Turmeric and Oesophagical Cancer

About 2 months go I couldn'tkeep food down an had lost 12 kgs in less than a month. I thought and hoped it was an hernia. But when it all turned into projectile vomiting as soon as I tried to swallow I decided it was time to see the doctor . That same day while waiting I read an article in the Irish Time about a study done in Cork regarding oesophagical cancer and the effects of Turmeric (one of the component of Indian Curry). Lab tests showed that it killed the cancerous cells on contact. Waiting for the different tests (Gastrocopy, Biopsy, Scan, Pet, Luminiscence etcc...) I started to take 2 tea spoons o Turmeric, mixed with 1 table spoon of Manuka Honey in 2 to 3 table spoon of natural yogourt 3 times a day. Even before the results of test were back I was able to start eating, keeping the food down again and stop the weight loss. Since then I have had 2 sessions of chemotherapy but every evening before going to bed I still  take my concoction.  Ps I don't know if it is  side effects (Turmeric and Saffran gives the yellow color to the rice in theSpanish Paella) but I have also now a very natural looking tan!

Hello,

I read your article and decided to write to you to ask for your help. My mother has oesophagical cancer too and i've read that turmeric (curcuma longa) fights this disease. You say you have taken 2 tea spoons o Turmeric, mixed with 1 table spoon of Manuka Honey in 2 to 3 table spoon of natural yogourt 3 times a day.I've found here in Portugal in a homeopate pharmacy turmeric capsules. Is this the same thing? Where have you found the turmeric and manuka honey?

Please help me as fast as you can. I know you understand my problem.

Thank you.

Nanda

Turmeric (Curcumin) has been show to reduced cancer tumors in colon, breast and lung.  Check the link attached.  We take a daily supplement and try to cook w/ it.  The studies are very impressive.http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=

Thank you very very much for your quick answer.

The daily supplement i found here where i live is the one in the following site.  Could you take a look and tell me if you know it and how many pills per day? And how to take them (they are capsules and my mother can't swallow them).

Hi Nanda.

Yes Turmeric is one of the component of Curry. It is also used with Safran to color rice in some dishes like Paella. I buy it in powder form in the spice and herbs departement of a supermarket but get better value buyining it by weight in an Indian products shop. Good luck to your Ma.

If she can't swallow capsules, the mixture of Turmeric powder with natural yogourt and honey can be made in a fluid paste that can be sipped. If you can't find Manuka try Accacia honey witch is less cristaline and more fluid.

Hi Lecorse,

I'm glad to hear that you are at home and know everything will be ok with you. I see you are a positive person and the funny thing is that my mother is very positive too. I feel that one day we all will meet and have a good time  (sorry if my english is not so good...).

Thank you for your help about my mother. She is taking turmeric (the powder of 1 capsule-372 mg- mixed with 2 table spoons of natural yoghurt  - she doesn't like honey) twice a day.  Next tuesday she will go again to hospital - a group of doctors will decide what to do:surgery or any other treatment.  She has already made endoscopy, TAC and PET.

I feel a little lost.  So, any advice from you will be welcome.

If you need anything from me, just ask too, ok?

Nanda
