Cancer. It’s a word no one wants to hear. Especially if it is directed toward YOU. It can be equally devastating when a loved one hears the word from a health care provider.
When I was told I had cancer, my whole world changed.
I have never returned to the person I was.
For some, that is a scary statement, but looking back, it’s not a bad thing. I am better now. I am stronger, wiser, HEALTHIER, and having cancer has burned away all the inconsequential things in my life, all those things that really weren’t important and have helped me to focus on what is important.
Now, it wasn’t easy, not by a long shot. I didn’t know about all this health stuff I am able to share with you back then. All I knew is what my doctors told me and being terrified, I followed blindly, every step of the way.
However, while stumbling down that road, I started peeking at alternatives, and what I found was a WEALTH of information that surprised and encouraged me.
Today I want to tell you about one thing I found that will amaze you if you haven’t heard of it before. If you have, perhaps you will find something new that you didn’t know before. Perhaps something that might help you also.
Do you like Curry? Do you like English Curries, Indian and Middle Eastern food? The spicy, pungent, aromatic smells and exotic flavors from those distant, bright and interesting parts of the world?
If you have cancer or want to prevent cancer (and a host of other things) Turmeric, a major component in curry and all those types of food, can be your best friend!
More specifically Curcumin, which is a compound found within the Turmeric.
Curcumin is a very powerful Antioxidant. Used for centuries in Ayurvedic Medicine (an ancient Indian medical practice) as an anti-inflamatory. Over the last 50 years or so there have been studies too numerous to mention that have shown that Curcumin slows and stops the enzymes in the body that cause inflammation. So the Ayurvedic practitioners had it right, science has now proved it! It’s funny how you find so many things that traditional (in the sense of the more ancient) medicine has known for so long, now being proven by science.
Turmeric(curcumin) contains anti-oxidants that can prevent free radical damage to cells. (Cells damaged by free radicals are more prone to becoming cancerous). These antioxidants are stronger than vitamin C and E and fight the most powerful oxidants in our systems. The curcuminoids in Turmeric also help support the functions of healthy blood and liver, and our joint health. This covers a lot of the major functions of the human body, all in one little supplement.
A few areas where curcumin has been found helpful are: diseases of the vascular system, type II diabetes, arthritis, and Crohn’s disease, among others.
Turmeric has an antioxidant activity and can prevent blood flow to cancer cells.It has been helpful in fighting breast, prostate, colon, and skin cancers.
It has been used for centuries in India to treat stomach problems, being soothing for heartburn, nausea, and peptic ulcers. It helps stimulate bile production, which prevents gallstone formation. It is a proven liver detoxifier.
Other uses are topical. as Turmeric has naturally occurring antiseptic properties. It can be used to help cuts, burns, and scrapes heal more easily. It has been used to treat atopic dermatitis and psoriasis. It can also be used for oral health as a tooth paste.
Another promising area is in the treatment of Alzheimners as Amyloid plaque in the brain aggravates Alzheimer’s disease. Turmeric can help remove it from the brain. This can help prevent Alzheimer’s Disease or slow its progression. The wonderful thing is, if you try it, it won’t hurt you. What have you got to lose….NOTHING, and everything to gain.
While fighting Stage III Triple Negative Breast Cancer I came upon this article at GreenMedInfo.com .
……….. please take a moment watch this short (not even 3 minutes) video What is the #1 Natural Compound for Cancer……
You better believe I sat up and took notice. And immediately got myself some Turmeric. With TNBC, you don’t have a lot of choices. So I was open to trying most anything. I began taking Curcumin supplements and have done so every day for over three years now. I learned that with the addition of healthy fat (coconut oil in my case) and something called Bioperine (a component of black pepper) the curcumin is made more bio-available to your system.
Once again, the ancient, and not so ancient Ayurvedic practitioners got it right. And if you look at recipes using Turmeric, almost all of them have healthy fat in the form of coconut or ghee and some black pepper included in them.
My message here is that there is too much evidence out there to show that curcumin is an effective substance against many human ailments to not take it seriously. It is harmless to take and frankly, I adore Indian and turmeric spiced food! In my opinion it is the #1 supplement in my anti-cancer arsenal!
Our local Whole Foods and some of the smaller natural food stores carry fresh turmeric root. – a great way to get turmeric into your body – I have some in my fridge now, grated and stored in vodka for cooking purposes. I also have some stored in raw honey, and I continue to buy and use fresh when I can find it.
Here is a GREAT recipe for something called GOLDEN MILK – it is easy and comforting and delicious. I have made this many times and you can add other spices to it, a touch of raw honey, all according to your taste. You can also use fresh grated turmeric if you have it.
I have powdered turmeric in the spice cabinet, and I take supplements daily.
One word about supplements. Be careful what you are getting. READ YOUR LABELS – the cheapest supplement is many times a waste of your money and cut with fillers and things you don’t want to put in your body.
