(Newswire.net — January 18, 2017) Las Vegas, NV — Swimming is one of the healthiest physical activities that many people engage themselves in nowadays. However, just like other physical activities, it may also make enthusiasts or swimmers susceptible to certain types of health problems.

Swimmers may potentially benefit from the use of turmeric against an ear infection, such as swimmer’s ear. This condition is due to the accumulation of excess water or moisture in the ear canal. While it usually affects swimmers, anyone who swims may also be affected by it.

If not properly addressed, the swimmer’s ear may lead to painful consequences. The ear is located near the brain, and when infection takes place, it may easily travel to the brain. If left neglected for a long period, it may lead to the development of a serious disease.

Otitis externa is the medical term for swimmer’s ear, and it causes symptoms that are similar to a middle-ear infection. Individuals who suffer from it usually experience a feeling of fullness in the ear. There are other symptoms such as crackling sounds in the ear while eating or talking. There are also those who have trouble eating and swallowing because of the condition.

This type of ear infection may also cause an ear ache, which is characterized by discomforting and sharp pain in the ear. Sufferers may also experience slight redness and swelling in the ear canal, which can be quite painful when touched.

Turmeric is one of the natural alternatives believed to be helpful to individuals with swimmer’s ear. This ancient spice has long been used as a natural alternative for a wide range of medical conditions.

It is believed that many of the potential benefits turmeric may offer come from its polyphenol called curcumin. This phytochemical contains a variety of ingredients which are believed to offer antibacterial, antioxidant, antiviral, antiseptic, antibiotic, anti-carcinogenic, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Sufferers of swimmer’s ear may consume turmeric milk on a daily basis. This may be made by combining milk with turmeric. This spice has potential anti-inflammatory properties that may help to decrease swelling and redness in the ear canal.

There are individuals who use supplements to take advantage of the potential benefits of curcumin. Curcumin supplements come in varying ingredients and quality.

Some of the most recommended curcumin supplements contain a black pepper extract called piperine. This potential bioavailability-enhancing ingredient may function by increasing the delivery of curcumin inside the body. Thus, the combination of these two natural ingredients is believed to make supplements more potentially therapeutic.
