    In Japan, they've learned that turmeric, an antioxidant, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory spice, helps with arthritis by soothing joints -- and it's even been shown to promote weight loss. Just add a half-cup of turmeric to a warm bath.

    Turmeric is a wonder anti-inflammatory spice. Use it on your food by the teaspoon, take it in a pill form powder or extract or as a recommend, put some directly into water and drink it.

    Cayenne Pepper though a nightshade can be found in many topical remedies or creams. Try out a small area and see how you respond.
