciating back pain and it sure did give me some relief! Usually I take one tablet per day but I went to two.
Turmeric seems to be an excellent anti-inflammatory support and also is good for your kidneys. Just click the hyperlink.
We might indeed be able to learn a great deal from countries where this has been used for centuries, such as India, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and as part of Ayurveda and other branches of traditional medicine.
Youtheory® Turmeric Advanced Formula features Curcumin C3 Complex® - a patented turmeric extract that contains minimum 95% curcuminoids.

Costco just had as discount on these and I did stock up and will also mail some to my youngest sister in The Netherlands who suffers from Fibromyalgia.

  16. OH Mariette,
    Many thanks for this post, I suffer from fibromyalgia too and some days it becomes hardly bearable but I don't take anything by fear of side effects.
    I will go to my bio-shop tomorrow and buy turmeric.
    How wonderful to spend an birthday party with friends and enjoy it fully with no pain.
    My, you must have gone through something with your kidney failure.
    I sincerely wish you a great health from now on with no pain :)
    Keep well, hugs from France

  22. Happy, Happy Birthday, ma chère Mariette. I'm so honored to share birthdays w/you and my favorite President, Ronald Reagan.

    Although I never speak of it on my Blog, I know a little something about chronic pain, as you well know, having suffered from Fibromyalgia for many years; however, I started taking something in the spring that has done wonders for me. It's called "Relief Factor." It's all natural and you can find it on line. I can't tell what a difference it has made for me. Perhaps it will work for you, as well. If you decide to give it a try, let me know.

    Big Hugs to my Favorite Birthday Girl,

    Gros bisous,
    M-T

    1. Dearest Marie-Thérèse,
      Yes, it is an honor for sharing birthdays!
      Well, living with a rare auto immune disease that causes Polymialgia Rheumatica, I might have to heed myself for the rest of my life. But this Turmeric supplement with its 95% Curcuminoids seems to work well for me.
      I've checked out the product you mentioned, the Relief Factor, but that seems to have a lesser amount of 18% Curcuminoids.
      Whatever works, we have to go for it and looking forward to many more Birthdays together!
      Hugs,
      Mariette

  23. Happy birthday, Mariette! Sounds like you had such a nice, cozy celebration with your friends :-) I'm so happy you are now pain free! Turmeric is something I saw a lot in Japan, but I never really paid attention. As I have back pain issue, your post made me very interested in it. Will look into it in more detail. Thank you for sharing this! Hugs xoxo

  24. My dear friend Mariette:
    I'm so glad you had a wonderful and happy birthday with Pieter and friends. so nice to see you happy and smiling. I'm sorry you had pain in your back, but so glad to know you are doing much better. I've been also taking Tumeric because the benefits are great, but next time I go to Costco, I will buy this particular brand you recommend here. Thank you for sharing this with us.
    I send you a big hug and I wish you a blessed day. <3

  27. Happy belated birthday Mariette. A lovely cosy celebration!
    I've heard about turmeric tablets, but never really looked into it, thanks for sharing.
    Glad you're feeling better.

  28. Dearest Mariette,
    Happy, Happy Birthday, my dear one -(sorry this is late)! Oh, you do look lovely in your warm cashmere, celebrating with your sweet friends - the best kind of celebration! Good food and good friends = happiness! Also, so glad that you are feeling better to enjoy this birthday. Thank you for the information about tumeric. I have been learning about the health benefits of this and want to try it for my chronic shoulder pain. So much better to have a healthy alternative to synthetic medications. Wishing you a lovely week leading up to Valentine's Day.
    Hugs to you xxoo

  30. Happy belated birthday. Glad you were able to enjoy a nice evening out. A friend of mine has an autoimmune disease and she makes her own powder from fresh tumeric which she adds to everything. She gave me a bottle which I sprinkle in some of the food I make. I want to try a warm almond milk recipe I just came across that also includes tumeric. Have a good weekend, Tammy
