Turmeric Alternative Cancer Treatment: Your Complete Guide

Turmeric alternative cancer treatment

“Curcumin acts against transcription factors, which are like a master switch. Transcription factors regulate all the genes needed for tumors to form. When we turn them off, we shut down some genes that are involved in the growth and invasion of cancer cells.”
– Bharat Aggarwal

12 Studies on Turmeric, Cancer, and Disease

1. Head and Neck Cancer – Doctors at UCLA recently found that curcumin, the main component in turmeric, appeared to block an enzyme that promotes the growth of head and neck cancer. (Study)_

2. All Cancers – Curcumin, the major phytochemical in turmeric, exerts anti‑proliferative, anticancer and anti‑inflammatory activities in various types of cancer cells. (Study)
3.  Arthritis – A study in 2006 at the University of Arizona study that examined the effect of turmeric on rats with injected rheumatoid arthritis. According to Horwitz, pretreatment with turmeric completely inhibited the onset of rheumatoid arthritis in the rats. (Study)
4. Skin & Breast Cancer – Rodent studies at the University of Texas indicate that curcumin inhibits the growth of a skin cancer, melanoma and also slows the spread of breast cancer into the lungs. (Study)
5. Breast Cancer – In this study, researchers demonstrated that curcumin “inhibits the growth of breast cancer cell lines in a dose dependent manner,…”  (Study)
6. Colon Cancer – When human colorectal carcinoma HCT-15 cells were treated with Curcumin, researchers found that it inhibited cancer cell proliferation and induced apoptosis (cancer-cell death) in a dose- and time-dependent manner.”  (Study)
7.  Thyroid Cancer – In this study, for the first time ever, it has been reported that curcumin inhibit metastasis of thyroid cancer cells.  Curcumin suppressed the viability of cancer cells as well as its cell attachment, spreading, migration and invasion abilities.  (Study)
8. Pancreatic Cancer This study found that Curcumin “significantly inhibited” the invasion and migration of pancreatic cancer cells. These results indicate that curcumin can inhibit the proliferation of TGF-β1-stimulated PANC-1 cells, it can induce apoptosis, and reverse the EMT.  (Study)
9-11. Aging and Heart Health 3 Studies found Turmeric equally as effective as exercise at slowing aging and protecting the heart.  (Study 1) (Study 2) (Study 3)
12. Alzheimers – An 83-year-old female patient, who developed progressive dementia, had started to exhibit disturbances of short-term memory and orientation, when she was 76 years old.  She had increasing difficulty in getting dressed, cooking, and coordination household tasks.  She wandered aimlessly around the house, had incontinence of urine.  After turmeric 764 mg/day (curcumin 100 mg/day) treatment for 12 weeks, her agitation, apathy, anxiety, and irritability were relieved. She began to tell about the need to urinate. She began to sing some songs and do knitting, which she used to do, and after taking turmeric for more than 1 year, she came to recognize her family again. (Study)

Woman Stuns Researchers by Healing Cancer with Turmeric

Vicky Stewart Cancer Turmeric - EndAllDisease

After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 and undergoing chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery to remove her tumour and one of her breasts, Vicky Sewart from Devon was advised to take Tamoxifen – a drug commonly issued during the post-cancer remission stage. 

However, Sewart refused.

Despite excessive warnings from MD’s who insisted that Vicky would surely not recover using superfoods that are commonly touted as ‘woo’ and ‘ineffective medicine’ by pharma-backed doctors, Stewart found amazing success by altering her lifestyle and taking in extra amounts of superfoods like turmeric each day. Stewart recalls to The Telegraph how her doctor repeatedly voiced concern over switching to a healthy diet full of turmeric to fight the cancer (one of many turmeric health benefits), telling her that it would do virtually nothing: “The doctors absolutely will not say that the diet is going to do anything to help the cancer in any way.” Four years later with absolutely no mainstream treatments, she is still cancer free with no signs of it coming back.  At the age of 44, Stewart is now the center of a major research project led by scientists who are downright fascinated by what she has done.
