Turmeric & Cancer

Turmeric is a mild flavored spice – found in nearly all grocery stores.  It has been an active part of my diet since my 2007 diagnosis of breast cancer, and even now with a clean bill of health, it is still one of my most used flavorings in my spice rack.

All foods have their own healing properties. So to combat my diagnosis with breast cancer I utilized as many cancer-fighting foods as possible in my day-to-day diet.  I spend hours upon hours researching these foods through books, the internet, and any other source I could find.

My book, Wellness Wisdom includes those findings with over 60 foods highlighted, simple recipes, cooking advice, tips, and even pointers on things you should consider avoiding.  Order your copy today to discover more about nature’s gift to us: Food!

Here is another study supporting that the active ingredient in turmeric has a unique ability when it comes to its interaction with cancer cells.

Scientists at the University of Leicester, funded by Hope Against Cancer, are pioneering the use of a common curry cooking ingredient to target cancer cells.

“Previous laboratory research has shown that curcumin, from turmeric, has not only improved the effectiveness of chemotherapy but has also reduced the number of chemo-resistant cells which has implications in preventing the disease returning.
