Turmeric for Cancer Cure

Turmeric, also known as yellow ginger or Indian saffron is a popular Indian spice with promising healing potential against cancer. It is widely cultivated in South Asia and an ingredient of curry powder. Curcumin found in turmeric gives Indian curry its distinct yellow color.

Turmeric has long been used in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine. Now, turmeric capsules, teas or liquid extracts are available in the market. Curcumin which is the active ingredient of turmeric has been the subject of medical studies for its medicinal effects including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiproliferative and antiangiogenic activities.

Related Medical Researches:

A study conducted by the University of Texas showed that curcumin inhibits the spread of breast cancer on mice to the lungs. The procedure involved four groups of mice. One group received no further treatment which served as a control. A second group was given the cancer drug paclitaxel (Taxol); the third got curcumin, and the fourth was given both Taxol and curcumin.

After five weeks, half of the mice in the curcumin-only group and a lower 22% of those in the curcumin plus Taxol group had evidence of breast cancer that had spread to the lungs.

This is a great difference from the 75% of the mice that got Taxol alone and 95% of the control group developed lung tumors.

Doctors Subhash Chauhan and Meena Jaggi, led a team of researchers from Sanford Research and the University of South Dakota in an in vitro study of the effect of circumin on ovarian cancer cells. The result showed that pre-treatment with circumin opened the defense of cancer cells making them more receptive to chemotherapy.

Knowing that curcumin is not readily absorbed by the body, the same group of scientists developed the nanoparticle formulation of curcumin called Nano-CUR. This nano-technology increases bioavailability as well as targeted delivery of curcumin into tumors. See complete report at http://molpharm.aspetjournals.org/content/72/1/29.full

As an antioxidant, curcumin inhibits the spread of free radicals and may even help prevent the damage they cause to healthy cells. In addition, curcumin reduces inflammation by lowering levels of two inflammatory enzymes (called COX-2 and LOX) in the body and stops platelets into forming blood clots.

The certain beneficial benefits seen in several independent test tube and animal studies, is indicative of hope “that curcumin can be our toughest defense to prevent, control, or kill several types of cancers, including prostate, breast, skin, and colon.” Although these results are still inconclusive, they are the backbone of our future undertaking in making our world a healthier place to live.

Supplements which enhance the immune system should be among your daily intake with curcumin. This is to boost your body’s defense while the spread of cancer cells are being suspended.

Take curcumin capsules with flaxseed oil on an empty stomach for faster absorption.

Simultaneous with juice-fasting, curcumin’s benefit would intensify since the body is assimilating pure vitamins.

Curcumin Protocol:

Take curcumin as indicated in the directions of the supplement manufacturer.

For those who want a sample protocol, here is one. If you notice, it starts from a smaller amount and then gradually increase per week. The is for you to see how does your body reacts before you finally decide to take the supplement further.

Week One: one gram of curcumin

Week Two: two grams of curcumin

Week Three: four grams of curcumin

Week Four (and thereafter): eight grams of curcumin

For our readers who happen to be taking curcumin, we would be glad if you share us your own protocols.
